Last year my Community buddies Gregor Suttie and Richard Hooper has the great Idea to start the Azure Advent Calendar. A Advent Calender with 48 different Sessions to Azure related topics. I had the pleasure to held a session about Azure Bastion.
This year Gregor and Richard take this to a new level and create the Festive Calendar. An Adventcalendar with around 85 different sessions around the Microsoft 365 world.
The Calendar has started today with the yearly POM deliverd by Isidora Katanic (BTW: Greetings to the well deserved MVP award) and introduction from Amy Boyd and Adam Jackson.
This year I have the pleasure to hold a session again about Azure …… at the ….! Psst – I do not say when and which topic so it is a an Advent suprise. Take a look at the daily Festivecalendar website to see what amazing session surprises are behind the door 🙂
You can also follow the @_CloudFamily Account at Twitter to get notified when new sessions are available or you follow the tag #FestiveTechCalendar for the latest updates.
Am vergangenen Freitag hatte ich das Vergnügen zu Gast beim Geeksprech Podcast von meinen Community Freunden Eric Berg und Alexander Benoit zu sein.
In der Folge gehen wir auf die vielfältigen Themen zu Azure Files ein. Dazu gehören natürlich u.a. die neuen Tiering Modelle, wie ich Azure Fileshares bereitstelle, welche Vorteile Azure File Sync mir bietet und wie ich vorhandene Fileserver nach Azure migriere und dort weiterhin die vorhandenen Windows ACLs nutzen kann. Sharepoint kam übrigens auch mehrfach zur Sprache – ich kann mich einfach nicht davon trennen 🙂
Es war mein erster Podcast und ich muss sagen, es war eine tolle Erfahrung und ich hatte viel Spaß mit Eric zu den verschiedenen Themen rund um Azure Files.
Wer reinhören mag findet unten die Folge. Weitere Spannende Folgen und viele Infos findet ihr direkt auf der Geeksprech Podcast Website.
Our 1st IdentitySummit is over and we had a amazing Summit with our powerfull Speakers and our attendees.
We (Azure Bonn Orga Team) started planning the Summit in March 2020. The Orga Team from the AzureBonn Meetup consists of Melanie Eibl, Thomas Naunheim and René de la Motte. The idea came from Thomas (our Identity Expert) and we can say that was a wonderful idea.
We meet together at the Debeka Innovation Center (DICE) in Koblenz to organize and streaming all the sessions from one central place. The current Corona situation has unfortunately not made a complete live event possible, so we have met under the rules in force to ensure a smooth process and bring a little live feeling.
Now after 6 session in 2 parallel Tracks we can say it was worth every minute of planning – Why?
The answer is simple: First of all because of our great speakers. Each session was planned with a minimum of 300, and each session went deep into the relevant topics, showing what needs to be considered, the pitfalls and best practices available.
The Microsoft Ignite 2020 has moved to a free, virtual conference with a lots of online sessions about the Microsoft Product world like Azure, Microsoft 365 and more. As every year Microsoft announced new services and new features for existing services. In this blog post I will report about my highlights of the last 48 hours of Microsoft Ignite.
First of all, I’m a little sad because this was to be my first Microsoft Ignite I was able to attend in person. However, I’m glad that Microsoft offers this conference as a virtual version and gives us the opportunity to participate for free and get in contact with the product owners.
Satya Nadella opened the MS Ignite with his Keynote about Challenging Times, Producivity and Modern Work and how Microsoft services can help in every section with different services.
My focus area is Azure, you know it 🙂 And there were a lot of new announcements before and during the Ignite.
This article will be updated after the MS Ignite ends.
Short note, I am pleased to announce that I support some Microsoft Ignite sessions as an ATE (Ask the Experts). Which this means? I support the Product Team in the Live sessions with answer additional questions. There are many possibilities to get in touch with the Microsoft Product owner of each service, so view the Session scheduler and join relevant sessions to ask the Product owner about services, features, possibilities and more.
These times are challenging and I hope everyone is safe and healthy. Normally we have a lot of in person community conference, but actually we move a lot of this community meetings to online meetings. The good thing is we have more time for our family and need lees time for driving and so on.
In the 2nd half of 2020 I have the honor to speak at the following events:
And finally the virtual Cloud Identity Summit 2020. This is our first event and we will focus only on Cloud Identity topics. This idea came up from Thomas Naunheim and we are really happy to realize this conference. The first speakers with great topics are announced and there coming more. Did you interested in how to secure your Cloud Identitys – this conference is a must see.
Time has changed, and the actual situation around the globe has shifted many personally events to virtual events. Global Azure (formerly known as Global Azure Bootcamp) has also transformed the personally meetings around the globe into purely virtual events. This has prompted many community organizers to make their events virtual. The Global Azure Team decided to make an own global virtual event around the globe with a dedicated call for speakers. This has led to the beautiful result that now several global azure events are taking place simultaneously. Some are organized by local organizers and one event is organized by the Global Azure Team. This results in three Azure days of Azure sessions (Thursday to Saturday) around the globe with an awesome agenda, where you can pick the sessions that suit you perfectly 🙂
One of the great things about IT is that you learn something new every day, discuss new solutions or possibilities with other people and have a wide range of options. And there are many conferences throughout the year that you can use to expand your network and learn from other people how to implement and use the various services. I enjoy attending conferences, discussing solutions with the participants, learning from the participants and sharing my knowledge about the services.
In the first half of 2020 there are so many conferences right now announced. I think this is a good point to share a list of all upcoming conferences. This is a list of conferences from all about Europe that I know about. Some are free, some of this need a small fee to cover all the related thinks, like catering, drinks and so one. Take a look of the upcoming conferences and identify some in an area near you, register and grow your network.
Das Jahr 2019 neigt sich dem Ende und damit ein ereignisreiches, vielfältiges und spannendes Jahrzehnt. Viele von uns genießen die Weihnachtsferien im Kreise der Familie und bereiten bereits die Silversterparty vor. 2019 war schon ein tolles und vielseitiges Jahr und das sowohl aus beruflicher und privater Sicht. In diesem Artikel möchte ich einen kleinen Rückblick auf 2019 geben und gleichzeitig einen Ausblick auf 2020 wagen 😉
2019 war aus persönlicher Sicht ein spannendes Jahr. Im März durfte ich zum ersten Mal am Microsoft MVP Summit in Redmond teilnehmen. Es war ein unvergessliches Erlebnis, so viele Menschen mit der gleichen Leidenschaft zu treffen und kennen zulernen. Viel Austausch und Fachsimpeln. Eine Menge tolle Erlebnisse mit Community Kollegen gehabt, die im Laufe der Zeit zu Freunden wurden. Ich könnte hier so einige aufzählen, aber ich denke die meisten wissen sicherlich wenn ich meine 🙂
Hi folks, we are in the end of the year and many advent calendars are running right now. One great idea came from Robert and Gregor, they founded the Azure Advent Calendar. A calendar with Azure session about different services. Every day will be released 3 sessions to different topics in Azure. There are many contents available now. So thanks Robert and Gregor for this great initiative.
I´m happy to contribute with a session about Azure Bastion. A secure way to access your Azure VMs without need for a Jump host or to bind a public IP-Address to a server.
