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. 


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.
