Workshop 1: From Zero to Hero - Designing a virtual datacenter in Azure
Cloud Solution Architect - Datacenter Tranformation Team
On thing is for sure, designing a datacenter is hard! Designing a datacenter in the cloud is sometimes even harder; Processes need to be changed, technologies and tools keep on changing - Not to mention the mindset shift that needs to occur inside the organization!
But there is hope waiting for you in the dark, the starting point of a successful cloud journey is the so called “Landing Zone”. This approach helps you understand key considerations and implement key technologies when designing a virtual datacenter MVP.
This workshop will help you understand and design an Azure landing zone, so that you can built a virtual datacenter yourself! Learn from real life examples, customer feedback and requirements to have a successful cloud journey.
- Designing Management Groups and Subscription
- Identity and Access Management

Workshop 2: Infrastructure as Code
make it noble GmbH
In this session, Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) Marcel Zehner shows how infrastructure and application components can be deployed and maintained as code. A full life-cycle management approach is key for a successful future of IT Professionals, so join Marcel’s workshop and let you inspire how ARM and Terraform can be used to deploy infrastructure components on a hybrid-cloud and multi-cloud world.
- Workshop for everything IaC
- ARM Templates
- Azure CLI
- Azure SDK
Workshop 3: Azure Security Best Practices
Lead System Engineer, Solution Architect, Azure MVP
Sasha (Saša) Kranjac
Security & Cloud/Azure Otaku (MVP, MCT, CEI)
Kranjac - IT Training
Cloud and digital transformation brings many advantages but has it’s challenges as well. One of those challenges is how to secure our resources and data. Everything isn’t in our local datacenter and behind our firewall. Services are more exposed to access over internet.
In this Masterclass, we will discuss what tools and processes to use to secure your cloud and protect your data and resources - from Azure Active Directory, over NSGs, ACLs, WAFs, RBAC and encryption to using Azure Security Center.
Join real experts and professionals , who design security solutions for companies around the world, to help you stay safe in cloud. By the end of the course, you’ll be able to apply what you have learned and be more confident and secure in your cloud journey.
Workshop 4: AKS/Kubernetes 101 - From container to the cloud
Cloud Solution Architect
In this workshop we will cover the process from creating a local Docker container image up to a securely running application in an Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) Cluster.
First we talk about the Docker basics like images, container and registries. During this lection we also create our own Docker Image and upload it to an Azure Container Registry.
Next we create an AKS cluster and take a look at the Kubernetes basics. Then we deploy our application image in the cluster and learn some security, RBAC, debugging and operational best practices.
At the end we will integrate Azure services like loadbalancer and storage into our cluster and talk about some advanced features of Kubernetes like configuration and secret management, ACI out bursting and Helm.
During the day there will always be the ability to ask questions.
We also can take a look in other Kubernetes topics upon request at the end of the day.
• Basic knowledge of Linux
○ Command Line
○ User Management
• Basic Knowledge of Cloud Computing principles (don’t have to be Azure specific!)
• A Laptop with Internet access (without proxy or knowledge on how to work with it)
• The ability to install the Kubernetes client tools kubectl or Helm
• Interest in Cloud Native Computing and fun attending technical hands-on workshops
You will get a free Azure Pass for the Workshop so you don’t have to use an existing company or private Azure Environment.
Notes and comments
It would be great if we could get Azure Passes for each attendant of the Workshop. If that is not possible I need to adjust the description.
I also would like to get in touch with the attendants prior to the workshop in order to send them setup information for the workshop environment.
Attendants need to bring their own notebook with installed kubectl and docker (a VM could also be used but need to created by the attendee)
Workshop 5: Automation in Azure for DBAs
William Durkin (MVP)
André Kamman (MVP)
Data Platform Architect at Data Masterminds in The Netherlands
Automation in the Azure cloud for DBA’s, the Cloud Competence Center in your company is not going to do ALL your homework for you!
You’ve got this “on-prem” database stuff under control. You have blitzed and Hallengrenned your landscape and you might even have semi-automated virtualisation and consolidation processes. You can support SSIS, SSRS and of course SQL Server. You have security checks in place and have set up HA and DR processes. But suddenly the world is changing a lot faster than you are used to. SSIS has to run in the cloud, Data Factory comes along and SQL Servers are not even just virtual but abstracted away from the databases that run on them somehow. Your company has setup a Cloud Competence Center, or CCC, and they have done a bunch of plumbing like VNETs, AD sync, Policies and example templates. But most of the time they are not that good with Data Platforms.
This is where you come in. In this full day seminar we’re going to learn how to get from a solid on-prem DBA to a good cloud DPA, or Data Platform Administrator. We will take a very realistic demo company and move it to the cloud. We will start at the very beginning and will create full deployment pipelines using Azure DevOps, az-cli, yaml, arm, PowerShell and bash. And we will learn why we need to use all of them and can’t just pick one method!
Don’t have a CCC department? Not to worry, we’re going to spend some time learning about what they do, and how they do it, as well.
