The Vision AI DevKit (https://aka.ms/iotshow/visionaidevkit) is a smart camera device powered by Azure IoT Edge. Equiped with a camera and microphones, it allows developing proof of concept (or even actual) projects implementing advanced image and sound analytics directly on the device.In a previous episode (https://aka.ms/iotshow/185), Mahesh Yadav showed us the unboxing and first time experience with the device.

In this new episode, Mahesh is back to show us how you can train and deploy new AI models on the device in a matter of minutes.

The Microsoft Cloud Adoption Framework for Azure guides customers through their cloud journey, to use and adopt cloud services with confidence and in control. In this episode, Scott Bockheim explores the guidance and documentation of the framework with Lara Rubbelke to provide an overview of all the components and elements included.

With the Common Language Runtime (CLR) hosted in Microsoft SQL Server (aka CLR integration), you can author stored procedures, triggers, user-defined functions, user-defined types, and user-defined aggregates in managed code.

The CLR is also available in Azure SQL Database Managed Instance.

In this video, Anna Hoffman and Colin Murphy go over what CLR is, how to set it up in Azure SQL Database Managed Instance, and simple example of Regular Expressions in Azure SQL Database Managed Instance.

In this episode of the Azure Government video series, Steve Michelotti talks with Chris Pendleton, Principal PM Manager on the Azure Maps team, about Azure Maps in Azure Government.
