A deep dive into Linux capabilities and integrations with the Microsoft Azure Cloud


Join us for this very special look at the Microsoft Linux Story. Dan Stolts (ITProGuru) will teach us about Microsoft joining the Linux Foundation, how this changes Microsoft internally as well in the open source community.

We will also dive into the Microsoft, Docker, GitHub and other Linux/open source communities to understand the buzz. This is not death by PowerPoint.

We will take a deep dive into Linux capabilities and integrations with the Microsoft Azure Cloud. We will also dive into running Docker containers on Linux and how the same EXACT commands are run in the new Windows Containers.

Everything we talk about is new so this is a must attend event!
