After months of preparing, the Global Azure Bootcamp in Malta came to an end! We had lots of fun, our audience was great, and very receptive with lots of questions which we were eager to answer. This year we started with some music, getting the audience in the mood, an idea proposed by Mary from Microsoft, who always gives a helping hand with our events.
Then the event kicked off! First with the IoT Fundamentals session which I delivered myself, talking about the IoT features available in Azure, followed by a live demo using the MxChip. Next up was Evan Camilleri, delivering a great presentation about Elastic Pools on how to scale multiple SQL databases. Johan Zammit amazed the crowd with Blockchain giving a demo with Etherium, whilst Matthew Grech impressed the audience with Machine Learning even showing deployment models. Ralph Attard wrapped up the day showing his remarkable skills in SQL Server, even updating us on GDPR.
Next up are some photos from the event..
I would like to thank our audience for spending a day with us, our speakers, our sponsors – Microsoft and RevDeBug – and last but not least, the Tech-Spark team – Joseph Cauchi, Paul Aquilina, Johan Zammit, and Ralph Attard. We spend lots of hours from our free time organising these events. But it’s always worth it, seeing our IT Community grow in Malta.
So what’s next you might ask?
We were already working on our next event, before the Global Azure Bootcamp. It will happen in two weeks time, on Tuesday, the 8th of May and will focus on how to quickly build, deploy and scale apps, running on any platform. It will be a very interesting event, and will be delivered by Oliver Gomersall and Sergio Vana, who are two Microsoft Specialists.

The Global Azure Bootcamp will be back next year! In the mean time, we’ll see you at our upcoming events. Thank You! – CC
