Azure HappyHours – Azure Fundamentals

Microsoft Research

DUE TO HIGH DEMAND, WE ARE ORGANISING ANOTHER MEETUP ON THE SAME AZURE FUNDAMENTALS CONTENT. More than 100 Azure services offer everything you need to build and run your applications with optimum performance, security, and scale that the cloud has to offer. But knowing where to begin with all these services can seem overwhelming. We bring you Azure HappyHours every month to learn Azure services with developer-friendly code samples so that we can empower developers to achieve more. This Azure HappyHours is designed to cover Azure concepts in small exercises and labs – along with the project files available in GitHub – to reinforce your skills. Agenda: Using core Azure infrastructure and platform services - including how to choose which service for which task. Planning appropriately for availability, scale, and security while considering cost and performance. Integrating key technologies, including containers and Kubernetes, artificial intelligence and machine learning and the Internet of Things. Speaker: Vivek Sridhar Sr. Developer Product Marketing Manager Microsoft Corporation India Pvt. Ltd. Vivek is a technophile and an Open Source contributor with around 14 years of experience in the Software Industry and works at Microsoft as Sr.Developer Product Marketing Manager / Technology Evangelist. In his previous roles, he has mentored startups/developers, spoken at conferences/meetups for DigitalOcean as Senior Developer Advocate, was the Co-Founder / Chief-Architect of NoodleNext Technology. He was also heading DevOps and QA at BlackBuck and was a DevOps Solution Architect at HCL (Australia) in client engagement. Vivek started his career with IBM Rational (India Software Labs) as a Software Developer and is passionate about working with the software developer community.

Introduction to Python for Data Science

Microsoft Research

Data enables us to understand the world around us. Whether we're gathering data about our natural world to understand how it is changing, or analyzing patterns in how societies grow and change to ensure we're supporting all people, data is what drives the conversation. In this one-day workshop, we invite you to take the first step to learning how to understand data. With the power of Python, you will be able to explore data more quickly and develop more complex learnings from that data with just a few lines of code. Step 1: Learn the basics of Python coding and understand how it can be used to digest large data sets. You do not need any prior experience with data science to attend this workshop. You are likely someone who is interested in data science, maybe have coded a bit before in any programming language, and are looking to understand the basics of the Python programming language and the libraries that help with getting data prepped for analysis. 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.

Beginners Data Science for Python Developers

Microsoft Research

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.

Building Software That Recognizes You

Microsoft Research

Are you a developer who is curious how your computer or phone recognize it's you and not your sibling when you try to unlock the device? With the power of Azure artificial intelligence (Cognitive Services) and your existing coding powers, we invite you to join us on a Python Flask Azure journey to build your very own smart app! You do not need any prior experience with artificial intelligence (AI) to attend this workshop. You are likely someone who is interested in AI, and has ~5 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 should also have experience coding in a local IDE (e.g. VS Code, Visual Studio, Atom, Eclipse). You are interested in learning how to create a web app, deploy it on Azure, and call Azure Cognitive Services to make your app ""smarter"". You should bring your own laptop (Windows or Mac) with an Internet browser and a local dev environment. You will be using VS Code and Azure. You should come with VS Code installed and ready to build Python applications. You will need a free Microsoft Account (which only requires an email address) and an Azure subscription to complete this workshop. If you do not yet have an Azure subscription, we recommend signing up for the Free Subscription available at azure.microsoft.com prior to arrival.
