CosmosDB in the real world

As a C# developer, I built a Cosmosdb backend for a global real-time platform, working with Microsoft. I'll introduce Cosmosdb, and why you might want to use it instead of other Azure Data options, and I'll talk about some of the pitfalls I discovered, and upcoming/recent changes that Microsoft have made.

Building mostly serverless distributed cloud systems step by step

Serverless is definitely here to stay, and there are also more and more frameworks meant to ease serverless containers and functions development (even across clouds) becoming stable every day. Although the idea behind serverless is not to worry about the infrastructure, you still need to worry about how long will it take to scale, and thats where things like cold starts, preheating, multiple deployments, and hybrid environments come into play. Basically, serverless is a great tool when used where needed, and that's the topic of this talk - learn how to build a serverless system, talk about some caveats, and discuss alternatives.

Office365 Migrations in the tens of thousands

This session will describe challenges (and solutions) migrating large organisations to office365. The goal is to spend time looking at areas which dont attract much attention in typical articles and is based on years of lessons learnt the hard way. Topics covered include Azure AD, Conditional Access, Email and using office365 as the base to integrate merging companies.

Logging, instrumentation, dashboards, alerts and all that - for developers.

Embracing DevOps entails more than just shipping changes to production faster and faster. Your team is suddenly also responsible for monitoring your software in production and detecting and troubleshooting issues. To work together with operation specialists in your team or maybe even embrace a #NoOps approach, you as the developer, need to learn about monitoring.
