Tampa Bay tech, entrepreneur, and nerd events list (Week of Monday, May 20, 2024)

Here’s the “official unofficial” list of tech, entrepreneur, and nerd events for Tampa Bay and surrounding areas for Monday, May 20 through Sunday, May 26, 2024.

This week’s events

Monday, May 20

Monday at Alessi Kitchen, Tampa at 6:30 p.m.: Tampa Bay Data Science Group presents Unleashing the Power of AI for Real Estate – A Deep Dive.

Here’s the description:

This session dives into the nitty-gritty of leveraging AI for real estate. We’ll dissect the process of combining macro and microeconomic data sets with market trends and geospatial information. This process utilizes similarity scoring – a technique to analyze the distance between geographic regions and uncover hidden correlations. Additionally, we’ll tackle the exciting challenge of classifying emerging neighborhoods using AI. Imagine leveraging machine learning to pinpoint areas with a high concentration of rehabbed properties – a strong indicator of potential investment opportunities.

Thursday, May 23

Thursday at the Neon Temple, Tampa at 7:00 p.m.: It’s their Q2 Hacker Swap Meet! Here’s what they say:

Welcome to another hacker swap-meet! The Temple is collabing with your local Defcon chapter, DC813, for yet another wonderful round of hang-outs, barters, trades, and co-hacking!

Gather up all of the hacker and cyber stuff you don’t want anymore that is valued under $200. This can be, but isn’t limited to:
• Shirts from cons
• Slaps
• Hardware
• Tools
• Failed projects
• Books from certs you already passed
• Books that you already know

Put sticky notes or something on them indicating a price. Maybe print off a piece of paper indicating stuff you want/would trade for.

Load that stuff up in yo’ trunk, pick a parking spot on the side of the building and park. Or grab a table from inside or something.

You can trade, give stuff away, take cash, Venmo, cryptocurrency, chickens and goats, whatever.

Find out more here.

About this list

How do I put this list together? It’s largely automated. I have a collection of Python scripts in a Jupyter Notebook that scrapes Meetup and Eventbrite for events in categories that I consider to be “tech,” “entrepreneur,” and “nerd.” The result is a checklist that I review. I make judgment calls and uncheck any items that I don’t think fit on this list.

In addition to events that my scripts find, I also manually add events when their organizers contact me with their details.

What goes into this list? I prefer to cast a wide net, so the list includes events that would be of interest to techies, nerds, and entrepreneurs. It includes (but isn’t limited to) events that fall under any of these categories:

  • Programming, DevOps, systems administration, and testing
  • Tech project management / agile processes
  • Video, board, and role-playing games
  • Book, philosophy, and discussion clubs
  • Tech, business, and entrepreneur networking events
  • Toastmasters and other events related to improving your presentation and public speaking skills, because nerds really need to up their presentation game
  • Sci-fi, fantasy, and other genre fandoms
  • Self-improvement, especially of the sort that appeals to techies
  • Anything I deem geeky

About this list

How do I put this list together? It’s largely automated. I have a collection of Python scripts in a Jupyter Notebook that scrapes Meetup and Eventbrite for events in categories that I consider to be “tech,” “entrepreneur,” and “nerd.” The result is a checklist that I review. I make judgment calls and uncheck any items that I don’t think fit on this list.

In addition to events that my scripts find, I also manually add events when their organizers contact me with their details.

What goes into this list? I prefer to cast a wide net, so the list includes events that would be of interest to techies, nerds, and entrepreneurs. It includes (but isn’t limited to) events that fall under any of these categories:

  • Programming, DevOps, systems administration, and testing
  • Tech project management / agile processes
  • Video, board, and role-playing games
  • Book, philosophy, and discussion clubs
  • Tech, business, and entrepreneur networking events
  • Toastmasters and other events related to improving your presentation and public speaking skills, because nerds really need to up their presentation game
  • Sci-fi, fantasy, and other genre fandoms
  • Self-improvement, especially of the sort that appeals to techies
  • Anything I deem geeky

About this list

How do I put this list together? It’s largely automated. I have a collection of Python scripts in a Jupyter Notebook that scrapes Meetup and Eventbrite for events in categories that I consider to be “tech,” “entrepreneur,” and “nerd.” The result is a checklist that I review. I make judgment calls and uncheck any items that I don’t think fit on this list.

In addition to events that my scripts find, I also manually add events when their organizers contact me with their details.

What goes into this list? I prefer to cast a wide net, so the list includes events that would be of interest to techies, nerds, and entrepreneurs. It includes (but isn’t limited to) events that fall under any of these categories:

  • Programming, DevOps, systems administration, and testing
  • Tech project management / agile processes
  • Video, board, and role-playing games
  • Book, philosophy, and discussion clubs
  • Tech, business, and entrepreneur networking events
  • Toastmasters and other events related to improving your presentation and public speaking skills, because nerds really need to up their presentation game
  • Sci-fi, fantasy, and other genre fandoms
  • Self-improvement, especially of the sort that appeals to techies
  • Anything I deem geeky

About this list

How do I put this list together? It’s largely automated. I have a collection of Python scripts in a Jupyter Notebook that scrapes Meetup and Eventbrite for events in categories that I consider to be “tech,” “entrepreneur,” and “nerd.” The result is a checklist that I review. I make judgment calls and uncheck any items that I don’t think fit on this list.

In addition to events that my scripts find, I also manually add events when their organizers contact me with their details.

