Design on Cloud Training Sessions

Calling all IT Administrators and CAD Professionals!

Gartner predicts that public cloud services will grow 20.4% in 2022 to nearly $500 billion. If you are part of the community that supports HPC workloads such as chip design and manufacturing, it is imperative that you master the concepts behind cloud, including key vendor offerings. DAC is sponsoring an exceptional and free* hands-on from three of the top vendors integral to enabling EDA workloads on Cloud: Azure, Google Cloud and NetApp.

In the 3 half-day trainings covering 2 days, you will get hands-on experience on cloud native storage strategies, Infrastructure-as-a-service (IAAS) fundamentals, IAM (Identity and Authentication Management) and much, much more. You will have the opportunity to learn from experts and most of all, you will leave with enough knowledge to define and implement a cloud strategy in your organization. These training sessions are complimentary with an I LOVE DAC badge and are also included in the Engineering Track and Full Conference registrations.

Thursday is Training Day offers DAC attendees training sessions in popular subjects such as machine learning, deep learning and embedded systems.

Thursday is Training Day sessions provide by Doulos:

Attendees may choose sessions from two parallel tracks. Many attendees will want to attend  both the morning and afternoon sessions from the same track, but it is also possible to mix-and-match sessions from two different tracks or to attend just a single half-day session.

Track 2:

In addition to the traditional Thursday is Training Day, Doulos will host a lunch and learn tutorial on Python for Scientific Computing and Deep Learning on Wednesday, July 13, at DAC between 12:15 – 1:15 p.m.  Register for the Lunch & Learn.


Machine Learning session provided by Catalit:

First, for the very first time,  Data Scientists (and aspiring Data Scientists) can take a hands-on course to become highly proficient in the art of building ML models. Details are listed below.

Machine Learning Bootcamp for Data Scientists 

This hands-on machine learning bootcamp is a half-day session where students learn to train machine learning models to solve both regression and classification problems. At the end of attending both modules the students will have learnt how to prepare the data and feed it to a machine learning model and learn the most useful concept in machine learning: rapid iteration. Detailed information can be found at:

Module 1: Introduction to Machine Learning in Python

Module 2: Improving Machine Learning Models


Note: Thursday training day sessions are not included in the DAC pass. All Thursday training sessions are additional fees. Register today!

Attendees for the hand-on training are required to bring laptops.
