6:00 — Workshop begins
7:00 — Discussion


In this workshop, we will introduce you to TensorFlow 2.0 and to model-building styles for beginners and experts, including sequential, functional, and subclassing APIs. You’ll see complete, end-to-end code examples in each style, from “Hello, world” all the way through advanced examples. We will also demonstrate how to deploy your trained models using TensorFlow Serving to support real-time and batch inference.


Attendees are welcome to bring a laptop and code along with us. All examples will be made available for reference. If you’d like to participate, please have Python 3.X installed, as well as Jupyter, TensorFlow 2.0, and Pandas
