• Cloud Takeaway - June - Azure SQL DB managed instance... A different SQL Server?

    The Dutch Cloud Meetup is organizing sessions for Cloud Takeaways. Cloud Takeaways is an event that is organized multiple times a year with great content on the Microsoft Cloud.
    Each event will be one session by acknowledged speakers within the Microsoft community. For June we have one session:

    Gonzalo Bissio
    Data & AI Specialist @Microsoft
    A truly passionate about SQL Server on all of its editions (that include express as well (?)). I’m speaker of the PASS Argentina chapter, father of Pedro, Fan of Club atletico Independiente from Argentina (Soccer or futbol fan 😛😛) and Rocky Balboa’s Soldier💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻. I have the following certifications -> Microsoft certified trainer, Azure Database administrator, Azure data engineer and Azure administrator but the most important one is that I LOVE AZURE SQL! On all of the versions :P

    Azure SQL DB managed instance... A different SQL Server? On this session we will explore this new service. Migrations, backups, HA among other things that will help DBA’s to choose this option as a database platform.

    The session can be followed live on:

    *** In-person event ***
    This evening, we will be back for another Dutch Cloud MeetUp of this season! The theme for this evening will be messaging. We start with an introduction into messaging, followed by an in-depth session about eventual consistency. In other words: there will be a ton to learn this evening! And, as this is in person, there will be a welcome with food and drinks, provided by our sponsor BRINK Software.

    18:00 - 18:45 : Dinner + Welcome
    18:45 - 18:50 : Welcome
    18:50 - 19:35 : 1st Session - Annejan Barelds: Introduction into Azure Messaging
    19:45 - 20:30 : 2nd Session - Dennis van der Stelt: Dealing with eventual consistency

    1st Session - Introduction into Azure Messaging
    Our first session will be an introduction into messaging, details will be announced soon (tm).

    2nd session - Dealing with eventual consistency
    As software architects we want to make our systems more performant, maintainable, understandable, or any other thing-able. We use infrastructure like Azure Service Bus or Service Fabric. Maybe we’ll introduce patterns like CQRS and Event Sourcing. Many of these choices introduce eventual consistency, but users expect immediate consistency. They don’t want to wait for eventually. They expect feedback now. There are, however, ways to work around this.

    So what exactly is eventual consistency and how can we make it work? In this session, we’ll have a look at different patterns, both in the user interface and the back end, that give our users immediate feedback even though the back-end system is not. We’ll discuss how to solve the complexity of dealing with eventual consistency, without sacrificing decomposability or performance.
