Affordable Cloud Computing with Serverless

Microsoft Reactor Abu Dhabi

What is this session about? Serverless is event-driven, which means that you don’t get charged because a serverless function exists. You get charged only when an event triggers that function, and the function uses few resources to execute. These resources are why you get charged. Today, this kind of billing is what we refer to as micro-billing. Why should I come? In this session we will explore the following: - Serverless compared to the monolith architecture - Serverless pricing - Build CRUD apps with Serverless - Use Logic Apps to build integrations with zero code - Orchestrate functions with Durable functions - Build Dynamic apps with Durable functions - Serverless Triggers and Bindings Speaker: Chris Nwamba Senior Developer Advocate at Microsoft. Chris is a JavaScript developer, community champion, author and speaker. He spends most of his time helping all level of developers in Africa move from beginner to their career ambitions. Chris helps co-organize the largest conference and developer community in Africa -- Concatenate Conference and ForLoop Africa, respectively. ---------------- You will need a basic JavaScript for this session. You should bring your own laptop (Windows or Mac) with an Internet browser. All you will need is a Microsoft Account, which only requires an email address and for which you can sign up for at the event. Follow @MSFTReactor and #ReactorAbuDhabi on Twitter. See you soon at the Reactor!

Mobile app innovation

Microsoft Reactor Abu Dhabi

What is this session about? In this workshop, you will design an IoT solution for an end-to-end mobile baggage tracking system that leverages cloud services and cross-platform mobile development. At the end of this workshop, you will be better able to design an IoT solution, including mobile apps, using cloud services. Why should I come? In the whiteboard design session, you will work with a group to design an IoT solution using data emitted from RFID tags attached to airline passengers' checked luggage, and mobile applications to allow employees and customers to track those bags from any device. At the end of this whiteboard design session, you will be better able to design an IoT solution, including mobile apps, by leveraging cloud services. In the hands-on lab, you will implement the steps to build an IoT solution for an end-to-end mobile baggage tracking system, that leverages cloud services and cross-platform mobile development.At the end of this hands-on lab, you will discover how to leverage Azure services to implement an IoT solution that includes, RFID tracking, mobile apps, and a continuous integration pipeline for developers. Who should attend? - Application developers - Infrastructure architects. You should bring your own laptop (Windows or Mac). Speaker: Rami Sarieddine Senior Cloud Solutions Architect at Microsoft, with 13 years of experience across industries and wealth of domain expertise on developing and deploying cloud native solutions. Rami has been mentoring startups in UAE for the past 6 years. He is also a published author with 2 titles on web development technologies. ---------------- You should bring your own laptop (Windows or Mac) with an Internet browser.

Beginners Data Science for Python Developers

Microsoft Reactor Abu Dhabi

Every day new data is created. New parts are made and shipped from factories, people continuously tweet, and companies grow and fluctuate causing major changes in the market. With the addition of more data comes the difficulty of being able to process that data. As humans, we can understand complex scenarios, but computers are much better at being able to analyze large datasets. In this workshop, you will get a glimpse into how we can teach machines to analyze complex scenarios at a much larger scale than we're able to. After you've cleaned and organized your data, you will have an opportunity to train and test machine learning models, and even publish your predictor online for others to explore. You do not need any prior experience with data science to attend this workshop. You are likely someone who has ~1 year experience coding, preferrably in Python, but not a requirement. You are interested in learning how to use Python libraries to call machine learning models and make predictions on your data. You should bring your own laptop (Windows or Mac) with an Internet browser. You will be using Azure Notebooks, a cloud-based Jupyter Notebooks instance, and Azure Machine Learning Studio. All you will need is a Microsoft Account, which only requires an email address and for which you can sign up for at the event. 10:00am - 12:00pm Introduction to Machine Learning Models and Linear Regression 12:00 - 1:00pm Lunch 1:00 - 2:00pm Using the Cloud for Machine Learning with Azure ML Studio 2:00 - 2:15pm Break 2:15 - 3:45pm Machine Learning Capstone Project 3:45 - 4pm Wrap Up Follow @MSFTReactor #ReactorAbuDhabi on Twitter to learn more.

Making Your Data Useful for Analysis

Microsoft Reactor Abu Dhabi

Having complete and accurate data is a critical first step to being able to learn from it, but part of the complexity of data science is narrowing down what part of the data is important. In this introductory workshop to Machine Learning you will begin to understand how to narrow down the feature scope of your data so that the predictions are based on causation and not just correlation. You do not need any prior experience with data science to attend this workshop. You are likely someone who is interested in data science, and has 1-2 years coding in Python, or another programming language and feel comfortable enough with Python to be able to code in it during the workshop. You are interested in learning about how to prepare your data for advanced machine learning models using Python and specific Python libraries. You should bring your own laptop (Windows or Mac) with an Internet browser. You will be using Azure Notebooks, a cloud-based Jupyter Notebooks instance. All you will need is a Microsoft Account, which only requires an email address and for which you can sign up for at the event. 10:00am - 11:00am Prepping Data for Learning 11:00am - 12:00pm Principal Component Analysis 12:00pm - 1:00pm Lunch 1:00pm - 2:00pm Machine Learning Accuracy 2:00pm - 2:15pm Break 2:15pm - 3:45pm Machine Learning Capstone Project 3:45pm - 4:00pm Wrap Up Follow @MSFTReactor #ReactorAbuDhabi on Twitter to learn more.
