A study trip, packed with seminars, labs, excellent networking opportunities, hackjams… and lots of fun, food, and drinks of course!
Monday 4 February to Friday 8 February 2019
Amsterdam, the Netherlands
For Belgian senior students in IT / Computer Sciences, with software development and engineering running through their veins.
The study trip is powered by Barco and delaware. We believe that preparing students for the next steps in their career is not only the responsibility of universities. That’s why we want to work shoulder to shoulder with the academic world – and with you of course.
The study trip offers 3 full-day tracks combining theoretical information and hands-on sessions on Machine learning, Continuous integration and Microservices.
Track 1: Machine Learning and AI
Exploring machine learning, big data technologies and A.I. through 2 hands-on sessions: “Machine Learning for Computer Vision” and “Predicting train occupancy in Belgium”. This track will offer you a peak into 2 different machine learning stacks.
Track 2 : Quality and continuous integration
A rough guide to the exciting world of test automation, continuous delivery, and infrastructure-as-code, highlighting some research findings that support the view that these DevOps practices are definitely here to stay. Together we will turn one of your pet projects into production ready code by setting up automated testing, continuous integration and automated deployment through a Microsoft and an open source toolchain.
Track 3: Microservices
Introducing you to the latest means for realizing resilience and elasticity in cloud applications and illustrate patterns of concurrent and distributed programming. You will get insight into the concerns of a distributed architecture based on real life Azure and AWS projects and get a taste of Akka and Docker.
Speakers and lab coaches will include:
ACADEMICS - Prof. Dr. Erik Mannens (Ugent), Prof. Dr. Coen De Roover (VUB), Prof. Dr. Serge Demeyer (UAntwerpen)
BUSINESS - Wim Meerschman (Lead Expert – delaware) Emanuel Dejonghe (Senior Consultant - delaware), Karel Moens (Research Engineer- Barco), Wouter Devinck (Software Engineer - Barco), Willem Van Iseghem (Software Engineer - Barco), etc.
