Pre-conference Training Workshops
Get up to speed with some of the main topics of the conference with our 1-day training workshops taking place on October 23. Our experienced instructors will be teaching in classrooms of only up to 20 persons, to maximize interaction and so you can ask more questions than in a conference setting:
- Machine Learning Kickstart with Open Source & Cloud Platforms. Learn about the possibilities of ML, how to create predictive models from data, operationalize and evaluate them.
- Introduction to Deep Learning with Keras & TensorFlow. Learn the basics of DL, how to experiment and deploy solutions, and the most useful tools in the TensorFlow ecosystem.
Attendees should bring their laptops for hands-on practical work. Some experience with the command line and in Python programming is required.
The main conference will take place on October 24 & 25, 2017 at the Microsoft N.E.R.D Center, and pre-conference training workshops will take place on October 23, 2017 (venue TBC soon).

Join us at Microsoft N.E.R.D!
PAPIs is a vendor-neutral and independent community conference. It wouldn’t be able to exist without the support of its partners. This year, we're grateful to have Microsoft sponsor the venue at their New England Research & Development Center — which allows us to keep registration prices low!
