Next free Techorama Cafe coming up

Techorama Cafe events are free-for-everyone evening events at one of our partners. We have a new Techorama Cafe coming up on March 10 in Mechelen (Spoor 18 Stationsstraat 55), entirely devoted to working with cloud-native, Kubernetes and AKS. We have 2 sessions, powered by our partner Cronos, planned.

Registration is free but mandatory and can be done using the following link.



Building Cloud Native applications with .NET Core (Johnny Hooyberghs)

Building cloud-native applications and services that will run in the cloud, both public and private, is an important decision to make in order to achieve continuous delivery, reliability and faster time to market. In this session, we will talk about building cloud-native services for Azure, using the latest version of .NET Core. What are containers? What is all this Kubernetes talk? Should you use microservices for all your future projects? How do you manage your data? How do you implement logging, metrics and secret management? There will be slides and there will be lots of demos!

Cloud-native applications on Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS): the bigger picture (Geert Baeke)

You want to run your shiny new .NET Core application on Azure and more specifically Azure Kubernetes Service? Great! But there is more to it than just deploying AKS and getting your containers up and running. How do you deploy your containers? Do you use a traditional CI/CD system or GitOps? How do you expose your services securely to the outside world? What about configuration data and secrets for your application? It’s great that your application exposes metrics and outputs logs, but how do you collect them? Last but not least, how do you ensure Kubernetes best practices are followed?
