The session will start with an overview of SharePoint Custom Forms, which can be developed by Angular JS. We’ll review how to build repeating table information stored into parent/child SharePoint lists. You’ll watch a demo of custom dashboards using REST APIs to display data from multiple SharePoint lists, plus walkthroughs of real-world situations for SharePoint Apps and PowerApps.
It’s a New Year, and a new (or continuing!) resolution for many government agencies is to finally (and fully!) take advantage of cloud computing. But the same old problems persist: Where to start? How to start? And who can help?
With those challenges in mind, Microsoft and AIS kicked off 2018 with a solid #Azure Meetup speaker lineup of cloud and industry experts to help figure out where to begin and what valuable training resources are available. They also provided insight on some government use cases and best practices for cloud onboarding success.
Last night’s speakers included:
Guy Cavallo, Deputy CIO, Small Business Administration
Brian Harrison, Cloud Solution Architect, Microsoft
Bernarldo “Bernie” Ellis, Senior Program Manager, Azure Government, Microsoft
Vishwas will showcase a PowerApps application that is essentially a “portal” for existing Line of Business Enterprise Applications (inventory, contracts, etc.) and Services (Dynamics, O365, DropBox, etc.) Through the use of PowerApps features like the out-of-the-box connectors, integration with Flow and mobile enablement, you’ll learn how easy it is to build an app that allows users to have all the information they need in one location and on the device of their choice.
For the last few years, I have enjoyed participating in HOUR OF CODE – a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries. In 2017, 154,012 Hour Of Code events were registered worldwide.
To show how much fun (and useful) coding is, I wanted the kids to build something real, vs. simply making their favorite character walk left or right. I decided to use the MIT App Inventor tool for my Hour of Code sessions. App Inventor is a browser-based tool that allows you to build your own apps. We built a simple Android app to help parents reduce distractions while driving. Even though the app is super simple, the results are cool enough for kids to proudly show the app to their parents.
Here is a 10-minute video of the steps we followed to build and test the app: Read More…
While cloud is fast becoming the “new normal” for government, agencies are still challenged with the daunting task of IT modernization and developing a cohesive cloud migration strategy. Oftentimes, what’s holding back progress is that there simply isn’t a one-size-fits-all cloud playbook. That, combined with agency culture, hinders many agencies from making the move to cloud.
The November #AzureGov Meetup this week brought in both a packed house and a great lineup of government and industry experts who shared their best practices on critical components for cloud success, including: stakeholder engagement, evaluation, planning, implementation, outcomes…and the cultural changes you need to ensure a smooth transition.
We also celebrated the two year anniversary of the #AzureGov Meetup!
On the inaugural episode, Vishwas and Andrew discussed data breaches, what can be done about them, and how to mitigate the problems in a constructive way. The webinar was recorded (link provided below), so take a listen to hear the fascinating perspectives from two industry experts on data breaches. They explored what “common” and “not-so-common” data exploitation attacks (active breaches and passive breaches) look like, how best to prevent such attacks, and the exposure companies can face when these breaches do happen.
The demo included in this video was part of our Ignite talk on cloud innovation with Azure Government. We use CNTK for an image detection problem: Identifying objects within the refrigerator. Image detection is a harder class of problem than image classification, as image detection goes beyond classification to include localization of object(s) within an image. This is the reason for dropping down into the deep learning library. (Earlier in this presentation, Steve Michelotti showed the use of Cognitive API for image classification.)
In a nutshell, we took the Marvel Universe Social Database and loaded it in Azure Cosmos DB as a graph database. Then we built a simple web page that invoked Gremlin queries against Cosmos DB.
The key theme of this demo is the ease with which you can create a globally distributed database that can support low latency queries against the Marvel Universe graph database. In the context of AzureGov (as shown below), we can seamlessly replicate the data across the three AzureGov regions by clicking on these regions within the Azure portal.
