Virtual in a day

Note: Much of these workshops will cover presentations via slides using content using pages and demonstrations of topics and subject matter. All audience types and levels are welcome with their interest to view these portions of the workshop.

However, other parts of these workshops will involve working first hand on the technical software, services and tools such as using Powershell, system + software tools and browser controls in Azure cloud. These portions does assume a degree of technical familiarity and ease to follow printed /guided instructions, especially on Azure cloud and Powershell. To operate these tools, delegates will require a modern browser, such as Chrome, Edge(latest), Firefox, Opera or Safari, which has been recently updated.
