Workshop at National Institute of Technology Delhi
12th March 2016
Microsoft Innovation Centre (North India)ï¿½organised workshop onï¿½12th March 2016ï¿½atï¿½National Institute of Technology, Institutional Area, Narela, Delhi,ï¿½in association withï¿½Dronacharya College of Engineering.ï¿½This workshop was organised to update the knowledge of students in the field of programming.ï¿½Mr Jagadish Sasala (Microsoft Trainer)andï¿½Nishant Kumar (17096),ï¿½ranked inï¿½top 25ï¿½ofï¿½MEC Referral Challenge from Computer Science and Engineering Department ofï¿½Dronacharya College of Engineering, Gurgaonï¿½coordinated as trainer in the workshop.
This workshop cum training program was on topicï¿½Microsoft Azureï¿½andï¿½IoT.ï¿½During the workshop students were explained about the basics of Azure,ï¿½Internet of Thingsï¿½(IoT) and Machine Learning along with the steps to host the website usingAzure.
Microsoft Azureï¿½is a cloud computing platform and infrastructure created byï¿½Microsoftï¿½for building, deploying, and managing applications and services through a global network of Microsoft - managed datacentres. It provides both PaaS and IaaS services and supports many different programming languages, tools and frameworks, including both Microsoft - specific and third - party software and systems.
The Internet of Things (IoT)ï¿½is the network of physical objects - devices, vehicles, buildings and other items - embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and network connectivity that enables these objects to collect and exchange data. Theï¿½IoTallows objects to be sensed and controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure, creating opportunities for more direct integration of the physical world into computer - based systems, and resulting in improved efficiency, accuracy and economic benefit.
Machine learningï¿½is a subfield of computer science that evolved from the study of pattern recognition and computational learning theory in artificial intelligence.ï¿½Machine learningï¿½as aï¿½"Field of study that gives computers the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed".
Various features of Azure like activating an account onï¿½Azure,ï¿½Azure account subscription using unique key and publish a site on Azure usingï¿½Web Matrixï¿½was explained in details followed byï¿½lab session . Lab sessionï¿½conducted byï¿½Nishantï¿½helped students host Website usingï¿½FTP client serverï¿½and windows explorer followed.
Mr Jagadishï¿½explained students about Raspberry Pie II and running a device remotely. He cited uses ofï¿½Raspberry Pie IIï¿½by citing an example which was related to controlling the switching of a bulb using remote device by anï¿½App. Raspberry Piï¿½is a series of credit card - sized single - board computers developed inï¿½England, United Kingdomï¿½by theï¿½Raspberry Pi Foundationï¿½with the intent to promote the teaching of basic computer science in schools and developing countries.
Nishant Kumar (CSE)ï¿½department got Opportunity to show his skills in teachingï¿½Microsoft Azure and IoTï¿½as trainer atNIT Delhiï¿½which was great learning experience for him.
