Deploying your Infrastructure and workloads within a private & secure network.

In this session, we are going to explore the different ways of how to deploy your Infrastructure within a private and secure network. We'll have a look at some fresh and exciting ways to host your Azure DevOps Agents and Github Action Runners directly within your own virtual network. Whether it's deploying your Infrastructure as Code, accessing your Terraform state files or pushing web applications to App Environments, these agents can communicate safely with your workloads that are tucked behind Azure's private endpoints.

So you want to go passwordless ?

Join me on a journey toward a passwordless future. In this session, I’ll explore the available alternatives, including passkeys and the authenticator app. We will also check out some effective strategies for passwordless rollout and how to boost your defenses against phishing attacks.

Azure Governance with Azure Enterprise Policy As Code.

Azure Governance is a set of capabilities that help you control and protect your applications and resources in Azure. One of the key components of Azure Governance is Azure Policy, which allows you to define and apply policies for your cloud resources to help you ensure that your cloud environment follows the rules and best practices that you set for your organization. In this technical session, you will learn how to get started with the Azure Enterprise Policy As Code Framework (EPAC), which is a solution that helps you deploy and manage Azure Policies using code. You will also learn how Azure Enterprise Policy As Code (EPAC) can support your Azure Governance strategy and make it easier to implement and maintain policies at scale.
