Join me tomorrow for my Microsoft Ignite sessionĀ Azure Hold’em DevOps (THR3054) at 13:15 in the OCCC South – Expo Theater #1 (that’s right next to the Microsoft Showcase area and the Expo hall) where I will share five stories on DevOps pains which we encountered whilst working with various customers with offices all across Europe. It will be a blitz-session since it’s full of good information and delivered in only 20 minutes (panic mode ON :-o). Also make sure you add the session to your Session Scheduler and add a reminder to your agenda.

Additionally, I’m happy to announce that during tomorrow’s Ignite keynote I will be seated in the VIP section and, just because of that, I decided to report live the best Azure announcements – so it will be a curated list based on my personal opinions and own thoughts. If you’re interested, make sure you follow me on Twitter or LinkedIn, where I will post all of these.

See you at Microsoft Ignite!

AzureDay 2017 Azure Functions Speaker

I’m just writing this as a follow-up to my ‘How far can serverless actually go?’ session in Kiev, Ukraine at AzureDay 2017. The session starts with a high-level introduction on the importance of serverless and covers in more in-depth Azure Functions right after that. During this particular presentation, I also did a performance test (more like a stress test to be honest) of Azure Functions.

During today’s presentation I got a lot of fabulous feedback and wonderful spot-on questions on Azure Functions and Azure Event Grid. But most importantly, a good number of attendees also asked for the slide deck, so here you go:

Additionally, here’s a kind reminder on my GitHub repo which apparently I start using more and more often nowadays and which also holds part of the demo – I promise, updates are yet to be pushed.

This doesn’t stop here though. On my GitHub repository with demos, I will soon publish a lot more Azure Functions code samples, especially the ones I’ve seen to be little (to nil) documented. Stay tuned!

Have a fabulous weekend – more engagements to come very very soon (next up, Cluj-Napoca, Orlando, Seattle, Warsaw, Seattle again and Mechelen – if you happen to be in any of these cities, ask me for days and I’d be more than happy to schedule a meeting with you!
