Bio
Jamie is a web developer and runs a small agency in Middlesbrough called Endeavour Digital. He enjoys building Front End Applications with React and is an advocate of JAMstack.

Session summary
This talk will covers the basics of JAMstack i.e. what it is, why it’s becoming so popular and also some of the potential drawbacks with using JAMstack. It will then follow up with a short demonstration of a project using Gatsby and showcase how this fits into the JAMstack and why it is proving to be a success.

7:00-7:30pm - Machine learning and AI by John McKechnie.

 

Bio

John is a project manager with a background in software development in the areas information retrieval and machine learning. He remembers the days when a computer world chess champion was science fiction and enjoys seeing some of the enormous potential of AI now being fulfilled.

 

Session summary

This talk will cover some of the recent advances in AI, explaining what’s behind some of the terminology we hear and giving an indication of what approaches are good for what problems. I will highlight some technical resources for developers who aren’t necessarily working in AI yet but who may need/want to learn more about it. I will also reference some of the ethical issues surrounding use of AI technologies that developers need to be aware of.

 

7:30-8:00pm - More pizza, catch ups, discussions.

 

It's set to be a great evening and we promise the pizza will be good.

See you there,

 

Dev Hub North Team.
