Getting your head in the cloud by getting the cloud in your head

DevOpsDays Austin 2023

I recently gave an "Ignite" talk at DevOpsDays Austin 2023 (in Austin) about a mental model for the cloud to build a foundation of knowledge for you to better understand cloud technology as a whole. An "Ignite" talk is a 5 minute talk where you present 20 slides, each advancing at 15 seconds, without stopping until the end. The challenge is to distill your message such that it can be presented in 5 minutes. It's a fun, but challenging, format that really makes you edit, edit, and edit some more.

If you haven't heard of DevOpsDays, it's a well-organized conference (I've been to Houston and Austin now). You will likely fine one near you!

Kansas City Developers Conference

I'll be presenting a much longer form version of this talk at KCDC (Kansas City Developers Conference) in June! In this extended format, I'll go into many more examples and be my usual, highly interactive self. It's an amazing conference with a big audience and a ton of incredible sessions. If you don't have immovable plans, you should get your tickets and plan to be in Kansas City for their Developer Conference.

Ignite Talk Deck

I've posted the deck for the Ignite talk here in case you're interested: Garo Yeriazarian - Getting your head in the cloud by getting your head in the cloud - Ignite Austin DevOps Days 2023.

If you're interested in talking more about mental models and how you can learn cloud (and other technologies), please reach out to me and let's talk!

Getting Started with .NET Core 3.0 and React SPA Template

· 7 min read

.NET Core 3.0 is out and it's chock full of new features to get your application off the ground faster. I'm working on a greenfield application for managing a small church that:

  • Tracks community members and the mailing list
  • Handles weekly checklists and tasks
  • Links up with the accounting software to track donations
  • Handles simple expense reporting for reimbursements
  • And ... that's it for now (gotta start somewhere!)

As I work through these, I'll talk through the development process, the settings, take screen shots and point out any salient code snippets. I'm using this as my vehicle for learning more of the new ins and outs of .NET Core 3.0 and React 16.8+, along with demonstrating ways to manage infrastructure as code and deploy everything in Azure. All the code will be kept open (forcing me to make sure I don't commit anything dumb like passwords or my credit card number).

I've been super excited lately about building JAM stack sites using GatsbyJS, and I recently setup a way for our church website to be updated from Facebook, Office 365 calendar, and static content automatically, hosting them on Azure simply.
