Microsoft Ignite 2020

This week (in fact, today) we are starting Microsoft Ignite, our biggest conference of the year. It is the first time that we have to run the event online, which of course is a bit sad (last year's event in Orlando was amazing, so many people...) but in the other hand it's also the chance for everyone to see the event LIVE and to ask questions from the experts in real time. We'll have 3 days of content non stop (yes literally 24/7) around the globe. Exciting!

I'll be doing a lot of moderation and Q&A behind the scenes so if you see me in the chat, be sure to say hi. But even better I'll also have two "on-stage" appearances, so mark your calendars and add me to your schedule or your backpack.

Migrating an ASP.NET web application to Azure App Service

Migrating an ASP.NET web application to Azure App Service

Date / Time: September 23, 2020 at 2PM CEST

Azure App Services offer a wide range of platforms, functionalities, and utilities around your web application. In this session, we will see how an ASP.NET web application can be migrated from a local environment to Azure with the help of our tools and processes. We will also talk about the configuration of the App Service, such as improving security, automatically scaling and more.

During this 15 minutes interstitial program, I will join Seth Juarez and Christina Warren to talk about ways to migrate ASP.NET applications to Azure App Service, advantages, tools etc. We will also see a demo migrating an old ASP.NET WebForms app (.NET 3.5) to Azure App Service with almost no changes, and how to improve the configuration by using Azure Key Vault for the secrets (such as a configuration string).

Note that there is no repeat for this short session, but it will be recorded.

Exploring core concepts in Azure Data

Microsoft Learn Workshops are designed to be interactive and hands on. For the most immersive experience we recommend the prerequisites suggested in the module link provided below but are not required to join. To ensure everyone attending has the best involvement, these sessions have limited capacity. But don't worry, they are being recorded and will be available on demand.

Join us for this guided online Microsoft Learn workshop:

This 75 minutes workshop will take place 3 times, and this is the 3rd repeat. Join me to go through a series of Microsoft Learn Module and slides teaching you the fundamentals of data on Azure. This is great for beginners!! We will talk about relational databases (such as Azure SQL Database, Azure SQL Database Managed Instance), semi-structured databases such as CosmosDB, big data and more.

Note that you need to register for this event! Places are limited.

I am really looking forward to this event, and hopefully I will reach out to a lot of you.

Stay safe!
