Upcoming CDCu Classes & Events

Charleston AR/VR meetup - Augmented Reality at City Scale - In Charleston!

In this presentation we will explore and demo emerging technology platforms and applications that use AR to visualize the future of cities. Using current 2023 smartphone technology developers are devising ways to engage architects, urban planners, city officials, historic preservation advocates and citizens via AR to see buildings and infrastructure on the urban landscape while they are still in the design phases. Designers frequently now use VR to build virtual walkthroughs - AR changes the paradigm - see and comment on future buildings in their natural context - in the real city.

    Through real business examples, you'll gain the knowledge to pilot AI responsibly in your unique context.

  • ChatGPT For Coders

    ChatGPT won't be replacing any software developers any time soon. It's not always correct, and it doesn't do a great job at understanding larger codebases. So should you be using it to help you write code? Absolutely! With the right guidance from a developer, ChatGPT can eliminate large amounts of time in creating boilerplate code, refactoring, adding new functionality and working across different languages. Know how to write some code in Java but not Python? Want to quickly add a unit test to some new functionality? Want to spin up a new API in Go but don't know where to start? All of these are great use cases, and if you can learn to use GPT effectively in your coding process you can move much faster and solve larger and more complex problems every day. Whether you are a seasoned coder or just starting out, this class should leave you with new tricks and faster process to build the things you're excited to build.
