On Saturday, 23rd February 2019, DSC NSEC and GCDC Kolkata organised Kolkata’s first Cloud Study Jam. It was one of the most informative and interesting workshops I have ever been too.
The first session was presented by Sumitra Bagchi on “Essentials of GCP for ML/AI” who taught us to use and work on quests on QwikLabs. Machine Learning is a very intriguing topic and getting an opportunity to have a hands-on practice Lab experience was a blessing. The ‘Baseline-Data/Ml/AI’ is the quest she suggested us to start with. It had 13 hands-on labs which were all fun to do. They had very clearly explained steps which helped me to complete the quest easily. I earned a badge on ‘Baseline: Data, ML, AI’.
The next session was taken by DSC NSEC Lead Anubhav Singh, who clearly and in simple words explained to us the meaning and basics of IoT, which is also a topic which is on huge demand now-a-days.
I have always been interested in exploring and learning new topics like these and hence I am going to do the next quest that Anubhav suggested i.e. ‘IoT in the Google Cloud’.
All these people and their knowledge on different topics are a huge inspiration! Thank you so much, DSC NSEC and GCDC Kolkata for this opportunity. Looking forward to more such sessions and study jams!
