Wow! No, seriously! WOW! Had the conference not been a good one, this post would have been written either during the event or long after the event.
During these two days I had the opportunity of joining great session given by Microsoft professionals who work in both IT departments and R&D departments. Just to name a few, among the session I had the opportunity to attend are: SQL Server 2014 In-Memory OLTP Query Processing, NoSQL on Azure, Intelligent System Service – the bridge and heart of IoT, Managing Technical Debt, SQL Server for Developers, Using WinJS for web and cross-platform application, Build Your Custom Private Cloud Management Portal with Windows Azure Pack. Unfortunately though, I didn’t get a chance to attend the rest of super-cool sessions the rest of the speakers gave.
On the other hand, I also had the opportunity of offering an Elastic Scale session to a full room (people even decided to even stand just the get all the intel). Should you have missed Microsoft Summit or the session I gave, scrolling a bit down you’ll get a chance the go through the my slides. Also, I highly suggest to be patient and wait for the video recordings to be published on the conference’s website here: http://www.mssummit.ro/en/videos.
Here’s a photo I took a few minutes before the session started:
After the event I was also invited to give a short talk about BizSpark and our partnership with Microsoft on Ziarul Financiar Live. The recording of this interview is available here: http://www.zf.ro/business-hi-tech/video-zf-live-special-romania-nevoie-start-up-uri-industria-it-c-sustina-dezvoltarea-urmariti-inregistrarea-emisiunii-alex-mang-ceo-keyticket-solutions-petru-jucovschi-microsoft-romania-13549279.
In just a few days (14, by the time of this writing), the second edition of Microsoft Summit will take place. For this year’s event, Microsoft put together an agenda for both IT specialists (network & infrastructure experts along with software developers) and business managers and the list of speakers is simply, well… staggering!
If you didn’t get a chance to register for the event yet, consider this your opportunity to win one of the two tickets I’m offering for free to you, my loyal followers and readers. The net worth of these two tickets is 1398 RON (little over $400,00) and it’s now your chance to get on the them completely free (meals included!).
Simply answer these three questions by either commenting to this post or by sending a private message via the Contact form:
- What options does one have for scaling his/her SQL database?
- What does database sharding mean?
- What is my Microsoft Summit session’s title?
P.S.: If you don’t know the answers, it’s your chance to learn more about DB sharding techniques via elastic scaling out during my session at Microsoft Summit, ‘Patterns for SQL Database Elasticity’ 🙂
If you attended my session yesterday on ‘Patterns For Scalability In Microsoft Azure Application’ @ CodeCamp 2014 Iasi, thank you! Again, sorry for the extremely late start: like I mentioned yesterday, Java developers talking about concurrency and threading are obviously not aware what the current time is. But yet again, they’re so cute when they get excited talking about concurrency and asynchronous methods 🙂
However, if you didn’t make it to the session, here’s you chace to get a glance on the content I presented.
The CodeCamp organizers will also post all the presentations at some point and I suppose they will post the video recordings as well.
Iasi, Palace of Culture
Iasi (RO) is not only one of the most beautiful cities I’ve ever visited so far (and trust me, I did visit a few), but also the city to host CodeCamp 2014 tomorrow.
As mentioned on the conference’s website, CodeCamp is a local IT conference, […] aiming for better communication among the IT people. Over 1000 people are expected to show up. If you happen to be one of them, I’d be more than happy to be your host during my session @ CodeCamp, starting at 16:30.
If you didn’t register yet, I’m sorry to let you know that the conference is sold out for quite some time now. However, if you do decide you want to participate, I have a feeling that they’re not going to kick you out anyway, so it’s still worth a shot. Especially considering the high quality agenda the organizers and speakers (me included) have prepared for tomorrow :).
See you there!
If you happen to be in Novi Sad tomorrow (or today, depending on your time zone), do drop by at the Coding Serbia international developer conference. I also happen to have a session at the conference starting at 11.00, about Patterns for Scalable Microsoft Azure Applications.
See you there!
On October 9th I’ll speak at the Coding Serbia conference in Novi Sad about Design Patterns For Scalable Microsoft Azure Cloud Applications. The session starts at 11:00 AM.
See you there!
I’m currently getting my agenda ready for //build and I can hardly wait the keynotes. After going through the agenda, I found some very interesting sessions:
