Event description

Description

Join Tallan's Vice President of Cloud Technologies, Dan Fluet, for this Azure AppDev Hackfest hosted at the Microsoft Technology Center in Times Square!

This two-day training and Hackfest is meant for IT professionals, developers and anyone interested in expanding their knowledge, skills, and confidence in the AppDev space. We'll offer FOUR challenges to choose from, and divide you into teams of two or three (if you are coming with your colleagues, we'll ensure you are together) to compete.

These challenges are intentionally open-ended, the goal for this event is increased Azure awareness and education, creativity and teamwork, and to allow our guests the chance to learn and develop using the technology most relevant to them.

Challenge Options:

  1. PaaS Challenge – Build a PaaS solution on Azure.
  2. IaaS Challenge – Build a compliant architecture in order to gain experience provisioning VMs, creating virtual networks and subnets, creating NSG, etc. Extra points for scripting and automation!
  3. Cognitive Services Challenge – Try Cognitive Services on Azure, we’ve found this choice to be very popular among HackFest teams!
  4. Data Challenge – This could be any Data Service in Azure! For example, HDInsight, SQL Database, Cosmos DB, Power BI, Azure SQL Data warehouse, etc.

We'll provide everything you need (INCLUDING BREAKFAST AND LUNCH) to get you started. We're talking educational content, hands-on training, and expert support while hacking away.

Did we mention what we'll be "grading" you on? Judgement criteria are as follows:

  • A large number of Azure services in use
  • Automation/scripting built into their final solution
  • A solid final presentation showing tasks that were accomplished

Don't miss this opportunity to learn and grow with Tallan!

Registrations from competitive organizations will be declined. Please provide a business card at check-in to be granted access.
