Join us to brainstorm public speaking topics. At the end of the workshop, you’ll have a few topics that you’re confident about and excited about. 

You can give a Chadev lunch presentation on one of these topics, or you can give a talk at another event. 

Are you interested in public speaking, but you’re not sure what to speak about? Join us! Are you deathly afraid of public speaking and thinking, “%$#& no! I don’t want to speak publicly!” Join us anyway. We may just motivate you to overcome your fear of public speaking.

If you’re not sure what cost functions are and why they matter join us for this talk. If you do, River will be covering ground to keep you engaged as well.

Now a quick word from River:


Cost functions are everywhere. All website optimizations make use of cost functions (it’s the thing you want to minimize). All neural nets are trained using cost function optimization: Siri, Google Search, and IBM Watson. But cost functions aren’t only found in software. Every decision you make is a miniature cost function optimization; that is, a process of weighing and scoring options (and the acting on the “best” option based on your assumptions).

Andrew Rodgers has been working with advanced research networks for several years, and is going to share what innovations might be gained from these experimental platforms. Along the way he'll touch on how the Internet works, how it grew into what it is today, and how it might be improved in the future.

"What Andrew lacks in knowledge, he makes up for with excessive boorish slides." - an internet expert (Ted Stevens)

This week's talk is brought to you by Lamp Post Group.

As developers, we sometimes forget that real people are going to be using our apps. In this talk, Andrew Steele - a Front End Engineer, UX Enthusiast, and Writer - will guide site and app creators in the importance of telling a story with their products. Looking at empathy, user stories, and infusing personality and creativity into something as small as a single button, listeners will walk away with practical advice and tools to make the web human again, one interface at a time.
