This coming weekend will be the 6th Global Azure Bootcamp, which is a worldwide series of one day technical learning events for Azure. This event is created and hosted by the leaders from the global cloud developer community.
This will be my first year attending the event and I’m honored to be one of the presenters at not one but two events in Mississauga and Kitchener/Waterloo region in Ontario, Canada. I’ll be speaking about Azure Event Grid and how it can be used in a serverless architecture in the cloud.
“The Global Azure Bootcamp is community at its finest. We are incredibly excited to see community leaders around the world rise up and help developers build the skills they need in today’s cloud-driven business environment. We’re here to help each of these community led events be a success and can’t wait to continue our decades-long commitment to the worldwide developer community,” says Jeff Sandquist, General Manager of the Azure Platform Experiences Group at Microsoft.
I hope you’re able to attend one of the events happening this weekend around the world and learn something new about Azure.
During the Windows Developer Day 2018 keynote, Kevin Gallo talked about Adaptive Cards and how they can be used to provide a flexible way to present your content and your data.
Adaptive Cards gives you the tools to create scale across any engagement surface.
Adaptive Cards was first announced at the Microsoft Build 2017 conference and has now come out of preview and is generally available as a 1.0 product. When Windows 10 Spring Creators Update is released, you will be able to use Adaptive Cards on the Windows Timeline along with other experiences like a bot, Skype, Notifications, Teams and so much more.
