Intro to Julia lang (designed for AI & ML) + Hands on coding!

To start the new year, we'll check out Julia, a new and upcoming language, especially built for AI and ML. If you have a laptop, please bring it along for the hands on session after the talk. *** Introduction to Julia - the language of the future for AI and ML *** Zhuo Jia Dai (@dzj_evalparse) The Julia programming language (#julialang) has garnered some well-deserved attention for its ease of use and powerful performance (https://juliacomputing.com/press/2017/09/12/julia-joins-petaflop-club.html). In this talk, we will give an intro to Julia, and demonstrate its unique properties via a study of the canonical NMIST handwritten digit classification problem. You will see why the creators of Julia claims that Julia has the 'speed of C' and 'ease-of-use of Python. Finally, we will present a couple of interesting programming problems for you to work through on juliabox.com to help you get a feel for Julia. Bio: ZJ has 10+ years of experience in banking modelling/analytics/data science and has recently become an independent consultant. He has a maths background and runs the Sydney Competitive programming meetup and Julia (Julialang) meetup. NOTE: The group meets in the Sydney CBD, near Wynyard station, not in Revesby (there's been some map bugs around this)!

Microservices with Istio Service Mesh

Needs a location

*** Empower Your Microservices with Istio Service Mesh *** Hossam Barakat (@hossambarakat_) Microservices popularity has grown as a lot of organizations are moving their applications to microservices which enables their teams to autonomously own and operate their own microservices. The microservices have to communicate with each other so how do you efficiently connect, secure, and monitor those services? Istio is an open platform for providing a uniform way to integrate microservices, manage traffic flow across microservices, enforce policies and aggregate telemetry data. In this session, we will cover what is service mesh and why it is important for you, what are the core components of Istio, how to empower your microservices to leverage the features that Istio provides on top of Kubernetes such as service discovery, load balancing, resiliency, observability, and security.
