Develop useful and lasting applications on private and public Azure clouds
Microsoft Portland Office (Pearl District)

This presentation will focus on how Azure and Azure Stack enable developers to “write once” and have the flexibility to deploy in private or public clouds. Developers can create applications based on a variety of technologies such as Windows, Linux, .NET, PHP, Ruby or Java all of which can be deployed and operated the same way across on-premise, hosted and public Azure deployments. Atmosera will provide some insights into the upcoming Azure Stack release and how best to take advantage of all its features to create a consistent platform regardless of how it is deployed. In this presentation you will learn:

  1. How Azure Stack enables seamless deployments on both public and private Azure clouds.
  2. Limitations to take into consideration.
  3. Specific use cases for addressing application latency, backups, and Disaster Recovery (DR) across hybrid clouds.

The Hackster Microsoft Roadshow
Holliday Inn Portland West

The Hackster Microsoft Roadshow is an exploratory, first look workshop into how IoT leverages cloud technologies.

This four hour workshop is designed primarily for people working in the tech industry in companies with IoT projects and/or may find themselves needing to expand their knowledge beyond the local device and understand downstream architectures in the cloud. This workshop addresses how data from a device may be received and subsequently processed. This class is not about the device, it is about device data and cloud back ends.

This is a lecture-lab style course in which topics are presented by the instructor. Labs are completed by students during the workshop, or students may finish labs after the conclusion of the workshop. This workshop presumes no knowledge of Azure cloud products. It does presume some knowledge with making an IoT device using an Arduino or Raspberry PI and/or other such related “maker” experiences and skills.

THE INSTRUCTOR

Kent Stroker is a Senior Consultant at Microsoft IoT OEM.
THE WORKSHOP

In this workshop, we hope to introduce students to Azure Cloud, the Azure IoT portfolio, and streaming analytics and dashboards. We'll provide hands-on experience building a basic “cold” and “hot” path IoT, cloud-based, back-end processing architecture.

Here's a preview the first event that happened in Charlotte, North Carolina on Monday, June 12th on YouTube: 1st half, 2nd half

Every participant attending this event will receive IoT completion certificates.

WHAT TO BRING

Since we want to make the most of our time at the workshop, please follow the instructions to prepare for the workshop before arriving. You can download everything from the github page here. It is strongly advised for students to print a copy of the lab handout for easy reference during the workshop.

Bring a laptop running Windows 10 that has wireless network capability. YES, you can use a virtual machine running on your mac or linux computer! Don't forget your power supply!

Do the following on your laptop:

Enable Developer Mode Enable Windows feature “Windows Subsystem for Linux” Make sure you can invoke a bash shell from a Command Prompt window Install Node.js v6.10.3 LTS from www.nodejs.org Install Visual Studio 2017 Community Edition (it's free!)

Create a Microsoft Azure subscription. Azure accounts are free for the first 30 days and come with $250 credit.

OPTIONAL

It's a good idea to plan on being able to provide your own hotspot connectivity. Packing an extension cord is often a good idea. A mouse is often nice too.

COURSE TOPICS Lab 1: Azure Cloud IoT Hub Lab Lab 2: Store Messages to Table Lab Lab 3: Data Visualization Web App Lab

INSTRUCTOR COMMENTS

This is a very cram packed 4 hours, come prepared to learn at a fast pace. Also, understand that this course will not make you an expert in Azure IoT, rather this is a first look at the depth and breadth of the Microsoft IoT technology stack and introduces to some of the major pieces of a typical IoT cloud architecture. You should come away from this workshop with a sense of “knowing what you do not know” and eager to learn more. There are many avenues for learning more and we will wrap the workshop with next steps and learning resources you may wish to explore. Look forward to seeing you at one of these workshops this summer!

PRIVACY NOTICE This event is jointly operated by Microsoft and Hackster. Any data collected may be used by both Microsoft and Hackster. Please read their full privacy statements. Microsoft’s is here and Hackster’s is here.

Serverless Architecture Meetup - Security in a Serverless World: Understanding Risk and Protection
Stackery 428 SW 4th St Suite 200 Portland, OR 97204

Cheers to 2019! We are starting the year off talking about Security!

According to a 2018 survey from The New Stack, over 75% of organizations are using or plan to use serverless in the next 18 months. But it does not come without security risks. In this talk, Sonya will discuss key components of serverless architecture and potential risks organizations need to be aware of, such as: visibility and monitoring challenges, denial-of-service attacks, dependencies on external resources, access control risks, and best practices for serverless security both as functions are built and at runtime.

Sonya Koptyev is the Director of Evangelism at Twistlock. She has been driving community efforts across various development technologies since the early days of SharePoint and .NET. Sonya worked on building the Office developer community and the Microsoft AI developer community and bringing the latest in bleeding edge technologies into the hands of developers. As part of Twistlock, Sonya is looking to bring the world of secure cloud native development into the hands of every developer, ensuring that they can make the most of the best cloud native technologies in a secure way.

Schedule: Doors Open at 6 p.m. Programming to begin at 6:30 p.m. with Q&A after.

Drinks and Light Snacks will be served.

Interested in speaking at a future event? Message us and let us know! We'd love to have you.
