Get ready for the Augusta Cloud user group! Do you work with IT infrastructure, databases, data analytics, IoT, or develop apps? Join us to learn how you can use the cloud to benefit any project that you’re working on.

The goal of Augusta Cloud is to introduce you to the various cloud technologies that are offered in Microsoft Azure. From an IT professional perspective, this can range from Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS), and more.

If you’re into big data and databases, there’s Azure SQL, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Cosmos DB, and other data warehouse capabilities at your fingertips. You can tie all of that in with Machine Learning, Analytics, Data Lake stores, and more.

On the developer side, there are tons of different APIs, Bot Services, and Cognitive Services that you can use to fuel any size projects. From the Bing Web Search API, Face API, Computer Vision API, and more, you can create an intelligent app that harnesses the cloud.

What is the cloud? We will kick off Augusta Cloud on December 7th. RSVP here!

Have you seen the terms IaaS, PaaS, or SaaS? What is this cloud thing? Can my app use the cloud? Join the first monthly meetup of Augusta Cloud, where we’ll introduce cloud concepts, and dive into one of the biggest cloud platforms: Microsoft Azure.

What are Cloud Infrastructure Services?

Have you heard on-premises solutions are a thing of the past? Come and learn about Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solutions and how you can design and configure Virtual Machines, Storage, and identity in Microsoft Azure.

What are Cloud AI and Cognitive Services?

Have you ever wanted to make your own Chat bot? How can we obtain data, and detect and analyze faces from photos? We can do all of this and more using the AI and Cognitive Services APIs that are available through Microsoft Azure. Join us for an overview of these services and how you can get started using them today.

Located in a historic 1802 Schoolhouse, our space is divided into two wings. One for learning and prototyping, and one for coworking and business incubation. Our membership comes from a wide variety of backgrounds that all consider themselves some measure of hacker, maker, and doer. I am an architect. We have entrepreneurs, business people, teachers, engineers, designers, artists, and Jacks and Jill’s of all trades, and of course many software and hardware developers.
