- Webinar: Introduction to Quantum Computing
Quantum computers could spur the development of new breakthroughs in science, medications to save lives, machine learning methods to diagnose illnesses sooner, materials to make more efficient devices and structures, financial strategies to live well in retirement, and algorithms to quickly direct resources such as ambulances. But what exactly is quantum computing, and what does it take to achieve these quantum breakthroughs? Join us on our next webinar where we will be hosting the IBM Quantum Computing Ambassador: Mark Mattingley-Scott, who will talk about Quantum Computing history, concepts in Quantum Computing, how Quantum Computing is different than the Classical Computing and will be demonstrating IBM Q Experience.

- AngelHack 2019
Please note: An RSVP to this meetup does not gain participants entry into the hackathon. Use the promo code "callforcode" to reserve a spot for free at https://angelhack.com/angelhack-2019-dubai ! The Angelhack Global Hackathon Series was initially started by a small community of technologists with one goal in mind: to develop opportunity wherever possible. What started as a way for creators to connect and move their ideas forward turned into a global revolution. Soon, innovators from around the world were joining forces to elevate themselves and their platform – all of which was done through Hackathons. And while we’ve seen lots of changes since the early Hackathon days, one thing has remained the same – innovators are continuing to rise. Innovators rise to meet opportunity, they rise from failure, they rise from all corners of the globe, and they lend a hand to help others rise with them. It’s why the Global Hackathon Series is still going strong to this day, because Hackathons and the opportunities they create allow people to rise, together. Your Challenge: Get started for the 2019 Call for Code Global Challenge by building an application using cloud, data, analytics, AI, IoT, blockchain to improve disaster preparedness, response, recovery or building back better focused on the health and well-being of individuals and communities. Join the Call for Code community at ibm.biz/ah-2019 then use this visual recognition drone lab as a starting point to kickstart your solution ibm.biz/ah-2019-dl Prize: One winning submitted project will receive $1k per team and $500/month IBM cloud credits per team member for 6 months

- Webinar: All about Microservices and DevOps
Companies like Netflix, Amazon, and others have adopted the concept of microservices in their products. Microservices are one of the hottest topics in the software industry, and many organizations want to adopt them. Especially helpful is the fact that DevOps can play very well with microservices. But what is a microservice? Why should an organization adopt them? To understand them, join the webinar. You can register for the webinar on https://engage.vevent.com/index.jsp?eid=556&seid=93987
- Blockchain and the Law
For the first time, IBM is collaborating with the Dubai Blockchain Community to tackle to Blockchain industrial aspects and use-cases with the help of leading industrial blockchain experts and hands-on workshops, demos. As the role of technology increases within the legal industry, the question of how and in what ways it can best be used in the practice of law is of top concern among law firms, corporate legal departments, and of course, law schools. From predictive analytics to machine learning, the message is clear: technology will underpin innovation in legal services in increasingly rapid evolution. There is a wide range of practice areas where blockchain technology can become a major player, from supporting the changing nature of legal work to enabling new lines of business and differentiating service offerings. And while many still associate blockchain with its first big application—with cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin—many other organisations are starting to consider how this technology might also help automate day-to-day operations. Agenda: 9:00 AM - 9:30 AM Welcoming & Networking 9:30 AM - 10:00 AM Introduction to Law and Blockchain by Kokila Alagh 10:00 AM - 10:30 AM Demo: Facilitate Collaboration between Non-governmental Organizations using Blockchain by Ayush Maan 10:30 AM - 11 AM Q&A Demo Summary: This code lab demonstrates how to use Hyperledger Fabric network to facilitate collaboration among non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in managing the supply and demand of goods to be distributed to the needy. The disconnect between supply and demand can lead to over- or under-supply of goods and materials. During critical times, there is often no system of trust for getting correct information on supply and demand requirements for goods — a common problem faced by NGOs. This developer code pattern uses the Hyperledger Fabric network to bring about a transparent way for NGOs to collaborate with one another to efficiently distribute goods and materials during normal and critical situations. Target Audience: Anyone with interest in Blockchain (Proficiency level can range from Beginner to Advanced) Prerequisites: To sign up for a free IBM cloud account: http://ibm.biz/dbclegal Recommended Readings prior to the event: - What Happens When Legal Tech Meets Blockchain (https://www.forbes.com/sites/valentinpivovarov/2019/01/24/legalnodes/#2cdce103d2c8) Speakers & Bio: - Kokila Alagh Kokila is the founder of KARM Legal and has 15 years of experience as a Corporate/Commercial and technology lawyer in UAE.
