About the Talk

Using Kubernetes, JupyterHub, and DigitalOcean, The Data Incubator – an immersive data science bootcamp and the leading training and placement organization in the world – was able to scale and offer their curriculum to an online class of 20,000 students in Subsaharan Africa – for free.

In this Tech Talk, Michael Li and Robert Schroll will speak about how The Data Incubator’s training success depends on an integrated Jupyter notebook-based learning management system. They will discuss some of the challenges in learning data science and their solutions. The talk will also feature a use case showing how they built a learning management system in the cloud using Docker and Kubernetes to dynamically provision interactive learning environments for students that allow dynamic code execution and integrate with live code examples. This has enabled them to scale their curriculum to tens of thousands of students in the developing world – simultaneously. The Data Incubator relies on DigitalOcean’s cloud infrastructure, which allows their team to focus on doing what they do best – delivering world-class data science education to students all over the world.

Darian Wilkin – a Solutions Architect at DigitalOcean – will also discuss how the DigitalOcean products and services used have enabled The Data Incubator to scale up so quickly and easily.

What You’ll Learn

– How to build an interactive data science curriculum
– How to scale using Kubernetes and JupyterHub
– How you can use DigitalOcean solutions to achieve all the above

This Talk is Designed For
Those interested in education, innovative learning environments, data science, immersive bootcamps, Kubernetes, JupyterHub, and DigitalOcean.

Some familiarity with Kubernetes, Jupyter, or data science would be useful. But we will also break these things down and offer explanations for those who may not be fluent in these subjects.
