Welcome to Global Azure Bootcamp! All around the world, user groups and communities want to learn about Azure and Cloud Computing.
On April 21, 2018, tech communities world-wide will come together once again in the sixth great Global Azure Bootcamp event!
In Dublin, we are organising the biggest community lead event yet, with two tracks and in-depth workshops during the day. Bootcamps are happening on the same day all over the world - come to Dublin and join in - please share your experience under the social hashtag #GlobalAzure!
It is important to point out, that while this event is *about* Azure, it is *not* a commercial event. Azure bootcamp Dublin is organised by the local MVP tech commmunity - we are here to share our knowledge, not sell anything.
The majority of the speakers at this years event are Microsoft 'Most Valued Professionals' (MVP) - experts in technology that Microsoft has recognised as community leaders outstanding in their field. You can find out more at the MVP Award Website.
The bootcamp has two main tracks (Infrastructure/Security and Compute/General), and some really fasinating parallel hands-on workshops. We also have live "lab training" thanks to Jonathan in Opsgility, and short Lightning talks from some very interesting folk just after lunch. Speaking of lunch - you won't go hungry! ... Microsoft are very kindly providing not only the premises for the event, but will also be feeding us for the day. The event location is the shiny new Microsoft offices in Sandyford ... seemingly one of the best new tech spaces in Dublin, so worth coming to have a nose around!
So! ... please join us to learn, ask questions and talk to new friends you just havn't met yet :)
The future of technology
The aim of the talk/demo is to inspire and encourage developers to explore Azure. It will include a discussion and review of Azure’s currently available offerings, and will be followed by a case study of an Azure .NET application. The talk will also feature a demonstration of how to use Windows PowerShell to manage Azure storage from the command line.
Azure Event Grid is a set of connected technologies provided by Microsoft as part of their Azure cloud which are designed to facilitate an event-driven architecture. CQRS is an application design pattern (or architecture) that differes from single model architectures (like MVC or MVVM) in that the parts of the system responsible for changing the state of the system (the Command side) is entirely separate to the parts of the system responsible for getting the state of the system (the Query side). Event Sourcing is a data architecture that flips the way we store data on its head. Instead of storing the state of any given object as it currently is and updating that state we instead store the complete history of every change that has occurred to the object and allows us to derive the state of the object by running code known as a projection over that event history. In this presentation I will demonstrate what these are and how you can use these three together to build a distributed system.
Application containers have grown significantly in popularity over the last few years, and Kubernetes has emerged as a favorite container orchestration system. It simplifies the deployment, scaling, and operations of application containers and is well supported by a large community of users. This session will help you better understand Containers/kubernetes on Azure with demo and best practices.
Everyone has heard horror stories about migrating SQL Server workloads into the cloud and then storage performance tanking with huge user complaints. Come along and learn how Azure storage really works from a SQL perspective and how you can “game” the rules and various throttling mechanisms on the cloud to make your SQL workloads fly along.
This session is an in-depth, hands-on look at the different ways we can look at the cloud security stack. Paul will examine how we can detect an attack, view it across a number of attack vectors, understand the attack process and critically, stop the attack chain!
Find out what's new in the world of Azure monitoring. In this session, you'll learn about the new monitoring features of Azure along with tips and tricks on putting them to good use to help you achieve comprehensive monitoring of your private and public cloud environments. Session Take-Aways:
How the e-commerce company Jet runs thousands of micro-services and machines across several datacenters, with 24x7 operational support, providing everything from user facing product search to inventory management to delivery box packing optimizations all on Azure. We have stories to share. We’ll cover:
The future of technology
Does it matter how we build an app as long as it works? Well, if we're using the cloud for hosting, maybe even microservices, some of the new "web scale" databases, rely on third-party services, there are few things to keep in mind to avoid 2AM app-is-down phonecall! Let's explore some patterns, practices and technologies and see how we can make our apps work faster, more resilient and reliable!
Niall will take you through Microsoft’s strategy on Blockchain including some practical examples of where it is being used as well as demonstrate how to setup a dev/test and production environment to deliver a blockchain solution. Niall will also talk about some new technology that will allow Microsoft provide a platform for building enterprise grade blockchain solutions.
The aim of the talk is to show developers how to leap from only working with software, to diving into the fascinating world of Internet of Things. In this session Allen will talk about many things: the engineers urge to scratch an itch, systems analysis, reverse engineering, decomposition, making leaps (big ones and small ones), but most importantly, lessons learned, and his adventures in learning to how to build a robot!. The session will give insight to engineers on the world of IoT, and a crash course in everything needed to build a robot. The talk will discuss the role of the Azure IoT Suite, and will bring you into the worlds of mechanics, coding, electronics, A.I. and even a bit of psychology.
Want to learn more about what Microsoft AI has to offer? Stop in for a whistle-stop tour of Microsoft’s cognitive services that you can use to infuse intelligence into your apps, what’s not to like :)
Cloud adoption is creating new business opportunities across the IT sector. In this talk, we’ll focus on the opportunity for Managed Service Providers to grow their business by developing a practice migrating existing workloads to the Cloud, and managing those workloads in the Cloud. We’ll start by discussing the business opportunity, including Microsoft incentive programs and ways you can differentiate your offerings and create additional business value. We’ll also look at the technical process of implementing a Cloud migration project, starting from migration assessment, and looking at both lift-and-shift migration to Azure infrastructure services as well as application modernization to Azure platform services.
Dynamics 365 - Not just a CRM platform! Learn how Dynamics 365 can be used to quickly customize and deploy applications without any code. Joe will also cover scenarios where coding maybe required and who to integrate Dynamcis with other Azure services.
Showcasing all the things that are possible on Azure. Some will make you go – duh. Some will make you go – wow. And some will make you go – why would you ever want to do that.
The future of technology
Imagine you could just write code and have it run without needing to worry about VMs, containers or any other infrastructure. Then imagine that it automatically scaled to any size to match demand, but you only paid for exactly what you used. Now imagine connecting a database that could handle graph data, key-value storage, schemaless documents and SQL queries with blazing perfomance at massive scale across the globe while still only paying for the storage used and throughput needed. Well, let's give it a try and see what happens ...
Do you know how to build a chatbot or a voice interface? Cortana, Alexa or Google? Facebook Messenger or Slack bot? How about all of the above and more? In this workshop, you'll learn how to build a single conversational interface in C# and the .NET Web API framework that works across all chat and voice channels from Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Microsoft Cortana, Slack, Facebook Messenger, SMS, and many others. First, you'll explore the overall landscape and conversational flow design concepts. Next, you'll dive into intents and intent handling. Finally, you'll discover advanced debugging techniques using Remote Debugger. When you're finished you'll not only have a clear understanding of how you can deploy bots across multiple voice and chat channels, but you'll also have a functional bot prototype that you can continue to grow and evolve.
