Pune, India, March 30, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Global Azure Boot Camp 2017 is a community driven event supported by Microsoft. On 22nd April 2017 thousands of technology enthusiasts will converge at local events being organized in over 200 locations all over the world. Global Azure Bootcamp 2017 is lined up to be the biggest bootcamp yet – appropriate for the fifth year anniversary. Currently it is estimated that well over 10,000 attendees world-wide will show up for Global Azure 2017.
Fintech Thought Leaders are proud to be organizing the Central Pune event as part of the Global Azure Boot Camp. This event is planned and targeted for practitioners working in the Financial Services space or those aspiring to work in this domain. They plan to have about 50 participants in this event. This will be a half day event, starting in the afternoon with sessions focused on Azure cloud and the challenges faced in the financial services domain. Post the speaker sessions there will be music, drinks, nibbles and light dinner in the evening over a networking session.
The Pune event is unique in that it is focussed on practitioners working in the Financial Services space and the talk session is followed on by a networking event over music dedicated to George Michael.
This is an opportunity to spend an afternoon getting into the nitty gritties of Azure Cloud and later network over good beer, eating good food, listening to good music on an open air terrace on a hot Indian summer evening. The music will be a dedication to George Michael. Speaking about the connect between music and software development, Nilesh Kadam, member of the organizing committee said, “So many of the best minds I have met in computing have a love for music. I believe this is something to do with being able to see beauty in complex numerical systems. George Michael has been an inspiration for me and I wanted to dedicate this evening to him.”
Creating music and software are both collaborative and individualistic undertakings. Musicians are generally technically engaged. The instruments themselves often interface with other devices (amps, mixers, mutes) to achieve different sounds. Composers often deal with an array of technologies to get their music written, performed and produced. Music is an abstract medium - the printed note requires interpretation and execution. Like the written line of code, there is often much more than meets the eye. Guitar players in particular make great programmers. Instrumentalists have to zoom in to work with very repetitive technical details, and so become very focused - like a guitar player practicing a piece of music at a slow speed. But, the best programmers are able to then zoom out and see the big picture, and where their coding fits into the whole project, much like an artist has to step back from a painting and see the whole of it, or an instrumentalist has to produce something that communicates a complete work, not just the scales and technical aspects of it. There are rhythms and cadences of algorithmic flow.
Sponsorship opportunities – This is a community event and sponsors are welcome to reach out to help support this community in organizing the event. This is a great opportunity to connect with Cloud enthusiasts and practitioners and having your logo displayed on what probably is the biggest distributed event in the world. You will be supporting Pune organize the coolest of all the events across the globe.
FinTech Thought Leaders (FTTL) is a community of software practitioners working in the Finance domain. FTTL was formed by individuals from the FinTech space, who felt that there was a need for a platform for practitioners from this industry to get together and share their experiences and talk about the innovative work they are doing. The platform will enable the practitioners in this space understand the common challenges the industry faces, drive innovation and nurture leaders who are willing to think out of the box.
As part of this initiative FinTech Thought Leaders had its maiden event - AgileFest2016 an event where participants got to meet and hear from leading industry practitioners on how software craftsmanship is changing with the adoption of the Agile methodology for faster delivery. There were sessions on Finance, Regulation and software craftsmanship. The event was attended by over 200 participants from over 30 organizations, including Barclays, Citibank, Master Card, Credit Suisse, Mastek, Oracle and a host of small and medium start-ups based in Pune and Mumbai.
The community has over 300 active members besides an executive team of 20 practitioners from the industry. To find out more about FinTech Thought Leaders and about the Pune Global Azure BootCamp please visit www.azure17.com
