What we're about
Upcoming events (5)
This session will cover building a report from scratch using Dataverse data as the source. We will cover how to connect, transforming your data and modelling your data to create a report from your Power Platform Dataverse environment.
This session assumes a very basic understanding of Dataverse and assumes no knowledge of Power BI.
Laura Graham-Brown | MVP
Over 20 year experience at being passionate about training, solving problems and loving a new challenge. I have worked with household names and clients very few will know, from the huge corporate to the small business, helping them make SharePoint, Flow, PowerApps, Power BI and Office solve their business needs.
From "Embedded devices" to "Smart devices", then "Connected smart devices" and now known as IoT, the Internet of Things has evolved at an accelerated pace in the past couple decades and is now at the core of the digital transformation most industries are going through.
But let's state it as it is: IoT looks complex and developing solutions that integrate IoT seem to not for the faint of heart. While growing at an accelerated pace the IoT started spanning across many domains, verticals, and industries, forcing hardware engineers to learn about software, forcing embedded developers to learn about the Cloud and its development, forcing non-embedded developers to learn about device development, forcing Hardware and Software engineers to collaborate with electrical, mechanical, chemical engineers, data scientists, operators, and more. The traditional Operational Technology (aka OT) now needs to fully integrate with the Information Technology (IT)... without messing up with it!
Let's demystify IoT with a simpler and more digestible approach.
Episode 1: The simple way to prototype an IoT solution from device to Cloud
Like for all projects, IoT solutions all start with a proof of concept, a prototype, to validate scenarios and evaluate technologies. Considering the accelerated pace of the digital transformation of many industries, these POCs need to be developed rapidly and efficiently, getting as close as possible to an actual real-life implementation at a minimum cost and in a minimum amount of time. Let's look at the options available in the Microsoft IoT portfolio as well as some of the emerging technologies that will make prototyping IoT solutions simpler and faster. This session will be demo-only and introduce low-code/no-code options for devices and cloud apps, development as well as showcase some tooling that can come handy in POCs and development stages of an IoT solution.
Olivier Bloch, Principal PM, Microsoft
I am Principal Program Manager at Microsoft in the Azure IoT team, working on developer experience and communities engagement.
What is the event about?
You’re probably already using DevOps processes even if you don’t realise it. DevOps is where development (Dev) and operations (Ops) teams collaborate to increase the speed and reliability of software delivery. Often referred to as a culture, DevOps connects people, processes and technology to deliver continuous value – which means you can spend more time creating great code.
Samuel Rowe, Microsoft Cloud Solution Architect and Peter Murray, Field Solutions Engineer at GitHub join forces to take you through a series of demos showing you everything from getting started through to managing the flow of work, security and quality and deploying and publishing code in the cloud.
Who is it aimed at?
If you’re a professional developer interested in the ‘dev’ element of DevOps but don’t know how to get started, this session is for you.
Why should you attend?
You’ll get the chance to ask questions of the speakers in live Q&A sessions and find out the best next steps to adopt DevOps practices in your organisation.
We hope to see you there!
