Speaking at Global Azure Virtual 2020

The Global Azure event has expanded to cover 3 days, April 23-25 and will be an online virtual event due to the Covid-19.

This year I will be speaking at 2 Global Azure Virtual events. The first is with the Global Azure Virtual 2020 UK & Ireland, where I will be contributing a recorded session on Exposing services with Azure API Management. This virtual event will have 50+ sessions with 20 live sessions over the course of the 3 days. The second is with Azure Virtual Community Day – Canada Edition where I will be doing a live stream on Bringing serverless into the Enterprise. This event will have 2 live tracks on Apps + Infrastructure and Data + AI and will have 12 sessions and 2 keynotes.

My first session on Exposing services with Azure API Management is happening on Friday April 24 09:00-10:00 UTC and the link to watch it is https://bit.ly/3aClNGx/.

My second session on Bringing serverless into the Enterprise is happening on Saturday April 25 15:00-16:00 EDT (UTC -4) and the link to watch the live stream is https://aka.ms/AzureCan2020-Track1-Afternoon.

I’m very excited to be speaking at these awesome community events and I really appreciate the opportunity to be part of this global community and share my passion for Azure. So

I hope you will join us on these days these to learn all about Azure from your world community.

Enjoy!

Virtual Azure Community Day is today!

Today is Virtual Azure Community Day and if you missed the sessions, they’re available online here https://azureday.community/#schedule. There are a total of 4 tracks offering lots of content.

Where do all the sessions go when events and meetups are being cancelled all over the world? We thought it would be fun to create a platform where we, as a community, can virtually get together and enjoy those sessions you don’t want to miss out on.

Join us for the first ever Virtual Azure Community Day! No stickers or socks, but 8 hours of technical geekery. There’s multiple streams hosted from Belgium, France, The Netherlands and Central and Eastern European countries.

Enjoy!
