Boston University is pleased to host an Azure for Researchers hands on training, Friday, March 25th 2016 in partnership with Microsoft & Wintellect. This free, 1-day class will be offered through two consecutive sessions and is open to neighboring colleges and universities. Seating is limited and on a first-come, first-serve basis so please reserve your seat ASAP.

Registration is now closed! If you are interested in this hands on training please email Cheryl Endicott @cheryle@bu.edu to be added to the waiting list. If a seat should become available, you will be notified via email.

The training is designed to familiarize researchers and data scientists with the services Azure offers to aid them in their research, especially with regard to high-performance computing, big-data analysis, and analyzing data streaming from Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices. Instruction is hands-on, with participants spending most of the day working proctored labs and as a result, participants are strongly encouraged to attend both sessions. Each participant receives an Azure Pass with a $500 Azure credit that can be used well after class is over.

Audience: Faculty, grad students, or anyone interested in big data and cloud-based computing.
Requirements: Bring a laptop that runs Linux, OS X, or Windows with your favorite browser installed.
Prerequisites: An open mind and a desire to learn; no experience with Azure or cloud computing required.
