Intro to using Kubernetes with Red Hat Minishift and OpenShift

Red Hat® OpenShift® is supported Kubernetes for cloud-native applications with enterprise security. Although Kubernetes has great scalability, workload portability and intuitive abstractions which allows you to separate business and developer concerns, it is still quite a concern to install, deploy and keep clusters operational. Luckily for us developers, there is Minishift - a tool stack we can use locally on our dev machines and develop and test applications for cloud deployment to test/production Red Hat® OpenShift® environments. In this workshop, we will run through a series of scenarios for creating, deploying and managing micro-services within an OpenShift single-node cluster using Minishift. Pre-requisites: Before engaging in any of the labs, make sure you have correctly installed Minishift - https://docs.okd.io/latest/minishift/getting-started/installing.html Get a head start and join IBM Cloud via https://ibm.biz/BdzAYx **Please bring your Meetup RSVP Confirmation & ID to check-in** Agenda: 630pm - doors open, check-in, and get some food 645pm - round-robin introductions & get to know each other 7-830pm - presentation[masked]pm - Q&A 9pm - venue closes About Grant Grant Steinfeld (@gsteinfeld) is the IBM Developer Advocate for Blockchain, Java, and NodeJS.

Create a real-time object detection app using Watson Machine Learning

Whether you are counting cars on a road or people who are stranded on rooftops in a natural disaster, there are plenty of use cases for object detection. Often times, pre-trained object detection models do not suit your needs and you need to create your own custom models. How can you use machine learning to train your own custom model without substantive computing power and time? Watson Machine Learning. How can you use your custom-trained model to detect objects, in real time, with complete user privacy, all on a device with limited computing power? Apple’s Core ML, TensorFlow.js, and TensorFlow Lite. In this workshop, you will learn how to build an app that lets you use your own custom-trained models to detect objects. You’ll create an IBM Cloud Object Storage instance to store your labeled data, then after your data is ready, you’ll learn how to start a Watson Machine Learning instance to train your own custom model on top-of-the-line GPUs. After your model has completed training, you can plug the model into your application. By the end of this workshop attendees should be able to: - Label data that can be used for object detection - Use your custom data to train a model using Watson Machine Learning - Detect objects with Core ML **Please bring your Meetup RSVP Confirmation & ID to check-in** Agenda: 630pm - doors open, check-in, and get some food 645pm - round-robin introductions & get to know each other 7-830pm - Workshop[masked]pm - additional Q&A & networking 845pm - venue closes Who is this event for? This workshop is for both beginners, experienced developers, makers, tech enthusiasts, entrepreneurs and anyone who is interested in rapid prototyping or is just curious about flow-based programming. Get a head start with IBM Cloud, sign up via: https://ibm.biz/BdzbbQ About the Presenter Pooja Mistry (@poojamakes) is a developer advocate for IBM Cloud. She works on expanding the reach of IBM's technology to New York City's developer community. Her area of interest includes prototyping with NodeRED and working with AI services to build fun and interesting things! Prior to living in NYC, Pooja lived in Boston, MA where she was working as an API automation engineer in the healthcare tech industry. She mainly works in Javascript and Java, however, she tinkers with Python. She is currently passionate about Node-RED and building IoT applications using Node-RED services. She is a strong believer in helping new technologist get up and running with technology and feel confident in their abilities to make!
