What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in learning about #IBMCloud, the cloud built for business. You can be an existing #IBMCloud user, or someone who has never touched the #IBMCloud before. Meetup topics will vary and could be of interest to developers, administrators, or business leaders.

We are interested in using cool tech to grow business and make the world a better place. Some of the technology topics that we care about are: cloud platforms, artificial intelligence, blockchain, analytics, automation, cloud services / APIs, data science, integration, application development, and governance.

[VIRTUAL] [PRIDE EDITION] IBM Visual Insights: AI Vision at Blazing Speed

Join IBM Developer Austin for a very special event to learn more about Deep Learning and Machine Vision pipelines. IBM Senior Technical Staff Member and Master Inventor Michael Hollinger will demonstrate how IBM Visual Insights make computer vision with deep learning more accessible. You will walk away with an understanding of how to: - Accelerate AI Vision deployments - Increase productivity - Train highly accurate models to classify images, and detect objects in images and videos without deep learning expertise IBM Visual Insights (previously PowerAI Vision) makes computer vision with deep learning more accessible to business users. IBM Visual Insights includes an intuitive toolset that empowers subject matter experts to label, train, and deploy deep learning vision models, without coding or deep learning expertise. It includes the most popular deep learning frameworks and their dependencies, and it is built for easy and rapid deployment and increased team productivity. By combining IBM Visual Insights software with accelerated IBM® Power Systems™, enterprises can rapidly deploy a fully optimized and supported platform with blazing performance. The demonstration will show how you can simply and rapidly deploy models on a fully optimized and supported platform with blazing performance. The demo will include an introduction to the tool set and popular deep learning frameworks that you can use to create Vision models, without coding or deep learning expertise. Mike will then lead a discussion on trade-offs and challenges in AI Vision in an interactive exchange with attendees. AGENDA : 7:00pm Check-In & Introductions 7: 15pm Diversity @ IBM 7:30pm AI Vision Tech Talk 8: 15pm Visual Insights Demo 8:30pm Q&A About the Speaker : Mike Hollinger Chief Architect, Machine Vision @ IBM Cognitive Applications Mike Hollinger is Chief Architect for Machine Vision in IBM Cognitive Applications, and is responsible for creating software that leverages computer vision. Mike previously spent two years in Taipei, Taiwan as Lead Software Architect for Power Systems Firmware Development and is also an IBM Master Inventor and Senior Technical Staff Member, recognizing his contributions to the IBM intellectual property and product portfolios. In past roles, Mike was firmware integration lead for the underlying compute node behind the grand-challenge system that won Jeopardy. When he’s not tinkering, he’s either running on a trail in Austin alongside his husband David, or trying out a new recipe in the kitchen.

[VIRTUAL] [PRIDE EDITION] Red Hat OpenShift World Tour Workshop! (Part One)

4PM CDT / 5PM EDT Since the world loves to put people in boxes, let's create our own and encourage more people with underrepresented and nontraditional backgrounds to get into the Engineering & Containers space! This is a hands-on workshop that will require the use of your computer if you would like to follow along. In order to run these workshops, you need an IBM Cloud account. You can sign up for one here: http://ibm.biz/osworldtouraustinpride_cloud Red Hat® OpenShift® on IBM Cloud is an extension of the IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service, where IBM manages OpenShift Container Platform for you. With Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud, developers have a fast and secure way to containerize and deploy enterprise workloads in Kubernetes clusters. OpenShift clusters build on Kubernetes container orchestration that offers consistency and flexibility for your development lifecycle operations. In this workshop we will show you how to create your own OpenShift cluster on the IBM Cloud, how to use the OC CLI (command line interface) and how to use the OpenShift Web Console to deploy applications. AGENDA : 5:00pm Check-In & Introductions 5: 15pm IBM Cloud & Dev Setup 5:30pm OpenShift Workshop 6:45pm Q&A [VIRTUAL] [PRIDE EDITION] Red Hat OpenShift World Tour Austin Workshop!

[VIRTUAL] Hello, World! Create REST APIs For CRUD Operations Using API Connect

Join IBM Developer Austin for a hands-on workshop where you will create REST APIs for CRUD operations using IBM API Connect. 4PM CDT/5PM EDT LIVE Event on Zoom JavaScript has been a part of the developer landscape since the mid-’90s, but has only begun to be recognized as a server-side platform in the past few years. Netscape may have been the first to experiment with server-side JavaScript, but it wasn’t until Google embedded V8 into a standalone executable (what we now call Node.js) that we saw the potential for running JavaScript code everywhere, not just in a web browser. Recent interest has sparked an explosion of new frameworks for server-side JavaScript; Meteor, Backbone.js, KeystoneJS, and Sails.js come to mind immediately, and more are there for the research-minded. Each builds on top of certain core primitives and targets more or less the same data storage facilities, but each brings its own flavor to the exercise — a particular way of building applications that will seem most obvious, intuitive, and comfortable to developers already familiar with the style that informs the framework. AGENDA : 5:00pm Check-In & Introductions 5:15pm IBM Cloud & Dev Setup 5:30pm API Connect Workshop 6:45pm Q&A
