Agenda for Generative AI focused 127th DevClub.lv

  • Antons Mislēvičs from C.T.Co will give a talk on “So you want to be a Machine Learning engineer in the age of Generative AI and Large Language Models?“.
    ChatGPT was released in the end of 2022 and immediately grasped a lot of attention. People started discussing what “magical” things it can do, how it is the first AI that “understands” our world, and that soon it will leave many people without their jobs. It quickly went even to extremes, that such technology is dangerous, and should be banned or controlled by governments. In this session we will analyze what of this is hype and what is real. We will look into what the technology behind ChatGPT is (Large Language Models, Generative AI), and how such AI models are being trained. This will help us to better understand what such models can do, what are some common problems, and what you should be aware of when introducing such models in your projects. In addition, we plan to discuss what the raise of Generative AI and Large Language Models means for Machine Learning engineers – what are the core challenges, and some foundational technologies/concepts you should be familiar with.
    (LanguageEnglish)
    Tags: : Generative AI, Large Language Models, Machine Learning, ML Engineering

Announcement of Quantum focused 122th DevClub.lv

HI!

This month, on a WEDNESDAY, we are meeting to explore a hot topic and what is often thought to be a future problem solver – quantum.

You are welcome to Quantum focused event on WEDNESDAY – September 27th 18:30, at Microsoft office – Zaļā iela 1, 4th floor

Agenda for Quantum focused 122th DevClub.lv

  • Maksims Dimitrijevs from the Center for Quantum Computing Science at the University of Latvia will give a talk on “Quantum computers and quantum programming”
    Quantum computers are a hot topic, and society thinks that breakthroughs in quantum computation can help us to solve many problems and improve the quality of life. The possible usefulness of quantum computers attracts many people into the area of quantum computation, and a lot of effort is put from both theoretical and practical sides to speed up advances in quantum computation.
    Today we will have an introduction to the topics of quantum computers and quantum programming. We will first check the basics of quantum phenomena and how these effects are used to perform the computation. We will see how ideas of quantum computers emerged and answer the following questions. What is a quantum computer? How can it be programmed? Which tasks can we solve on it? Are we there yet? Regarding the last question, we will check the market of quantum computing.
    (Language – English)
    Tags: Quantum Computers, Quantum Programming

    Maksims defended his PhD thesis on topics related to probabilistic computation, and after that transitioned to the area of quantum computation. The first steps in the direction of quantum computation were taken in courses of Prof. Andris Ambainis at the University of Latvia. The next active steps in the quantum journey started with QDrive project, where Maksims was teaching the basics of quantum programming to enthusiasts in different countries. The QDrive project resulted in the foundation of QWorld Association, and Maksims is one of the co-founders. Currently, Maksims works at the University of Latvia, Faculty of Computing as a docent and researcher.
  • Aleksandrs Belovs from the Center for Quantum Computing Science at the University of Latvia will give a talk on “Quantum Algorithms in our Life.”
    There has been a lot of different misconceptions surrounding the field of quantum computation. In this talk, we will try to give a very high-level non-specialist-friendly explanation of the essence of quantum computation. In particular, we will touch on the Shor’s algorithm that breaks the RSA cryptosystem, and demonstrate that the main ideas behind this algorithm have been used with astonishing success for more than a century.
    (Language – English)
    Tags: Quantum Computation, Shor’s Algorithm, RSA

    Aleksandrs is an associate professor at the Faculty of Computing and a leading researcher at the Center for Quantum Computing Science of the University of Latvia. His main research interests lie in understanding the fundamental powers and limitations of quantum computers.
  • Mārtiņš Kālis from the Center for Quantum Computing Science at the University of Latvia will give a talk on “Testing quantum annealing assisted machine learning.”
    When two fields intersect, our goal is to harness the strengths of both to create something remarkable. Yet, frequently, we are severely limited by the combined constraints of those fields. This is the case of quantum machine learning. Mārtiņš will demonstrate some of the hurdles you need to overcome to use the current generation of quantum devices even in toy machine learning applications. He will also show some glimmers of hope that keep the near-term quantum machine learning dream alive.
    (LanguageEnglish)
    Tags: Quantum Computing, Machine Learning

    Mārtiņš is a researcher trying to keep a cool head at the intersection of two hot fields — quantum computing and machine learning..

