Deep dive into Microsoft Semantic Kernel Agents powered by AI Assistants
You may be interested in creating agents with the Microsoft Semantic Kernel using GPT Assistants for handling complex problem-solving tasks. It uses AI to coordinate the work among multiple assistants. Each assistant has its own persona and tools, operating as separate GPTs. The days of manually managing conversation states and chat threads are behind us. Now, with the support of these assistants, we can have conversations that remember their context.

In this session I explore how these assistants can interact in three different scenarios:

  • hierarchical chat agents (interactive chat)
  • joint chat agents (interactive chat)
  • agent powered by agents as plugins chat (one prompt chat)

Say goodbye to building boring APIs with Azure Data API Builder
Developers often find themselves building APIs solely for data retrieval and storage, a task that can lack excitement and be very time-consuming. Enter Microsoft's open-source solution: Data API Builder. This tool enables you to securely expose your Azure database through REST and GraphQL endpoints, eliminating the need to manually write these APIs.

Microsoft Entra External ID: easy authentication from your app to your API

Save yourself and your users time with Microsoft Entra External ID authentication. Microsoft Entra External ID provides built-in support for multiple identity providers, such as Google and Apple ID. With just a few clicks in Azure, and a few lines of code in your app, your users can sign in, sign out and a lot of other useful things. You don’t even have to worry about creating a login page!

In this session, you will learn the basics of Entra External ID, its benefits, and how to integrate it into your app and Azure. This includes a walkthrough on setting up Entra External ID and a demonstration of how you can log in with a .NET MAUI app and access an API.
