Current sessions

ARM your Azure Infrastructure with Templates (ARM and BICEP)

Microsoft Azure is an amazing platform, and, in a few minutes, you can deploy an infrastructure of multiple services and/or virtual machines to support a workload. If this is not done using structured and repeatable processes, we can end up with extra costs, orphan services, subscriptions, etc…
This session shows how to use BICEP and ARM Templates for consistent and repeatable deployments. During this demo-dependent session, we are going to check how to use Azure DevOps Repos to control the versioning of ARM and BICEP Templates and Azure Pipelines to deploy then. At the end of the session, we will have a full ALM experience to deploy your Azure Infrastructure.

I find your lack of Azure Governance disturbing!

Organizations are adopting Microsoft Azure at a fast pace. Every day we have more workloads running on Azure. Workloads can be Cloud-native or non-native (lift-and-shift from on-prem). If your organization doesn't operate a robust Governance model, it's easy to create security issues and a lack of compliance.
In this session, we will learn Azure Governance Best practices and how to build a Governance strategy from scratch. We will use services like Management Groups, Azure Policy, Tags, Azure Blueprints, CAF - Cloud Adoption Framework, and Cost Management to build a Governance strategy for your organization.

Supercharge your App Service to a Global scale

Globally available applications are a reality! Even small organizations build their products and services to be available to the entire world. When architecting applications, we should consider that we will reach a global audience. Has an Azure Architect, this is the kind of challenge I live for, but, creating global applications is no easy piece, we hit a lot of concerns, not only technical but also business and legal.
In this session, we will see how services like Azure App Service, Azure Front Door, Traffic Manager, Azure Storage, Azure CDN, Azure Functions, Cognitive Search, Azure Redis Cache, Cosmos DB, and messaging services can help us create a global scale application.
