Talk: Running Securely On Azure

On Tuesday evening 27-Mar-2018 I had the pleasure of speaking to the Nashville Azure group about keeping workloads safe in the Azure cloud. Was a great group with a lot of interesting questions and dialog. They even helped to answer each others’ questions when I didn’t have answers, which is the best outcome of all.

For those interested in the deck I used, please find it below.

Talk: SQL Saturday 694 – Azure SQL Database – not just a cloud version of SQL Server

Spoke today to a small crowd of hardy soles who braved the snow to make it to SQL Saturday 694 – Providence – held at nearby Bryant University in Smithfield.

My slides are included below.

Azure SQL DB – Not Just A Cloud Version of SQL Server – SQL Saturday RI – 09-Dec-2017

Talk: SharePoint Saturday Burlington – Gentle Introduction to Azure

We first looked at how we might solve a random StackOverflow question using Azure Logic Apps, Azure Function Apps, the nifty PhantomJsCloud.com service, and a look at how a little Cognitive Service action could be woven in. A random walk around other Azure features followed. Some reactions were memorable – my favorite, because I completely agree: Why would I ever want to run my own SharePoint instance when the Office 365 service is available? And a bunch of other good questions.

Talk: SQL Saturday Boston – Azure SQL DB, not just a hosted version of SQL Server

Talk: A Gentle Intro to Serverless Azure

Tonight I spoke at the North Boston Azure group and covering serverless concepts by looking at Logic Apps, Function Apps, and a couple of powerful/easy features of Web Apps (authentication via AAD/Twitter & CD via Github).

Before I posted the slides (see below), I needed to clean up the 1000+ emails I spammed myself with from my Logic App demo. (Doh!)
