Meet Microsoft at Lambda World


Meet the Microsoft Azure Team, a Lambda World Gold Sponsor

As you might know, Lambda World is a non-profit event focused on bringing together community and providing a space to learn, share ideas, and network with like-minded individuals in a fun and safe environment. This type of conference could not be possible without the support of our sponsors.

Microsoft is a true Open Source player and huge supporter of knowledge sharing, conferences, and the community. Azure is the cloud for any app and every developer! They will show why Microsoft Azure provides excellent opportunities to rapidly develop systems without having to worry about many of the infrastructural issues that developers might be used to, at the cost of giving up soome level of control over managing those systems directly. In Azure, you can create funcitons in the language you choose, such as F#, C#, and JavaScript.

Why not drop by the Microsoft booth to have a chat, and discover all of the opportunities that Azure can offer you as a developer? They’ll give you first-hand experience on serverless tools in Azure, and show just how fast a developer can create rich applications at cloud-scale.

You can learn more about how to build apps faster with a serverless architecture here.

You can also catch presentations on C#7, F#, and Azure from the Microsoft team:

On Thursday, October 26th from 17:00 - 19:00, you’ll be able to attend a workshop from Alejandro Campos Magencio entitled, The Fast & the Functional: C#7 and learn about C#7, the latest version of the multi-paradigm programming language packed full of functional goodness.

Then, on Friday, check out a talk from Ruth Yakubu entitled Build a Homeland Security Serverless app in 30 minutes with Azure Functions in F# and Logic Apps where she will show you how to use Functional with Logic Apps and Azure Cognitive Services to analyze facial recognition from a video stream - an HttP triggered function to alert the police whenever a criminal’s face is detected.

We’re ever so thankful for the support of Microsoft. Make sure you visit check out Functions from Microsoft Azure.

If you haven’t bought your tickets to Lambda World yet, we’re sorry! We are completely SOLD OUT! But, stay tuned after the conference as we’ll be posting videos of all the presentations at the Lambda World YouTube channel.
