Extract: You know that some form of cloud adoption or hybrid architecture is a must. You need to realize the efficiencies of the cloud ASAP. But in order to justify continued investment and look like the hero you are, you need to start on a winning streak. Your first foray into the cloud cannot be anything but an unmitigated success. Learn how to choose the right first project, where to save money and where NOT to save money. Join Joe Mack as he shares his lessons learned from real world cloud implementations and gives his advice for Winning the Cloud.
Extract: This presentation starts with a demo of an end-to-end cloud application that is deployed on Microsoft Azure. After the demo, we will break down the components and redeploy the environment piece-by-piece. We'll create, build and deploy a front end web site, decoupled API and backend data store. During the exercise of wiring up all of the components, we will show multiple deployment tools and scenarios supported by Azure, including one-click deployment from Visual Studio, Git deployment from the command line and automated deployment upon code check-in to Visual Studio Team Services.
Extract: This presentation is a sometimes irreverant romp through a list of the most common LinkedIn "fails" that most people are doing and that keep them from achieving maximum benefit from the world's preeminent business social networking tool. Joe will cover what to do, what not to do, how to do it and how to get the most out of the community. This presentation has been given to just about every conceivable business or technology audience and is always a hit!
Extract: When it comes to your APIs, if you have a strong brand, the "Field of Dreams" theory applies - if you build it (an API), they (developers) will come. But if you do not build it correctly, with developers in mind at every turn, they will not stay, and they will not come back. If you follow the common sense design principles in this presentation, you will build your API such that developers will want to use it time after time. Anything less is worse than not having an API in the first place. Let Joe share the design principles he has developed over more than a decade of architecting and implementing service-oriented solutions.
Extract: Join Joe Mack on a fun, engaging journey through an introduction to enterprise DevOps principles. He will recount his experiences as a DevOps evangelist, transformation coach, architect, implementor and developer. He will also weave in pertinent general lessons learned through sometimes funny, sometimes sad but always entertaining stories from his experiences at "Beast Barracks", basic training for West Point Cadets, in the summer of 1986.
Extract: Does your company employ developers? If so, do you have a Developer Evangelist? If not, or maybe even if you do, this presentation should be highly useful. In order to get the most value from your developer investments, you have to value your developers, and using traditional methods to show your love can do more harm than good. Join Joe Mack for a peek behind the curtain to learn a little bit more about what motivates developers and what actions you should be taking right now to ensure that you are not only properly valuing your developers but also positioning your company for maximum success with your technology investments.
