We just want to remind everyone that we have our last meet up of the year in conjunction with the Glasgow Azure UG on Wednesday 6th December @ Collabor8te, 22 Montrose Street, Glasgow, G1 1RE. 2 User Groups & 2 great speakers! Not to be missed!
Next week’s meet will consist of two sessions:
Ed Baker – “Files. Cloud Synchronicity or OneDrive to rule them all.”
In this session Ed will cover off two new products that were announced at Microsoft Ignite earlier this year. Azure File Sync and OneDrive Files On Demand. In this demo-heavy session Ed will suggest that we could be about to see a fundamental change in the way we manage our files. Is it the end of on-premises files shares as we know them! Is DFS about to die?
Stephen Armory. – “Azure Cloud Data Platforms”.
Microsoft now provides a multiplicity of options around data storage, processing and retrieval. The purpose of this session is to introduce 3 of these. Azure SQL Database, Azure SQL Data Warehouse and Azure CosmosDB. With the aid of a few demos and slides, Stephen hopes to give the audience an interesting and informative introduction to these technologies that they can then take away and try out for themselves.
We will be also be holding a small quiz!
We have a great goodie bag for the winner. The main prize will be a Anker PowerCore 10000, a small and compact high-speed charging power bank. We will also be including some O’Reilly Media goodies in the form of stickers, pens and books. The winner of the quiz will also receive SQLGlasgow and Glasgow Azure UG stickers, to proudly display on their laptop. We will also have two small goodie bags for the second and third positions.
We look forward to seeing you all there! If you can’t make it on Wednesday please do let us know, just so we can order the correct amount of pizza and beer!
