AppDev Advocate Team Lead 🥑 @Microsoft

Toronto, Canada

💬 On 2021 I joined Microsoft as Senior Cloud Advocate 🥑. Before this I was a Microsoft MVP for 14 years, since 2008. The past 4 years I was awarded in the Artificial Intelligence category.

🌱 Previous to Microsoft, I was leading the Innovation Team for Avanade Canada, which means I spent much part of my time trying to figure our the best way to connect real Business with cool technologies, and engage my colleagues to perform smart and fun activities like participate in hackathons, coordinate hackathons and Innovation Contests, support tech meetings, and more!

🤖 Bruno also like to hack new technologies, play the guitar and run. Run a lot, which suddenly started after becoming the dad of the 2 best sons ever.

En 2021 comenc'e a trabajar como Sr. Cloud Advocate en Microsoft. antes fuí reconicido como Microsoft MVP de Microsoft durante 14 años en diferentes categorías como Intelligencia Artificial, DevOps y Windows Developer.

Sessions

Generative AI Workshop - Hands on Lab en

Join us for a beginner-friendly workshop where you’ll learn to generate AI content using OpenAI LLMs. Get hands-on experience with the workshop repository and discover how to create a variety of AI content. No prior AI or coding experience required, but familiarity with GitHub.

Introduction to Azure AI Studio en

Microsoft Azure offers multiple services that enable developers to build amazing AI-powered solutions. Azure AI Studio (preview) brings these services together in a single unified experience for AI development on the Azure cloud platform.

During this session we will review:

- Core features and capabilities of Azure AI Studio
- Using Azure AI Studio to provision and manage an Azure AI resource
- Using Azure AI Studio to create and manage an AI project

Intro to Semantic Kernel en

In this session we will learn the basis of Semantic Kernel and see how we can start working with Semantic Kernel in either C# or Python.
During the session we will review how to:

- Configure your local machine to run Semantic Kernel
- Run AI prompts from the kernel
- Make AI prompts dynamic with variables
- Create a simple AI agent
- Automatically combine functions together with planners
- Store and retrieve memory with embeddings

Diversity is more, much more! Living in tech as a Latino who can’t dance en

I was born and raised in Argentina, then I lived +11 years in Spain and +3 years ago I moved to Canada. During the past 15 years I was an outsider, and this also impacted my professional life. I was lucky enough to travel for 5 years working in Europe, and I learned a lot on how my latino background impacted my professional career.
This session is mostly sharing what I’ve learned during these past years. How I learned to get the most from sentences like “You have a very strong accent; I don’t think you will fit this meeting. These are Senior Executives” or “Wow, your accent is amazing, our leadership team will love it!”. In both scenarios, I manage to move from frustration or surprise to a let’s focus on our business.
And it’s not only about language and accent; family, culture and even food and drinks are a part of the story. Espero que nos veamos en la sesion!

How GitHub CoPilot 🤖 is helping me with code and docs at Microsoft en

GitHub Copilot works with a broad set of frameworks and languages. Currently Copilot supports Python, JavaScript, TypeScript, Ruby, Java, and Go. However, I also used it with other languages like C++ and C#; and even while I'm writing documentation with MarkDown.

I'm always in charge. Cycling through Copilot suggestions and manually editing the suggested code is an amazing flow. What I really like is that GitHub Copilot adapts to my own code style.

During this session, we will review how Copilot works with Python, C++, C# and Markdown. And also, how I'm getting help while I'm learning new languages like JavaScript or TypeScript 😁.

The cosmic power of Azure Cosmos DB and Azure IoT telemetry to feed itty bitty wildlife 🐿️ en

Winter is here and my backyard squirrels friends still come every day to get some food, snow is not a problem for them.

In this session we will review the basic concepts of Azure IoT and we will create a simple animal detector. When an animal is detected, the device will feed them. The solution will send telemetry to Azure IoT and store the information in Cosmos DB without writing a line of code.

We'll share a few implementation options, so you can get some fun ideas and walk away with a plan to start creating your own masterpiece.

🚁 Let's code a drone using Azure OpenAI Services en

In this session, we will explore the power of Azure OpenAI Services and GPT models by integrating them with a drone. Using these services, we will (try to) control the device intuitively using natural language. With GPT models' ability to answer follow-up questions, admit mistakes, challenge incorrect premises, and reject inappropriate requests, the possibilities for intuitive and seamless interaction with technology are endless.

With ChatGPT's ability to answer follow-up questions, admit mistakes, challenge incorrect premises, and reject inappropriate requests, the possibilities for intuitive and seamless interaction with technology are endless.

But that's not all - during the session, you'll get to witness live coding that will enable you to control the drone using language commands. And the best part? ChatGPT will be generating the code based on your own words! You can ask the drone to "fly to the end of the room" or "find an empty chair", and ChatGPT will generate the code to make it happen.

🤖 Copilot Time! Let's build a PlugIn for ChatGPT, BingChat and other Copilots en es

In this workshop, we will create a plugin for ChatGPT from scratch. We will see examples in different programming languages such as Javascript, .NET, or Python. We will also explore the architecture that supports a plugin and how this model can be used for other platforms like BingChat or Microsoft 365 Copilot.

Bonus: we will use GitHub Codespaces so we won't need a local dev environment!

🤖 ¡Es hora de Copilot! Vamos a construir un plugin para ChatGPT, BingChat y otros Copilots. en es

En esta sesion, crearemos un complemento para ChatGPT desde cero. Veremos ejemplos en diferentes lenguajes de programación como Javascript, .NET o Python. También exploraremos la arquitectura que respalda un complemento y cómo este modelo puede ser utilizado en otras plataformas como BingChat o Microsoft 365 Copilot.

Bono: ¡utilizaremos GitHub Codespaces para que no necesitemos un entorno de desarrollo local!
