Azure Bootcamp #7

Join this full day Azure Bootcamp to improve your knowledge of the Microsoft Azure platform. Azure Bootcamp is a mix of technical workshops, hackathons and lightning presentations.

The bootcamp is most beneficial to those with some experience in Microsoft Azure and who are eager to learn more by getting your hands on, building solutions.
We start the day with lightning presentations and demos for both Azure starters and Azure experts. You will have time to attend up to three presentations, covering the topics outlined in the agenda.

The majority of the day will be an in-depth hands-on hackathon, guided by Microsofts technical proctors. Each participant will have time to complete one of the hackathons outlined in the agenda.

Note that we will run a ‘Starter Hackathon’ in the morning that will make you ready for one of the hackathons in the afternoon.

Using Azure Container Service for Kubernetes
Gustav Katela, GBB

Our goal with Azure Container Service is to provide a container hosting environment by using open-source tools and technologies that are popular among our customers today. To this end, we expose the standard Kubernetes API endpoints. By using these standard endpoints, you can leverage any software that is capable of talking to a Kubernetes cluster. For example, you might choose kubectl helm, or draft .

How to Organize an Azure Data Lake
Jan Cordtz, CSA

In this session will discuss and see how an Azure Data Lake can be organized to achieve the following:
  • Is easy to use
  • Is as cost-effective as sensible/possible
  • Do not compromise security
  • Fits well into a DevOps scenario
  • Supports both of Gartner’s mode 1 and mode 2 implementation scenario
  • Supports an effective auditing and logging process
Availability in Azure – Availability sets and now Zones….
Per Schou Christensen, CSA

Ensuring availability of applications is always a key design point and topic in any platform discussion, including Azure.

With the introduction of Availability Zones, Azure now gives the ability to design for even higher availability within the same Azure region, while still be managed as a single logical site. This session will introduce the new capability around Availability Zones and the building blocks
Keep secrets out of code with Managed Service Identity
Mads Damgård, CSA

Azure Active Directory MSI gives the runtime of your code an automatically managed identity for authenticating to Azure services, which allows you to keep credentials out of your code and separate concerns. In this session you will get an introduction to the concept and a demo of the functionality.

Modern Cloud Apps
Data Bricks

The Modern cloud apps Hackathon is a hands-on exercise that will challenge you to implement an end-to-end scenario using a supplied sample that is based on Microsoft Azure App Services and related services. The scenario will include implementing compute, storage, security, and scale using various components of Microsoft Azure. The Hackathon can be implemented on your own, but it is highly recommended to pair up with other members at the Hackathon to model a real-world experience much closer and to allow each member to share their expertise for the overall solution.

  • Hands on Labs of Moving data to the cloud using Azure Data Factory
  • Storing data in Azure SQL Data Warehouse
  • Pulling Azure SQL Data Warehouse queries and tables into Azure Databricks (Spark)
  • Building scalable machine learning pipelines with Azure Databricks

Please note that this lab requires some knowledge of R or Python.

Serverless Architecture
Image Searching Bot

Setup and configure a serverless architecture within Azure using a combination of Azure Functions, Logic Apps, Event Grid, Cosmos DB, and Azure Storage. The focus is on removing server management from the equation, breaking down the solution into smaller components that are individually scalable, and allowing the customer to only pay for what they use.

Setup and configure an image searching bot! Using cognitive services to identify images, indexing them to Cosmos DB. Additionally you will setup LUIS to be able to ask the bot to find all images with water in it or any retlated questions. If time permits it, we will teach the bot Danish.
HPC: Increase productivity of your engineers and meet the deadline
Migrate your workloads to Azure with Citrix Cloud

Your engineers depend on simulations to verify and complete their project, even though they received heavy workstations from IT to run their simulations, typical runtimes are days and weeks. And whenever the model is not correct the first time: it means going over project deadlines… To provide better solutions, we will deep dive into High Performance Computing and demonstrate some of the ways to use multiple computers at the same time to work together to run the simulations. You will even build a HPC cluster yourself and test the important features that will deliver you performance!

Hosted by an experienced Citrix Consulting team, learn about Citrix Cloud and how to use the XenApp and XenDesktop Service to deploy apps and desktops into Microsoft Azure. This session will focus on the architecture of Citrix Cloud and Cloud Connectors with Microsoft Azure as the resource location.
