About this event

We are all set for our last meetup event in 2015. Working around the holiday schedule, we have finalized Dec 1st for our next event. 

Details:

Mark Eisenberg from Microsoft will be the featured guest speaker for this event. He helped us find a conference room at the Microsoft NERD center in Cambridge, MA. We plan to have food and drinks for all the attendees.

Meetup Agenda:

Introductions: Ajit Umrani, Assembla

Guest Speaker:  Mark Eisenberg, Cloud/Mobile Strategy, Microsoft

As microservices and cloud go hand in hand, the presentation will start with a brief touch on a few cloud topics that may have been lost in the hype driven noise. We will follow with a discussion on microservices, in particular how Microsoft is leveraging them. And we will finish with a high level discussion of Microsoft’s new microservice platform aka PaaS v2 aka Azure Service Fabric.

Follow up Discussion topic: Plans and ideas for improving our meetup event in 2016.
