Udacity at IAA

Udacity will be at the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt, Germany, this week!


I’ll be flying over on Wednesday as part of Lufthansa’s FlyingLab which is a little bit like South by Southwest in the sky.


My main event in Frankfurt will be at the me Convention, which is a conference put on by Mercedes-Benz in conjunction with SXSW. On Friday afternoon I’ll be speaking on a panel entitled, “Teaching Machines to Drive Like Humans”, with Sarah Marie Thornton from Stanford, and Danny Shapiro from NVIDIA. Come say hello!

Late Friday afternoon, Udacity will be at the Speaker’s Corner at the IAA New Mobility World. Meet our European team and ask me as many questions as you like about Udacity’s Self-Driving Car Engineer Nanodegree Program.


Saturday afternoon we are excited to be holding a career workshop for Udacity students. Students will have the opportunity to take professional headshots, get career coaching from Udacity experts, and hear from me about hiring in the autonomous vehicle industry. This event is full, but drop a note here if this is something you’d be interested in attending for the future.

Saturday evening I’ll be hosting a dinner for Udacity Self-Driving Car students in Frankfurt. This event is full, too, but I am excited to meet everyone and we are working hard to squeeze people in. So if you are an enrolled student and would like to attend, send me an email to david.silver@udacity.com and we’ll find a space.


I have to leave Germany on Sunday, sadly 😦

But the reason I’m rushing home is to get to TechCrunch Disrupt in San Francisco. Udacity has some big announcements coming out next week, so keep your ear to the ground for that!

If you’d like to say hello in Frankfurt, but won’t be able to make any of the events I mentioned here, email me at david.silver@udacity.com. I will have a little bit of down time between events and I’m excited to meet people on my first trip to Germany!
