I will be speaking at the NICCONF in Olso, Norway, running 21 Jan to 2 Feb. It’s a big and very well run event, which I was happy to present at last year.
I have two sessions:
Forget Virtual Machines – Use Azure Service Fabric For New LOB Apps
This is on Thursday 1st at 10:00 am and puts me right outside my usual comfort zone of IaaS. The subject is PaaS, but hold on IT pros, it’s all based on IaaS which has to be deployed, configured, secured, and monitored. I’ve found Service Fabric to be very interesting because it brings together so many IaaS pieces to create a cool platform for application deployment.
This session, aimed at IT pros (not developers) is an introduction to Service Fabric. I’ll explain what each of the features does, how they can be practically used, and why IT pros should strongly consider using the developer side of Azure for future deployments.
EDIT (Jan 29, 2018): I have built a cool demo environment with Visual Studio (!) and Azure Service Fabric, showing off a “Ticketmaster” that can scale when the likes of Ed Sheeran starts selling tickets, instead of hanging for two hours.
On Thursday at 13:20, I return to my comfort zone and discuss monitoring your Azure deployment.
In this session I will explain how you can use the various management features of Azure to monitor and alert on the performance & health of your infrastructure deployment in Microsoft Azure.
EDIT (Jan 29, 2018): I have lots of things to show in a demo environment.
Hopefully I’ll see some of you in Oslo in the new year!
Would You Like To Learn More About Azure?
If you found this information useful, then imagine what 2 days of training might mean to you. I’m delivering a 2-day course in Amsterdam on April 19-20, teaching newbies and experienced Azure admins about Azure Infrastructure. There’ll be lots of in-depth information, covering the foundations, best practices, troubleshooting, and advanced configurations. You can learn more here.
