Enabling Your organization to be Accountable in the Cloud
Increasingly organisations are looking at where they can introduce Microsoft Azure into their environment. Let’s take a look at some of the tools and products that can used in the conjunction with your on-premises environment. In this session, I will talk about how you can use Windows Admin Centre, Azure Hybrid Benefits, Azure Arc, Azure Update Management and beyond to introduce Azure into your environment.
Serverless?! Is it part of the “doing more with less” trend? The Azure Serverless services contain multiple very powerful tools like Azure Function and Azure Logic Apps. In a series of short demos, we will understand how Azure serverless services can help to answer those questions: – How to add functionality to an existing process without changing the code? – How to lower the cost of some recurring tasks easily? – Create quickly new flow without code We will have a glimpse to the code/ flow, see the pros and cons for each scenario.
Traditionally, when building SPA applications, it feels a lot like we are looking at the moon. On the light side, we have the shiny and pretty UI, which everyone knows and loves. However, on the dark side, there is the complicated server-side logic behind the scenes we need to manage. Luckily, there has been much progress towards making our lives as developers a bit easier. This is done by allowing us to concentrate on writing code, instead of causing us headaches from all aspects around hosting, deployment, and management. In this demo-rich session, we are going to build a real-time stock monitoring system using a serverless React App backed by the power of various Azure features. You will learn how to process documents from Azure Cosmos DB Change Feed, and then broadcast this newly received data to our client, all by using out-of-the-box Azure Functions bindings for Cosmos DB and SignalR
Working with Azure data services it is nearly impossible to ignore Azure AD; we can use it simply for logging in to specific services like Azure SQL or Azure Data Lake, but also for setting up OAuth token authentication for a service like Databricks. Unfortunately, most of the time we notice bumping into Azure AD when things aren’t working as expected. Therefore, we need to understand the essentials about Azure AD, identities, authentication and authorization.
In this sessions, we will start from what you need to know about Azure AD in relation to Azure data services. Then we will look at different scenarios of setting up authentication in general. Lastly, we will move through the landscape of Azure data services and see how Azure AD can be leveraged for each of these services, highlighting both similarities and differences in the entire landscape.
We all like speed and want our models to run FASTER! This is where PIP INSTALL TORCH-TB-PROFILER comes in.

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are the new buzzwords in the industry. Microsoft’s vision is to make AI accessible to every enterprise, data scientist, developer, information worker, consumer, and device everywhere in the world. AI has a big role to play in the enterprise space. The field of AI is progressing at a rapid pace. Without understanding the concepts behind these advanced technologies, developers and administrators will struggle to evaluate the potential impact of new tools and solutions. In this session, we will break down the concepts behind existing technologies, outline various tools available today, and discuss the direction of AI and ML for Developers. We will cover how developers, Power Users, and Information workers can take advantage of Microsoft’s AI and Cognitive Services offerings to build real-life enterprise solutions. You will learn: 1) Overview of Microsoft AI Platform 2) What are the cognitive services? 3) What tools are available today? 4) How to use Cognitive Services to implement real-life business solutions?
By introducing Azure Synapse Analytics, Microsoft created a whole new perspective when it comes to data treatment. Some core concepts, such as traditional data warehousing, came under more scrutiny, while various fresh approaches started to pop up after data nerds became aware of the new capabilities that Synapse brought to the table. Not that Synapse made a strong impact on data ingestion, transformation, and storage options only – it also offered a whole new set of possibilities for data serving and visualization! During the session, we will try to explore how Power BI works in synergy with the new platform. What options we, Power BI developers, have when working with Synapse? In which data analytics scenarios, Synapse will play on the edge, helping you to achieve the (im)possible? When would you want to take advantage of the innovative solutions within Synapse, and when would you be better sticking with more conventional approaches? What are the best practices when using Power BI – Synapse combo, and which parameters should you evaluate before making a final decision on which path to take. Once we’re done, I believe that you should get a better understanding of the “pros” and “cons” for each of the available options when it comes to integration between Power BI and Synapse.
Jonah Andersson shares her past experience and important lessons learned about migrating and developing old .NET applications to the Azure cloud. Find out how that project turn into a fiasco not because of Azure but of other factors. Never make the same mistakes.
My life is a hilarious roller coaster of miss-intended programming bugs because at 120 cm tall and 50 kilograms I completely fall off your radar. Why did my scale call me! Why does facial recognition see me as a child? These are all valid questions I often ask myself as I navigate my weird and different world. Have you heard the phrase “You have to be this tall for Micro-services”? well what about: “You have to be this tall to operate a mobile phone?”. I am finding it harder and harder to reach any button except for “#” and “9”. Building accessibility into the planning stages of programming can eliminate barriers for participation and create an inclusive environment for people with disabilities. Programming for diversity serves as an unquestionable indicator that your software embraces the diversity of your users and cares about their safety and comfort. Join me on a fascinating and thought-provoking look at how you can program for accessibility.
To master any technology, you need to understand the foundation of how it works on the back-end first. In this session; We will explore Azure Cosmos DB’s infrastructure.

