Discord Chatgroup
Thursday, April 25th 2019, 8:45PM

Hi crew,
My name is Bryan, & I'll be the event organizer for this going forward.
This is something that I was a part of w/ another group that was actually useful/helpful to some extent. Thought we'd try it here just to see how it goes. If nobody likes it, we can not have it.

Essentially, this is a support/stand-up chat group for those of us either currently int the throes of trying to develop a game, those interested in trying to start learning how to develop a game. or those that are just curious about what it takes to be a game developer here in Jax.

Attendance is OPTIONAL, but you're encouraged to come. Everybody has a different idea for their ideal game--don't be afraid to talk about it. It will
be just 45 minutes long, & officially end at around 9:30 PM(but if involved in a lively discussion, people are more than welcome to hang around). If you have to bug-out sooner, than don't feel bad. Life happens, & we're all aware of that.

RULES:
1. Absolutely, under no circumstances will there be any ridicule of someone's game idea or lack of progress in developing their current one. We all have lives we're trying to live (wife/girlfriend/significant other-kids-work-etc). This is designed to be completely free of that, & provide a place for aspiring developers to come & find refuge from the onslaught of the things that are hindering you from developing your ideal game.

2. Initially, everyone will have about 5 minutes to talk about their game, what they're planning to accomplish by/before the next meeting (or, depending on the work-life schedule that many of us have to contend w/). Obviously, you're going to get some feedback as to whether or not you should adjust the scope of your goals for the following week, but again, it's totally up to you if you choose to take that advice.

3. Respect gets respect. Disrespect will be shown the exit in a rapid manner. if you like an idea--ask the originator about it. Stealing an idea from another person w/o asking is HIGHLY discouraged.....

4. If you want to work w/ someone, we encourage you to do so. Members are more than welcome to use the Discord private message feature to inquire other members about collaborations. If you need help with something that you're working on & struggling w/, please, don't be afraid to ask for help from the other members who might have experience/background in what you're struggling w/.

We have a private server on Discord already set up. If interested, we can send you guys the link to it. I invite you guys that are interested to please come. There's no harm in at least checking it out.

Thanks

Jacksonville FL

This month, we are excited to have Man Zhang, Solutions Architect at Qubole, speaking!

Qubole delivers a Self-Service Platform for Big Data Analytics built on Amazon Web Services, Microsoft and Google Clouds. Qubole was started by the team that built and ran Facebook's Data Service when they founded and authored Apache Hive. With Qubole, a data scientist can now spin up hundreds of clusters on their public cloud of choice and begin creating ad hoc and/or batch queries in under five minutes and have the system autoscale to the optimal compute levels as needed.

Companies now need to apply machine learning (ML) techniques on their data in order to remain relevant. Among the new challenges faced by data scientists is the need to build get access to large data sets so that trained models can scale to run with production data.

Aside from dealing with larger data volumes, these pipelines need to be flexible in order to accommodate the variety of data and the high processing velocity required by the new ML applications. Apache Airflow and Spark addresses these challenges by providing a highly scalable technology for autoscaling big data engines.

In this presentation we will cover:

- Some of the typical challenges faced by data scientists when building pipelines for machine learning.

- Typical uses of the various big data engines to address these challenges.

- Real-world example using Apache Spark and Airflow to operationalize a recommendation engine

As always, we'll have a fun group with Pizza, Beer, and Refreshments!
Tentative schedule:

5:30 - 6:00 Socializing
6:00 - 7:00 Building Data Pipelines for Machine Learning
7:00 - 7:30 Questions and Closing Remarks

What is pair programming night? Glad you asked! It's a once-a-month meetup where you pair up with another developer during the development process. One takes the role of a driver while the other takes the role of a navigator.

Don't worry if you've never experienced it before, we'll have all the details. All you need is your laptop!

Don't have a project? Don't worry! Someone here will have one. We'll have a beginner and intermediate-level project outlined in case none of those interest you.

What is product design and why is it important? How can we make our products better?

What core principles can we follow to make our design "good"? What makes a design "bad"? Are these even terms we should use?

What are some real world examples of design principles in practice?

How can we know if our products are actually designed well?

Let's get together to listen to some industry professionals discuss what design is and then open it up for discussion.

JaxDUG - Gotchas in Implementing DevOps by Thomas Behnken
Thursday, May 9th 2019, 6:00PM
DiscoverTec
4887 Belfort Road
Jacksonville FL 32256

DevOps has become quite the buzz word in IT shops over recent years. However, what is DevOps? Release pipelines and cloud deployments, are those DevOps? If a company is embracing Agile, are they doing DevOps? What is needed to do DevOps? Should I staff a DevOps team? In this session we will talk briefly about the DevOps methodology, talk about the various tools and processes that companies can use to realize that methodology, and, some of the gotchas in implementing DevOps within an organization.

Thomas Behnken is an up and coming technologist who recently came back to the Jacksonville area. His passion is in using technology to improve the inefficiencies of the world and bring humanity closer to matching the Star Trek universe. He is a professional problem solver with a focus on customer service and results driven solutions. Currently he serves as the Team Lead of DevOps at One Call. Ever pursuing the DevOps adoption where ever he can, Thomas evangelizes DevOps to all those who will listen and seeks to coach others to their highest potential, with a focus on improving consistency and efficiency while reducing toil. Outside his work, Thomas spends most of his nights playing with his daughters and annoying his wife with new presentation ideas for when he is called upon to speak.

Join us at our monthly Meetup where we discuss various topics related to software development. Specific talk will be announced later.

If you are interested in speaking or hearing specific topics, let us know.
