Jam-packed week of events at Derivco Durban

Last week we decided to end the year with a bang with 3 dev events in 1 week! It sounded like a massive undertaking but in the end, it all came together really well.

We started the week off, Monday, with the first session of a series called AI Masterclass.

This session, an introduction to Neural Networks which was presented by the Facebook Artificial Intelligence Research (FAIR) team which was followed up an hour later with a live Q&A with Facebook’s AI engineers. The video recording of the session has been uploaded to the Facebook Developer Circle: Durban group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/DevCDurban/

Next up Wednesday 8 November, we got together to find out whats new for developers in the newly released Windows 10 Creators update. The stream was presented by by Kevin Gallo and members of the Windows engineering team covering topics ranging from Xbox game dev, .NET Standard 2.0, Xamarin, Microsoft Graph and Fluent design to name a few.