Office 365 usage is increasing hugely. With an increase in usage day by day, it increases the challenges to monitoring the Office 365 environment for its usage. There are various products, tools, and ways available to monitor the user and admin activities in Office 365. In this session, we will explore Azure Sentinel to monitor the Office 365 environment for its usage and detect possible risks.
The Azure cloud platform has more than 200 products and cloud services. To utilise the full potential of Azure, we often use various cloud services in conjunction and seldom is it easy to establish and keep track of all those connections and relationships. “Infrastructure as Code” to the rescue! Like the principle that the same source code generates the same binary, an IaC model generates the same environment every time it is applied. This facilitates easier understanding and maintenance of Infrastructure for both developers and DevOps teams. Terraform is an open-source infrastructure as code software tool that enables you to safely and predictably create, change, and improve infrastructure. In this session, we will be going over the basics of Infrastructure as Code, Terraform and get hands-on experience in using Terraform with Azure.

If you have any device or source that generates values over time (also a log from a service), you want to determine if in a time frame, the time series is correct or you can detect some anomalies. What can you do as a developer (not a Data Scientist) with .NET o Azure? Let’s see how in this session.
Transient connectivity errors are a fact of life in cloud application, not a remote probability. Events like hardware or software failures, reconfigurations or planned maintenance need to be considered and addressed by implementing proper retry logic in your codebase. Historically speaking, there were multiple 3rd party libraries available to simplify this task for cloud developers, but they required to change existing applications in order to achieve that end goal. Starting from v3.0 of Microsoft.Data.SqlClient drivers, we’re introducing Configurable Retry Logic within our client driver portfolio, and the ability to enable default retry logic policies for new and existing application by adding some settings in app configuration files, without the need for changing your application code. In this session, we will present this new feature and all the options developers have to significantly improve the resiliency of their cloud applications.
Azure Function is an event driven, compute-on-demand experience that extends the existing Azure application platform with capabilities to implement code triggered by events occurring in Azure or third party service as well as on-premises systems. It is referred to as “serverless” and is the ultimate abstraction of concerns like scale, elasticity and resiliency that empowers the developer to focus on one thing: code. The functions and blobs are charged based on usage and you don’t have to worry about how app is load-balanced. On other hand, Angular is one of the most popular platform for building mobile and desktop web applications. In this demo and session you’ll be able to learn how to create a completely functional Angular app with absolutely no provisioning of servers.
This session will discuss how you can innovate faster in any cloud environment – for that matter, can help accelerate digital innovation whether you are a small startup or a large enterprise.
Running Operations is not an easy job, especially these days. Ops teams have to ensure excellent user experiences, resolve incidents quickly and help developers stay productive. Yet at the same time, there is also the need to maintain systems security and keep downtime to a minimum - goals which many struggle with at scale. While advances in cloud computing have helped address some of these challenges, many organizations find it difficult to leverage the cloud at scale because of bottlenecks that form around repetitive tasks, such as developers having to wait for provisioning infrastructure. Despite having access to abundant cloud resources, these speedbumps often make it difficult or impossible to achieve team objectives. Join this talk to learn: • How to safely delegate the management of your Azure deployment (to developers and other colleagues) with self-service operations. • How to create powerful runbooks with guardrails that leverage existing scripting languages, infrastructure, and tools to remove the human from the bottleneck that forms around repetitive tasks. • Strategies for getting started • And how to create an Easy Button to handle the repetitive tasks that are interrupting your flow of work.
Modern web development often involves creating clients with business logic which orchestrate and access various services. These full-stack or static web apps have a different set of hosting requirements, and don’t necessitate full web servers or containers in many situations. Enter Azure Static Web Apps. With Azure Static Web Apps you can quickly deploy these apps to the cloud using GitHub. Join Christopher as he shows not only how to deploy your app, but how you can add server-side code with Azure Functions, incorporate a database, and take advantage of other built-in features.

This offering allows customers to seamlessly extend or completely migrate existing on-premises VMware workloads to Azure without the cost, effort, or risk of re-architecting applications or retooling operations.
You migrate your on-premises SQL Database to the cloud, taking advantage of the PaaS offering of Azure SQL Database. You heard the promise of spinning up databases on-demand and scale up resources during high peak and scale down when not in use. You also want to ensure you perform integrity checks, index defragmentation, and statistics updates when necessary. There is no SQL Agent, so how do you automate your jobs? Do you have time to do this manually each time? No. There are different options available to automate these long-running, manual, error-prone, and frequently repeated tasks to increase efficiency.
In this demo intensive session, I will show you different options on how to automate these tasks. Some of these solutions using on-prem infrastructure or services in Azure are conveniently encapsulated within the common Azure portal experience.
At the end of this session, you will have a solid understanding of how to automate SQL Server Maintenance tasks, including replacing SQL Agent functionality with multiple options.
On November 17, 2009, Windows Azure Platform was announced. And SQL Server was one of the first PaaS services available.
Azure services allow us to adapt resources, and therefore costs, to the workload, which is not insignificant in an extremely fluctuating economic environment as we are going through at the moment. What solutions are offered to us by Azure to host SQL Server.
a little more than 10 years later, are SQL, PaaS or IaaS services mature? At you are we reaching the age of reason and should we migrate?
ARM templates are an essential component of one’s DevOps journey when it comes to managing infrastructure and apps on the Azure platform.

