Recording of Azure Oxford talk on combatting illegal fishing with Azure (for less than £10/month)

by Carmel Eve

ICYMI: The recording of the talk Jess and I gave at Azure Oxford in February is now available!

This talk focuses on our recent project with OceanMind, where we built a serverless architecture which allowed them to process vast amounts of data in close to real time. This analysis provides them with the insight they need in order to power their machine learning models and detect illegal fishing!

In this talk we ran through how to construct a cloud-first architecture based on serverless and data analytics technologies. We then explored the important principles and challenges in designing this kind of solution. Finally, we saw how the architecture we designed through this process not only provides all the benefits of the cloud (reliability, scalability, security), but because of the pay-as-you-go compute model, has a compute cost of less than £10 per month!

If you want to know more about the process involved, check out this blog post.
