"Fortunate are those who take the first steps.” ― Paulo Coelho

Ignite 2019 – Friday session #mywatchlist #todo

(1) Securing Azure IaaS virtual machines : In this session, learn the top five things that you can do to improve the security posture of your Azure IaaS VMs, including secure administration practices, security configuration management, as well as being notified of critical security events. <https://myignite.techcommunity.microsoft.com/sessions/83221?source=sessions>

(2) The Modern Windows Command-Line: Windows Subsystem for Linux 2 : The Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) community has given amazing feedback on how we can improve through platforms like Twitter, Github, and UserVoice. Our team has taken that feedback to heart. In this session, they’ll be showing off how the new WSL architecture will improve your development environment with faster file performance speed, Linux file access from Windows, better support for Linux applications, and more. <https://myignite.techcommunity.microsoft.com/sessions/81325?source=sessions>

(3) Consolidating infrastructure with Azure Kubernetes Service:  Kubernetes is the open source container orchestration system that supercharges applications with scaling and reliability and unlocks advanced features, like A/B testing, Blue/Green deployments, canary builds, and dead-simple rollbacks. In this session, see how Tailwind Traders took a containerized application and deployed it to Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS). You’ll walk away with a deep understanding of major Kubernetes concepts and how to put it all to use with industry standard tooling. <https://myignite.techcommunity.microsoft.com/sessions/83033?source=sessions>

(4) Modernizing your application with containers  Tailwind Traders recently moved one of its core applications from a virtual machine into containers, gaining deployment flexibility and repeatable builds. In this session, learn how to manage containers for deployment, options for container registries, and ways to manage and scale deployed containers. Also, learn how Tailwind Traders uses Azure Key Vault service to store application secrets and make it easier for their applications to securely access business critical data.  https://myignite.techcommunity.microsoft.com/sessions/83032?source=sessions

(5) Building resilient applications in Azure : In this session, learn how to easily build applications in Azure that are inherently resilient. Use Azure Virtual Machine Scale Set (VMSS), Availability Sets, Availability Zones, highly available images with Zone Redundant Storage (ZRS) accounts in regions that support Availability Zones with Shared Image Gallery. Take advantage of the SLA continuum that Azure offers, scheduled events, event grid, and more. <https://myignite.techcommunity.microsoft.com/sessions/82913?source=sessions>

(5) Developing secure applications in Azure : Security is everyone’s responsibility and as a developer, it is critical that the code you write is secure, sensitive data is stored securely and not exposed to attack, and your applications are protected. In this session, we explore several Azure application scenarios and the DevSecOps principles and best practices you should apply to secure them. Join this session to get familiar with the services, tools, and methodologies to build secure applications on Azure <https://myignite.techcommunity.microsoft.com/sessions/81970?source=sessions>

(6) Azure Dedicated Host deep dive : With Azure Dedicated Host you can deploy your very own private cloud in Azure. Control the maintenance window, gain direct visibility over the underlying server infrastructure, and place your Azure VMs on a single tenant server to satisfy specific compliance or regulatory requirements without compromising your security posture. Join this session to explore and evaluate the use cases and workloads that can benefit from Azure Dedicated Host. https://myignite.techcommunity.microsoft.com/sessions/82910?source=sessions

(7) Navigate common pitfalls encountered when containerizing Windows Server applications : Join us as we go step-by-step through the process of containerizing an especially gnarly Windows Server 2008 legacy .NET application. We demonstrate the common pitfalls and what you can do to overcome these challenges. There be dragons! https://myignite.techcommunity.microsoft.com/sessions/83947?source=sessions

(8) Linux based web app development made easy on App Service App Service provides an easy on-ramp into Azure for Node.js, Python, Java, and PHP developers. Intrinsic build capabilities, SSH command line access, free SSL certificates, support for popular OSS frameworks, rich monitoring and diagnostics capabilities, virtual network integration and options to deploy your app as either source code or a Docker container, are all provided on an enterprise grade platform that scales with your business needs.<https://myignite.techcommunity.microsoft.com/sessions/81602?source=sessions>

(9) 45 life hacks of the Windows OS in 45 minutes – 2019 edition Do you believe you know a lot about Windows but you would be eager to learn more? Sami Laiho, one of the world’s leading operating system experts, shows you 45 tips and tricks about the Windows OS that you didn’t even know existed! You will walk out thinking “How did I miss that for all these years!” Sami’s sessions were evaluated as the #1 and #2 Best Session at Microsoft Ignite 2018 so you can rest assured that you will learn a lot and have fun while doing it!  <https://myignite.techcommunity.microsoft.com/sessions/78726?source=sessions>

(10) Use serverless technologies to manage your IT resources Managing cloud resources is increasingly becoming a challenge for IT organizations with the accelerated adoption of DevOps and digital transformation. Being able to retain high availability best practices, adhere to compliance requirements, and manage costs at the same time generates additional challenges. With the help of serverless technologies, you can increase automation and apply policies to cloud resources to simplify the management of your operations. Join us to learn how to use Event Grid, Azure Logic Apps and Functions to apply IT policies such as asset tagging, maintenance window scheduling, and disaster recovery schemas to your Azure resources. <https://myignite.techcommunity.microsoft.com/sessions/84320?source=sessions>

(11) Using Azure Web Application Firewall to protect your web applications and web APIs If you build web applications and APIs on Azure and want to protect them from common threats, exploits and volumetric attacks, this session is for you! Web application firewall (WAF) is the gold standard for protecting against malicious threats. In this session, learn best practices for securing your web applications and APIs with Azure’s cloud-native services. Build your own multi-layer application protection strategy to protect your Azure resources using Azure’s network and application security services. <https://myignite.techcommunity.microsoft.com/sessions/82947?source=sessions>

(12) Azure automation for managing servers across your environment This session is focused on helping IT optimize and automate server management for cloud and on-premises. We discuss the transition to cloud based services, review how IT can empower the teams to manage their workloads while providing guidance and governance, and walk through best practices and customer learnings. Last, we share our roadmap for the next evolution of server management. <https://myignite.techcommunity.microsoft.com/sessions/81586?source=sessions>

(13) Taking your app to the next level with monitoring, performance, and scaling Making sense of application logs and metrics has been a challenge at Tailwind Traders. Some of the most common questions getting asked within the company are: “How do we know what we’re looking for? Do we look at logs? Metrics? Both?” Using Azure Monitor and Application Insights helps Tailwind Traders elevate their application logs to something a bit more powerful: telemetry. In session, learn how the team wired up Application Insights to their public-facing website and fixed a slow-loading home page. Then, we expand this concept of telemetry to determine how Tailwind Traders’ Azure Cosmos DB performance could be improved. Finally, we look into capacity planning and scale with powerful yet easy services like Azure Front Door. <https://myignite.techcommunity.microsoft.com/sessions/83006?source=sessions>

(14) Understand Azure Monitor data types and collection There are many ways to collect and ingest data to Azure Monitor. This session walks you through everything you need to understand how data flows from cloud and hybrid environments to Azure Monitor. Also, see the different data types you can use, and how to query them and build dashboards. <https://myignite.techcommunity.microsoft.com/sessions/80636?source=sessions>
