AWS Builders day 2018

AWS Builders day, December 2018, London

 

I’ve attended few AWS events in the last couple of years in different countries, yet the best experience I had was in the AWS builders day this December 2018 in London.

The difference is this time, is I aimed for the workshops, not the sessions. I went for the AI / ML workshops, and it was a good deviation from the type of technologies I use day to day.

The reason I like this experience is that it was some sort of hands-on training, I guess if I had that much information in a session it wouldn’t stick to my mind the way it did when I applied all the examples by hand.

You can find the materials for these workshops in this GitHub repo, https://github.com/me2resh/AI_ML_Workshops, unlike many tutorials these work as expected if you follow all the steps.

Going through the examples you will cover different aws tools like: aws rekognition, aws lexaws ec2, aws s3, amazon machine learning, aws sagemaker, deep learning AMI, apache MXNet, and Jupyter Notebook.

I hope you will find the material as enjoyable as I did, and if you have any similar resources, please share them in the comments.
