Global Azure 2023

Thursday, May 11, 2023

From May 11 tot 13, communities around the world are taking part in Global Azure 2023!

Join our upcoming meetup event at Info Support where we will be diving into the world of Microsoft Azure. In this event, we have three expert speakers lined up to share their knowledge and insights on different aspects of Azure:

Session 1

Tom van den Berg

Continuous validation, getting grip on your non-functionals

Have you ever been in the situation that you wished that you have tested that fail over strategy? Or have been woken up at the middle of the night because your database couldn’t handle the load your system produces? How many of you actually test their non-functional requirements on a regular base? Especially if you build a mission critical application, non-functionals are as important as the functional requirements.

Non-functionals are the requirements that are easily forgotten. How can you be sure that code changes don’t compromise any of these requirements? Without slowing down your development process? That your applications can withstand infrastructure failures?

In this session Tom will give an introduction into continuous validation and how you can use the power of Azure to validate your non-functional requirements.

Session 2

Michaël Hompus

Harnessing Open Source Power: Azure Simplifies Your Open Source Adventure

Open-source adoption is on the rise, but self-hosting and infrastructure management can be challenging. Microsoft Azure enables you to concentrate on innovation while it handles the infrastructure.

Join Microsoft MVP Michaël Hompus in this talk as he takes you on a guided tour of Azure’s managed options for popular open-source products, combining their advantages with hassle-free maintenance. Dive into Azure’s diverse open-source offerings, primed to enrich your projects and elevate your open-source journey.

Session 3

Sander Molenkamp

Exploring Pulumi: The Modern Infrastructure as Code Solution

With the increasing adoption of cloud services and the need for automating infrastructure management, Infrastructure as Code (IaC) tools have become essential for DevOps teams.

In this introductory session, Sander Molenkamp will provide an in-depth overview of Pulumi, an IaC solution that leverages familiar programming languages for defining and managing cloud resources.

By showcasing practical examples, attendees will gain insights into how Pulumi can streamline infrastructure management and what its advantages over other popular IaC tools like Bicep and Terraform are.
