Brian will talk about Microsoft's journey from a product to a services company, and how Java is an important part of that journey, highlighting Microsoft's Open source offerings for Azure (https://azure.github.io/), and talking about how Java developers could benefit from using Azure services in their applications. The focus will be on real-world examples using Microsoft's open source SDKs on GitHub (https://azure.github.io/projects/sdks/) and tools (https://github.com/azure) available for non-Microsoft developers, with a drill-down into our Java offerings (https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/java-on-azure-a-great-selection-of-options/) and how they can enhance Java applications. We also want to gather feedback from attendees on some exciting new offerings designed to make it easier to deliver Java in the cloud.
