Azure’s identity and access functionality provides a comprehensive set of controls for managing access to the cloud. In this session, learn how to use conditional access to limit who can sign-in to the Portal, PowerShell, and CLI, use privileged identity management for “Just In Time” owner access, use Managed Service Identity instead of having to create and manage Service Principals by hand, and use Azure AD to sign-in to Virtual Machines so you can stop managing local accounts. Also, get a sneak peek at the feature roadmap for controlling access to Azure resources.
Join us to learn how Honeywell Homes and Building IoT division built their smart thermostat service with Service Fabric. We will show how we took an existing microservices application and migrated the solution to Service Fabric to gain the scalability and agility needed to grow our business. We will cover our migration strategy, how ARM provided consistent deployment and the benefits of using Service Fabric including scale, app deployment and stability.
Video games continue to evolve. Gamers look for (and expect) games to have online functionality with things like leaderboards, cross-device save games, and new content delivered online, while game developers want to implement these features with minimal effort so they can focus on what matters most: the game itself. In this session, we will dive into adding online features to your new (or existing) Unity games using Azure services, as well as new gaming-focused services offered by PlayFab. It’s dangerous to go alone, so join us!
Containers and microservices are great. But managing VM, storage or networking for them is hard. The upcoming roadmap from Service Fabric includes a fully-managed microservices platform that will enable you to easily build, deploy and manage applications without having to worry about infrastructure. In this session, we will share a sneak peak of the capability and show how you can easily deploy complex applications and let the service take care of all the plumbing.
Learn all the possibilities Microsoft is availing to help secure IoT deployments worldwide from technological innovations to ecosystems enablement. Many companies report security as their biggest stumbling block to realizing their digital transformations with IoT technology. In addition to a secure cloud, securing IoT requires collaborative alignment between various industry players like operational technology providers, IoT operators, and application developers. Creating this alignment can be daunting to any one company. As an application developer, the last thing you want is a cool app that ends up in a perpetual POC. In this session, you will learn about IoT security technology offerings from Microsoft and various activities by Microsoft to remove security roadblocks to IoT success.
How about getting a close look into the new Azure Sphere solution by the team that developed it? This session will give you a unique introduction to the new Microsoft solution for creating highly-secured, Internet-connected microcontroller (MCU) devices. Not only will you learn about the hardware OS, and cloud service that make up Azure Sphere, but you will also learn how to develop Azure Sphere applications with Visual Studio and how to connect devices to Azure services.
Come join us to experience how migrating to Azure Database for MySQL/PostgreSQL service using Azure Database Migration Service is simple and easy.
The App Center team has been hard at work bringing even more value to your beta app distribution workflow.

Microsoft Azure has achieved massive, global scale, with 40 announced regions consisting of over 150 datacenters, and it is growing fast. It delivers the promise of cloud computing, including high-availability, extreme performance, and security, by custom designing software and hardware to work best together. Mark takes you on a tour of Azure’s datacenter architecture and implementation innovations, describing everything from Azure’s reliable clean-energy datacenter designs, to how we are using FPGAs to accelerate networking and machine learning, to how we design storage servers to deliver ultra-low latency and high throughput, and more.
Serverless lets you focus on coding and testing instead of provisioning infrastructure, configuring web servers, debugging your configuration, managing security settings, and all the drudgery normally associated with getting an app up and running. In this session, you’ll discover how to migrate an API of an existing app to Azure Functions. You’ll learn how to use Visual Studio Code and the Azure Functions extension to speed up your work. After this session, you’ll join the ranks of serverless developers.