What goes into this list? I prefer to cast a wide net, so the list includes events that would be of interest to techies, nerds, and entrepreneurs. It includes (but isn’t limited to) events that fall under any of these categories:

  • Programming, DevOps, systems administration, and testing
  • Tech project management / agile processes
  • Video, board, and role-playing games
  • Book, philosophy, and discussion clubs
  • Tech, business, and entrepreneur networking events
  • Toastmasters and other events related to improving your presentation and public speaking skills, because nerds really need to up their presentation game
  • Sci-fi, fantasy, and other genre fandoms
  • Self-improvement, especially of the sort that appeals to techies
  • Anything I deem geeky

About this list

How do I put this list together? It’s largely automated. I have a collection of Python scripts in a Jupyter Notebook that scrapes Meetup and Eventbrite for events in categories that I consider to be “tech,” “entrepreneur,” and “nerd.” The result is a checklist that I review. I make judgment calls and uncheck any items that I don’t think fit on this list.

In addition to events that my scripts find, I also manually add events when their organizers contact me with their details.

What goes into this list? I prefer to cast a wide net, so the list includes events that would be of interest to techies, nerds, and entrepreneurs. It includes (but isn’t limited to) events that fall under any of these categories:

  • Programming, DevOps, systems administration, and testing
  • Tech project management / agile processes
  • Video, board, and role-playing games
  • Book, philosophy, and discussion clubs
  • Tech, business, and entrepreneur networking events
  • Toastmasters and other events related to improving your presentation and public speaking skills, because nerds really need to up their presentation game
  • Sci-fi, fantasy, and other genre fandoms
  • Self-improvement, especially of the sort that appeals to techies
  • Anything I deem geeky

About this list

How do I put this list together? It’s largely automated. I have a collection of Python scripts in a Jupyter Notebook that scrapes Meetup and Eventbrite for events in categories that I consider to be “tech,” “entrepreneur,” and “nerd.” The result is a checklist that I review. I make judgment calls and uncheck any items that I don’t think fit on this list.

In addition to events that my scripts find, I also manually add events when their organizers contact me with their details.

What goes into this list? I prefer to cast a wide net, so the list includes events that would be of interest to techies, nerds, and entrepreneurs. It includes (but isn’t limited to) events that fall under any of these categories:

  • Programming, DevOps, systems administration, and testing
  • Tech project management / agile processes
  • Video, board, and role-playing games
  • Book, philosophy, and discussion clubs
  • Tech, business, and entrepreneur networking events
  • Toastmasters and other events related to improving your presentation and public speaking skills, because nerds really need to up their presentation game
  • Sci-fi, fantasy, and other genre fandoms
  • Self-improvement, especially of the sort that appeals to techies
  • Anything I deem geeky

Wednesday, March 20

This particular Wednesday is packed with events, one of which is mine!

8:00 a.m., online: Data, Cloud and AI in Tampa present Living with Autonomous AI. This one’s about how “Robots with Autonomy” will likely play an important role in creating a sustainable future in areas such as maintaining our built environment, keeping a rapidly ageing population secure in their homes or keeping degraded land due to climate change productive.

2:00 p.m., online: Gen AI Tampa’s first meetup — Revolutionizing Predictive Models with Generative AI-Driven Feature. Extract new value from your predictive models with this expert panel, tailored to data executives. Join them for an insightful exploration of how Generative AI is reshaping feature engineering, automating the discovery of key variables, and elevating the performance of predictive models.

5:30 p.m., in-person at the Entrepreneur Collaborative Center, Tampa: Computer Coach presents A look at Diversity Equity & Inclusion in 2024! Join Computer Coach for a thought-provoking and insightful panel discussion as we delve into the dynamic landscape of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in 2024. In a world that continues to evolve rapidly, our understanding and approach to fostering diversity, ensuring equity, and promoting inclusion are more crucial than ever.

6:30 p.m. in-person at Kforce, Tampa: Tampa Bay AI Meetup presents How to build AI applications with Python and LangChain. Learn how to build an AI application using Python and LangChain. You’ll see how LangChain can help you build more sophisticated AI applications that can use additional data sources, “remember” what you told it previously, and provide structured output that your application can use. We think this session will take your AI app development to a whole new level!

7:00 p.m., in-person: CitySec is an unaffiliated collection of informal meetups for like-minded security professionals. CitySec groups meet to discuss topics of interest in a non-work, non-vendor setting; preferably while drinking.

About this list

How do I put this list together? It’s largely automated. I have a collection of Python scripts in a Jupyter Notebook that scrapes Meetup and Eventbrite for events in categories that I consider to be “tech,” “entrepreneur,” and “nerd.” The result is a checklist that I review. I make judgment calls and uncheck any items that I don’t think fit on this list.

In addition to events that my scripts find, I also manually add events when their organizers contact me with their details.

What goes into this list? I prefer to cast a wide net, so the list includes events that would be of interest to techies, nerds, and entrepreneurs. It includes (but isn’t limited to) events that fall under any of these categories:

  • Programming, DevOps, systems administration, and testing
  • Tech project management / agile processes
  • Video, board, and role-playing games
  • Book, philosophy, and discussion clubs
  • Tech, business, and entrepreneur networking events
  • Toastmasters and other events related to improving your presentation and public speaking skills, because nerds really need to up their presentation game
  • Sci-fi, fantasy, and other genre fandoms
  • Self-improvement, especially of the sort that appeals to techies
  • Anything I deem geeky
