Microsoft Azure <3 Open Source Tech

A presentation at Global Azure Bootcamp in in Linz, Austria by Hans-Peter Grahsl

Over the last few years, Microsoft has time and again proven the high priority given to open source technologies, especially in different Azure Cloud Computing Services.

A brief introduction will show the key aspects of Azure Event Hubs and Azure Cosmos DB. Apart from the standard operation, alternative APIs are the focus of this session, which should allow for these two Azure services a seamless integration or a “drop-in” replacement to very popular open source projects.

While Azure Event Hubs offers an Apache Kafka-compliant API, Azure CosmosDB can also be used in a MongoDB-compatible variant. Based on simple use cases and practical live demos, these possibilities are discussed.
