Enterprise messaging on the Raspberry Pi with IBM MQ

Online event

💙 Messaging is part of everyday life and is critical to how stuff gets done. As human beings, we are constantly sending, receiving and processing information, without even thinking about it! In the same way, we need our software to be able to communicate with us and with other parts of our infrastructure - whether that software powers a home IoT project, or the biggest enterprises in the world. Earlier this year, the IBM MQ team released an (entirely free!) developer edition of IBM MQ, an enterprise messaging solution, for Raspberry Pi OS. In this interactive session, we’d love to show you how it works! 🍰 Register on Crowdcast https://www.crowdcast.io/e/learn-about-ibm-mq-an 🚀 What will you learn In this workshop developers will learn: * The basics of enterprise messaging * A little about IoT * How to install and use IBM MQ on the Raspberry Pi We’ll also get hands-on with Raspberry Pi and IBM MQ, show some live demos and conclude by inviting you to earn a badge to display on your LinkedIn profile. 💙 Who should attend? * Developers! * Those interested in messaging, IoT and Raspberry Pi * Anyone who wants to learn something new! Don’t worry if you don’t have a Raspberry Pi, there’s a lot we think you’ll find interesting and perhaps it will inspire you to get a Pi in the future! 🎙 Speakers * Richard Coppen, IBM MQ Developer Experience Lead in Hursley, UK, https://www.linkedin.com/in/richard-coppen-163800116/ * Max Kahan, IBM MQ Developer Experience Software Engineer in Hursley, UK, https://www.linkedin.com/in/maxkahan/ 🍰 Register on Crowdcast https://www.crowdcast.io/e/learn-about-ibm-mq-an

Geospatial Analysis with Pandas - Explore UK Crime Data

🎓 Part 3 : Explore UK Crime Data with Pandas and Geopandas In this workshop you will learn how to explore geospatial data with what you have learned in the previous two sessions of this series. We will explore an additional dataset to analyze the crime rates in London with both Pandas and GeoPandas in a Jupyter notebook. We will go through exercises analyzing UK Crime Data to explore patterns and trends and create crime rates maps. 🎈Register on Crowdcast → https://www.crowdcast.io/e/geospatial-analysis-with-3 💡This is a good series for you if you are: * an aspiring data scientist * frequently working with excel files and want another approach to dissect data * a SQL developer looking to get into programming * curious about data in general! You will learn about: * build on what you learned in part 1 and part 2 * joining datasets to aggregate geospatial data 🎓 Prerequisites * Sign up for IBM Cloud - https://ibm.biz/BdqCup 🎙 Speakers: * Margriet Groenendijk, Developer Advocate, IBM * Upkar Lidder, Developer Advocate, IBM 📅 Upcoming & Recorded Sessions: * 10/14/2020 - Part 1 : Introduction to Pandas * 10/21/2020 - Part 2 : Geospatial Analysis with Pandas 🎈Register on Crowdcast → https://www.crowdcast.io/e/geospatial-analysis-with-3

Tech Talks with Bee Travels - Part 3 : Debugging Mircoservices

💥 Microservices is a software architecture paradigm that is not new. About a decade after their inception in the industry, they are still a cause of many debates. We are moving away from our monolithic architecture for speed of development and deployment. But microservices are not without its challenges. 🎡Register on Crowdcast: https://www.crowdcast.io/e/beetravels_part3 How do we properly create service boundaries in our application? How do we handle distributed logging, monitoring, and communication? How do we secure our application? What is our deployment strategy? How do we make sure our services do not regress? What do we do for scaling our services based on load? 🍭In this tech series, we will be using an example travel application called Bee Travels to dive deep into designing fully scaled cloud-native microservice applications. Bee Travels is a polyglot demo microservice application to demonstrate key capabilities of Kubernetes, OpenShift, Istio, Knative, and many other cloud-native technologies. Bee Travels uses best in practice standards for cloud-native development, recommended coding styles in Node, Python, Rust, Go, and Java, and encompasses the full developer life cycle experience. Throughout this series we will use Bee Travels to dive into the following topics: Microservice design Deploying microservices Testing and debugging microservices Data Handling within microservices Connecting microservices to different services on IBM Cloud Monitoring and logging microservices Communication between microservice CI/CD Security 👋🏻Come join us each week to hear what the buzz is about Bee Travels and learn more about the ins and outs of building cloud-native microservices. 🎡Register on Crowdcast: https://www.crowdcast.io/e/beetravels_part3

Discord chatbot with IBM Watson on IBM Cloud Part 1

Online event

🚀 During this webinar you will learn how to create a Discord chatbot with IBM Watson in this 3 part series. The new seasons of Fortnite and Apex Legends land in November, and you might want to create a custom chatbot for your Discord friends. With help of this webinar you will be able to do it quickly, work with the Container based bot in Docker, enhance it with AI services based on IBM Watson, install it in the Cloud or on your Raspberry Pi. Sign up now and use the open sourced project to boost your bot right away! If you are new or advanced coder this will give you head start with your chatbot for the coming events in coming weeks. 🍰 Register on Crowdcast: https://www.crowdcast.io/e/discord-chatbot-with-ibm-2 🎓 What you will learn In this online workshop developers will learn: * Where to look for an API key in Discord * How to add a chatbot to Discord using IBM Watson * Intro to IBM Watson Assistant * Using Docker to containerize the Discord Bot * Deploying the chatbot in IBM Cloud for free using Serverless Cloud Native Programing 👩‍💻 Who should attend * Developers, cloud developers, AI developers, full stack developers 🎙 Speaker Marek Sadowski, IBM Developer Advocate, https://twitter.com/blumareks 🍰 Register on Crowdcast: https://www.crowdcast.io/e/discord-chatbot-with-ibm-2
