About this event

Get training from an official chapter of Google Developer Groups, a $55+ value, free of charge. Together we'll work through several Google Cloud Machine Learning labs, and you'll get access to the Qwiklabs platform. You will get hands-on experience with Cloud ML Engine, Cloud Speech API, and the Cloud Natural Language API all in Google Cloud.

After our live (virtual) session, you will have free access to more labs you can finish at home. Complete all the labs in the quest and earn a Google-hosted badge for your online profile, and additional 30 days access to the training platform to complete any other labs or quests you want.  How cool is that?
