As Christmas, the season of giving, dawns upon us, we at Lamba Labs wish you happy holidays. We would like to thank everyone who has supported us so far. Without your support, our space could not have carried on. We aim to give you Lambas the best experience and to deliver workshops and talks of the highest standards.
In order for us to continue with our activities, we have to ask you again for your support. We have started a GivingLoop page which will allow you to donate a m...onthly sum to Lamba Labs. This way, you can track your donations and ensure that we keep on with our good work:
Finally, we kindly ask you to spread the word. Share the link on your Facebook pages, and tell your friends about us.
Looking forward to another great year!!
It's March so it must be International Women's Month!!
As such, Lamba Labs is co-hosting a celebratory day with GDG Coast Lebanon and Women Techmakers Lebanon. The event is also in partnership with WOMENA. Join us for a chance to win 2 tickets to Step conference* Dubai!
This year saw a lot of efforts for women empowerment and changing the norms, with 2018 being "at the heels of unprecedented global movement for women's rights, equality and justice". Hence, IWD only saw it f...it to tag this year's theme as #PressforProgress
Working under this theme, Lamba Labs, GDG Coast Lebanon, and Google Women Techmakers Lebanon Branch is inviting women speakers who have done so much to help build a new Lebanon.
Agenda for the day:
9:00 - 9:30 Registration + Check In
9:30 - 9:45 GDG Introduction + Women Techmakers, Ahmad Zein: GDG Coast Lebanon

Today we mourn the passing of the great mathematician and theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking. At first it sounded IRRATIONAL, but then we realized that this is the CIRCLE of life.
In addition to being a Lucasian Professor of Mathematics and a theoretical physicist, he was a cosmologist, an author of great books like "A Brief History of Time" and "God Created the Integers", and the Director of Research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology within the University of Cambri...dge.
His scientific works include a collaboration with Roger Penrose on gravitational singularity theorems in the framework of general relativity and the theoretical prediction that black holes emit radiation, often called Hawking radiation. Hawking was also the first to set out a theory of cosmology explained by a union of the general theory of relativity and quantum mechanics.
In his honor, the Perimeter Institute (PI) for Theoretical Physics named their expanded center for theoretical cosmology "The Stephen Hawking Centre".
Sir Stephen Hawking, you will always be in our hearts and minds. Your memory will go on, like the decimal digits of π. We cannot see a more fitting day than Pi Day to pay tribute to all your great accomplishments. As such, we dedicate tonight's Pi Party to you.
R.I.P Sir Hawking 😥
Album for pictures of the "Women in Data Science AUB-Stanford Conference 2018" are here! Make sure to check them out!
It's March 14th so it's time to celebrate all that is Pi related!!
We've come to know Pi all so well, from the symbol π that holds a special place in every math enthusiast's heart, to Raspberry Pi, the small computer that caught the makers' world by storm (especially in the field of IoT), to, of course, your traditional pies that no one minds exploring once in a while
As such, Lamba Labs is co-hosting a #PiParty this Wednesday at 6pm, in collaboration with GDG Coast Leba...non and Google Women Techmakers at their HQ. We will be doing a small tribute to the Pi. Then we will be running parallel workshops to explore the Raspberry Pi (there will be levels: beginner and intermediate).
Hardware will be supplied by us, but please bring your laptops with NOOBS (for beginner workshops), Raspbian (for more advanced workshops), and IDLE Python programming terminal downloaded. We will be uploading a shared URL soon to retract all required material for the workshops.
Places are limited (20 seats), and will be on basis of registration (or first come first serve if registered people did not show up). Priority will be given for Lamba Labs Members (extra 10 seats reserved for them). Registration link will be provided shortly.
Complete hardware and programming beginners are welcomed, but basic knowledge in networks and concepts of programming are preferred.
