Mustafa Toroman: Azure Active Directory best practices from the field
Active Directory (Azure AD) is Microsoft’s multi-tenant, cloud based directory and identity management service. It’s also new boundary layer for security and everyone is using it. But it brings many questions like how to set up perfect hybrid environment, what should we sync, should we use MFA, should we allow access to external users…
In this session, we will discuss what are do’s and don’t’s extracted from experience from the field.

Mustafa also authored books Hands-On Cloud Administration in Azure and Azure Networking Cookbook, and co-authored Learn Node.js with Azure.

Sia Ghassemi: Unleash the full power of Excel Spreadsheets with Azure Serverless
Thanks to the new Custom Functions for Excel, you can now connect your Spreadsheet to Azure. Where as fetching data from Azure Datastores in spreadsheets is a everyday feature, Custom Functions gives developers the power to move business logic out of a spreadsheet and into Azure to enable the best experience for Users. Use Azure Functions to host your business logic and Excel-formulas don’t have to change, when the algorithm changes. Use Azure SignalR Service to update a cell frequently, without any interaction.
Sia Ghassemi is not just a passionate software architect and Microsoft MVP for the category Azure, he is also the founder of sia-consulting limited, a company specialized in GDPR, dev-security and cloud-security. He is a frequent speaker and workshop-lead at different conferences throughout germany and canada.

In this session you see how you can use Excel and Azure Serverless to bring the best Experience to Users.
