As the saying goes, “idle hands are the devil’s workshop”, and although workshops are by no means mandatory to attend at DEVOPS 2018, for engineers, technical workshops are an added bonus that would be a shame to miss. Technical workshops allow you to roll up your sleeves under the watchful eyes of an industry leader, together with technical specialists from around the world.
SingularityNET does not operate in Europe, and their workshop is a rare treat for European DEVOPS 2018 participants. They’re running a workshop on day 1 (13 December 2018) of DEVOPS 2018 on “Decentralized AI for developers”.
Other industry-leaders running workshops include Alibaba Cloud, Microsoft, XebiaLabs, Puppet, Redis Labs, Sonatype & SUSE.
Below you can find the full list of DEVOPS 2018 workshops (almost a dozen in total), available exclusively to conference attendees seeking to sharpen their DevOps and AI saws. See you there!
