ChatGPT Webinar: Exploring AI’s Role in Software Development

Smart Data Lunch and Learn “Diving In: ChatGPT for Developers” In the age of artificial intelligence, the revolutionary power of large language models has emerged as a game-changer, empowering people like never before. Everyone is talking about ChatGPT, but what can it actually do to enhance software development? Can we incorporate a similar AI into our own apps? Is ChatGPT the only game in town? We will embark on a journey where AI and human ingenuity unite to reshape the way we communicate and build applications.

Interested in Presenting?

We are always on the look-out for new presenters. Help us out and share the love!


We started our monthly Lunch + Learn events so that our team could have a platform to share their thoughts in a laid-back environment. It was also a good excuse to feed everyone. Since our first few events, our speakers and attendees come from all over. Our events are open to everyone.

We have events at both our Dayton and Cincinnati Offices. Our Speakers come from all over and the presentations cover a wide range of topics.

It is a great opportunity to network with attendees who have a variety of backgrounds and experience. It doesn’t matter if you’re a developer, designer, business analyst, student or someone’s mom, we would love for you to join us.

We don’t have a set monthly date but typically shoot for the last half of the month on a day that works best for the presenter. Worry not, we post the date, time, topic, and location of each event several weeks in advance.

Meet People

Our Lunch & Learn events are not only a great learning opportunity but also a chance to grow your network. We’re friendly people who love to meet and share our knowledge. Come hang out and have some fun.

Learn Stuff

We focus our presentations on trending technologies. If you’re looking to dive deeper into a topic or discover something new, our Lunch & Learn events are a great place to start.

Eat Pizza

Who doesn’t love free food? You listen, we’ll feed you for free.