In this session I will give you an introduction how ‘Bicep’ works and how it can help you with kickstarting your Azure Infrastructure as Code journey!
One of the characteristics of Platform as a Service components in Azure is that they are open for the complete world by default. Azure PaaS offers great services but you do not want to have them open by default in many situations. For this reasons I see many companies switching back the known functionalities (IaaS) but that should not be the case. In this session you will learn how to secure services like: Azure Functions, Azure App Service, Azure SQL Databases with the use of Azure Front Door, Azure Private Link and Virtual Networks and many more.
Without any unnecessary procrastination, let’s see how it really works. Let’s see how to set up your repository, automate build and make deployment easy. From 0 to fully automated release for .NET application in 45 minutes (or less)!

A logical data warehouse enables access to multiple, diverse data sources, allows querying data from these data sources using SQL language, while displays itself as one logical data source for users. The recently released Azure Synapse Analytics brings together database, data warehouse, and data lake technologies in a single Azure service. One of its key components is Azure Synapse Serverless SQL Pool (a.k.a. Azure Synapse On-Demand SQL Pool), which provides T-SQL queries over high-scale data in various formats (CSV, Parquet, JSON) stored in Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2. Furthermore, these T-SQL queries could get data not just from data lakes, but also from different kinds of databases (e.g. Azure Cosmos DB, Azure SQL, Synapse Dedicated SQL Pool). Thus Azure Synapse Serverless SQL Pool ensures building logical data warehouses in a serverless manner, i.e. without implementing infrastructural details and dedicated data pipelines, while the users have to pay only for query execution costs. In this session, we will present how to build logical data warehouses in a Serverless SQL Pool to combine diverse data coming from Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2, Azure Cosmos DB, and other databases and how to use these logical data warehouses for ad-hoc reporting, proof-of-concepts, and BI sandboxes.
Will provide an overview of how we can utilize Azure Cognitive Services for face detection along with a demo.
Many customers view their migration to the cloud as the single most significant effort their organization will face in the next 10 years. This effort gives customers the opportunity to start fresh, eliminate old habits, and shed years of aging technology accumulation. It also serves to represent a reset to ensure that the organization’s modern infrastructure is built on a secure-first basis.
Azure Sentinel allows customers to develop better habits and build better processes and policies to ensure that the cloud journey starts with security and that, through constant monitoring, automated data analysis, and event exposure, will remain secure.
This session will focus on the unique value that Azure Sentinel provides to help customers modernize their operations by taking advantage of streamlining capabilities that have been intentionally and mindfully integrated into the product. This is not a feature-by-feature Sentinel demo, but a discussion on how Azure Sentinel allows SOCs to think differently and continually improve their overall security operations.
In this presentation, I will introduce Azure Synapse architecture, its components, and features to all stages of data implementation and processing moreover understanding some best practices and pitfalls. Will explain in details the three methods for distributing data (round-robin (default), hash and replicated). From ingesting to data lakes to transform data in big data services to apply machine learning models, including data remodeling. Demo a full implementation of Azure Synapse all the way to presentation and reporting.

Cloud Migration and Digital transformation is the mantra all enterprises are marching towards. In the post pandemic era, the question is not when to migrate but how aggressively to put the company assets to cloud. That brings up the topic on what did we learn all these years when we moved massive infrastructure and other assets to cloud. I would like to highlight my experience on what I learnt with moving large payloads to cloud.
We have all been in that situation where we are stuck chatting with someone we want to run away from but we can’t. At that point, all we hope for is someone’s phone call to let you pull yourself away from the absolute madness you have to deal with in the name of social behaviour!

If you are like me, you have many libraries, helpers, utilities that you have built over time that you use for multiple projects. You’ve thought about publishing them to NuGet so you can share them with other projects or your team but didn’t because they contain secrets, intellectual property, or aren’t well documented. With Azure DevOps, you can set up an Azure DevOps Artifact repository, private to you or your team, to securely store your packages and make them available to other projects and teams. In this talk, we’ll take a small .NET library, and it doesn’t just work with .NET, and build an Azure DevOps Pipeline to publish it in our Artifact directory. With this pipeline, we will build the library, execute unit tests, sign the code using a Code Signing certificate, and deploy it to our Artifact repository. And at the end of the talk, you’ll have a pipeline that you can add to the library, utility, and helper packages with some minor tweaks, when you are ready, to NuGet.
Modern cloud databases offer the ability to scale-out in addition to scale-up.
