Between ensuring that the right version Python/Pip are installed on your system, & that it doesn't conflict with other Python/Pip versions on your system AND that when you deploy your model to the cloud that the versions of the dependencies you've used in your projects are still compatible with the version on your cloud-based system, it's a wonder that we ever get any time to focus on building & training our neural networks.

Fortunately, there's a way to ensure that all of this is a never a problem again - Containers! (specifically, Minishift)

With containers, we can create a clean, virtual environment to setup & train our neural networks in, & then deploy them at scale with the exact same same environment. No more dependency hell!

In this workshop, you will learn:

How to build a Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) that can detect handwritten digits (with Keras & the MNIST dataset)
How to train & deploy a CNN with the Flask web framework & Keras
How to install & run Minishift (a locally run OpenShift cluster of one image) on your machine
How to create a project in OpenShift
How to create an app in OpenShift & pull the source code for application from GitHub

**Please bring your Meetup RSVP Confirmation & ID to check-in**
