What was the last paper within the realm of computing you read and loved? What did it inspire you to build or tinker with? Come share the ideas in an awesome academic/research paper with fellow engineers, programmers, and paper-readers. Lead a session and show off code that you wrote that implements these ideas or just give us the lowdown about the paper (because of HARD MATH!). Otherwise, just come, listen, and discuss.
As a Papers We Love chapter we welcome everyone from the programming community for an evening of ideas, vibrant discussions and hanging out with your fellow travellers.
The Porto Chapter meets monthly at different locations throughout the city. Keep an eye on our Meetup.com page to find out the latest address.
Please make sure to RSVP before attending to make it easier for us to organize all correctly. You can find our schedule and RSVP here on Meetup.com.
Papers We Love has a Code of Conduct. Please contact one of the Meetup's organizers if anyone is not following it. Be good to each other and to the PWL community!

Upon each day there are more and more services running on the web and we are trying to make to most out of them. These Web Applications (WAs) represent thousands of type of services we can interact with like weather forecast and Application Programming Interface (API) which use by themselves other WAs. API provides at a certain authorization level access to multi-source data using several request endpoints in a multi-tier architecture where performance is critical and it must be ensured the best throughput, …
We are delighted to tell you that we are kicking off the first Papers We Love @ Porto. Our goal is to help bridge the gap between Porto industry and academics: membership of both types are very welcome; and to dive deep into interesting programming topics.
For the first ever Papers We Love in Portugal, we'll be hosting Alvaro Videla (https://twitter.com/old_sound), Co-Author of the book "RabbitMQ in Action" and Former RabbitMQ Core Developer and José Marcelino (https://www.linkedin.com/in/josemarcelino1), Data Scientist at Farfetch.
