Please be welcome to Global Azure Bootcamp, an event happening all around the world on April 27th, sponsored by Microsoft Azure. This Azure Bootcamp is the 2019 Hong Kong event, organised by C&R (, a local AI startup. We will be running an deep dive workshop for AI developers and enthusiasts, focused on building and deploying IoT devices using Azure IoT Hub. This is for the benefit of everyone in Hong Kong who is inclined to come. Come share with our experts! We will have a meet-and-greet session with pizza. Get in early, grab a slice, and hear about real use cases in Azure IoT Hub from the implementers! Light refreshments will served throughout!

Our venue for this Bootcamp will be the recently inaugurated offices of theDesk in Admiralty. Come and see Hong Kong's first AI smart office co-working space. Feel free to book a tour with the front desk for before or after the Bootcamp.
