πŸ’¬ Introduction to the topics

Talk #1 "Getting started with Azure Cognitive Services"

Wouldn't it be great if we could have our applications see, hear, speak, understand and interpret the needs of our users? We'll do just that in this session "Getting started with Azure Cognitive Services".

Azure Cognitive Services are APIs, SDKs, and services available to help us build intelligent applications with little to no AI or data science knowledge. They enable adding cognitive features into our applications. The goal of this session is to help you create applications that can see, hear, speak, understand, and even begin to reason. We'll take a look at the five main pillars: Vision, Speech, Language, Web Search and Decision.

Next to the awesome things we can do with Cognitive Services, security of course is also very important to take into account. So for those of you concerned about confidential data going into those services there's going to be an extra special example at the end of the session... πŸ€“

Talk #2 "Building resilient and production ready serverless solutions on Azure"

Serverless applications seem the perfect fit for a scenario where developers do not need operations anymore because there are no servers right? Well maybe it's better to say we have to think about servers less... Even if we don't have to think about servers there is still an operations perspective of running serverless applications in production. What if something fails, a dependency is unavailable or how do we upgrade to new versions of our application?
In this session Marc and Geert will talk you through all the aspects of building a serverless solution on Azure that is resilient to failures and are ready for production workloads. Topics we will cover contain resilient serverless architecture & coding, versioning, continuous delivery, testing, logging & alerting. The session will be packed with demos of how to do this in your solution.
