Danish Microsoft Azure Usergroup for anyone and everyone interested in Microsoft Azure.
The goal of this group is to inform and educate people who are interested in the Microsoft Azure Platform, because we think its the best cloud provider out there.
Through this group you will find regular meetups with sessions about a specific Azure-related topic, and occasional workshops. We try to cater to both Developers and IT-Pro's and those in between - the DevOps.
Anyone who is interested in presenting about a Azure-related topic is more then welcome to get in touch with the organizers. You are also very welcome to suggest topics to the group.
We are happy to announce that we can host this meetup again

Azure Cosmos DB is a globally distributed, multi-model database system. The service is designed to allow customers to elastically and horizontally scale both throughput and storage across any number of geographical regions, it offers guaranteed <10 ms latencies at the 99th percentile for point-lookups, 99.99% high availability and five well defined consistency models to developers. It’s been powering Microsoft’s internet-scale services for years.
In this session, we will cover how you can get the most out of Azure Cosmos DB by looking at best-practices and pitfalls to avoid.
