Global Azure Norway - day 3


For the final day of Global Azure conference we will be hosting a free in-person event at Microsoft Norway facilities at Bjørvika.


All workshops will run from 10:00 - 16:00.

We are providing parallell tracks for this event:

  • Workshop: Mastering Azure API Management - Der Workshop (Sven Malvik)
  • Exam preparation course: AZ-900 Azure Fundamentals (Håkan Silfvernagel)
  • Self-paced workshop based on Microsoft Learn learning paths (NNUG team)

Mastering Azure API Management: Der Workshop

Have you ever tried to program in two languages at the same time? When I started working with Azure API Management, I learned about the concept of policies, which happens to be XML files with C# code statements. Many API developers and administrators struggle with policies because of that but also because of its enormous power.

Many engineers that I helped to understand Azure API Management in conversations and during workshops experience this Azure service as a smarter reverse proxy compared to other services such as Azure Application Gateway and Azure Front Door. However, they find it somehow hard to grasp the details of it such as how products and subscriptions fit into APIs or when, where, and how to develop policies. Others look for ways to integrate Azure API Management into an existing architecture, be it hybrid or cloud native, and want to ensure secure end-to-end communication between API consumers and API backend web services.

This workshop will help you to understand why Azure API Management is more than a reverse proxy but a service for managing an API-centric enterprise architecture. You will learn about its core concepts and how you can work with them in a productive way such as publishing APIs, creating API versions, and developing policies. If you are an administrator or architect, this book will teach you different networking modes so you can integrate Azure API Management into your hybrid or cloud native architecture. You will then learn how to log and monitor the traffic that is going through Azure API Management besides other typical administration tasks such as automatic backups and caching.

Sven Malvik is Head of Cloud Platform at Vipps, Microsoft Azure MVP, and book author of *Mastering Azure API Management.* He has talked at international conferences such as Microsoft Build, Microsoft Tech X, and NDC, but also at various local Meetups. You can become a member of his own Meetup, DEVREAL, where the community shares real-world developer experiences.
