Dec 16 @ 10:00 am – 10:00 am

Get Your Ticket Now You must know DevOps, the merge of Software Developer and System Administrators in Cloud Era, but do you know the further merge of Data Scientist and Devops in AI Big Data Cloud Era – we call it DataDevOps? It does not matter whether you are at senior-level or entry-level in Software Development/System Administration/Data Science/AI, as our advanced boot camps are brand new, with so called leap-frog effect, you are lucky to leap forward bypassing legacy technologies. The goal of the boot camp is to build & operate data pipeline and/or data lake for big data-enabled AI in cloud, and we will provide sample code in Python for Hadoop & TensorFlow and/or Scala for Spark (if you are new to them) for you to proceed and enhance and expand, your mileage may vary depending on your background and experience, every attendee will benefit significantly You must purchase your ticket here or  at https://www.hwswworld.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=139 through PayPal without a cover charge  or here at meetup.com a in order to secure a seat.
