Agenda (All Time Slots Below are in EDT)

Azure Synapse Analytics holds both promise and peril for data professionals of every stripe. In order to get maximum use of this tool, we need to figure out not only what it can do on its own, but also how it fits together with everything else in Azure. Since Azure Synapse Analytics is a tightly packaged collection of seemingly random pieces, this can seem quite overwhelming - especially for someone coming from the data side of things. If you wonder how security works, what piece go where or how the network plays a part in moving data around, this is the session for you.

In this session we will look into what pieces make up the buffet that is Azure Synapse Analytics, find out how it can work with both structured and unstructured data with ease, and explore some of the architectural patterns that ensure security and performance.

Tempdb, everyone needs it but also wonder how to get most of it! Tempdb is the most important database in SQL Server Engine but less talked about. Knowing tempdb internals and to properly configure tempdb is crucial to avoid the serious implications in your application performance.

In this session, we will dive deep into the internals of tempdb database as it is very crucial and important for the performance of your applications. We will learn about the Best practices of tempdb and the latest improvements in SQL Server 2019. By the end of this session, you will gain the practical knowledge that can help you avoid tempdb problems and maximize performance of tempdb.

Everyone needs a list of what to double check in your environment to ensure your servers and databases are optimized in order to make SQL Server run faster, better and more efficiently. In this session you will learn about what you need to review and implement to get a performance and configuration improvements. You will learn about best practice configuration, SQL Server surface area, memory optimizations, isolation levels, Tempdb and transaction log configuration.

Window functions are the best thing added to T-SQL in decades. They perform great -- until they don't! Attend this session to learn how to get the best performance from window functions.

Necessity is the mother of invention. And in 2020, our necessities changed drastically. #workfromhome started trending and it’s still going strong for a lot of us. In an effort to feel a sense of togetherness from the comfort of our home, let’s not forget the importance of real-time interaction. In this session, I will talk about how Firebase’s realtime database can be leveraged for a number of use cases and how I used it in my application.

The advancement in Conversational AI has revolutionized human interactions, with massive implications across industries. Join Liji as she shares her experiences from building real-world conversational experiences using Azure AI tools. The session will help you understand the capabilities of Microsoft Bot Framework and how an interactive bot is structured. Learn how to create a Virtual Assistant using Azure Bot Service from scratch and within minutes! Give a human side to your bot using Azure Cognitive Services. Add AI capabilities for Natural Language Understanding (NLU) and answering user queries. Finally. connect your virtual assistant to multiple platforms including Amazon Alexa.

Learn how to create, build, and deploy modern full stack applications in Azure leveraging the language of your choice (Python, Node.js, or .NET) and with a Vue.js frontend. Topics covered include modern database capabilities, CI/CD and DevOps, backend API development, REST, and more. Using a real-world scenario of trying to catch the bus, you will learn how to build a solution that leverages Azure SQL Database, Azure Functions, Azure Static Web Apps, Logic Apps, Visual Studio Code and GitHub Actions.

Public, Private, Hybrid...Multi-Cloud?

As the cloud development options and architectures continue to evolve, we've finally found ourselves at the next new thing: Multi-Cloud. What is it? Do we really need it? How would you take advantage of a multi-cloud solution?

In this talk, I'd like to describe a few real-world use cases where a multi-cloud solution is currently in production, specifically when it comes to data. A demo on how to setup a multi-cloud cluster will also be shown.

The audience will leave with a more confident understanding of real-world, multi-cloud use cases and see how to create their own!

Are you interested in learning about AI Insights that are in Power BI Desktop? In this session, I will briefly review the collection of pre-trained models. I will then focus on text analytics and it’s library of functions: language detection, sentiment analysis, and key phrases.

Service Fabric is the foundational technology introduced by Microsoft Azure to empower the large-scale Azure service.

In this session, you’ll get an overview of containers like Docker after an overview of Service Fabric, explain the difference between it and Kubernetes as a new way To Orchestrate Microservices. You’ll learn how to develop a Microservices application and how to deploy those services to Service Fabric clusters and the new serverless Service Fabric Mesh service. We’ll dive into the platform and programming model advantages including stateful services and actors for low-latency data processing and more.

You will learn:

1. Overview of containers

2. Overview of Service Fabric

3. Difference between Kubernetes and Service Fabric

4. Setup Environment to start developing an application using Microservices with Service Fabric

This session will cover a range of data replication technologies in Azure SQL Databases, Managed Instances, and SQL Server, with a focus on Change Data Capture and SQL Data Sync. Some of the topics discuss will be: functionality, use cases, technical details, benefits and disadvantages for each data replication product covered.
