ACM Local Meetups

ACM Meetups are non-profit informal groups that meet regularly to discuss diverse topics in computer science such as predictive analytics, applied machine learning, statistical modeling, open data, data visualization, user experience, user research, and artificial neural networks. Meeting topics are varied and range from tutorials on basic concepts and their applications, to success stories from local practitioners and academic students, to discussions of tools, new technologies, and best practices. All are welcome to attend, to meet others, and to present their work.

ACM Meetups cultivate a new wave of local tech communities in key cities of the US, including:

We’re helping smart technical people set up new groups in other cities such as Raleigh/Durham, Houston, Austin, and Seattle. If you are interested in organizing an ACM Meetup near you, contact ACM Local Lead, Andrew Conklin, adconk@staff.acm.org.

ACM Case Studies

Written by leading domain experts for software engineers, ACM Case Studies provide an in-depth look at how software teams overcome specific challenges by implementing new technologies, adopting new practices, or a combination of both. Often through first-hand accounts, these pieces explore what the challenges were, the tools and techniques that were used to combat them, and the solution that was achieved.

ACM Case Study: Hootsuite: In Pursuit of Reactive Systems

Written by leading domain experts for software engineers, ACM Case Studies provide an in-depth look at how software teams overcome specific challenges by implementing new technologies, adopting new practices, or a combination of both. The latest installment covers Hootsuite, the most widely used SaaS (software as a service) platform for managing social media. In a roundtable discussion, Jonas Bonér, CTO of Lightbend; Terry Coatta, CTO of Marine Learning Systems; and Hootsuite developers Edward Steel, Yanik Berube, and Ken Britton talk about how Scala and Lightbend (which offers a reactive application development platform) were an essential part of a successful transition.
