Happy New Year everyone!
I'm happy to announce that Zendesk has committed to host us bi-monthly in 2019 as well, so it looks like we can look forward to another year of great talks, food and networking.
We have two great speakers lined up this month. If you would like to give a talk at a future meetup later this year, please reach out to Martin Brochhaus here on Meetup or via Facebook.
7pm: Meet & Greet
7:30pm: Using Docker and Kubernetes to Simplify Machine Learning by Timothy Liu
Managing the hardware, drivers, libraries and packages that make up a ML development environment can be hard. In this talk, I will introduce how Docker can be used to simplify the process of setting up a local ML development environment, and how we can use Kubernetes and Kubeflow to scale that standardised environment to provide scalable, web-based Jupyter environments for a large number of users, that can be served from both public cloud providers and from on-premise clusters.
Timothy is an undergraduate student at the Singapore University of Technology and Design and an intern at NVIDIA. He is passionate about making ML development more accessible and easier to manage.
8:00pm: Python and Power BI: Enhance the Way Users Interact with Your Data Science Work! by Jeff Zi Wang Lim
Power BI, a business analytics tool by Microsoft announced support for Python in August 2018. This talk will demonstrate how Python users can leverage this opportunity to bring together their data science visualizations into business dashboards, allowing for even better business decisions. (Note: Jeff is not sponsored by nor work for Microsoft in any capacity)
