2) GCP SRE - Watching the Clouds so you don't have to

Abstract: Anton and Florian are going to introduce the fundamentals of Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) at Google, how to architect reliable systems at scale for Google Cloud Platform, discuss how to set meaningful Service Level Objectives (SLOs) and leave plenty of time for Q&A

Speakers: Florian Rathgeber & Anton Tolchanov
Anton's bio: Despite getting a degree in business administration, Anton has been working with software his whole career. He has been a Site Reliability Engineer at Google since 2014. His interests, hobbies and personal traits are not something he'd like to disclose in a public bio, but he'll be happy to tell you his secret to good scrambled eggs.

Florian's bio: Florian defected from academia after a PhD in computational science at Imperial to build data pipelines for meteorological data at the European Centre for Medium-range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) for 3 years before joining Google as a Site Reliability Engineer (SRE) on Google Cloud. At evenings and weekends he cycles to many more meetups than is healthy and works hard to make tech more inclusive for all.

3) Setting up an environment for Machine Learning (Tensorflow) on GCP
Steve started as a developer, and moved into system architecture, business analysis and project management (Microsoft Office 365 stack), but still likes to tinker at home with hardware and all things Google.

Steve is over in the UK, from Australia (he is originally from the UK, and studied in London), and offered to present at the GDG London.

He is switching to another direction in IT, that of Machine Learning, and has just graduated from the Udacity course 'Deep Learning'.

He has grappled with various methods to deliver the practical coursework, and will present a quick way to set up a machine learning environment with most of the required tools (such as Tensorflow) on GCP using GCP Marketplace, and how to modify the server to use the latest GPU to accelerate model training.
