Day 3 – Microsoft Ignite 2019
The first thing I had on my calendar for Day-3 was certification exam AZ-203 which I cleared and I am glad that I have now cleared all Azure certifications (AZ- track). Here is a glimpse of my badges –
Most of the day today, I was at the Hub browsing different product teams’ and partners’ exhibits. Attended a few open theater sessions around different products including Azure Governance and Securing Windows @ Mechanics Live. It was great to find two of my past employers having exhibits (Yash Technologies and Mindtree).
I also found that all the books in MS store are 20% off. I would be buying a few tomorrow. Got some cool swag and Stickers as well –
Apart from the open theater sessions in the Hub, I have attended the “.Net Platform Overview and Roadmap” session by Scott Hunter and Scott Hanselman in the afternoon. It was informative with some good demos – including deploying & running an iOS app on an iPhone within one minute. Some key points were –
- gRPC support in ASP.Net Core
- C# 8 new features
- Blazor roadmap
- .Net Core IoT support
- Jupyter Notebooks with .Net
- .Net 5
Overall, the day went well and I am looking forward to meeting more people at hub tomorrow and Microsoft’s Ignite Celebration at Universal in the evening.
Have a good night!
