Posted: April 21, 2022  |  Categories: Azure

We are thrilled to be back doing a presential event on our Azure User Group Portugal! It has been so long! And even happier to be in Porto City.

Azure User Group Portugal is a user group for anyone interested in Cloud Computing with a great focus on Microsoft Azure. If you work with or have an interest in the Microsoft Cloud this is the user group to attend and follow our events. Join our group to keep posted about all the new meetings. Looking forward to having you as a member.

In this April 2022 edition, we will be having two distinguished speakers: Laurent Bugnion (Principal Cloud Developer Advocate at Microsoft) and Henk Boelman (Cloud Advocate at Microsoft) in two sessions about:

  • Event-driven apps in Azure
    Using Azure, it is easier than ever to build event-driven web applications, for example using Azure Functions and the Azure SignalR service. Laurent Bugnion, a Cloud Advocate for Microsoft, will show you how he implemented such a solution to solve a real-world problem. This presentation will dive into a production application called Timekeeper, that Microsoft uses to run some of its live TV shows such as the Hello World daily show. More information about Timekeeper is at
  • Making sense of unstructured data with AI
    Do you have a lot of data in unreadable formats such as PDFs, images, and audio files and want the ability to extract this rich information, analyze it, and act on it? In this session, you’ll learn how to combine a set of Cognitive Services like Azure Cognitive Search to make sense of this data in a short amount of time. We’ll discuss AI concepts, like the ingest-enrich-explore pattern, skillsets, leveraging cognitive services, knowledge bases, and connecting all these elements together to build an intelligent search experience into an application.

Event Details and Agenda

The event will start at 6:30 PM (GMT) at the headquarters of DevScope at Rua de Passos Manuel, 223 – 4º Floor – 4000-385 Porto, Portugal.
