Talk: Top Azure Features Every ASP.NET Developer Should Know About at Groupe Azure Montréal

Last week I was delighted to speak to the très agréable folks at the Groupe Azure Montréal.

My talk was: “Top Azure Features Every ASP.NET Developer Should Know About” and the abstract (in both French and English) is included below. Had a great time hanging out in advance of the event with both Alexandre Brisebois and Guy Barrette who were superb hosts and helped me and Maura get the most of our short trip to their fine city.

Here is a link to the slide deck (in PowerPoint): 2014-04-28 – April 28 – Groupe Azure Montréal – Top Azure Features Every ASP.NET Developer Should Know About.pptx

Sujet: Top Azure Features Every ASP.NET Developer Should Know About

Let’s face it: as technologists, “the cloud” is in the future for all of us, and resistance is futile. For many of us who predominantly develop on Microsoft technologies, adopting the Microsoft Azure cloud platform will be a natural progression.

How to get started? In this talk we will cover some easy ways to get started with the cloud, progressing from simple ideas to more ambitious ones as we go. Similar to how learning a new programming paradigm tends to stretch the mind (e.g., a C# developer learning functional programming with F#), you will also see that learning how to develop for the cloud will inform and shape how you go about developing day to day – even if not (yet) for the cloud.

Some of the topics we will cover (in varying depths) include devops, dev-test, non-.NET tool stacks, federated identity, semantic logging, and cloud-friendly architecture patterns – all while touching on a variety of Azure features and services on the way.
