Note: This is an in-person workshop in the Seattle / Bellevue area.

Most modern chatbots today use Large Language Models(LLMs), Retrieval Augmented Generation(RAG), and scalable workflows to create a unique conversational experience!

This workshop will equip you with the skills to effectively build your own chatbot and scalable AI workflows for LLMs using and

The Modern MLOps tooling will also provide a reliable framework for your machine learning operations by streamlining processes, increasing efficiency, and adding reproducibility to your AI applications.

This workshop will cover

  • Using LLMs
  • Building RAG system for information retrieval
  • Prompt engineering
  • Creating scalable workflows using (powered by Flyte)
