  • December 2021 - DevEdmonton JavaScript/Ruby Meetup

    Link visible for attendees

    The YEG Javascript Meetup, ExchangeJS is a gathering of Javascript minded folks, who want to discuss and further their exploration of this language that underpins the internet. We're being supported actively (and are supporting in turn) the YEG Ruby meetup, and the Dev Edmonton Society from an organizational and logistical perspective. You can find out more at https://devedmonton.com/ where you can find links to the Dev Edmonton slack, where most of our organization happens. If you're interested in a chat, doing a talk, or learning more about Javascript, check out the link above and get onto the Slack!

    --------------------------

    The talks for this month are:

    Working with Cloudflare Pages, Workers, and Durable Objects by Alex Wong (He/Him)

    This talk outlines my experience on building a simple web application using the Cloudflare Full Stack offering. We rely on Cloudflare pages to serve our static site, Cloudflare workers to handle serverless API calls, and
    Cloudflare workers Durable Objects to handle cross-worker consistency and persistent websocket coordination. Cloudflare Durable Objects are no longer beta and Generally Available as of November 15, 2021. Come if you're interested in getting a teaser of what life on the bleeding edge (network) is like.

    Javascript & Ruby Q&A Panel

    Come ask our panelists your burning Ruby and JS questions!

    --------------------------

    The meetup is sponsored by our community champions Jobber, Dotdash and Punchcard, and produced each month by the Edmonton JavaScript community. With COVID, we don't have as much need for sponsors at the moment, but we're always looking for support. If you want to support the Javascript and Ruby communities in specific, or devs in general, get in touch!

    For more information, join us on the Dev Edmonton Slack at https://exchangejs.com/slack, and visit exchangejs.com (http://www.exchangejs.com/). You can also find us on Twitter at@EdmontonJS, or leave a comment below!

  • Edmonton Women in Machine Learning & Data Science

    Needs a location

    We are pleased to announce the creation of the Edmonton chapter of WiMLDS. We aim to create a welcoming space for everybody, particularly women and gender minorities, to talk and learn about ML and DS.

    WiMLDS's mission is to support and promote women and gender minorities who are practicing, studying or are interested in the fields of machine learning and data science. We create opportunities for members to engage in technical and professional conversations in a positive, supportive environment by hosting talks, technical workshops, networking events and hackathons. We are inclusive to anyone who supports our cause regardless of gender identity or technical background. However, in support of our mission, priority for certain events and opportunities will be given to women and gender minority members.

    Our Code of Conduct ( https://github.com/WiMLDS/starter-kit/wiki/Code-of-conduct ) is available online and applies to all our spaces, both online and off.

    • Follow @Edmonton_WiMLDS (https://twitter.com/WiMLDS_Edmonton) on Twitter for Edmonton WiMLDS news or visit http://wimlds.org to learn about our chapters in other cities.

    • Women & gender minorities are invited to join the global WiMLDS Slack group by sending an email to [masked].

  • Open Hardware Meetup

    Needs a location

    What is Open Hardware?
    The Open Hardware Meetup is a place where all kinds of people can share an interest in the intersection of hardware, software, connectivity, and user experience. When combined, these elements create a new art which blends the lines of beauty and technology.

    Even as computing devices have become more powerful, the underlying technology is now more and more available for everyone. With a few mouse clicks, overnight shipping, and a few hours work, you can build your own versions of ground-breaking products based on simple open platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Beaglebone, Galileo, Edison, and more. Even better, you can create something that has not physically existed. It is the flexibility and power of computing, expressed in physical, tangible form.

    Who is it for?
    Everyone is welcome, from casual observers to nascent hobbyists to advanced techs. Presentations will range from beginner how tos, to highlighting cool projects from Edmonton and Alberta. There is almost always food before and drinks after. We’re always open to new speakers and topics as requested by our members.

    Examples of things we’ve done
    -learn to solder,
    -basics of arduino,
    -automated basketball robots from a local high school team
    -projected surfaces and their use in theatre set design,
    -magnetic computer displays for the visually impaired

    Examples of things we want to do
    -lighting, home automation, wearables, drones/navigation, 3D printing, arduino, raspberry Pi, beaglebone and other open hardware platforms.
    -workshops,
    -build days, similar to hackathon, where a group of people with varying skills create and finish projects
    -specialty sub-clusters where people can specialize in wearables, lighting and home automation, maker technology, and drones

    We welcome you to Open Hardware Meetup and together we’ll create wow.
