“Service-side WebAssembly with Spin” By Mikkel Mørk Hegnhøj, Head of DevRel at Fermyon Technologies

Microservices are serving us well in many ways. But in some ways, we can do better. Having learned a bit from Functions as a Service, containers, and now WebAssembly, we can rethink some of our assumptions and perhaps devise a better way for creating microservices. In this session, we introduce server-side WebAssembly and shows how it addresses common developer problems. From maintainability of code to security to operational simplicity, WebAssembly is the technology that lets us build better microservices faster.


Mikkel Mørk Hegnhøj is leading the product and developer relationship teams at Fermyon. He has a long background in product management, customer success, and developer engagement at Microsoft, working on products such as Service Fabric, Azure Kubernetes Services, Azure Container Instances, Azure Container Apps and the open-source project Virtual Kubelet. He’s passionate about developer and operator experiences, with a mission to make the path from idea to reality frictionless and quick. Mikkel lives in a tiny and beautiful village in Denmark.


"Learnings from building a Data Mesh in Azure" By Rasmus Steiniche, CEO at Neurospace

Rasmus will take you through the learnings associated with building data platforms in Azure, including compliance, NIS2, Schrems II, GDPR, and Datatilsynets Cloud Guidance.
The talk will focus on how to build secure applications on Azure and the roadblocks we have seen by doing this.
Even though this is a Data Platform many of the learning will apply to you if you are putting applications on Azure and maybe creating an cloud architecture similar to Azures Cloud Adoption Framework.


Rasmus Steiniche is the CEO of neurospace and has done everything from writing java applications. running SaaS applications before it was cool, creating one of Denmark's biggest multi-cloud strategies, and creating big data and machine learning platforms. Today he focuses on helping companies utilize their data and use machine learning to become better at what they do.


There's free parking in the area around the venue, but you will have to register your cars license plate upon arrival.
