Lightning Talks

Palmerston North Software Developers
27 Jan 2022, Thursday 5:30 PM. RSVP
Brew Union Brewing Co, 41 Broadway Avenue, Palmerston North

By popular request. Lightning talks are a series of 5 minute presentations from people who come regularly. The theme this time is "keystone cops projects": tell us about projects you have seen that were bizarre, weird, so badly busted they were funny etc. You can pick on your most unfavourite language, describe uncomfortable team dynamics, process or organisational oddness etc. We will probably go around the room and give anyone who wants a chance to say something. So bring your most (un)favourite story. Note change of venue: will try and book a courtyard table at Brew Union. This will be a less formal kick off for the new year. There is no data projector available (unless someone can bring a battery powered pico projector we can bean onto the white brick wall?)


Robyn Young: Developing and Retaining staff

Manawatu Tech CEOs
10 Feb 2022, Thursday 7:30 AM. RSVP

In this session we'll talk about how can you implement powerful personalization for your customers without having to learn machine learning. In the second half of the session we'll look into customizing the technology to make it applicable for your specific use cases followed by a QnA session where we'll have an AMA for attendees. Purnesh Tripathi (https://www.linkedin.com/in/purneshtripathi) is a Data Scientist at AWS, coming to Palmy specially for us. If you'd like to meet with him before, please contact him via LinkedIn. He is also keen for beer after, so you can ask him all the questions there weren't time for during the meetup.
