Optimize Your .Net Azure App Services
Brian McKeiver

Azure App Services are basically the de facto standard as the best possible way to deploy and host a .Net Framework or .Net Core application, period. You can argue with me until you are blue in the face about other hosting methods or platforms, but you would still be wrong. However, utilizing an A

From Monolith to Serverless: Rethinking your Architecture
Michael Dowden

It’s easy to understand the benefits of Serverless but it’s not always easy to understand how this will impact our software architecture. In this talk we will deconstruct a set of requirements and walk through the architecture of both a traditional service-oriented architecture and a modern serverl

Ron Dagdag
Developing Spidey Senses : Anomaly Detection for apps
Ron Dagdag

Anomaly detection is the process of identifying unexpected items or events in data sets. It’s about detecting the deviation from expected pattern of a dataset. It’s like having “spidey senses” for your apps that can detect when there’s danger or something is not right. Attend this session and learn

The Ugly Side of Serverless Apps (and How to Succeed Anyway)
Michael Meadows

AWS has Lambda, GCP has Cloud Functions, and Azure has Functions. Although they differ in implementation, they all share a basic philosophy: only pay for what you use. With this benefit, however, comes some downsides. This talk explores both the shared and platform specific considerations that devel

Mike Lutz
Big Data for the Small Fry - Bootstrapping from onsite to Cloud by scaling down Netflix's ideas
Mike Lutz

There’s been a loud drum-beat about how Big Data is changing the world - but if you come from the traditional company, the kind where your main product is something other then data, odds are you've been mostly on the sidelines, trying to figure out if this is real-or-hype, and if its real, how to do

Maximum Overkill: Using Terraform to set up an AWS-hosted personal website
John SJ Anderson

Terraform is an exciting Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC) tool that lets you provision and deploy services to multiple clouds and providers. It’s an extremely popular tool with DevOps teams. I wanted to learn how to use it, and decided the best way was to do a small, “real” project – writing automation
