Hack Talks is a one day high-tech conference with the most amazing workshops and top notch keynotes from the bleeding edge of technology.
Modern development pipeline using containers and cloud
How's and why's of setting up a modern node/react-based development pipeline for continuous deployment. A hands-on exercise on how to get a quick start to a development setup including best practices, container technologies and automated testing. This session will tangibly describe the tools and practices necessary for producing modern, high-quality software products quickly and efficiently.

Alexa Skill Development
Alexa is the speech and personal assistant technology that powers Amazon Echo. It can be used to listen music, check weather and traffic, answer questions, control household devices and much more. In this workshop you’ll get a hands-on introduction to Amazon Alexa and its ecosystem, and you’ll learn how to build Alexa skill from scratch. You'll create Alexa skill by programming AWS Lambda function in Node.js, you'll store skill data in DynamoDB database and you'll learn how to use SSML (Speech Synthesis Markup Language). Target audience for this workshop are developers who would like to extend their knowledge in order to be able to develop and publish skills for Alexa.

Running data science pipelines on the GPU using RAPIDS
RAPIDS is a set of open-source libraries enabling you to run data science pipelines entirely on the GPU with familiar Python interfaces. By tapping into the parallelism of GPUs, RAPIDS not only accelerates training of data science models but also speeds up common data preparation tasks resulting into faster iteration of your pipelines. In this workshop, you will learn how to get up to speed with RAPIDS as we interactively explore data ingestion and preparation as well as model training and inference using realistic examples.

How to create leading intelligent software with aito.ai
Aito.ai is like a database or search engine, but for AI operations. It allows you to integrate AI as easy as you would integrate SQL queries. In the workshop, we will make “dumb” grocery store webshop, build on Node.js and React, smart and turn it into a 1-minute shopping experience.
Antti Rauhala - Co-Founder & Chief Data Scientist @ aito.ai
