The new era of data driven and intelligent applications is here – powered by a robust data platform and a secure cloud infrastructure. The cloud gives us the power to collect and integrate data from an enormous variety of sources, to process big data at amazing scale and economics, to dramatically simplify development and deployment, and offer amazing intelligent APIs and applications as hosted services.

Microsoft’s data platform and Azure data services are packed with tons of features to make apps more customer-friendly, more secure, more performant, more intelligent and most of all – easier to develop! From the security benefits of Dynamic Data Masking, built-in intelligence/analytics, to the performance improvements of in-memory OLTP, Microsoft’s data platform and Azure provides developers with the tools they need to develop modern, smarter and Intelligent applications.

Sound good, right?  Join Microsoft data experts Tobias Ternstrom, Lindsey Allen, and many more at the PASS Summit pre-conference session, Taking A Hands-On Approach to Building Intelligence into Data Driven Applications.  Bring your device to this hands-on session and get a full day of app building and exploring these features in-depth with Microsoft Product Engineering walking you through each step. The data for development immersion program includes 15 labs based on real-life scenarios developers face every day.

At the end of the day you will walk away with sample code and knowledge on how to create your own data-driven intelligence application.
