Thesis to the speech
"Developing IoT solution from scratch"
More demos and less slides: you'll get a chance to join a practical demonstration and see how to develop an IoT solution from scratch using Azure services such as IoT Hub, Azure Stream Analytics and Power BI. We will use a prototyping board as a device. Using a field gateway we will connect the device to the cloud in order to collect, analyze and visualize data from different sensors. To wrap up, we'll discuss several projects in production recently implemented using all services from the demo.

Thesis to the speech
"Azure Machine Learning for Data Scientists"
In this presentation we will discuss some new tools and services that are available for Data Scientist. We will start with Azure ML Workbench and show how to use the tool in order to work with your project in a team. After that we will discuss some deployment options using virtual machines and containers. You will be able to see how to use Batch AI and Azure DataBricks services to create and use clusters of VMs to use modern deep learning frameworks for distributed training of your models.
