Notes from first ever Global Integration Bootcamp in Chicago on March 25th 2017, sponsored by Microsoft and EnkayTech

We had 30+ attendees at Microsoft MTC in the Chicago AON building, and some were from out of state e.g. Wisconsin, Indiana, Minnesota for example. The event was kicked off at 9 am by Microsoft’s David Giard, a Senior Technical Evangelist who covered Azure and App Services and provided guidance on subscriptions. Next Jaidev Kunjur covered API Management, Logic Apps, Remote Data Gateway, Service Bus, Azure Functions, Azure Storage and Power BI and the attendees were assisted in completing the four hands on labs associated with these topics.  In the afternoon, Eric Boyd did a great presentation and demo on IoT using a real device for input and Power BI to display real time charts showing temperature and other signals coming from the device. The last session was on EDI in the Cloud presented by Jaidev, with a demo showing how we can do EDI and AS2 in Azure using Integration Accounts and Logic Apps, all without needing BizTalk Server. The event ended on time at 5 pm.
