A quick blog post about the past Thursday at Microsoft conference center where the (French) Azure Days #1 took place. As a previous insider, I was invited to a full day of conferences about the Microsoft cloud platform and I was really impressed how it becomes massive: about 80 services from VM and hosting to database and AI. I won’t make ads here but numbers speak by them self:
During the day, we learned basics of the platform: platform specific wording and concepts, how to prevision VM, deploy applications, setup networking and deal with the resource manager. The speakers, 4 architects, were very motivating and knew how to keep people attention (specific mention for Pierre’s distraction when a live demonstration temporary failed). The event will be repeated each 6 to 8 weeks and, good news, it’s totally free! Except if you have to take a day off like me because your company doesn’t think cloud is important… Anyway, I should be present the 12th of September for the Azure Day #2 and I’m now looking forward to participate to the first Google Cloud summit at Paris this October!
