Researchers around the world are using Microsoft Azure to accelerate their research. Microsoft Azure provides an open, flexible, global platform that supports multiple programming languages, tools, and frameworks, all of which empower researchers to achieve faster results, explore with greater freedom, and remove many of the limitations that are characteristic of on-premises infrastructure platforms. Join us to experience first-hand how easy it is to use Loome, a self-service platform specifically created for researchers to deploy powerful resources on Microsoft Azure in just minutes.
This workshop is strictly limited to 20 participants
Who should attend: Anyone interested in learning how to access and use powerful on-demand resources to run analyses, modelling and visualisation.
Skills or knowledge attendees should have: Some familiarity with data analytics tools in Linux, some genomics experience would also be useful but not required.
Do attendees need to install any special software to participate in the workshop: No, everything will be provided on Microsoft Azure as part of the workshop.
Pre workshop preparation: Information will be sent to attendees a few days before the workshop. Attendees will need to follow some quick instructions to prepare their online environment for the workshop.
