JS Tech Talk: January Edition


Happy 2019! We are excited to announce our next JS Tech Talk event night, and the first one of the year. Special thanks to LoyaltyOne (https://www.loyalty.com/) for providing the space and delicious food and refreshments!! // TALKS 1. Amit Bronner - Machine Learning in Javascript Javascript is the most popular technology according to the last stackoverflow developer survey results. Machine learning is one of the important trends in the software industry today and tensorflow is the most loved framework, according to the same survey. Machine learning software is currently predominantly developed in python. Released in March 2018, tensorflow.js has opened up new possibilities for Javascript developers to build new models, use existing ones and innovate in new and exciting ways. This talk will review the state of machine learning software development in javascript and discuss its potential and limitations. Amit Bronner is a tech lead, architect and developer with 20 years of professional experience. Amit holds an MSc in AI and has experience with natural language processing, machine translation and information retrieval. 2. Andrew Louis - Building a Memex with Javascript In 1945, the Memex was supposed to be the ultimate personal library. In addition to storing information, users could navigate, organize, link, and share data. When Andrew found out it was never built, he set about building a modern version in Javascript. Andrew created dozens of importers for different services, organized the 10M data points into a graph schema, and built an API and frontend in Javascript. Andrew will go over the history of the Memex, how he built his own, and do a demo of what can be done with it. Andrew is a software developer from Toronto. After learning about the Memex and finding out that it was never built in 1945, he decided to try to build one of his own. Previously, he was the co-founder and CTO of ShopLocket, an ecommerce startup acquired in 2014. // SCHEDULE 6:00pm - Doors open.

JS BeerScript


We're BACK! Your Favourite Event (maybe, I dunno, I'm partial to it) Alcohol + Code = LOVE! BeerScript is our lightest event where like minds get together, have a pint, and talk javascript/coding. Feel free to bring your laptop, but there is no specific programming/talk portion to the event. We'll be at the Watson's for the last Wednesday of the month! Come talk JavaScript, Development, and Alcohol!

JS Code Club

Prerequisites: - A laptop with a web dev environment, including an editor and a local server - Some proficiency in JavaScript - A cheerful and inquisitive attitude - An appetite (for knowledge and for pizza -- thanks to New Relic for sponsoring us!) The speakers codes on the projector, and everyone in the room copies that code into their own laptops. You'll go home with an exciting new program, and if there's time left over at the end you'll do something cool with it and show a demo to everyone. Fun!
