WIMP Events

Wimp meets every last Wednesday of the month for a topical meetup, and once a month around the 10th for a lunch meetup.

Upcoming Events

  • Humans Learning Machines Learning Humans (+ Potluck)

    Monday, July 24th, 2017 | 6:30 PM 4:00 AM

    Our next Meetup is our own Matt Sevrens, who recently posted to our Facebook list whether the content of this presentation would be of interest to the group and there was a resounding and positive YES.

    Matt's  background is primarily in natural language processing at a character level using deep nets, but the techniques apply across all types of data. He will be discussing practical applications of machine learning, machine learning in a broad sense and how to understand the algorithms from a human perspective. I'll be mainly focusing on the the interplay between machine learning algorithms and the people utilizing them. Should be tons of fun and probably open your mind to ideas you have probably not heard much about before, but is certainly something we should all know more about.

    PLEASE NOTE NEW LOCATION and IMPORTANT INFORMATION!

    WIMP meetings start at 6:30, so please be here promptly to avoid interrupting the presentation. Parking is available in campus parking lots and there is a limited amount of parking in the adjacent neighborhood in the evenings. Please note parking rules if you go that route.

    Please bring what you would like to snack on and share. We will supply pizza and water. No alcohol allowed on SRJC campus. Thanks.

    Please RSVP if you plan on coming. Thanks and we are looking forward to seeing you!

    P.S. We'll have some free Peachpit Dreamweaver CC, CS6 and Javascript books for folks who come early. :)

  • Beginner's Guide to GitHub + Potluck

    Monday, May 22nd, 2017 | 7:00 PM 12:00 AM

    If you aspire to be a better web developer or coder, you should probably be on GitHub. It provides access control and collaboration features such as bug tracking, feature requests, task management, and wikis for your projects, plus hosting at zero cost.

    But maybe you already know that GitHub is awesome, but are intimidated to try it out? Never fear, Quinn Supplee will be here to tell you how to get started and why it matters. 

    Open up a new world of development possibilities for all of your projects and clients in this informative presentation. This presentation will NOT be recorded so please plan to attend if you want to learn more about GitHub.
