dataMinds Connect 2020 - keep learning!

Earlier this week the thirteenth edition of the (virtual) dataMinds Connect conference took place. Traditionally organized as an in-person event, happening in Belgium, they moved to an online delivery for the first time this year.
The event is organized by the people from the dataMinds community and is aimed at bringing together people with a passion for the Microsoft Data platform.

Aside from an amazing closing keynote with Rohan Kumar, our Azure Data CVP, they had an impressive line-up of speakers from the community, companies and also Microsoft, delivering close to 50 hours of live quality content! Great to see was how they organized the content in 8 tracks, catering to people with different interests but also varying skill levels (kudos for the newcomer and expert tracks). Most of the sessions were recorded and will be published online ๐Ÿ™Œ. I have a bit of a sweet spot for AI and machine learning, so that's where I spent most of my time. So looking forward to seeing the recordings come online ๐ŸŽฅ!

As Microsoft, we were a conference partner, and had a virtual booth, delivered through Microsoft Teams. We shared a bunch of learning resources, across our database, analytics and AI products and services. You've likely absorbed a lot of information during the conference.

To make sure you make the most of it, we're providing you with a list of resources to help you develop your skills further.
