Lo que hacemos

Cloud computing is already a multi-billion dollar business for Microsoft, and yet Azure is just now hitting its stride. Perhaps you're a long-time MS stack developer wondering "where do I go from here?" Maybe you're a seasoned dev manager or director curious how cloud in general and Azure in particular might fit into your next project. If you're looking for the future of Microsoft on the server and in the enterprise... you've found it! This group caters to all things Microsoft Azure and cloud computing. We'll explore a range of topics in three key areas (in likely order of decreasing frequency):

1. nuts-and-bolts Azure dev tools, APIs, features, etc... "how to accomplish in Azure"

2. higher-level topics on cloud computing patterns, architectural best practices, data access strategies, etc. with a focus on applying these in the Microsoft Azure environment

3. business-oriented topics like cloud economic and pricing models, cloud migration strategies, legal and compliance implications of the cloud, etc.

Ultimately our topic list is determined by the interests of the group members. We meet monthly and vary meeting formats as needed; mostly a 30 minute meet-and-greet followed by a 60-90 minute presentation, but some months we'll do two smaller presentations, we'll even try multiple 15 minute lightning talks if we have sufficient interest. We'll keep things relatively informal... as long as the sessions are relevant and engaging for the audience, that's what matters most. Hope you'll come out and join us!

Doing It the Right Way - An Introduction to Azure Managed Identities

6PM - 7PM: Social Hour (pizza and beverages provided) 7PM - 8PM: Presentation -------------------------------------------------- As Public Cloud usage continues to grow, new problems emerge, and new tools arise to help us meet those challenges. In the early days of cloud development, "public by default" was largely the norm, and secret keys or other credentials were used to govern access between services. However, these solutions have been prone to error and both misconfiguration and credential leaks have become very real security issues, leading to data breaches, ransomware attacks, and data loss. One solution to this challenge is the ability to assign identities directly to applications, allowing them to use role-based access control and industry-proven token-based authentication to govern access between services. To this end, Azure has introduced Managed Identities. In this talk, we will introduce Managed Identities for Azure resources, and show how you can use them together with role-based access control and industry-proven token-based authentication to govern access between services, without having to embed credentials in either your code or in configuration files. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- John Garland is the VP of Learning Services at Wintellect and has been developing software professionally since the 1990’s.
