# SESSION: Democratizing AI with Azure Cognitive Services
Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning can sometimes feel overwhelming. Even though it is supercool, all the algorithms and mathematical formula you have to understand makes entry level a little challenging. But wait no more! Azure Cognitive Services are services designed to solve specific use cases using AI and ML, all served to you through simple SDKs, REST APIs or Docker containers.
In this session we will look how to use Azure Cognitive Services to identify objects in pictures, analyze the mood of a video or find anomalies in data sets without prior knowledge of the world of AI.

# SESSION: Works on my machine… Docker for .NET developers
There is a LOT of talk about containerization today, and about Docker in particular. At least in the Microsoft world. The rest of the world has been using it for quite a while, but seeing that it is mostly Linux based, it has had some problems getting traction with Microsoft developers. But that is about to change.
The technology raises a lot of questions though. What is it? Why is it awesome? How do I get started? How can it help me? Is it just for huge companies like Netflix? Is there any reason to use it if you aren’t running a 100+ node cluster? Will it blend?
All of them valid questions when you are getting started, but once you get over the initial "what is it?", you quickly get into "that is really cool" and "why hasn’t anyone told me about this before". And you realize that there are a lot of reasons to go further and learn more.
In this talk you will get an introduction to Docker, what it is and what it does, and then a walkthrough of how to get started with it. You will get to see the tools you need, the initial commands you need to know, as well as some demos showing some of the cool things you can easily do with Docker. Taking you from “what is it?” to “this is how you set up a cluster with several containers in minutes” in an hour-ish.
# SPEAKER: Chris Klug
Chris Klug is a developer-badass-as-a-service that either creates or solves problems depending on who you ask. He loves creating and building things. Whether it be a new application, a new kitchen or a new RC helicopter, you will see him building things all the time. Most of the time, that means writing code and solving problems for clients at a company called Active Solution in Stockholm though. Except for the many days he spends at conferences and usergroups, talking about doing things he is passionate about, and for the days he goes mountain biking, IPSC shooting, kiteboarding or RC helicopter flying.
