This month I had a pleasure to speak at Microsoft Ignite conference in Australia.
I updated my talk about the Azure Portal with more performance tips & tricks, and one of the most important thing I learned while working with the Azure Portal Team: the Data Driven Approach for making decisions and improving product.
I got very positive outcome during and after my session:
After my talks I’ve been interviewed by Duncan Hunter on Azure Portal and Building Large Scale Web Apps with TypeScript:
I personally attended, and watched later (after the conference), a few good talks. From what I’ve seen I would strongly recommend (in addition to my sessions of course):
The Technical Debt Prevention Clinic (Richard Banks) – great talk on distinguishing technical debt from bad code, and strategies to avoid bad code
Microservices, Docker, .NET, Windows, Linux, Azure. Oh, My! (Richard Banks) – awesome intro to Docker+Azure (if you haven’t check Docker yet)
Applied Azure: Building a Large Scale Real World Application on a Coffee Budget (Troy Hunt) – nice overview of different Azure’s offerings (did you know that New Relic is free with Azure App Service?)
Ten Things Every Expert Xamarin Developer Should Know (Glenn Stephens, Kym Phillpotts) – 10 good to know things if you are building apps with Xamarin
Building Azure Connected Mobile Client Apps (Glenn Stephens) – high level overview of building Xamarin apps with Azure
CQRS Secrets: How to Support Scalability and Performance (Richard Banks) – great intro to CQRS, from why to how
Blockchain 101 & Azure Blockchain as a Service (David Burela) – new hot thing from Azure
Blockchain Development on Azure Blockchain as a Service (David Burela & Chris Zhong) – deeper dive
30 Terrible Habits of Server and Cloud Administrators (Orin Thomas) – BEST VOTED SESSION OF THE CONFERENCE, title says all, and it also relates to developers’ habits
Microsoft Ignite Australia was very well organized conference. I had a pleasure to meet a lot of passionate and curious people there. If you are a speaker or developer looking for a good conference, I strongly recommend you to go. If you are not from Australia, don’t forget to take melatonin for 14h+ flight 🙂 Oh, and the location is great too!
