Speaking at Microsoft Ready 2019

Microsoft’s new fiscal year just got started (on July 1st), and as it has been happening over the past years, employees from all around the world were invited to come to Las Vegas for a global sales, marketing, and technical kickoff. The event itself takes an entire week. For the second year in a row, I had the opportunity to attend the event as a speaker. On this edition, I received the duty to speak Read more…

Building a high-scalable and cost effective environment on Azure for static frontends

The development of web applications keep evolving on an very accelerated pace, and, as you may know, nowadays, one of the areas where this evolution is taking place is the front-end. Because we have fast internet connections, lovely development frameworks and extremely efficient and secure protocols to make the communication flows all the way out from the final user’s computer to remote services, is totally feasible to developers create beautiful, robust, wholly decoupled and, at Read more…

Webinar: Simplifying and Optimizing Student Labs with Azure Lab Services

On May 23rd, I had a chance to deliver out in partnership with both Microsoft Canada’s and Lab Service’s engineering teams a webinar about Azure Lab Services. While Claude Remillard (Group Manager for Lab Services team) delivered a talk about the strategic vision for Lab Services and how institutions have been leveraging the service to optimize the way that virtual labs have been pushed down to students, I got the duty of demonstrating how the Read more…

Cloud opportunities for educational institutions: Lab Services

If you work with IT as I do, you probably have been told that “cloud computing is going to completely change both the way people do business, and IT professionals work”, right? Yes, we’ve heard that in many events, posts like this, and such, however, cloud computing is already here (probably your company is using a cloud computing platform right now) and the things doesn’t seemed to be changed that much, does it? I mean, Read more…

Moving a 4 million users web application from on-prem into Azure

In 2018 I accomplished 16-years working professionally with technology. It is a considerable amount of time, isn’t? Starting in 2010, I had the opportunity to work directly and indirectly with a large number of projects involving Azure. Most of them? Apps migration from on-prem to the cloud (we’re still there but, this is a conversation to another moment). What I couldn’t imagine at that point is that all the experience was accruing until that moment, Read more…

Building an environment end-to-end using Application Gateway as single entry point for Web Apps

You know that but never is too much remember that concept; Azure could be seen as a giant puzzle composed by hundreds of small and big waves of peace in which customers can put some of those together to create an ideal scenario for a given application (I really like to see cloud platforms that way). Why do I remember that? Because this post, once again, all about brings peaces together. In this case, we Read more…

Cloud opportunities for educational institutions – Part 1

This is the first article of a series of others whereby I intend to present out and discuss, in a high-level, how educational institutes have been implementing projects on Big Computing, AI and, Data among so many others on top of Azure services. It has to be great, and I’m excited to use this channel to share that with you. Since I started my professional career back in early 2000, I have always been passionate Read more…
