For July’s meetup we are very excited to welcome Keith Mayer (Principal Technical Architect, Microsoft) as the featured speaker. Keith will be sharing guidance and vast experiences in designing virtual networks in a cloud scale environment. If you’re building solutions in the public cloud, understanding how to construct your virtual network the right way is a necessity. This is a can’t miss session!
As in past months, following Keith’s session, we will once again hold an open architecture Q&A session. This is a time set aside for the attendees to discuss ideas or questions about Azure – a time to ask the “Can or How do I do X with Azure?” question.
Title: Networking for Cloud Architects
Abstract: If you’re architecting solutions for the cloud, you’re probably finding that you need to know more about networking than ever before … Attend this session for a primer on cloud networking, and gain some “real-world” insights to recommended practices on subnet designs, security, custom routing and VPN connectivity. Walk away with a set of scripts and templates that you can use for deploying end-to-end networking environments in the cloud.
