In this session, I will take the audience on how to setup a basic but fully functional build and release pipeline on Azure DevOps with Github for Power Platform

Microsoft Power Platform is more than the sum of its parts. When connected to Azure and hundreds of other apps, Microsoft Power Platform enables you to quickly deliver value and clear your app backlog. We will explore the different app services including Function App, Logic App, and Web App to see how big the arms of Power Platform and Azure App services are to accommodate the features we want.

Preserving privacy when processing data from multiple sources with machine learning is always a challenge. Organizations may want to perform collaborative data analytics while guaranteeing the privacy of their individual datasets. Combining multiple data sources to support a better algorithmic outcome improves accuracy of prediction, but it may come at cost of confidentiality, if sensitive information is not accurately protected. Azure Confidential Computing adds new data security capabilities to the Cloud and specifically to machine learning processing. By using trusted execution environments (TEE) to protect your data while in use, with confidential computing, you can use machine learning algorithms across different organizations to better train models, without revealing the processed data. This session presents the benefits of confidential computing in a Machine Learning solution, where different financial institutes share their confidential datasets for data analysis and credit risk prediction using the ML.NET library, and still mask any sensitive information to protect the privacy of their customers, preventing any potential data leakage.

Shakir Khan will discuss the Power Virtual Agent and its presence within Power Platform. Then demonstrate a real world example by creating 'Power Virtual Agent' from scratch and deploying in MS Teams.

Education is widely misunderstood. Even training is often side-lined in projects. In this session Gill Walker will take questions from anyone involved in the education side of a Azure or Dynamics or similar LOB (line of business) software project. If you are involved in designing, planning or delivering education or training, come to this session to ask and learn.


We will create a full-stack application using Blazor WebAssembly with the help of EF Core database first approach.
