I want to thank Microsoft India for inviting me to take couple of session in one of the most beautiful city of Andhra Pradesh- Vizag. Microsoft organized a one day event for startups to encourage them to use the services offered by Microsoft Azure. I was invited to present on two topics.
Data & Analytic Services
Introduced Azure SQL Database, SQL Server and DocumentDB as the mainstream data stores in the cloud. In addition, talked about HDInsight as a big data offering on Azure. Addressed Stream Analytics as to how one can analyse data in real-time
- Azure provides key managed services to tackle big data and analytics
- provides a managed environment which is high on performance and low on latency
Solution Building Blocks
Introduce mobile services , Media Service and notification hub as a formidable backend for mobile apps. Also introduce the concept of pub-sub & tags.
- Ease of putting together a backend infrastructure for mobile apps
- Notification is designed for massive scale and works with any backend like PHP, Java, Node and .Net
I had a great time presenting on the above topics and thanks Microsoft once again for this opportunity and the lovely audience for bearing me for couple of sessions.
