I’m super excited to be out an about next week. I would love to meet with any customers who have any concerns, issues, or just want to say hi.

ThatConference

This (that?) conference is at one of my favorite hotels: the Kalahari. It comes complete with an indoor water park. We are proud to be a Gold sponsor at the event. We also are sponsoring game night so look for us there. Since this is a family friendly conference we also decided to make real kid shirts! Mark, Areg, and myself will be coming down. Please stop by to ask any questions. I am even known for breaking out and coding with you if the need arises.

Additionally, Mark and I both have speaking slots:

  • Tuesday, August 12 @ 10:30a (Room C) I will be talking about Machine Learning
    ”Machine learning is often perceived to be a daunting topic, when in fact its concepts are fairly intuitive and easy to use. This session will introduce nuML machine learning library basics, and will thus address the clustering issue in .NET applications by focusing on the practical real-world applications of recommendation engines and anomaly detection. At the conclusion of this session, attendees will be able to immediately use their unlabeled data to create powerful models for predicting the future based on the past.”
  • Tuesday, August 12 @ 4:00p (Marula) Mark will knock your socks off by showing you how to code super fast:
    ”Learn how to write C# and VB code efficiently using the Visual Studio add-in, CodeRush. See powerful code building features like code templates, consume-first deep declaration, and automatic test case generation; refactorings for improving code quality & performance; advanced navigation, selection, and clipboard tools; background code issue analysis, a full-featured test runner and so much more. If you’re interested in seeing what CodeRush can do for your productivity and for your team, be sure to see this session."

Tulsa TechFest

After spending a few days in Wisconsin I will be off to Tulsa to take part in the 8th annual edition of Tulsa TechFest. When I joined DevExpress this was one of the first events I had the privilege of attending! We are happy to be a Premier/Coffee/Prize sponsor. I have a couple of talks there as well:

  • Friday, August 15 @ 10:30a - Practical Machine Learning - Recommender Engine and Anomaly Detection
    “Machine learning is often perceived to be a daunting topic, when in fact its concepts are fairly intuitive and easy to use. This session will introduce nuML machine learning library basics, and will thus address the clustering issue in .NET applications by focusing on the practical real-world applications of recommendation engines and anomaly detection. At the conclusion of this session, attendees will be able to immediately use their unlabeled data to create powerful models for predicting the future based on the past. “
  • Friday, August 15 @ 1:30p - Principles of Modern Data Visualization
    “Data visualizations are intended for summarizing complex information into visually digestible bites in an aesthetically pleasing way; getting them right is difficult work. This session will introduce developers to certain important principles that govern great data visualizations through an example-based collaborative discussion.“
  • Friday, August 15 @ 3:00p - Practical Machine Learning - Predicting Things
    “Machine learning is one of the newest tools in a Data Scientist's arsenal. In this session attendees will learn practical approaches to solving the prediction problem through an interactive demonstration of various popular machine learning algorithms.”

In all, next week should be seriously awesome.

As always, if there are any comments and/or questions, feel free to get a hold of me!
