Session 1: Navigating the Azure Cloud at Digitec Galaxus: Our Journey and Lessons Learned by Olivier Girard & Gerald Schermann

Our story starts in 2015 with our on-prem .NET monolith running on Windows Server, accompanied by a single, clunky MS SQL database, powered by fusion-io disks and many other touchable hardware in a server-room - all built-up with about 5 teams back then. Today, our system is highly distributed and modular, entirely operating in the cloud, and processing significantly more data. It is continuously developed and maintained by over 45 Scrum teams. In our talk, we will delve into our experiences spanning the last 9 years – discussing how we work and organize ourselves, tracing the evolution of our system architecture up to the present, and, of course, exploring the role Azure plays in it all. Spoiler: not everything has always gone according to plan…

Session 2: How Criminals Breach your Azure Environment by Marco Schmidt & Manu Meyer
