Is Machine Learning the right tool?

To many people, machine learning is a black box of awesomeness that magically solves all of your problems. When you combine this with how much it is talked about in the news it can be very hard to understand what it truly is, what kind of problems it can solve, and where it fits in your developer tool belt. Starting with the basics and debunking the misconceptions we will more objectively be able analyze when and where using machine learning will fit within our projects.


What does it mean to be a Data Scientist? Definitions and lessons learned from the trenches

Data science seems to be all the rage these days, but there are a lot of misconceptions around what this means, since everyone seems to have their own definition and there is no text book definition per say. We will touch briefly on the techniques and tools (including machine learning and big data), but focus more on the process itself and define what all is composed within data science and its related projects. Examples of these are preparing data, separating machine learning problems from programming problems, defining the process to follow, and dealing with a massive amount of variance in your data.


What is a Command Bus?

There has been a lot of buzz in recent years around the concept of a command bus, but if you've never used it before it can be intimidating. During this talk we will break down the basic concepts, build our own command bus, discuss pros and cons, and review different frameworks that make this work easy. By creating our own command bus we can see exactly what it does and how it works so that it will no longer be a black box. This will give you a practical introduction so that you can get started implementing this in your apps today.


Introduction to Amazon AWS

Amazon AWS is the other main player in cloud computing. They have many of the same offerings as Azure, but also some that are different. We’ll take a look at the basics such as SQS, S3, EC2, SNS, and SES, to see how you can quickly and easily incorporate the cloud into your existing applications.


Serilog: Logging all Grown Up

Thanks to Serilog, logging has never been more easy than now. We will start with the basics to get you up and running quick, then we will move to more useful things such as enrichers (custom attributes) and sinks (custom write locations). With many different sinks available you can very easy log to several different sources at one.
