SolidarityConf, the most supportive technological event

We are going through very difficult times and there are many people who need us to bring out our most caring side. From here comes SolidarityConf, an annual technological event that was born at a difficult time to demonstrate that thinking about others is a small gesture that can mean a lot.

The 2021 edition will be held on 15 April (from 15:00 to 21:00 CEST) and it will be online. This year, the collection of tickets will go, entirely, to the Spanish Federation of Food Banks (FESBAL). Donations range from 5 to 20 euros, and you decide how much you want to contribute to this cause. Just sign up for the event and enjoy the talks, as well as helping those who need it most.

Unai Zorrilla, Luis Fraile and Luis Ruiz Pavón have been in charge of organizing such a beautiful initiative, in addition to seeking a formative value with sessions so interesting that they will address very varied topics: Power BI, .Net, Power Virtual Agents, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence…


15:00 - 15:15 : FESBAL Introduction

The Spanish Federation of Food Banks has been chosen as the non-profit association that will receive the funds raised this year. In addition, they will be in charge of opening the event.

15:15 - 16:05: How to discover the value of data with Power BI?

In the session we will see how to connect from Power BI to a data set with demographic and economic indicators. Thanks to the power of Power query, we will see how to extract useful attributes for analysis and create the right tabular model to create the story that data converted into information counts. Graphic functionalities and advanced analytics integrated in Power BI will be the key instrument for its realization.

16:10 - 17:00 : Acelera el desarrollo de aplicaciones Serverless con .Net Core en AWS con MiddyNet

In this talk we will see how we can minimize our code and deliver value earlier thanks to MiddyNet, an OpenSource library developed by ourselves.

What you will learn in this session:

  • How a serverless application is developed in AWS.
  • How to access other services beyond Lambda
  • How to use MiddyNet to minimize the code needed to access those services.

17:05 - 17:55 : Extending Virtual Power Agents with Skills - everything you need to know

Power Virtual Agents is the key to bringing bot development closer to the Power User character. However, there is one gem that only the best can unlock: the hidden levels. The availability of black boxes developed in Azure as skills ensure that your character can face any situation and that your chatbot can reach any level.

18:00 - 18:50 : More data! It’s War!

When you handle a few million records, things are relatively easy. However, one day you realize that you have to face not dozens, but many hundreds or even more than a billion records, and everything you had learned so far is not worth.

During this trip we have discovered tools like Spark, Databricks, Data lake, we have squeezed Sql to get the best, and above all, we have lived many tests and errors.

Speakers: Sergio León  y Sergio Navarro Pino

They are developers. NET at AnalyticAlways, where they build a stock management product. Always eager to learn and share.

18:55 - 19:45 : Dall-E: Can machines be creative?

In this session, we will talk about one of the latest models of Artificial Intelligence released by OpenAI, Dall-E. Dall-E is able to generate images from text. In this meeting we will talk about which models are used and we will see some of the examples that allow us to create different images combining unrelated concepts. Would you be able to create a sardine-shaped wallet? Difficult, isn’t it? If you want to see what Dall-E would do, you can’t miss this session!
