Event-driven architecture in Azure! Carl and Richard talk to Dan Rosanova about Azure Event Grid, built to power event-driven and serverless apps in Azure. Dan talks about how Event Grid picks up where WebHooks leave off, providing simpler connectivity between a variety of event streams and routing to different event consumers. The conversation also digs into the broader concepts of event-driven architecture, using queuing and subscription patterns to build loose-coupled, highly scalable and reliable applications. This is architecture perfect for the cloud!

As many of you know, I have had a regular column in MSDN Magazine on UWP development for the past 18 months. However, today I am excited to announce that the column will now shift focus to Data Science, AI, and Machine Learning.  This is a natural progression, given the direction of FranksWorld.com and the Data Driven podcast.

I’m even more excited to announce that the new column, called “Artificially Intelligent” is now available as of the October issue, which is online now.

Here’s a sample:

Over the last 10 years, the focus of many developer and IT organizations was the capture and storage of Big Data. During that time, the notion of what a “large” database size was grew in orders of magnitude from terabytes to petabytes. Now, in 2017, the rush is on to find insights, trends and predictions of the future based on the information buried in these large data stores. Combined with recent advancements in AI research, cloud-based analytics tools and ML algorithms, these large data stores can not only be mined, but monetized.

Matthew Henderson does a demo for Scott Hanselman to show how simple it can be to build serverless apps that leverage bindings for Microsoft Graph (e.g., reading data from a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet in a OneDrive folder) to avoid writing laborious initialization and authentication code, all using Azure Functions.

Not too long ago, Data Science was only for the elite few with a rare combination of skills including advanced knowledge of statistics.

In the last few years, there has enormous progress is making data science accessible to all. This talk from Techorama 2017, Jan Mulkens and Kimberly Hermans explore Microsoft’s solutions to ensure democratization of data science and the possible dangers that lurk below the surface.
