Coffee Sessions #18

Luigi in Production

Luigi shares with us why he started ML in Production - A lot of irrelevant content; a lot of clickbait with low standards of quality. He had an entrepreneurial itch and the solution was to start a weekly newsletter. From there he started creating blog posts and now teamed up with Sam Charrington of TWIML to create courses on SagMaker ML.
