Hang On! Preparing for the Global Azure Bootcamp 2018

In less than a week, on the 21st April, the Global Azure Bootcamp will start. This year there will be 286 locations around the world that will host this event, and Malta will once again be one of those locations! The event in Malta will be held at the Microsoft Innovation Centre, at Skyparks, Luqa, and is being organised by Tech-Spark. Start time is 9am! It’s been months in the making, and presentations are being given that last touch, to be ready for D-Day!

We have prepared five presentations for the event:

  • IoT Fundamentals, by Clive Ciappara (myself)
  • Machine Learning, by Matthew Grech
  • Blockchain, by Johan Zammit
  • SQL Server & GDPR, by Ralph Attard
  • Elastic Pools by Evan Camilleri.
