If you want to learn machine learning in the most stimulating and efficient manner in order to make meaningful and automated analyses of your API data that you can show to your stakeholders, this is for you. This is why we provide a project based course on time series using the python library LSTM, giving you a walk through to getting data, building out a strategy and being ready to get predictions. Whether you are in the following industries such as mobility, health, data economics, digital retail, smart cloud – knowing how to make predictions with data using the latest machine learning algorithms in libraries gives you the competitive edge. A basic knowledge of Python would be extremely helpful. You will not need Jupyter notebook, but we will instead be using the tech learning platform www.diggit.no for a highly stimulating learning experience.

What is an api? How do you use one? This is a hands on workshop, an introduction to APIs. You’ll be well prepared to start using APIs that are available in all tracks during Junction.
No previous coding experience required, but always useful! Bring your laptop.
Try to have the app POSTman installed so that you can follow along during the workshop, or show up 15min earlier for help with the installation.

A short introduction to trading Cryptocurrencies using Python, walking you through getting data, building out a strategy and being ready to post trades. A basic knowledge of Python would be extremely helpful, but not mandatory. Try to come along with Jupyter installed so you can develop along with the workshop (http://jupyter.org/index.html).
All content will be posted on GitHub after the workshop under – https://github.com/AaronCritchley/hack-junction
There will be 2 workshops consecutively, taking 25-30 minutes each. Both fit around 20 participants.
