Seminars Outline

Event-based Automation with PowerShell in Azure Functions

Azure Functions enables users to deliver event-based services using serverless architecture. PowerShell is now available in Azure Functions to enable operational tasks with event-based automation. Come learn about how PowerShell works in Azure Functions and the new scenarios it opens up to deliver seamless automation across your Azure and on-premises environments. How are PowerShell Azure Functions different from Azure Automation PowerShell runbooks? Could they easily integrate with other Azure services like Logic Apps and Event Grid? This seminar covers the core architecture of how PowerShell works in Azure Functions, various deployment methods, and the benefits and limitations it has when automating tasks.


Four Azure Cloud Secrets - Things you wish you knew about Azure before you started

300 Level: Intermediate architecture, development and more code

Target Audience: Developers, IT-Pro

The Azure Platform contains plenty of tooling and services, and there are many features to help elevate your project to great Cloud heights. Unfortunately, I see many Azure projects which do not take enough advantage of these Platform features or do not give the fundamentals enough attention. The consequence is suboptimization, runaway costs and configuration chaos.

As the Cloud vendor for Azure Microsoft works to help you do the right thing when using the Platform. That is their responsibility. As the user of the Platform your team has responsibility too. Any Cloud team must learn what the opportunities are on the Platform. In these seminars we will delve into some key areas of focus which will help any project a great deal:

We want to avoid an Íkaros scenario and soar in the skies. How does one aim to get there?0 What should you be focusing on when adopting Azure within your organization and what should you never neglect? Join a lead architect who is leading a team that is building a Cloud Center of Excellence on an excursion how to avoid the most common traps and misconceptions. Become much better faster and stay on target with your Cloud journey!
