Session 1 - Deep dive into Azure Private Link

This month we take another deep dive into networking with Adam Stuart discussing Azure Private link.

In this session we will introduce Azure Private Link, cover the business benefits and then whiteboard the technical nuts and bolts, including comparison with existing Service Endpoints, Hybrid access from On-Premises and DNS integration.

Session 2 - Moving 65,000 Microsoft developers to DevOps on the Public Cloud

For our second session of the evening we are delighted to welcome back Michael Royster from Microsoft. Michael will be sharing their experience of migrating 65,000 software engineers from infrastructure built up over decades of high-intensity work into a common engineering system based on modern software development technologies and best practices.

In this session we will hear about how they did it and the lessons they learned along the way.
