Cloud Camp Kitchener slides


On Sunday April 12, 2015 approximately 15 enthusiastic attendees came out to Cloud Camp Kitchener. The event was held at The Tannery in downtown Kitchener and it was a chance for developers to learn more advanced topics related to Microsoft Azure. The event was co-hosted by Microsoft Canada and Canada’s Technology Triangle .NET User Group (CTTDNUG).

Along with myself, there were presentations by Microsoft MVPs Lori Lalonde (@loriblalonde) and Tom Walker (@Tinytoot). As well, Microsoft Technical Evangelist Adarsha Datta (@AdarshaDatta) also spoke.

I was tasked with wrapping up the day and for my session I chose to speak on Azure Data Storage. I wanted to give attendees a more “breadth than depth” approach to storage. I created my slides from a combination of the Data-Platform and Data-Storage slide decks in the Microsoft Azure-Readiness/DevCamp repo on GitHub, while adding additional material from a slide deck of David Chappell’s (@DChappellAssoc).

If you would like a copy of these PowerPoint slides I have published them as a downloadable file through Dropbox: Azure Data Storage.

They are also available for viewing and download through SlideShare: Azure Data Storage.

You can also find these links, as well as more information about my previous public speaking engagements, on my Speaking page.

Please contact me if you have any follow up questions from the event. My Twitter information is also available on the slides.

My CTTDNUG presentation on Configuring and Extending Umbraco CMS

My presentation, An Introduction to Configuring and Extending Umbraco CMS, to Canada’s Technology Triangle .NET User Group (CTTDNUG) is just five short days away on Wednesday January 25, 2012.

The presentation will be at the Manulife Financial building in Kitchener, Ontario from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. At the end of the talk there will be raffle draws for Umbraco items as well as additional products from our group sponsors.

Umbraco is a free, open source content management system (CMS) that was launched in 2004. Since then it has grown into one of the premier CMS solutions available to ASP.NET developers. Umbraco is primarily written in C#, stores data in a number of relational databases (commonly Microsoft SQL Server) and works on Microsoft IIS.

This session will provide an overview of how easy it is to get up and running using Umbraco. Through an IIS web deploy, a developer can create a basic site in minutes. Demos in this session will extend the usability of the basic site by integrating existing ASP.NET functionality like User Controls to develop reusable components that can be used in future projects. A discussion of document types, data types, templates, XSLT Files, and stylesheets will round out what you need to get you started with Umbraco.
