Daniel Materowski and Tomasz Błeszyński will be running a full-day workshop on Microsoft stack for AI development.

The event will take place in Avanade office in Kraków (Lubicz 23a). Avanade will also provide coffee, snacks and lunch during the event.

We will work on leveraging Cognitive Services and creating bots with Bot Framework.

At the end of this workshop, you should be able to:

I. Build an application that calls various Cognitive Services APIs (specifically Computer Vision).
II. Configure an Azure Search service to extend your data to enable full-text, language-aware search.
III. Build, train, and publish a LUIS model to help your bot communicate effectively.
IV. Build an intelligent bot using Microsoft Bot Framework that leverages LUIS and Azure Search.
V. Perform rapid development/testing with Ngrok and test your bots with unit tests and direct bot communication.
VI. Effectively leverage the custom vision service to create image classification services that can then be leveraged by an application.

You will need:

I. A laptop with Windows 10.
II. Around 10-20 EUR in Azure credit to fully participate (see details below).
III. Visual Studio subscriptions provide 45 / 130 EUR for Azure. You can also register for a 30-day trial subscription. Please make sure you can create and connect to virtual machines in before the workshop.

Workshop will be based on Microsoft Emerging AI Developers bootcamp materials and assumes:

I. Good knowledge of C# and experience with Visual Studio
II. Some experience with Azure portal (ability to create and configure resources)
III. Basic knowledge of MS Bot Framework – checking out this short introduction will be enough
