CINNUG

Tuesday February 27th, Max Technical Training in Mason, OH, 6pm at our monthly CINNUG meeting, we welcome Suganthi Giridharan presenting on fire base and Xamarin.

Fire Up Your Mobile App!

Have you ever had an idea spark that would make a great mobile app? But when confronted with managing the data, authentication, and hosting, it's all too easy to give up on building the next million dollar product.

**Firebase to the rescue! ** This session will take a look at a Codemash conference app built using Xamarin Forms for the front end and Firebase for the back end infrastructure. You'll see how the app uses Firebase to store and sync app data, authenticate users using Google and Twitter OAuth providers, track analytics, and monitor app performance all in one central place.

You will leave this session with an understanding of how to integrate Firebase with your mobile front end.

Let’s go build apps!

Tuesday January 23rd, Max Technical Training in Mason, OH

6pm at our monthly CINNUG meeting, we welcome our own Phil Japikse with "Leaders Are Made, Not Born"

Leaders aren't born, they aren't hatched, and they don't apparate.  Leadership is a journey, one that involves hard work, practice, and a deep understanding of not only your team members but also yourself. I've led teams large and small throughout my 30 year career, and certainly made plenty of mistakes on the way,  But I've learned to fail fast, iterate, and continuously improve to create high performing teams across multiple verticals. In this session I share what I have learned over the years being a leader and being led.

Tuesday November 28th, Max Technical Training in Mason, OH

6pm at our monthly CINNUG meeting, we welcome Serge Doumit with "Machine Learning Techniques"

Today vast amounts of data is becoming available from many sources including the Internet and other digitization efforts. Due to the enormous scale of these data collections, it is becoming unrealistic to assume that any human supervision can play any significant role in making sense of or the classification of this data. This is where automated machine learning techniques play an important role in making sense with this information overload.
In this talk, we will briefly discuss machine learning techniques with emphasis on a particular algorithm: Latent Dirichlet Allocation (LDA). We will describe LDA's model, from data collection to the analysis of the output. We will break down the process of achieving a working prototype into manageable steps with focus on the technical/programmatic details behind each of the steps.

December meeting: In our November meeting we looked at how we can generate a QR code using data and also scan that QR code in this session. December meeting will be held on 14th December where we will continue the building process towards a Jan first week release date.

Our Steps for QR code generation

1. Capture data to share using Xamarin Forms page

2. Serialize data to JSON

3. Create QR code with serialized data

4. Parse QR code and render serialized data for adding to contacts.
