Snacks & Hacks Amsterdam are coding-oriented meetups, brought to you by the data experts at Anchormen. During these Meetups we explore the newest data engineering tools, languages, models and frameworks in an open environment with like-minded people. We do nothing more, and nothing less, than introducing you to the newest technology, providing a playground with assignments, and the opportunity for you to play around while enjoying pizza and drinks.
Everyone with a knack for data (engineering, science, ML) is welcome to come and try new things, learn, and share knowledge - join the Snacks & Hacks Amsterdam Meetup Community!
(!) Be Warned - No presenters, or hour long presentation - just you and fellow Data, ML and AI enthusiasts trying out new tooling and packages in a more dev' atmosphere. (!)
In this Snacks&Hacks edition, we will dive into Jax & Flax.
Jax is a nifty library that puts Numpy on steroids by combining it with autograd (for automatically computing derivatives) and XLA (for running it on CPU, GPU or TPU). Flax is an Artificial Neural Network library that is built on top of JAX.
As usual, we will briefly introduce the topic and then try it out with some exercises while enjoying drinks and pizza!
18:00 - 18:30 Walk-in (food and drinks).
18:30 - 19:00 Introduction to Jax & Flax, as well as the exercises
by Anchormen's CTO, Jeroen Vlek.
19:00 - 21:00 Hacking!
21:00 - 21:15 Wrap up.
Bring your own device, we will arrange the rest! GPU laptops preferred.
If you have any questions, please call us on this number:
