Microsoft Azure is a general, open, and flexible global cloud platform supporting any language, tool, or framework – including Linux, Java, Python, and other non-Microsoft technologies.  The program will cover a variety of "hands-on labs" with programming examples predominantly in Python and Java.   No prior experience of Microsoft Azure is required.  The only prerequisite is basic programming experience in some language.  This one-day course is presented by specialized trainers and is geared towards research faculty, post-doctoral researchers, postgraduate students and lab engineers.

Please forward this invitation to your research colleagues and friends, who are welcome to attend.
