Building Cloud-based applications with Microsoft Azure – Day 3
See Day 1 of this workshop for overview.
Day 3 – Intelligence and Analytics
Session 1: Azure Stream Analytics
Learn how to use Azure Stream Analytics to extract information from high-velocity data streams originating from IoT devices and other data sources. Then use what you learned to build a real-time dashboard for Stream Analytics output.
Session 2: Microsoft Cognitive Services
Learn about the 24 APIs available in Microsoft Cognitive Services for building intelligent apps. Then use the Computer Vision API to automatically caption photos uploaded to a Web site and generate search metadata from the objects in the photos.
Session 3: Azure Machine Learning
Learn how to use Azure Machine Learning to build sophisticated machine-learning models that perform optical character recognition, fraud detection, image classification, and more, and how to deploy models to the cloud as REST services. Then build a model that uses a public dataset to perform optical character recognition, deploy it to the cloud, and write a character-recognition apps that uses the model.
Session 4: Azure DevOps
Learn about the role of Azure in DevOps and how to use it to streamline your software-development processes.
