Azure Journey – Walk the walk
Azure is innovating and pioneering information technology, impacting the way we buy, build and use IT services. Is cloud a philosophy, a giant somebody’s computer or an innovation hub? How should we start our journey to the new, innovative and fast-changing universe of the cloud using Cloud Framework, Governance to Migration? Let’s talk!

A look at the Azure I&AM landscape and what protocols and technologies are appropriate for different use cases.
Modernise whilst moving solutions to Azure
This session is going to look at an example infrastructure solution and the approaches you can take to modernising it when moving to Azure. We will take a quick look at what the equivalent will be when leveraging IaaS in Azure, followed by a preferred scenario of leveraging PaaS in Azure. To wrap up we will take a glance into some of the operational services available to build a complete solution. You will then go and follow a lab to build out the solution just covered. Note: We will be doing this via the portal with no automation – The following session with Daniel will look into how you leverage ARM to streamline your infrastructure deployments.
|12:45 PM - 1:45 PM||
Lunch, Labs and Ask an Expert
|1:45 PM - 3:00 PM||
Azure Functions - Bindings and Authentication
In this session we take a look at some of the bindings available to you and how you might go about creating your own custom bindings using the binding extensibility framework. We'll then have a go at putting together a simple SPA application that includes authenticating to back end functions via Azure Active Directory and serving up content using the Azure Function SignalR and CosmosDb trigger bindings.
Using Azure Resource Manager Templates to supercharge your Azure Deployments
Whether you’re a Developer building applications or an IT Pro building virtual data centres in Azure, at some point you're going to want to use modern Configuration Management practices to build those services. Azure Resource Manager Templates are the powerful declarative Infrastructure as Code system that is baked in to Azure. In this session we'll take a look at what Azure Resource Manager templates are, how to create and edit them and what tricks, tips and tools are available to you to help you become a Configuration Management master in Azure.
|3:00 PM - 3:15 PM||
Afternoon tea - interspersed with lab.
|3:15 PM - 4:30 PM||
Exploring Azure Integration Services
On a connected world access to up to date information is critical. With distributed systems, where parts of the information is mastered in different systems, integration plays a critical role in making sure that every system have the correct data at the correct time. But how can you navigate the maze of Integration Services? In this session Wagner Silveira (Azure MVP) will explain who is who on the Azure world when it comes to integration - from API Management to Service Bus, passing through Logic Apps, Event Grid and Functions, they will show you what those services are, how can you use and when you should use it, following by some hands on exercises.
9 ways to completely mess up Security of your Azure Platform
A common misconception is that moving to the cloud means your data and your platform is completely secure. DON’T Worry, it is not.
