API Management in a Hybrid, Serverless and a Multi-Cloud World.
At launch, Azure API Management had just two tiers – Developer and Standard. Over the time we have seen the Premium tier with high-end features for enterprise customers and the Basic tier as an entry-level production tier. All these tiers shared a common architecture and came with a few side effects - relatively high provisioning and scaling latencies and non-consumption-based pricing, which don’t fit well with the new breed of solutions based on the serverless application model. API Management can now be customized & implemented around serverless principles & is fast becoming a more organic fit for the emerging breed of applications built using serverless technologies. The self-hosted gateway feature announced recently further expands API Management capabilities for hybrid and multi-cloud environments and enables organizations to efficiently and securely manage APIs hosted on-premises and across clouds from a single API Management service in Azure.
Suhas is a Cloud Solution Architect at Microsoft focusing on Apps, Microservices and Serverless on Azure. He has spoken at various conferences both internally and externally and has about 15 years of experience.

Serverless Images
Processing images is one of those computationally expensive tasks that is perfect to offload into a serverless model and recently while overhauling my website I decided to look at how to improve the way posts are shared on social media. It’s time to go down a rabbit hole of geometry and storage to look at how we can either manipulate existing images or generate something from scratch.
Aaron is a Developer Advocate at Microsoft. Having spent 15 years doing web development he's seen it all, from browser wars, the rise of AJAX and the fall of 20 JavaScript frameworks (and that was just yesterday!). Always tinkering with something new he explores crazy ideas like writing your own implementation of numbers in .NET, creating IoC in JavaScript or implementing tic-tac-toe using git commits.

See you all there and remember to bring along some great questions!
