Microservice architecture is a method of developing software applications as a suite of independently deployable, small, modular services in which each service runs a unique process and communicates through a well-defined, lightweight mechanism to serve a business goal.
In this talk we will be introduced to Azure Service Fabric, a distributed systems platform that makes it easy to package, deploy and manage scalable and reliable applications composed of microservices.

Paris Polyzos

Container technologies are changing the way apps are built, deployed and run. In particular, Docker has grabbed the attention of the industry by simplifying the building and packaging of container apps so they can run anywhere, while bringing added benefits of agility and density. Come to this session and learn how Azure Container Service can make Container Management boring and can help you deploy, scale, and orchestrate container-based solutions.

Kostas Pantos

This session focuses on practical architectural guidance for designing highly available, enterprise grade, infrastructure for your applications, using Microsoft Azure (IaaS). Topics include the design of highly available applications in the cloud, increasing the availability of existing applications, and design changes needed for applications that have been through a lift & shift migration.

Vangelis Kappas

Hybrid Datacenter model is the trend that the analyst believe will be the most preferable option for the next 5 years. Are we ready to adopt this trend and what Microsoft Azure offers in order to deliver the efficiency, in our On Premises Datacenter. Can we change our mindset on our daily datacenter operations and integrate Cloud Features on our IT journey. In this session we will discover the Azure Services that can be delivered with a Hybrid configuration and how we can connect the two worlds to achieve more.

Vangelis Kapsalakis

Azure SQL Data Warehouse is a fully-managed and scalable cloud service and with this presentation we will discover it.

Antonis Chatzipavlis

App Service on Linux enables customers to run their web apps natively on a Linux platform. Have a first inside, how Web App Service on Linux allows better application compatibility for certain kinds of applications and makes it easier to migrate existing web apps hosted on a Linux platform elsewhere onto Azure App Services.

George Capnias

The Internet of Things connects billions of devices, sensors, data and cloud applications. In a short timeframe we will try to experience a complete IoT introduction using Arduino’s and Raspberry Pi’s, connect the devices to Azure cloud services, collect messages from sensors and send them to IoT Hub. By making use of various programming languages C#, C, Python and using open source SDK’s in multiple operating systems, the developers will get a clear understanding on how all these bind together, their capabilities and the effort required to implement and deploy IoT applications.

Vasilis Aivalis

Mobile Apps in Azure App Service offer a highly scalable, globally available mobile application development platform that brings a rich set of capabilities to mobile developers. With Mobile Apps it’s easy to rapidly build engaging cross-platform and native apps for iOS, Android, Windows, or Mac; store app data in the cloud or on-premises with offline syncing functionality; authenticate users by selecting from an ever-growing list of identity providers; send push notifications; or add your custom backend logic in C# or Node.js. This presentation demonstrates how to get started with Azure Mobile Apps and easily build an Azure backed cross-platform mobile application.

Nasos Loukas

Why Bots everywhere all of the sudden? What is their purpose? Are they going to replace applications? Is Artificial Intelligence what makes them so powerful? Let’s see the answers to all of these, examine examples/best practices of Bots that are capable of mimicking human behavior and deep dive on how we can build, train and publish Bots in multiple channels using the Microsoft Bot Framework, Microsoft Azure and Cognitive Services.
