• Launching your career in Cloud Computing

    Intellectual Point

    Cloud computing is one of the hottest technologies with a high demand for qualified professionals. The median salary for IT pros currently in a cloud computing career in the U.S. is $124,300. However, it is not the easiest of jobs to acquire because it is a specialty area. To secure a job in this field, a candidate must have several specific skills. Let’s see what they are so you can get your cloud computing career started! Amazon's (AWS) selection of Crystal City (Arlington VA) for its new headquarters will bring $15 billion and 62,000 jobs by 2025. Are you ready for being part of this lucrative career? There is a great deal of interest from those with traditional IT skills—such as help desk technicians, data center admins, enterprise architects, developers, and networking engineers—to steer themselves into a cloud computing career that will not only provide job protection but pay better as well. However, the path to cloud computing riches is not that clear for most. The good news: There is a path for many IT pros into the cloud. In this meetup, we will show you how to map a path to those cloud computing jobs from your current state if you are a Helpdesk or datacenter admin, enterprise architect, database admin, application developer, system admin, test/QA engineer, or networking engineer. The patterns for getting from traditional IT to cloud It are basically the same for most IT roles: Get smart on specific cloud technology and do it fast. Take advantage of the AWS and Azure training, boot camps and exam readiness workshops. If you are a job seeker bring along some copies of your resume and business cards. Bring along your co-workers, family, and friends!

  • Hands-on Automation Demo - Build a BOT with UIPath

    Intellectual Point

    Robotic process automation (RPA) is the current big technology trend in many major industries. With RPA, a business uses programmed software to automate everyday tasks, freeing up employees to focus their efforts on higher-level duties. According to KeyBanc Capital Markets, the global RPA market is emerging as a $100 billion opportunity in 10 years while McKinsey expects that the automation of knowledge work could have a potential economic impact between $5.2 and $6.7 trillion dollars by 2025. RPA is the future of enterprise automation and a key pillar of a digital transformation strategy. The art of managing robots is as intricate and challenging as managing people. Please join us at this event where you will be learning some fundamentals of UIPath such as​ RPA Use Cases, RPA Benefits, hands-on demo on how to build attended bots, best practices, and more. This meetup is a hands-on presentation of how to use three main products within the UIPath portfolio to build a bot to automate the manual process such as filling out expense reports, screen scraping and doing reconciliations on a financial statement. UiPath Studio - an advanced tool that enables you to design automation processes in a visual manner, through diagrams. UiPath Robot - executes the processes built in Studio, as a human would. Robots can work unattended (run without human supervision in any environment, be it virtual or not) or as assistants (a human triggers the process). UiPath Orchestrator - a web application that enables you to deploy, schedule, monitor and manage Robots and processes, while business exception handling is available through centralized work queues.

  • Web App Penetration Testing with Burp Suite

    Intellectual Point

    What is Burp Suite you ask? Burp Suite is a Java-based Web Penetration Testing framework. It has become an industry-standard suite of tools used by information security professionals. Burp Suite helps you identify vulnerabilities and verify attack vectors that are affecting web applications. This overview will utilize hands-on training with Burp Suite and OWASP Juice Shop to teach web application penetration testing (WAPT) fundamentals. We will demonstrate how to use Burp Suite to manually and automatically identify and validate common web app security issues, with a focus on covering the OWASP Top 10 application security risks (2017 list). By the end of the meetup, attendees will have a better idea of how to use Burp Suite and the importance of secure coding for web applications. BE SURE TO BRING YOUR OWN COMPUTER!!!

  • HANDS-ON THREAT HUNTING UTILIZING THE ELASTIC ELK STACK

    Intellectual Point

    This hands-on meetup will walk attendees through leveraging the open-source ELK (Elastic Stack) to analyze logs to proactively identify malicious activity. The basic tools and techniques taught during this meetup will lay a foundation that can be used to investigate isolated security incidents or implemented at scale for continuous monitoring and hunting. Attendees will be provided with access to a preconfigured ELK (Elastic Stack) cluster and extensive sample logs containing diverse malicious events waiting to be discovered on a simulated enterprise network. Attacker artifacts will be mapped to the MITRE ATT&CK Framework and tagged accordingly in the provided logs to help demonstrate the value of log enrichment and a methodological approach to adversary and anomaly detection.

  • NVIDIA presents a demo exploring the RF Spectrum with Deep Learning

    University of North America

    “Exploring the RF Spectrum with Deep Learning” -- Adam Thompson Deep Learning has revolutionized the computer vision domain with many networks now outperforming traditional machine learning and image processing techniques for scene classification and understanding. Can these same ideas, however, be applied to non-imagery data? In this talk, we will highlight the developments and implications of deep learning on RF data – speaking specifically about signal classification, identification, anomaly detection, and scheduling. Adam Thompson is a Senior Solutions Architect at NVIDIA. With a background in signal processing, he has spent his career participating in and leading programs focused on deep learning for RF classification, data compression, high-performance computing, and managing and designing applications targeting large collection frameworks. His research interests include deep learning, high-performance computing, systems engineering, cloud architecture/integration, and statistical signal processing. He holds a Masters degree in Electrical & Computer Engineering from Georgia Tech and a Bachelors from Clemson University.
