Talk: Open Source on Azure

Ishan jain
Today I had the honor to speak at the Azure Dublin meetup. I covered basics of why Azure is relevant when running anything other than Microsoft stack.

Disclaimer: Currently I am employed by Microsoft, but my views and thoughts are still my own. The reason I joined Microsoft was, the work Microsoft have been doing for last couple of years in Open Source Space. Today I am a advocate for Open Source representing Microsoft.

Currently I am employed by Microsoft, and part of my responsibilities are to advocate for Open Source both within Microsoft but also why Azure is very relevant to run anything Open Source.

This talk is part of my on-going efforts towards introducing Open Source culture and methods. I am currently writing blog posts on the relationship between Open Source and Microsoft.

Microsoft is pushing Open Source as one of its main strategies. Rumors are, 50% of Azure runs Linux, and even more Open Source. Some of the Azure services are either Open Source or running on Open Source.

I gave an overview of Open Source services in Azure. I demoed how to run some Open Source workloads (as defined by Microsoft) on Azure, how to deploy same application (with minimal modifications) in different Azure services.

Tutorials on the demos I did during the talk:
