Application state – I want the easiest most trouble free deployment

PLEASE NOTE: RSVPing TO THIS PAGE WILL NOT REGISTER YOU FOR THIS EVENT. >>> REGISTER HERE: https://aka.ms/ReactorRED-ApplicationState <<<< As microservice based apps are growing, the ability for them to be stateless is more and more of a requirement. But where do I keep that state? The lingering question amongst all developers and devOps. Do I waste time managing a full on-prem self-managed DB vs use something like Azure Database for Postgres and scale with Hyperscale Citus? Database as a service (DBaaS) offer a significant value over alternative options. In this meetup we will showcase: - Where to keep state (DBs) for an application. - The pros and cons of various different options - An example deployment of an e-commerce app being deployed with Bitnami and using Azure Citus - A review of the value of Azure Database for PostgreSQL Hyperscale Citus as a viable option 5:30pm-6:00pm Welcome and Networking 6:00pm-7:00pm Presentation and Discussion around Microbased services 7:00pm-7:30pm Q&A and Networking

A quick primer will be provided in module 1. - Familiarity with Python is required to understand the code being shared. You will be provided with examples to run through. - The code will run entirely on Azure, so you will need a laptop and access to an Azure subscription. - If possible, make sure that you have quota to deploy at least 1 GPU-enabled machine on your subscription (NC6 class or better). - The code will run on CPUs as well, just slowly.
