Global Azure Bootcamp returns to Portugal on April, 16

Global-Bootcamp-2016-Lisboa

The story about GlobalAzure Bootcamp is quite unique because it’s not just a Microsoft owned event but rather a cluster event with more than one hundred individual and independent community events that occur simultaneously on the same day each year, performing a one-day deep dive class to help thousands of people get up to speed on developing Cloud Computing Applications for Windows Azure. In addition to this great learning opportunity the hands-on labs will feature pooling a huge global compute farm to perform research for charity!

This year on April 16, once again and for the third consecutive year, this event will be held in Portugal and DevScope is proud that once again got invited to lead some sessions. Our two speakers are: Rui Quintino [Data Platform MVP] and Sandro Pereira [Azure MVP].

Azure Embedded Analytics with new Power BI Embedded Preview

In this session Quintino will talk about the new Azure Power BI Embedded Preview – Do you need  advanced analytics and state of art data visualization module for your apps? Seamless app integration including custom security/authentication? Easy to use dashboard authoring tool?  No upfront development costs? You can now leverage the Power of Power BI in your applications with Power BI Embedded Azure offering. In this session we’ll briefly review the amazing Power BI cloud platform, ISV & extensibility opportunities, and drill down on how to configure, use and operate Power BI Embedded.

The “Apps” World: Logic, API & Power

In this session Sandro will address what’s new in Azure App Services? And what is PowerApps? This session will show you new integration features available on Logic Apps and API Apps (for example the new Logic App Designer, Azure Functions and many more). How can we start using these new features that are still in preview, how you can use Azure Logic Apps to automate business processes without using code. And finally an introduction to PowerApps (still in private preview), what are they? And where we can use them?

Go for it and get one of the free seats for Global Azure Bootcamp 2016 – Lisboa! They are limited! The event will take place next April 16 at Microsoft Portugal (Rua do Fogo de Santelmo Lote 2.07.02) between 9.00 AM and 6.00 PM.

See you in Lisbon.