  • Hanno Jarvet from Jarvet Consulting will give a talk: “Going Beyond Agile: Influencing Business and Driving Change”
    You have experience in Agile methodologies and corporate change initiatives and find yourself in a position where you have more responsibility. You could expand Agile further and involve more of the business. Perhaps even make the whole organization Agile. How should you go about it in a non-naive way? How can you find some contextually appropriate ways to move your organization forward? Depending on your context and environment, different parts of the Agile methodology are appropriate (but insufficient).
    This talk will help you choose a contextually appropriate approach to drive change. We will look at Wardley Mapping, Strategic Sales and Business Model Canvases to understand how to look at systems and environments and act contextually appropriately to avoid running fool’s errands and pick the battles that can be won with the right tools.

  • How business value connects to product metrics and impacts customers in the long run
  • Why conducting product discovery alongside product delivery is crucial for success

  • Vasiliy Popov from C.T.Co will talk about three important things that can make or break digital products: product thinking, product philosophy and product validation.
    It’s no longer enough to release your apps or services and hope for the best. You need to engage your users by establishing a communication language, development transparency, and direct feedback channels. But even if you just started working on your product or startup, thinking that you know best what the users need is a sure way to kill your startup quickly. That is why empathy mapping, prototyping, user testing and user validation should be part of your daily vocabulary.

Agenda for Frontend focused 119th DevClub.lv

  • Roberts Ivanovs from Provencraft “Rust on the frontend”.
    Dive beyond JavaScript-based frontend frameworks, and explore the potential of Rust-based web frameworks. Ivanovs will detail their real-world readiness and dissect the intricate WASM-JS interplay. He will share his experiences with WASM, Rust and the Leptos web framework, discussing its strengths and challenges and how it compares with the JS ecosystem.
    (Language – English)
    Tags: Web Development, Rust, WASM

    Roberts Ivanovs is an experienced software developer specialising in Rust, Solidity, and TypeScript. Apart from his professional work in the web3 space, he leads a vibrant Discord community of developers and entrepreneurs and engages in Rust-based networking and backend development projects.
  • Edvins Antonovs will give a talk on “Maximising performance with React code-splitting techniques”
    Building web applications with React is fun, but the JavaScript bundle size can become significant with growing application sizes, leading to slow load times and poor performance. To mitigate this problem, we will use several code-splitting techniques in React that allow you to split your code into smaller chunks, reducing the initial JavaScript bundle’s size and improving your application’s performance.
    (Language – English)
    Tags: React, Web Performance

    Edvins has over 8 years of commercial experience working as a front-end engineer, predominantly in product companies and early-stage startups in the United Kingdom. During his career, he built products from scratch, led the front-end team, posted memes, and scaled the existing front-end applications. He enjoys writing blog posts about front-end engineering and learning in public in his digital garden.
  • Boris Goriachev from Helpdesk.media will give a talk on “You might want to try Svelte”.
    We have used svelte in production for a year now. It is safe to say — svelte is an awesome peace of software, that does get a lot of things right. I will talk you through some of my favourite things in svelte and share some real life cases.
    This talk might be interesting for frontend devs who might want to explore things outside react/vue ecosystems.
    (LanguageEnglish)
    Tags: JS, Svelte, Frontend

    Boris has15 years of experience in web development, handling backends, frontends, and mobile applications. His preferred stack includes Ruby on Rails, Elixir, and Svelte (he switched from React a few years back).

Drawing from my hands-on experiences across diverse developer-related processes, such as sales, post-sales, technical support, and debugging, I’ll shed light on numerous overlooked inefficiencies within IT companies that persist simply because they appear deceptively reasonable.

Announcement of Game development focused 116th DevClub.lv

HI!

Probably you have heard that game made in Latvia – The case of the Golden Idol has been recognized as one of The 5 Best PC games in 2022. We think this is a huge achievement and decided to look for more people from the LV game industry to get to know their stories and experiences. And we found that we have LV success stories not only in the entertainment game field but in between “serious games” as well.

Agenda for Game development focused 116th DevClub.lv

  • Mārtiņš Ceplis from Pahris Entertainment will share some tales from the development of an indie game in “Space Wreck stories”
    Probably everyone who has played a game wanted to make one at some point in their life, and these days it is as easy as ever before. To make a game, that is. Getting anybody to play it – that’s a whole another story.
    Join Mārtiņš on a short retrospect over the development of an average amateur indie game, likes of which there are thousands coming out every year. The talk is in form of a few curious stories that characterize the whole ordeal and, in the end, perhaps will paint a faint glimpse of what it’s like to be an average indie dev in ’23.
    Warning: you will not learn anything useful and this knowledge won’t help you make or sell games in any capacity.
