After I put out the word for who might have an idea for a workshop at
SCaLE, one of the private responses I got was from Oindrilla about a
workshop idea she and Aakanksha have. I have a copy of their abstract
below. This email is a call for participation in helping organize and
run a workshop based on that idea on Thursday 28 July in Los Angeles.
It seems data science is a very hot topic, and I believe we'll fill all our
seats with interested attendees. For that reason, I've included Landon
LaSmith from the Open Data Hub team in this message, since it's ODH on the
Operate First community cloud that powers the workshop. This is a good
opportunity for cross-community promotions.
All: Let me know (either in this channel or in a direct message) if you
are interested in participating in person or remotely, and definitely tell
me about your concerns and hesitations, in case I can help in any way.
I'm hoping to reach out to folks directly to ask if they are interested,
but don't be surprised if I get distracted by a squirrel before I get to
you -- it's nothing personal! You are wanted!
Once we know who is involved, we can sort out roles and get to planning.
Most likely I'll be responsible for ping/power/pipe, coffee breaks, and
other logistics. It should be a bring-your-own-laptop affair, but I will
look into whether we can get a small supply of ready-to-go laptops for
people who didn't or couldn't bring one. (Hopefully we'll know in time to
be able to advertise that.)
OK, let's get together and get planning!
 Abstract by @Oindrilla Chatterjee <ochatter(a)redhat.com> and @Aakanksha
"Want to learn how to accelerate your development of AI applications on the
hybrid cloud? In this workshop, we introduce you to Operate First, an open
cloud platform that provides cloud services and applications that support
data scientists. We will walk you through the process of building a simple
AIOps tool from scratch on the Operate First cloud and learn how to move
your AI workloads to the cloud by implementing an end-to-end ML tool.
We start by learning how to collect data from an open CI/CD data source,
use Jupyterlab and its extensions to manage dependencies, and run jupyter
notebooks. We will learn how to perform automated, repeatable experiments
using Elyra and Kubeflow Pipelines, create and deploy machine learning
modes on OpenShift using Seldon and visualize results on a Superset
By the end of this workshop, you will have an idea of how to build a simple
AIOps tool on the cloud that can support your CI/CD processes. You will
learn how to get started with, build data science tools, or onboard your
existing projects on the Operate First cloud."
 After being postponed earlier in the year, SCaLE is making a (hopefully
one-time) return to the Hilton LAX. This does have some convenience as an
easy to reach and depart from location when flying from LAX airport.
