First time I went and I found it really interesting to see how others are using machine learning. I find that more and more developers are trying to get into machine learning as their employers start to see the benefits but that also means that they have to learn on the own and on the job (that's my case) so any exchange like that is very welcome indeed. I just wished Alex had delved a bit more into the technical details of his work, and that Thore had been given a bit more time for the whole presentation (he had to rush at the end). Also, it's great to hear about how they got results, but I would have liked them to maybe elaborate a bit more about the challenges that they faced, but I guess I simply should read about the material they posted online. Next time, I'll try to read that before coming to the meet-up so that I can think of interesting questions to ask. Overall, really positive, thanks a lot!
