  • Machine Learning: Creating your first image classification model from scratch!

    We will be creating a bear identifying model that can classify whether an image is of a black bear, grizzly bear or teddy bear! We will start from scratch by creating a dataset, cleaning it and then training a neural network from that data. We will be training and running this all on an Azure Virtual Machine (credits will be provided thanks to Microsoft!). The library we will use to train this on is fast.ai (feel free to check it out before hand!) and using Jupyter notebooks. Past python experience might be helpful but not necessary at all. Open to anyone interested in seeing how to create a machine learning model - at any skill level! We will be deploying the model at the end, it will look something like this - https://whatbearisit.onrender.com/ All you need with you is your laptop and charger.

  • AWS Workshop - Build a Multi-Tenant Serverless application

    Women Who Code Melbourne in collaboration with the AWS Programming and Tools Meetup will be presenting a workshop on building a Multi-Tenant Serverless application using AWS Amplify, with Matthew Merriel from Kloud Solutions Melbourne. Amazon Web Services is one of the three major providers of cloud-based platforms and services. This workshop will cover the basics of building applications using AWS Amplify, an opinionated, category-based client framework for building scalable mobile and web apps. This framework helps teams construct the core infrastructure needed to build, deploy and manage large scale applications. In this workshop, you will learn how to set up an Amplify project, and configure hosting for development and production instances. We'll add authentication through the use of AWS Cognito, and use it to secure an AWS Appsync endpoint using GraphQL and DynamoDB. Finally, we'll take a look at how to setup a Deployment pipeline and implement a CloudFront endpoint. By the end of the session, you will have a fully functional multi-tenanted note taking application. Prerequisites and Requirements: * AWS Account https://aws.amazon.com/account/ * Laptop (fully charged, as we can't guarantee outlets will be available) You'll need a valid credit card to create an AWS account. Sometimes account creation can take up to 24 hours, so please make sure you are prepared prior to the event. There's a lot to do on the day, so preparation will help you get the most out of the workshop!
