• What we'll do
As a followup from last year’s fantastic Introduction to APIs workshop by our talented member, Head of Data Engineering & Data Science Alison Wells, we've now been kindly invited to her company HQ (hot music startup Kobalt & their swanky new office in Monument) for an even more exciting technical talk about an important tool - CLOUD INFRASTRUCTURE!! Alison will explain what the Cloud is, why you should use it, and help you get started with hands-on experience of Amazon Web Services (AWS) without spending any money!!

• Important to know
You will notice that you will be on the waiting list when you register. Using our database of your attendance/cancellation/no-show history, Sandrine has written a program which automates the decision to give you a space for the meetup or not, based on a weighted scoring calculation. We hope this automated, entirely data-driven process will encourage our community to be as co-operative as possible re. attending AI Club events going forward!
