2w ago
Last night at Boston Azure I teamed up with Jason Haley to cover the current Azure AI topics from the Microsoft-created Season of Azure program. An engaged group showed up at NERD in Cambridge to hear all about it. Jason Haley’s code and materials are here: https://jasonhaley.com/2024/06/25/boston-azure-june-2024/ For my part, I pulled content from Generative AI for .NET Developers and Getting Started with Azure AI Studio and blended in some of my own. The combined mega-deck is attached to this post, though the deck spans much more than I had time to go through. If you attended and have not ha ..read more

My talk description: According to legend, programmers back in the stone age would write code without IntelliSense and refactoring tools. The next generation of developers will wonder how our generation got anything done without AI-powered assistants. If you don’t know what GitHub Copilot is all about then come on by to get a glimpse of the future. In this fast-paced demo-heavy talk we will see how you can go faster, stay in flow, and maybe even do more (unit tests anyone?) with GitHub Copilot, which became commercially available during 2023. Along the way we’ll learn to talk like an AI nerd b ..read more

(I gave two talks at this event – the other one was on GitHub Copilot.) Always great to engage with the OG Code Camp crew at Boston Code Camp. My talk description: Haven’t heard about DORA yet? You will. The annual DevOps Research and Assessment Report — affectionately known as the “DORA Report” — is a data-driven, research-backed set of practices and metrics that will make engineers happier and more productive while improving not just dev, ops, and security outcomes, but also business outcomes. DORA tends to also shine a light on practices that are common within teams that are measurably mor ..read more

Talk: Using GitHub Copilot to Code Azure (Boston Azure edition of Global Azure Bootcamp)
Coding Out Loud

13-May-2023 Veronika Kolesnikova, Jason Haley, and myself jointly hosted the Boston Azure edition of Global Azure Bootcamp. It was a sold out show – excellent turnout (around 50 participants). I presented a couple of segments, one of which was to inspire use of AI tools. For that I gave a demo of GitHub Copilot, explained how to use the free trial, and was there to support the occasional questions by new users of GitHub Copilot during the bootcamp. The opening talk was also AI: My talks were later – GitHub Copilot the rolled into hacking on Azure for the rest of the day. And of course, those ..read more

I wrote some code demonstrating how to use Azure OpenAI to support the AI mini-workshop we ran for Virtual Boston Azure. I created versions in Python and C#. This weekend I create a web front-end for it and deployed as an Azure Static Web App with an Azure Function supporting the refactored C# logic to execute the Azure OpenAI service calls. The new app is running here: https://hello-ai.doingazure.com You can find the source code here: https://github.com/codingoutloud/hello-ai ..read more

Talk: Orlando Code Camp – Meet GitHub Copilot

24-Feb-2024 Had a great time hanging out with the Orlando tech community at their annual Code Camp. I made the trip with Maura (she gave a talk on blockchain) and we met a lot of cool people and had a great time. I spoke on GitHub Copilot. Much of my talk was demo and discussion – you have to see this in action (or use it) to appreciate what’s happening. I consider this a glimpse into the future – it will surely become then norm to have an AI assistant when programming. One part of the demo showed using one AI (GitHub Copilot) to help program another AI (Azure OpenAI). It is invigorating to en ..read more

On 27-June-2023 at our first back-from-the-pandemic in-person regularly scheduled Boston Azure monthly meeting, the main event featured Juan Pablo Garcia Gonzalez from Microsoft talking about Azure OpenAI ChatGPT Prompt Engineering for Developers. Juan Pablo was kind enough to share his slides and code samples. Keeping with the AI theme, I opened with a talk about GitHub Copilot where I gave a brief demo and explanation, then attempted to put it into context among other AI tools (including other Microsoft Copilot initiatives). The deck I used is attached to this post: bostonazure-copilotlightn ..read more

Talk: Running #Azure Securely and Compliantly – Granite State Code Camp #GSCC2021 – aka Compliance for Lazy People

Today I had the opportunity to speak at the Granite State Code Camp (#GSCC2021) in Manchester, NH. This was the first time I’ve given an in-person talk since the start of COVID and it was great to see so many smiling facing (even when partially obscured by a mask!). Last year my focus was a more in-the-weeds talk called Running Azure Securely – which of these Azure security features are for me?. This year I stepped back a level and focused on Compliance. In the session I discussed security vs. compliance, the shared responsibility model, and touched on a few other features, but spent ..read more
