I don't want to manage Kubernetes: meet Azure Container Apps

Mastering Kubernetes is hard, which is why Microsoft offers Azure Container apps as a managed offering to run your containers.

During this session, Azure Container Apps is compared with Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS).
Do both services offer the same functionality to run containers? What are the differences?
What are KEDA, DAPR, and Envoy and what does it offer me?
How to deploy your applications? Can we finally focus on adding business value instead of infrastructure?

Microsoft Azure MVP Pascal Naber will answer these questions during this demo-filled session.

Infrastructure as Code on Azure: Bicep vs Terraform

The two most promising technologies to provision resources on Azure find each other in this session.

To get everything out of the cloud that it has to offer, applying Infrastructure as Code is a must.
This practical session focuses on this important facet of DevOps.

During this session, the two rivals are shown using demos so it becomes clear when to use one or another but also what the advantage and disadvantages are.

Which one are you going to use to fully provision your organization's infrastructure?
The current industry leader in Infrastructure as Code, Terraform? Or the fast-growing newcomer Bicep?

This is a very practical session with lots of demo's to make clear how both technologies work and what the differences and consequences are.

Running Docker containers on Azure: the overview

Many exciting things are happening on Azure related to Docker containers.

Microsoft Azure is making it easy to run containerized workloads in the cloud by offering a wide range of services. Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), Web application for Containers, Azure Container Instances (ACI), and now also Azure Container Apps (ACA).

By the end of this talk, you will understand the trade-offs of each service, so you can decide which service is best suited to run your container workloads.

Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) in practice

You know what Docker containers are, but how to run Docker containers in production? How to ensure zero downtime deployment? How to instantly scale in case of peak loads? Kubernetes is the number one orchestrator to host Docker containers and is offered by all major public clouds.

Pascal will introduce you to Kubernetes using a real-world case and I will show you how to get your Docker containers under control. This talk will make clear why it’s great to use the cloud for running your container workloads. But you will also walk out of this session with a great fundamental knowledge of Kubernetes. Like what Pods, Services, Deployments, Secrets, Namespaces, and Ingress are and what you can do with them.

Join this session if you are starting the Kubernetes journey and need some help to get going!
