Microsoft is offering a free, hands-on, cloud computing training workshop for higher education institutions in Finland. Whether it’s image recognition, computing in Linux, machine learning with GPUs, or analyzing data streaming from devices for an IoT project, you can see how easy it is using Microsoft Azure cloud platform to help you deliver bigger, better and more reproducible research.

You will be able to access Microsoft Azure on you own computer during the training. You do not need to have the Microsoft Windows operating system installed on your laptop, as Microsoft Azure is accessed via Internet browser, Linux/Mac/Windows command-line and programming language APIs.

This course is for faculty, researchers, IT specialists supporting research and post-graduate students using any language, framework, or platform.
