Speaking at Azure Global Bootcamp in Cluj

For the 5th year in a row, ITCamp Community is organising Global Azure Boot Camp (https://global.azurebootcamp.net/).

This is a global event that takes place in over 159 locations around the world. Like last year, Cluj-Napoca is hosting a GABC and appears on the Azure map.

On April 22nd, you are invited to join this event which will have three 90 minute workshops which will be part theoretical and part practical, so we advise you to bring a laptop 🙂

I will be speaking at the event, and my workshop is about ARM templates 🙂

The event will start at 9:00 AM and will finish at around 2:00 PM.

Here are the event workshops:

Azure Functions (Radu Vunvulea)

What are Azure Functions? AWS Lambda from Azure. This is the fastest way how we can present Azure Functions. During this workshop, we will have a challenge to create a system that can process and analyze data without VMs or other computation units. We will use only Azure Functions for it. Sounds interesting, then let’s meet from 09:30 and find out how you can do this.

Machine learning for mere mortals with Azure ML (Silviu Niculita)

Machine learning has been leveraged to radically change many industry verticals. The problem is the learning curve has always been very steep. Exotic languages, complex tools, little or no documentation.But innovative cloud-based ML platforms are changing that and democratizing access. During this session, you will learn the basics of machine learning, and you will see a demo of how you can build a prediction model using real-world data, evaluate several different algorithms and modeling strategies, then deploy the finished model as a scalable RESTful API within minutes.

ARM Templates, how to create them, and use them in your CD pipeline (Florin Loghiade)

Azure has an excellent API that permits the user to automate the creation of every complex environment, using one single JSON document. Those documents are called ARM Templates, and they can be used to create, manage and even refresh any type of resource available in Azure. Using ARM templates and PowerShell combined with a CI/CD tool like VSTS, TeamCity, Jenkins, you can automate the build and deployment of the most complex application out there. In this hands-on lab, you will learn about the benefits of using Azure Resource Manager templates, when and how to use PowerShell in the CI/CD pipeline, and what it takes to create ARM Templates.

Here is the meetup link and I hope to see you at the next Global Azure BootCamp!

Azure Virtual Network Peering – What is it and how to use it


Virtual network peering is a new mechanism in Azure Resource Manager that allows two virtual networks from the same region to be connected through the Azure backbone network. From a connectivity standpoint, this mechanism allows virtual machines in separate virtual networks to communicate with each other using private IP addresses. In this post, I will talk about what Virtual Network Peering is and how we can use it.

Azure Resource Policies – What they are and how to use them

In a previous post I was talking and demonstrating how to create Custom Role Based Access Controls which could be tailored comply with a company’s requirements. Another company requirement is compliance regarding data governance. Say you have one or multiple Azure Subscriptions and one of the company policies is that nobody should be able to create Azure resources outside a specific region. Some / all of the company’s contracts have a mandatory clause that all the data they produce and keep in the cloud should only reside in a specific geographical region. Microsoft has gone to great lengths to ensure that their cloud services (Azure or Office 365) comply with national, regional, and industry-specific requirements governing the collection and use of individual’s data.

PSUG Romania @ Bucharest Cegeka Academy

psug-ro

I’ve received an e-mail two weeks ago from a frequent reader of this blog that he started a PowerShell User Group here in Bucharest and I’m pleased to announce that I will be attending this meeting and I will be presenting a session about building your datacenter with PowerShell DSC.

The event will take place on the 25th October 18:30 at Cegeka Academy (Location). So if you’re interested, you can join the meetup group PSUG Bucharest Romania and come join us for some PowerShell 🙂

Here are the details of the event:

This is going to be the first meeting of (what I hope) is going to be a great sequel of great meetings for all PowerShell enthusiasts.

We are going to debate on the agenda for our next meetings, based on the input of our members, but this will definitely include: DSC, JIT/JEA, Pester, PowerShell for GUIs, crazy PowerShell (creating all kinds of applications with our favorite tool).

We’ll also have the pleasure of welcoming in our midst a great presenter, Florin Loghiade (https://www.florinloghiade.ro/about), who will help us discover the world of DSC with his (introductory) talk “Building and Managing your Virtual Datacenter with PowerShell DSC”.

No cost to attend the meetings! Please join and have an amazing time!

Please look for us also in the calendar of the very popular powershell.org site: Events on powershell.org

See you there!
