Welcome to Global Azure Bootcamp! All around the world, user groups
and communities want to learn about Azure and Cloud Computing. On
April 27, 2019, tech communities world-wide will come together once
again in the sixth great Global Azure Bootcamp event!
Bootcamps are happening on the same day all over the world - come to Dublin and join in - please share your experience under the social hashtag #GlobalAzure!
It is important to point out, that while this event is *about* Azure, it is *not* a commercial event. Azure bootcamp Dublin is organised by the local MVP tech commmunity - we are here to share our knowledge, not sell anything.
The majority of the speakers at this years event are Microsoft 'Most Valued Professionals' (MVP) - experts in technology that Microsoft has recognised as community leaders outstanding in their field. You can find out more at the MVP Award Website.
Speaking of lunch - you won't go hungry! ... Microsoft are very kindly providing lunch for the day. The event location is the New Horizons office in Dublin city centre - directions and map below.
So! ... please join us to learn, ask questions and talk to new friends you just havn't met yet :)
Today, every one of us wants to get things done fast. The fact of the matter is Serverless is a fantastic platform for doing things fast. Because, with Serverless, you really don’t have time to waste in terms of delivering your business value. Turns out you can with the right cloud services. In this talk we’ll create a microservice using Azure Functions and also get introduced to bigger picture of serverless computing.
Introducing Azure DevOps – What, Why, How?
This talk will serve as an introduction to the
Power Platform and the three services that under
pin it Power BI, PowerApps and Flow. The intention
of the Power Platform is to reduce the technical
skills required to creates apps that act on your
data, to analyze your data and to automate your
business process. These are Lowcode/Nocode
platforms that empower organizations to build
Joe will also explain how the Dynamics 365 platform has now become the Common Data Service allowing users to build "model driven" application in Power Apps addition canvas based apps.
Joe will demo each of the services to give you an understanding of their capabilities.
In this new era of cloud platform and cloud services, we have to rethink how we design, develop and deploy our applications to fully utilize its strength. It will influence whole life cycle of application development, and can offer great possibilities if we know what it can offer to us. In this talk we will discuss some of the most common architectural design patterns, problems and solutions, in the areas of availability, resiliency, data management and performance.
Anyone who follows Azure cannot fail to have
noticed the attention being devoted to Azure
Blueprints since their launch at the Ignite
conference last year. But just what are
Blueprints, and what can they do? And are they
really that different from a Resource Manager
In short, what is all the fuss about?
This talk will be a deep dive into Azure Blueprints. We’ll show you what they are and what they can do, as well as discussing why they’re an important addition to the Azure deployment and governance toolset. Attendees will gain a better understanding of when to use Blueprints, and how to get started..
You surely heard enthusiastically about Terraform from your friends using AWS, so how is using Terraform with Azure? I will share our experience in rebuilding our infrastructure in Azure using Terraform to define the production and Q&A environments, and with that the lessons learned, like:
We will introduce Terraform briefly and try to answer these questions and more.
In this session Ben will walk you through a home-made IoT project with the data ultimately landing in Power BI for visualisation. A Raspberry Pi is the IoT device, with sensors and camera attached to give an end-to-end streaming solution. You will see Python used to run the program and process the images. Microsoft Azure plays its part where Microsoft Cognitive Services enriches the images with facial attributes and recognition, Azure SQL stores the metadata, Azure Blob storage holds the images, Power BI visualises the activity and Microsoft Flow sends mobile notifications. We will have a hands-on part where you can stream sensor data right into a Power BI real-time dataset. You'll see enough to walk out and get your own project started straight away!
