Azure Data Share is a cloud-based service which helps customers share data with other organizations. It provides centralized management, monitoring and governance for sharing data from multiple Azure data sources. Using this service, you can quickly create shares which consist of multiple data-sets from a variety of Azure data stores. Easily invite your customers and external partners to access these shares through incremental snapshots of your data, revoke access as needed.

Today I came across this site called “Teachable Machine” made by some smart people and built with Tensorflow.js. It lets you build and train simple models on sound, video and images and then you can export your models in various formats to integrate with your own app or system! I have done something similar with Microsoft PowerApps and the AI Builder, but this takes it to a new level.

If you’ve ever tried to create Azure Subscriptions with Terraform, AZ cli or via ARM api you’ll know that it was not possible up until recently. Previously you had to open a different UI to choose a billing model and create a new Subscription (even if it was bound to the same AD Tenant as your existing Subscription). Terraform and AZ work in the context of a Subscription so it was assumed you would have one before you started, however sometimes we need to create these automatically.
