What we're about

New Year, New Us!

What is next?

2019 was a great year for our hands-on machine learning events. We hosted over 20 events and helped over 100 members in person and many remotely with their next big decision: where and how to land a job interview in data science, leveraging AWS certifications, resources and community. And as the AWS Data Science community is growing we found ourselves a bigger community of Google Cloud Users and Kagglers! This was a clue for us to realize that we're now growing beyond just Amazon Web Services. We're focusing on Hands-on Machine Learning in the years to come and extending our work to help candidates leveraging not just Amazon Web Services (AWS), but also Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and few other interesting players Microsoft Azure products, GPU computing solutions and much more.

Since we're not just going to focus on one platform (AWS) anymore, what is going to be our focus?

Leveraging.

We'll continue to be Hands-on and leveraging several platforms while keeping our focus and competitive edge on AWS machine learning solutions.

Also, all our events will be sponsored by PhillyTalent. We'll have several new conference rooms and partners and we're so excited to share the news about these in the following weeks!

Welcome to 2020 and here we're glad to have you with us!
