See an extremely polished end-to-end demo scenario unfold, related to idea generation, qualification, selection, development, and evaluation. Learn how all the components in the demo are built, what patterns are used to implement them, and have a lot of fun along the way. This session also has a little bit of March Madness flavor baked into it which will provide an entertaining and enlightening experience.
