About this event

Dear all,

we would like to kick off 2020 with a Meetup that focuses on ML as well as infrastructure.
Details for talks, speakers and a detailed agenda are updated and we hope to see you all on Thursday.

Here is our agenda so far:

18:30 - 19:00 Welcome, Grab some food and drink
19:00 - 19:30 Istio: Failing or Sailing - Jorge Gonzalez
19:30 - 20:00 Trends in ML - Brecht Coghe
20:00 - 21:00 Q&A, Socialising

Talk Details

"Istio: Failing or Sailing"
For half a year now, Jorge has been exploring the up and downsides of Istio, a service mesh that is supposed to connect, secure, control, and observe services. In this talk he will share his use case, his learnings and probably not answer the question if Istio is production ready or not.

"Trends in ML"
Machine Learning is the next big thing, but it has been around for a long while. In our "Trends in ML" talk, we will discuss the state-of-the-art at this moment and we'll give a breakdown from a practical perspective of what we see changing within the field.

Speakers Bios

Jorge Gonzalez (Endocode)
Jorge is a Senior DevOps Engineer at Endocode. He has been working at Endocode for almost 3 years, he is experienced in working with Kubernetes in the Cloud and in-house. He always keeps a cool head, a good overview while trying to see how to improve a product.

Brecht Coghe (ML6)
Brecht is a Senior Machine Learning Engineer at ML6. He has been working at ML6 for 3 years now and has been involved in multiple big-scale machine learning projects. Prior to ML6, Brecht was a PhD candidate in the field of bioinformatics.

We're looking forward to a new year of talks, discussions, pizza and maybe a beer or two.

See you soon!
