Well all good things must come to an end and so it passes that this is the last day MS Ignite for another year . Definitely a more subdued feeling amongst the attendees (maybe due to a big night last night!) and many delegates are already flying home, not choosing to be here for the last day of events.
After the excitement of the previous evening, the day kicked of a little later than the norm for me with the Elastic
One of the things I wasn’t especially aware of was the X-Pack by Elastic and that there is a free, basic version available of that after a 30 day trial. Elastic Cloud may also be an option if we do not want to have to run the underlying infrastructure but just be a consumer of the platform. Shortly after that the session became more of a deep dive into Azure provisioning Elastic with the ARM config files, which was a bit out of my depth.
Waking up at 5am in the morning is a near impossible feat when at home, yet seems to be no problem here. Might have something to do with the sunrise 🙂
Early start today with the 8.15am session on containers with Ben Armstrong. Containers captured my attention when announced in Server 2016 as a great way to virtualise applications.
Today was the first day of Microsoft Ignite Australia 2017 and I am very lucky to have the opportunity to attend!
Microsoft Ignite is the successor of Microsoft TechEd, which had a 2 decade history after being first held in Australia in 1994.
I plan to post about my experiences over the next few days.
