UK Community Day – Bots and AI – London
Microsoft Reactor
12/12/2018 from 8:30 am - 5:00 pm

This free one-day hackathon, on December 12th, will be a fantastic opportunity to learn all about Bots and AI. No experience necessary, but it will be developer focused.

If you haven’t looked at Bots and Machine Learning yet, we’ll get you up to speed with introductory sessions as well as some more advanced flash talks. Then we will take a break and it’s over to you (so bring your laptop!). You can work on your own solutions or use one of our project suggestions, as individuals or in teams. Experts (Mark Stokes @MarkStokes, Bill Ayers @SPDoctor and Gosia Borzecka @GosiaBorzecka, plus Microsoft) will be there to help you through the process of getting everything working.

Thanks to the event’s sponsors, we’ll have some swag to give away at the event and you’ll also have a chance to make a presentation on what you or your team have been working on, and we’ll have some great prizes for the best ideas.

The event is at the Microsoft Reactor in the trendy Shoreditch area of London. The venue is easy to get to via public transport, see the venue website for access information.

You will need to bring along your own laptops and will hopefully have already set it up ready to go. We’ll provide the experts, power, caffeine and lunch to get you going. There are only 30 spaces so register soon to avoid disappointment.

If you have any dietary requirements, please add a comment when registering for the hackathon.
