Workshop Delta Lake Sharing – Databricks – Nov 4

In May of this year, Databricks released Delta Sharing, an open protocol for the secure exchange of massive datasets. Through the generation of pre-signed, short-lived URLs pointing directly at requested data, and their distribution to authenticated data consumers, Delta Sharing facilitates real-time, platform-agnostic access to an organization’s information. This makes Delta Sharing well-suited as a means to inter-domain dataset distribution in the Data Mesh. Data Mesh is an architectural paradigm that erupted into the public consciousness at around the same time. This code breakfast consists of two parts.
8:15 am

Introduction to Data Mesh

In part one, Robert Rodger will give a brief introduction to the Data Mesh concept and describe the role Delta Sharing can play in it.

Stop procrastinating failure!

For a long time the quality community has been shouting that early testing is necessary as incidents are really expensive to fix. With the rise of DevOps, build pipelines, and cloud technology the world has dramatically changed.

Data Science in Production – 4 nov

Let’s take data science in production! In this stream, you’ll have the opportunity to learn from leading enterprises that leverage data applications to improve their operation. Guidion and Heineken are in totally different lines of business, but share the ambition to become AI-driven organizations. Besides technology, a strong culture built around skill and diversity allows teams to excel. Experienced consultant Serge Beaumont joins EV Box CIO Madeleine Smit and Elaine Versloot (Binx) to share their learnings regarding establishing diversity in tech teams.
12:30 pm

Guidion Customer Story

Guidion is a scale-up in the technical services industry. Their large network of self-employed mechanics install services and fix technical problems for the customers of Guidion’s partners in the energy and telecom sectors. This chain of events - from the moment that a customer makes an appointment to when it is completed by Guidion - generates a wealth of data. Over the course of 2021, GoDataDriven has helped Guidion to build a centralized data team of engineers and analysts that fits Guidion’s T-shaped culture. Through knowledge-sharing sessions and joint projects in machine learning, data dashboards and engineering, we created a team in which the analysts think like engineers and the engineers think like analysts. In this session, we’ll discuss the challenges of building such a versatile team in a scale-up, how Guidion plans on continuing their data-driven journey how data plays a central role in their business processes.

Vertex AI brings together the Google Cloud services for building ML under one, unified UI and API. In Vertex AI, you can now easily train and compare models using AutoML or custom code training and all your models are stored in one central model repository. One AI platform, every ML tool you need A unified UI for the entire ML workflow Vertex AI brings together the Google Cloud services for building ML under one, unified UI and API. In Vertex AI, you can now easily train and compare models using AutoML or custom code training and all your models are stored in one central model repository. These models can now be deployed to the same endpoints on Vertex AI. Pre-trained APIs for vision, video, natural language, and more Easily infuse vision, video, translation, and natural language ML into existing applications or build entirely new intelligent applications across a broad range of use cases (including Translation and Speech to Text). AutoML enables developers to train high-quality models specific to their business needs with minimal ML expertise or effort. With central managed registry for all datasets across data types (vision, natural language, and tabular). End-to-end integration for data and AI You can use BigQuery ML to create and execute machine learning models in BigQuery using standard SQL queries on existing business intelligence tools and spreadsheets, or you can export datasets from BigQuery directly into Vertex AI for seamless integration across the data-to-AI life cycle. Use Vertex Data Labeling to generate highly accurate labels for your data collection. Support for all open source frameworks Vertex AI integrates with widely used open source frameworks such as TensorFlow, PyTorch, and scikit-learn, along with supporting all ML frameworks via custom containers for training and prediction.
