Microsoft has become the largest open source-friendly company in the world, with over 20,000 developers using and contributing to open source projects on GitHub. Engineers at Microsoft develop in the open on GitHub together with tools like Azure DevOps and Visual Studio Code every day to harness the best of both communities.Learn how one such team, the .NET Compiler Platform team (“Roslyn”), uses GitHub and Azure DevOps in concert to design, code, refine, test, and build production open source software at scale, and how you can do the same.
Learn about the latest Azure services and innovation designed to build modern and secure Internet of Things applications. We will discuss the IoT reference architecture and will describe how Azure offers a collection of services designed to address IoT scenarios from collecting and modelling to analyzing data from IoT devices. We will highlight the latest updates and announcements for Azure IoT Hub and devices connectivity as well as dive into the intricacy of IoT data analytics with Time Series Insights and Azure Maps, as well as describe how you can secure an IoT application end-to-end.
From accounting to retail, from healthcare to legal, industries and businesses have specific ways they need to interpret their data in order to unlock value. Come learn how to apply knowledge to your specific business scenarios, domain or industry with custom skills on Azure Search. We'll show how to create custom skills using tools like Azure Functions and Containers and connect them to intelligent knowledge mining processes. Real examples included.
Scenarios that require real-time insights to drive key decisions continue to grow rapidly. Many instances require running some of these analytics close to the data at the edge, and large-scale analytics in the cloud. This session will demonstrate how customers can create these streaming pipelines in minutes by leveraging IoT Hub and Event Hubs (including Kafka client) for massive scale data ingestion; Stream Analytics for real-time analytics; Azure SQL for stream augmentation and data archiving; Power BI for dashboarding & Azure Databricks for downstream batch processing. Downer group of Australia will showcase how they address scenarios such as remote monitoring and predictive maintenance with Azure Stream Analytics.
The presentation introduces the journey that we have faced and challenged in adopting widely distributed software systems and Microservices-based architectures in our project. Firstly, we focus on how a full-blown service mesh solution fixes perfectly into our hard use cases in the real world Microservices project. Secondly, we show you how can we resolve interesting challenges such as connect, secure, control and observe services with Istio on the powerful Azure cloud platform with a fully managed Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS). Lastly, we give you a practical understandable demo which puts it all together, to sum up, what we did.
Power BI and Azure Analysis Services enable you to build comprehensive, enterprise-scale analytic solutions that deliver actionable insights. This session will discuss the vision for enterprise BI on the Microsoft platform. We will dive into the new and upcoming modeling features such as aggregations for big data which enables interactive analysis over petabyte-scale datasets, incremental refresh for faster refreshes, composite models to combine Import and DirectQuery, XMLA Endpoints for connectivity and programmability, and tooling for complex models. Learn how to build enterprise-grade semantic models that are reused throughout enterprise organizations.
Mark Russinovich is the CTO of Microsoft Azure and Vitalik Buterin is the creator of the Ethereum Blockchain. In this free-form Q&A session hosted by Azure Blockchain's Marc Mercuri, we'll talk about blockchain past, current and future - from smart contract devops to popular OSS projects to trusted execution environments and Ethereum 2.0.
Fastify is a popular Node.js framework for building web applications, designed to be fast. It's open source and released on GitHub. Fastify has adopted Azure Pipelines for their Continuous Integration, which makes it easier for the project to run tests on each Pull Request, and simplifies the life of the (busy!) maintainers. In this brief live session, Damian will interview Matteo Collina, maintainer of Fastify and core developer of Node.js, about his experience on using Azure Pipelines for an open source project on GitHub.
Users should not have to struggle with passwords, and neither should IT. We'll walk you through how to implement WebAuthn—a new web standard—in your existing applications. By doing so, you'll be able to enable passwordless options such as FIDO and Windows Hello. If your applications use Azure Active Directory or Microsoft account versus a custom authentication layer, we'll also teach you how to enable passwordless technology so your users have a seamless identity flow.
Whether you are looking to build your 1st or 50th serverless app, this session will cover 6 important things you need to know that can make all the difference. From best practices, to tips, to gotchas, and more. Come join this action packed and fun live session as we cover the dos and don’ts of Azure Functions and serverless. And don’t worry, one of those things is not “there are still servers in serverless.”
