Joel Lord
Red Hat OpenShift, Developer Advocate

Joel Lord is passionate about web and technology in general. He likes to learn new things but most of all, he likes to share his discoveries. He does so by travelling at various conferences all across the globe.
He graduated from college in computer programming in the last millennium. Apart for a little break to get his BSc in computational astrophysics, he was always in the industry.
As a developer advocate with Red Hat OpenShift, he meets with developers to help them make the web a better place.
During his free time, he is usually found stargazing in a camping site somewhere or brewing a batch of beer in his garage.


How nice would it be to be able to remember everyone’s name? What if you could just walk into a room and know everyone’s Twitter handle? Kubernetes is a great tool that is being used more and more for deploying applications, but it can also be used in the context of machine learning. In this talk, the speaker will demonstrate how to use NodeJs, a touch of machine learning and a sprinkle of Kubernetes to recognize people in a crowd.

With a demo inspired by the Black Mirror series, the attendees will learn how to use openly available tools to do face recognition with NodeJs and how to create and deploy microservices in a Kubernetes cluster.
