After the success of organizing events in Coimbatore and Bengaluru under the TechMeet360 branding, BizTalk360 organized its first event in Gurgaon on February 26th (Sunday). The event “Microsoft Azure Day – Gurgaon” was a full day session on Microsoft Azure technologies.

Microsoft Azure Day – 26th Feb 2017

There were about 77 registrations for this event on Meetup, and 28 attendees turned up on a Sunday morning ready to learn something new.

Azure Web Apps – Deep Dive

The sessions started off at 10:30 am with my session on Azure Web Apps – Deep Dive.

It was a learn by doing workshop. In the first few minutes, I covered topics about WebJobs, Deployment Slots, Application Insights, Continuous Delivery, Traffic Manager and then went ahead with full-on demos. The session was very interactive and got stretched for two and a half hours long, on audience demand. It was so much fun and learning together as everyone was very interested.

After the first session, it was time for a much needed lunch. Many thanks to Microsoft for sponsoring our lunches, courtesy Subway :-).

We all missed Dhananjay Kumar as he fell sick and couldn’t join us for the event (as a speaker). We wish him a “Speedy Recovery” 🙂

After lunch, at 2:00 PM, Abhimanyu K Vatsa started his talk on Azure CDN. Abhimanyu discussed about the Fundamentals of Azure CDN, it’s feature and how to use it.

Azure CDN – Accelerated Availability & Performance

The Azure CDN session concluded with a live demo and was appreciated by everyone.

Learn building Nano Services using Azure Functions

I took the podium one more time and presented on Azure Functions. This session discussed the features, reliability, scalability with a couple of quick demos.

We did some Q&A where I shared some curated links from internet helpful for Azure Certifications preparations. The list is available here on my github repo here: AzureCertification Prep Guidelines

We had some nice goodies, courtesy BizTalk360. We did a raffle and distributed them among the attendees. The raffle round was much fun as everyone was on high to recall everything we discussed throughout the day and answer first! The Best part of the Day!

We concluded the event at 4:30 pm with cheerful good byes! Thank you all the attendees for making it happen. Special Thanks to Deepak Rajendran for the accommodation and all the support throughout the event.

See you all in next event! Happy Learning 🙂
