The Harmonious Dance of EF Core and SQL Server

In this talk, we'll explore practical strategies to enhance how EF Core and SQL Server work together.

We will delve into effective logging practices, decoding EF Core generated SQL queries, adding indexing and many more.

From Raw Data to Actionable Data with ChatGPT and plugins simplified

In the new era of ChatGPT, Machine Learning and other AI technologies, many things have changed. Developers can now use AI to generate code, social media can be automated and we summarise an entire book in a matter of minutes.

But can we take some data and get some insights out of them? Do we still need to learn a lot of data science, to clean up data? Can AI do my taxes?

Is ChatGPT going to take away my job? Probably not on the last question, but let's have fun and see how far we can push ChatGPT and plugins without a lot of data science knowledge. :)

🤖 ML.NET in the Post-GPT Era: Importance of Machine Learning 🌐

Image Ever thought about machine learning's place in the post-GPT world? 🤖🌐
Get ready for a fun exploration of traditional machine learning, zooming in on ML.NET, in this amazing ChatGPT era.
We'll uncover the cool perks and real-life uses of ML.NET, with a relatable example of categorizing bank transactions, and even show you how to level up the process with ChatGPT. Whether you're an AI/ML guru or just getting started, this talk is perfect for everyone. Join us for an exciting learning adventure! 🎉💡

Common mistakes in EF Core

When JK worked with many different clients and projects, he frequently heard "EF Core is slow" or "We should do this in raw SQL" only to realize they haven't used EF Core correctly.

JK will show you how to improve your EF Core statements as well as how various configurations impacts the performance and scalability of your application. You'll be blown away at how small changes can significantly impact not only the performance but also stability of the application.

Getting Started with Machine Learning using ML.NET

Want to get started with machine learning but don't know where to start? Have you got an Excel spreadsheet, SQL Database or CSV lying around and wondering if you can use it to experiment with Machine Learning?

In this workshop, we'll start from a CSV exported by a service, and go all the way to an application that uses Machine Learning to make clever decisions.

We will cover:
1. What does a developer need to know about Machine Learning?
2. How does ML.NET help getting started with ML?
3. Quickly prototype a solution with ML.NET Model Builder
4. Improve solution with simple data science rules
5. Integrate a machine learning solution into your application
6. Continuously improving machine learning model and updating applications

Machine Learning simplified for Developers with ML.NET

Do you want to try machine learning, but don't want to invest too much time learning a new programming language or some other complicated API?

Microsoft recently launched ML.NET 1.4 which is a great entry point for .NET developers and to gain experience building something with Machine Learning.

With the recent release of ML.NET Model Builder, we can create machine learning models by attempting to import raw data first and over time curate the data, to get better results.

JK will show you how ML.NET works, how to leverage Model Builder, experiment with training data and what to watch out for when building models.
