All demos will use 100% open source tools including Jupyter Notebook, Docker, Kubernetes, Airflow, Spark, Tensorflow, and NetflixOSS Microservices.  
Chris will focus on continuous ML/AI model deployment, auto-scaling within a cloud environment, and "auto-shifting" between cloud environments for eXtreme High Availability (XHA) and cost-savings.
Everything will originate from a single Jupyter Notebook.  All code is 100% open source and available here:  All Docker images are available here:
