About this event

This is NOT a women exclusive event.
This event is OPEN TO EVERYONE

However, we have a goal to have less than 50% male present, so if you are one, consider bringing one woman (friend/coworker/etc) with you.

8th of March is International Women's day 🎉 this needs proper celebration!

This year, we organize a special Cloud Study Jam event together with Google,focused on Machine Learning.

In this event we will have 2 special guests:
Orestes Carracedo & Abdallah Abdalla (Developer Relations @ Google).

You will get free access to online training, as well as help from Googlers to learn about the cloud. Even more, you will get free access to these online trainings for 30 more days, so that you can complete your trainings at your convenience.

# What is a Study Jam?

** Self paced, self learning study jam, you will pick your topics and we will be there to support you. You can attend simply one of the events and work the rest from home! **

*** Space is limited and we already have a waiting list, please update your RSVP to someone else take your spot. ***

Study Jams are community-run study groups for developers. This is a great opportunity to bring members of your community together to learn something in person.

# How will this work
Every Wednesday in March we will meet and study Cloud together. We will use QWiklabs platform together with the free credits to learn all we want.
However, you are more than welcome to join one of the events and work at home, coming back to our meetup in case you have any question or want to show work done.

At the event we’ll use a tool called Qwiklabs, a Google training product. If you have used Qwiklabs before, great! Make sure you know your password. If you have never used Qwiklabs before, save time by creating an account for yourself prior to the class at:
(creating an account is free).
At the event we will give you a link for free Qwiklabs access. Make sure you check the opt-in box for promos! That makes you eligible for additional free access after you complete the first series of labs.
