A new online conference focused on cloud data technologies is coming this fall. It is not just a conference or webinar, it will be an interactive online platform. The focus of the event is data in the cloud (migrating, storing and machine learning). You can pre-register for the conference now.
Some of the topics from the summit include:
Here is an excerpt from the website:
The public cloud has drastically changed systems design, enabled microservices, and lowered the barrier to entry for big data & analytics.
Learn from companies which have migrated data platforms from on-premise to the cloud. See how they were redesigned to take advantage of endless storage and compute power.
Immerse yourself with the platforms which make modern Data Science and Machine Learning possible. Join your peers to see how their data platforms knocked down the old barriers and transformed how they work
Machine Learning for Kids is a site for children and teachers to explore machine learning with the Scratch Programming language. It includes numerous lessons and tutorials for building fun programs which incorporate machine learning.

In Late January 2019, Microsoft launched 3 new certifications aimed at Data Scientists/Engineers. For a while, Microsoft has been toying with different methods for training and credentials. They launched the Microsoft Professional Program in Data Science back in 2017. While it provides great content, it did not result in either a college diploma or an official Microsoft certification. Now Microsoft is in the process of restructing certifications to be more role-focused. Here are details about the 3 certification of interest to data scientists and data engineers.
University can be a great way to learn data science. However, many universities are very expensive, difficult to get admitted, or not geographically feasible. Luckily, a few of them are willing to share data science, machine learning and deep learning materials online for everyone. Here is just I small list I have come across lately.
MIT Deep Learning – Lecture notes, slides and guest talks about deep learning and self driving cars
