For the 5th year in a row, ITCamp Community is organising Global Azure Boot Camp (https://global.azurebootcamp.net/).
This is a global event that takes place in over 159 locations around the world. Like last year, Cluj-Napoca is hosting a GABC and appears on the Azure map.
On April 22nd, you are invited to join this event which will have three 90 minute workshops which will be part theoretical and part practical, so we advise you to bring a laptop 🙂
I will be speaking at the event, and my workshop is about ARM templates 🙂
The event will start at 9:00 AM and will finish at around 2:00 PM.
Here are the event workshops:
Azure Functions (Radu Vunvulea)
What are Azure Functions? AWS Lambda from Azure. This is the fastest way how we can present Azure Functions. During this workshop, we will have a challenge to create a system that can process and analyze data without VMs or other computation units. We will use only Azure Functions for it. Sounds interesting, then let’s meet from 09:30 and find out how you can do this.
Machine learning for mere mortals with Azure ML (Silviu Niculita)
Machine learning has been leveraged to radically change many industry verticals. The problem is the learning curve has always been very steep. Exotic languages, complex tools, little or no documentation.But innovative cloud-based ML platforms are changing that and democratizing access. During this session, you will learn the basics of machine learning, and you will see a demo of how you can build a prediction model using real-world data, evaluate several different algorithms and modeling strategies, then deploy the finished model as a scalable RESTful API within minutes.
ARM Templates, how to create them, and use them in your CD pipeline (Florin Loghiade)
Azure has an excellent API that permits the user to automate the creation of every complex environment, using one single JSON document. Those documents are called ARM Templates, and they can be used to create, manage and even refresh any type of resource available in Azure. Using ARM templates and PowerShell combined with a CI/CD tool like VSTS, TeamCity, Jenkins, you can automate the build and deployment of the most complex application out there. In this hands-on lab, you will learn about the benefits of using Azure Resource Manager templates, when and how to use PowerShell in the CI/CD pipeline, and what it takes to create ARM Templates.
Here is the meetup link and I hope to see you at the next Global Azure BootCamp!
