Upcoming TRINUG Events:

Advanced Git Tips and Tricks

Wednesday, April 24, 2019 6:00:00 PM ( Add to calendar... )



2501 Blue Ridge Road Raleigh NC

Registration and event details...

In the previous two meetups at Vaco, we discussed beginner-level Git topics. Now it's time to look inside the machine, and see how all this really works. Our guest speaker, Thomas Wiest, will cover advanced Git topics such as "How to write Git plugins" and "Git internals demystified." Git can be intimidating upon first learning. The goal of this meetup is to give attendees advanced tips and tricks to maximize their Git efficiency as well demystify how Git works internally.

Global Azure Bootcamp

Insight Digital Innovation

5440 Wade Park Blvd Raleigh nc

Registration and event details...

We have been running a RTP location of Global Azure Bootcamp ever since it started. This year we decided to get back to the roots of a bootcamp by doing a day-long lab. That's right - all day, boots on the ground, hands on the keyboard. Less Blah Blah Blah. More code. The primary lab will be led by Keith Wood from Insight Digital Innovation and will focus on chatbots. You'll learn how to build chatbots and how to use technologies including Cognitive Services / LUIS (Language Understanding Intelligent Service, Azure Search, Azure Bot Service, Microsoft Bot Framework, QnA Maker, and Bing Search API. You'll get an overview of bots and AI in the morning, followed by lab-style exercises where you'll build your own intelligent bots and supporting services with the help of experts. There are plans for a Machine Learning lab also - stay tuned for that. ******Important****** Since this is hands-on day, you will need to have a laptop with Visual Studio Code installed and a subscription to Azure. Although we can't help you with the laptop, we can help you with an Azure subscription and installing visual studio code if you don't have one.

Thanks to Syncfusion for sponsoring lunch.
