**Stuart Greenlees * Darren Broderick**
Stuart works at Liberty IT and has been coding, designing and architecting solutions for over 20 years. He is passionate about discovering business value through emerging technology exploration using a customer centric approach with the aim to build simple, elegant and intuitive products.

For the last year Darren's focus has been improving my serverless skills by simultaneously learning and teaching. For example, I became AWS certified, subsequently ran AWS workshops, and had the opportunity to talk about these experiences at NiDevConf 2019. Beyond this, I have also worked as a technical lead for a product that served a partner company and oversaw final development and migration of the application. My passions now lie in Machine Learning (ML) and I have participated in AWS DeepRacer while I am currently studying for the AWS Certified Machine Learning Specialty. Additionally, I am writing a review on Reinforcement Machine Learning for LIT for the development.

**Andrada Olleanu**
Andrada is a 22 year old Romanian and is doing a masters in Data Science and Analytics. She will mainly talk about how to get started in Data Science, some tips and tricks and introduce Kaggle alongside her experiences on the platform.
