.NET Core: not your daddy’s dotnet

.NET Core: not your daddy’s dotnet is an introduction to .NET Core, including demo's.


Azure Data Lake

This session shows you the basics on Azure Data Lake, and then some… This technical session includes demo’s on how to store information in Data Lake Store and how to use PowerBI to create reports based on data from Azure Data Lake.


Everything Serverless

Everything Serverless in Azure, from Microsoft Flow and Logic Apps to Azure Functions and EventGrid. This session has a lot of information (approximately a day's worth) and Hands-on Labs.

Ran full day at Global Azure Bootcamp. Can be divided into smaller sessions.


Working with Microsoft Graph

In this technical session we'll dive into using Microsoft Graph to execute different types of actions. This varies from simple tasks like inviting users to your Azure Active Directory B2B tenant, to (way) more complex scenario's where (information from) different Graph entities are combined.

Microsoft Graph
Get rich context for your applications, such as who someone's manager is, whether they are out of office, or what documents they've been working on.

Access deep insights generated from usage patterns, such as trending documents, best team meeting times, or who people typically work with.

Respond to changes in Microsoft Graph data in real time. Reschedule a meeting based on responses, notify others when a file is modified, or continue a process after it's been approved.

Build solutions that target enterprise users in Azure and Office 365, consumers on Office Online (Outlook.com and OneDrive.com), or both.


Supercharge your web application with Azure

Azure has grown significantly the last couple of years and offers quite a few services (100+ and counting). A lot of those services are geared towards Web development. This session gives insight in how to make use of the power that the different Azure web services can bring you as a developer. Think Web Apps and Azure CDN. But also less expected services like Azure Functions, Active Directory B2C and Application Insights.

One of the most recent additions to Azure is Azure SignalR Service. This service enables you to “Easily add real-time web functionality to applications”. But how easy is this? And what about other scenarios? We’ve all heard about the latest trend in Cloud Computing: Serverless. You can easily implement a web application that’s being served completely by Http triggered Azure Functions. So how do you leverage the power of SignalR service in that scenario?


Securing an Azure Function REST API with Azure Active Directory

With Azure Functions it’s pretty simple to implement a REST API. With Azure Active Directory it’s not too hard to secure an application. Angular enables you to develop rich front-ends. But how do you go about putting these three together…?

This session will show you how to secure your Azure Functions powered REST API using Azure Active Directory, and how to consume this API from an Angular front-end.


Building a (simple) Azure IoT solution

This session shows you how to start building a (simple) Azure IoT solution. We'll do so using an IoT button (http://iot-button.eu/index_en.html) and Serverless architecture. We'll cover things like setting up the device, configuring IoT Hub, and handling the messages that come in from our device.

What can we make that button do...??!?
