Marian aka Mignev in slack commented on one of our youtube videos about how there are so many underrated topics in MLOps that get brushed over to in lieu of talking about the flashy stuff. Demetrios saw that comment and said we can do a coffee session on it but only if Marian is the guest of honor! Marian agreed and bam! You've got a full hour of Vishnu, Marian and Demetrios talking about what some of the most underrated/underappreciated pieces of MLOps are. Favorite Quote From This Session: "Start small and start simple to focus only on a small problem that you can bring more value to than the others."

I'm a passionate entrepreneur, backend dude & visionary. These are the three main things described me very well. My every day routines include making things happen and motivating people to work hard and learn all the time, because I think success is a marathon, not just a sprint! I love to communicate with bright creative minds who want to change things. My favorite professional topics are backend stuff, ops, infra, IoT, AI, Startups, Entrepreneurship :) In my free time I love to cook for my family.
Demetrios is one of the main organizers of the MLOps community and currently resides in a small town outside Frankfurt, Germany. He is an avid traveller who taught English as a second language to see the world and learn about new cultures. Demetrios fell into the Machine Learning Operations world, and since, has interviewed the leading names around MLOps, Data Science, and ML. Since diving into the nitty-gritty of Machine Learning Operations he felt a strong calling to explore the ethical issues surrounding ML. When he is not conducting interviews you can find him making stone stacking with his daughter in the woods or playing the ukulele by the campfire.
