Most casual observers don't realize how hard it is to be a programmer or designer; your determination has to exceed the practicalities of life. With the odds against you, a Rabbiteer's will often win just because you have so much determination that they can power through all the adversity.
It's no secret that passion makes it much easier to get excited about something. Creating great solutions is incredibly rewarding but really hard. A Rabbiteer's passion is electric and, like moths to a flame, it attracts likeminded people to get on board with our vision.
This may seem obvious, but we are looking for intelligence in our teams; there is no substitute to exceptional expertise. Doing things faster, cheaper and better all stem from a Rabbiteer being 'smarter than the average bear.'
" Space, says the introduction to the guide, is big, really big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind bogglingly big it is. And so on... "
Welcome to a rocket fueled journey into the deep dark realm of professional software development and UX/UI design.
The Rabbiteer sessions are series of workshops, presented by our experts, on the latest in technology and design, such as artificial intelligence, cloud magic, shiny mobile tech, continuous integration, experience design practices, and the list goes on. The workshops attempt to curb the knowledge gap between university and the workplace, or to upgrade an outdated dev house. The sessions will be run throughout the year, alternating between Johannesburg and Pretoria. in different locations around the country. Are you up for the ride?

Thanks to the openness of the machine learning community, anyone with a serious interest in machine learning these days, can get up a model to recognise characters or generate Trump-like tweets in a couple of hours. But what happens when we need to train a model to do a customer facing task, that we trust enough to deploy to a production system? And how do we get that model into production and maintain it once it is there? My talk aims to share some of the struggles, trade-offs and strategies from the trenches of training and building the infrastructure for a complex deep learning model for production use.What You Missed
