It's time to have another "Unconvention" night at BAUG, where instead of one or two "main" presentations we have a number of members from the community step up to present short, sharp "micro-presentations" that are 10-20 minutes in length.

So far we have the following line up (but there's room for more!):


Setting Up Your Own Blog with Sandra.Snow and Azure Websites
Mateusz Ligeza

Mateusz will share his own experience with setting up a blog on Azure using Sandra.Snow.

Azure Cool Storage
Todd Whitehead

The newly released cool storage is low-cost storage for object data that is infrequently accessed and long lived . Example use cases include backups, media content, scientific data, compliance data, and archival data. This lightning fast trip around the new service will examine what it is, how it compares to existing storage options and how the new name is not at all confusing.

Will I ever see your face again – Microsoft’s Cognitive Services
Adam Finster

Microsoft’s Cognitive Services (formerly Project Oxford) is a set of services (APIs / SDKs/ etc.) provided to developers in order to help make more intelligent applications. This brief demo will showcase the basic Face and Emotion APIs as a starting point towards building your own “Big Brother”.

Easy Desktop Integration with Microsoft Flow
Dan Toomey

Want to email yourself tweets using a certain keyword? Or maybe get a text notification when your manager sends you an email? Find out how an Office 365 user can set up a simple integration like these in minutes with no development tools or even requiring access to the Azure Portal.


Interested in presenting a session of your own? These can be demos or just theoretical discussions, with or without slides - totally up to you! Just needs to be something cloud-related. Here is a slide with some ideas, created by our host Todd Whitehead:
