About this event

We’re sure most of you are interested in learning new technologies and tools. That’s why we’re excited to participate in the Community Speedrun Challenge that Google is organizing for developer communities in Europe. And as part of GDG Edinburgh, you’re among the first to know about this!!

The Community Speedrun Challenge is a training program that will run in May where you’ll have the opportunity to join four Speedruns and get hands-on experience with Machine Learning on Google Cloud, and take your first steps with tools like BigQuery, Cloud Speech API, and Cloud ML Engine. Every Speedrun is open for a week to give you the ability to finish all labs in your best time, scoring more points and winning prizes.
