GDG Chernihiv are back with the Community Speedrun Challenge!
The Community Speedrun Challenge is a training program that will run in May where you’ll have the opportunity to join four Speedruns and get hands-on experience with Machine Learning on Google Cloud, and take your first steps with tools like BigQuery, Cloud Speech API, and Cloud ML Engine. Every Speedrun is open for a week to give you the ability to finish all labs in your best time, scoring more points and winning prizes.
We are excited to participate because May Speedrun focuses on what we love: Machine Learning and Data Science.
If you are a cloud beginner or more advanced user — enjoy the learning experience with us!
Both the webinars and the labs in the speedruns are designed so both beginners and more advanced users can enjoy the learning experience.
All participants will get a one-month free subscription to #Qwiklabs (worth 55usd) and earn a badge for each Speedrun they complete (to show off at LinkedIn or cv)
