Developers Conference: Day 1 Presentation Materials

Yesterday was a great day for all IT people from Mauritius, We had the first ever Developers Conference (DevCon) in Mauritius. http://www.devconmru.org/#/

Here is my blog post on the Developers Conference in Mauritius.

This was also a very interesting day for me as I have 2 presentations of 1 hour each, one after the other on Machine Learning and Document Databases respectively.

Since this would be 2 Hour of Azure, I found it natural to start the presentation by giving an Introduction to Microsoft Azure.



Below are all the materials from my presentations:

Hello Azure

In this session, we had a look at the main Azure features and also the components that differentiates Azure from other cloud vendors.




Introduction to Azure Machine Learning

The presentation introduces you to the very very basics of machine learning. It then goes straight to the point: What is available with Azure Machine Learning and how you can use it. If you love Azure or machine learning - this one is for you!
