Meetup Details

Session 1 - Microsoft Chatbot: A Real Life Example

This month we take a dive into the world of chatbots and we are really pleased to have Prolude Dharmendrecim with us to share his experience of designing and implementing a chatbot solution.

A bit about Prolude:

I am a strong advocate of Agile, who loves coding and making good use of DevOps tools. I am also am process and consistency driven individual.

I have a strong technical background with experience in the Microsoft stack at development and architectural level and started my career as a full stack developer.

In my free time I spend as much time as I can socialising, networking, coding and reading through tech posts.

Session details:

The intention is to share the experience of creating a chatbot with

1 - A few screenshot examples how it was created

2 - The struggles experienced at design level and implementation level

3 - A perspectives view of a developer and our customer at a expectation level

4 - The end result

5 - What could have been done better...

6 - A session of questions and answers (if time allows)

Session 2

James Complin - Microsoft Cloud adoption Framework for Azure.

In this session we will cover all the latest release details as part our July release cycle, and the new tooling that is available and how we are leveraging Azure DevOps for management of the adoption.

Post the updates session we will open the session to the floor allowing attendees to steer the conversation to the areas of cloud adoption in which they have particular interest or have blockers currently. Areas the Microsoft Cloud Adoption Framework for Azure covers are -
• Strategy
• Plan
• Ready
• Adopt
• Operate

The aim of the MSft CAF for Azure is to ensure every customer has an actionable framework to guide them to a successful cloud adoption.
