Azure VM Scale Sets - Unsung Hero Service

Kunal Chandratre - Hall No. 7, 9.45 AM to 11.00 AM

Never ending greedy demands for VMs can be satisfied by Azure VM Scale Sets. In this session we will spend good amount of time on what problems we can face when we talk about Infra scale demands and HA need So that we form the basis for why VMSS. Then we will discuss autoscale, Architectures, best practices for VMSS.

Chaos on software development

Sanjay Vyas - Hall No. 3, 9.45 AM to 11.00 AM

Developers knowingly/unknowingly write code in a manner that it requires modification in future. What makes it worse is that the modification may be carried out by next generation of developers, who don't have context of the code, which the original developers had, leading to bugs and require extensive regression testing. It is easy to analyse such code and reduce the scenarios which lead to modification, reducing the chaos in software development.

Azure Automation in Microsoft Azure

Gouri Sohoni - Hall No. 2, 3.00 PM to 4.15 PM

In this session I will discuss various aspects about Azure Automation like Runbooks, schedules, jobs and webhooks, Desired State Configuration (DSC) to create configurations and applying it to nodes.

Using Azure DevOps for CI/CD of Docker containers on Azure Kubernetes Service

Subodh Sohoni - Hall No. 2, 4.30 PM to 5.45 PM

Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) has become a popular orchestration engine for Docker containers hosted on Azure. In this session Subodh will explain concepts of Continuous Integration - Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) of ASP.NET Core application which is to be created in containers that are orchestrated by AKS. During this session he will demonstrate the use of Azure DevOps Pipelines for this CI/CD.

What New in .NET Core 3.x

Mahesh Sabnis - Hall No. 5, 3.00 PM to 4.15 PM

Multi-container Microservices Enterprise Application Development using .Net core 3.0

Ziaullah Khan - Hall No. 5, 4.30 PM to 5.45 PM

Most applications today are monoliths. Moving to containers is not about creating Docker images and deploying them on to the cloud. It's about diving code into smaller chunks of logical separate code. By applying multiple application architecture principles and code refactoring techniques we'll divide the monoliths into separate services. We'll then create separate docker images for each logical unit and learn how to create enterprise-grade applications.

PnP Provisioning Deep Dive

DevOps Infrastructure as Code

Nadaraj Prabhu - Hall No. 2, 11.15 AM to 12.30 PM

Infrastructure as Code (IaC) is the management of infrastructure (networks, virtual machines, load balancers, and connection topology) in a descriptive model, using the same versioning as DevOps team uses for source code. DevOps is the combination of cultural philosophies, practices, and tools that increases an organization's ability to deliver applications and services at high velocity. Cloud computing has had a major impact on how companies build, scale, and maintain technology products. Most important thing to understand is that IaC is deterministic which offers same environment definition where every engineer will wind up with the same system configuration.
