Prompt Engineering 101 with Azure OpenAI

Learn basic prompt engineering techniques that help guide Azure OpenAI models to better performance for specific use cases, resulting in models that yield more accurate and relevant output. Learn common patterns and strategies to get the most out of your LLM.

Fine-tuning Azure OpenAI models

Learn what fine-tuning is and isn't in the context of Azure OpenAI. Evaluate alternatives to fine-tuning and the cases when fine-tuning is necessary. The session ends with a demonstration of how to create a training dataset, fine-tune an Azure OpenAI Chat GPT-3.5 model, and consume it.

Terraform in Azure Workshop

Infrastructure as Code (IaC) has become a critical part of DevOps, allowing for declarative definition, configuration, deployment, and management of simple and complex IT solutions. In this session, we’ll review the importance of IaC and how it fits into the Continuous Delivery aspect of DevOps. In addition, you will get hands-on with Terraform with labs and start deploying solutions to the Azure cloud!
