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

Ignite 2019 – Tuesday session #mywatchlist #todo

(1) Exploring containers and orchestration in Azure – Tailwind Traders is in the process of moving from pure virtual machine workloads to using containers to run their apps. In this session, learn the ins and outs of containers versus VMs (and when to use one over the other) and get an overview of Azure Container Service, including container orchestration with Azure Kubernetes Service. https://myignite.techcommunity.microsoft.com/sessions/83214?source=sessions>

(2) Azure networking basics – Now that Tailwind Traders has decided to take the journey into the cloud, they need to understand how their applications and services communicate with each other, the internet, and on-premises networks. In this session, we cover the basics of Azure networking: what it is, how it differs from on-premises, and how to take full advantage of its capabilities. We then learn how the virtual machines in your new network can communicate with each other over the internet and our on-premises network, using Virtual Network Peering, site-to-site VPN, and Azure ExpressRoute. Finally, we discuss how you to optimize, using Azure Traffic Manager.  <https://myignite.techcommunity.microsoft.com/sessions/83202?source=sessions>

(3) Discovering Azure tooling and utilities – Microsoft Azure allows you to build your applications with the full power and resilience of the cloud. But, how do you do that? In this session, we show you the tools that Tailwind Traders uses on a daily basis, including the Visual Studio Code editor and its Azure extension. We also introduce you to the Azure Cloud Shell, which allows you to work with Azure resources – without the need for the Portal. Finally, we show you how Azure Resource Management (ARM) templates save you time and help you automate infrastructure, reducing the chance of errors that come with manual human input. <https://myignite.techcommunity.microsoft.com/sessions/83203?source=sessions>

(3) Mark Russinovich Presents the Future of Cloud Native Applications with OAM and dapr Join Azure CTO, Mark Russinovich, for a view on the future of app development and deployment. Mark explains and shows the future direction of defining and deploying applications with Open Application Model (OAM) and rudr, allowing application developers and operators to write and describe apps that are deploy-able across different infrastructures. He will also introduce and demonstrate the new distributed application runtime (dapr) project, which helps developers write scalable, resilient code through microservice building blocks. Mark will be showcasing these new projects in his talk through a variety of on-stage demos.   <https://myignite.techcommunity.microsoft.com/sessions/82059?source=sessions>

(4) Deployment practices for greater reliability _ How software gets delivered to production and how infrastructure gets provisioned have a direct, material impact on your environment’s reliability. In this session, explore delivery and provisioning best practices that Tailwind Traders uses to prevent incidents before they happen. From the discussion and demos, you’ll take away blueprints for these practices, an understanding of how they can be implemented using Azure, and ideas to apply them to your own apps and organization. <https://myignite.techcommunity.microsoft.com/sessions/82999?source=sessions>

(19) Key concepts on how to build high performance, highly available applications in the cloud – Building high performance applications in the cloud requires deploying them across multiple locations to reduce latency for users and ensure high availability should a failure occur in one location. When building distributed applications it is important to understand something called PACELC theorem which says you cannot provide both high availability and maintain consistent data should a failure occur. It also says that even in normal conditions, you also cannot have both consistent data and low latency at the same time. In this interview Mark talks about these concepts so people understand how to design their applications to ensure it meets their needs for high availability, fast performance, and consistent data.
