Staring at the Cosmos...
Analysing flight data in real time using CosmosDB, Azure Functions and Power BI “CosmosDB is a globally-distributed, secure, PaaS, multi-model, NOSQL database with a choice of consistency models, enterprise SLAs, encryption and guaranteed latency. This session will cover CosmosDB’s main features in the context of an Aircraft Predictive maintenance use-case developed by endjin. We will cover the benefits that made CosmosDB the right choice to support a global, mission-critical application. There will be a live demo of the solution architecture, operational system and example queries. We will also show examples of how we integrated with Azure Functions and Power BI to create real-time analytics over the ingested flight data.“ Mike Larah - Engineer Mike has been building enterprise software solutions on the Microsoft Azure platform for 5 years. As an engineer at endjin, he works closely with the Microsoft Product Teams, whilst delivering a wide range of projects for organisations of all sizes - from innovative data and analytics platforms for disruptive start-ups, to high-scale compute grid platforms for global financial institutions.

    What we're about

    Public Group

    We bring our members great talks from the best speakers in the UK and where possible from around the world. Predominately we look at the Microsoft development stack, but we do have platform neutral and methodology based talks too.

    We guarantee one meeting a month, normally on the 3rd Thursday of the month. Everyone is welcome! Be you a student or grizzled professional, come along for a night of great content, people and pizza :)

    We offer your first 2 events for free, then after that we'd like you to take out a membership to continue attending. Speak to either John or Rich to find out more about how the membership works :)

    If you're wondering why you can't see the full 5 years of back sessions we've had, it's because we've recently migrated from our old home at NxtGenUG Southampton ( By all means go and see what we've covered in the previous 5 years :D
