I’ve recently attended my very first TechEd here in Europe at Barcelona. Just one word, AWESOME!!!
Five days of first hand insight of what Microsoft has in store for us. It was well attended. My main focus at TechEd was:
- Azure Active Directory
- SMA & DSC
- Anything PowerShell related 😉
The 400 levels were well worth it. I didn’t quite figure out the session codes until a colleague pointed out how the system works.
Azure is gaining momentum and Windows 10 is going to be the new Windows 7. I enjoyed the KeyNote Session. There was a dj and everything. Microsoft knows how to make an intro!!! Mark Russinovich deployed WordPress using Dockers. Before the demo many (including myself) didn’t even know about their existence. But if Mark is endorsing Dockers then you know it’s going mainstream… Soon!!!
SMA (Service Management Automation) & DSC (Desired State Configuration) are a match made in heaven. And guess what? QR Codes are a valid option when it comes to MFA (Multi Factored Authentication). I even attended a Machine Learning session. As the Cloud grows it’s going to be a necessity, I’ll get back to you on that…
PowerShell really is at the heart of everything! It isn’t optional! At the PowerShell Summit in Amsterdam, it was all about DSC, now I understand why.
The Mark & Mark session (Mark Minasi & Mark Russinovich) on Cloud Computing was packed!!! Mark Minasi knows how to entertain a crowd.
So much to process… Stay tune, I’ve got a lot to share!!!
