About this event

General Monthly Meetup of GDG Cloud London for May 2018.

You must have an RSVP for entry and is first come first served.

-Speakers-
1) Hacking for Fun & Profit: The Kubernetes Way
Demi Ben-Ari, Co-Founder & VP R&D @ Panorays, Google Developers Expert(https://developers.google.com/experts/people/demi-ben-ari).

To defend against attacks, think like a hacker. But does that mean you need to be a DevOps expert? Security researchers today need to discover new attack techniques. However, much of their focus diverges to backend coding. We share how to build an infrastructure for researchers that allows them to concentrate on business logic and writing hacker “tasks”. Using Docker and Kubernetes on Google Cloud, these tasks can then be performed in parallel and without a lot of DevOps hassle. Our technique removes two common barriers: first, long and risky deployment processes and second, low transparency within the production system.

Promise to share the stupid things too.

Software engineer, Entrepreneur and an International Tech Speaker.

Do you know the Crime Abbey?

The abbey is an 8-bit game (for spectrum and CPC) that became the first RPG game in 3D (2.5D) in 1987.
This game is a marvel from a technological point of view: in only less than 120k it is capable of storing the sound, the images, all the logic of the program and the data.

Did you manage to finish the game without help?

I do not know anyone who has passed it without help. It is one of the most complicated games that have been developed, like a 1000x compared to the revenge of Montezuma from Atari. More or less 5 ** 7000 combinations.

In the talk we will tell how we design and build an AI capable of playing alone and learn to complete the game using Reinforcement Learning
