Impactful mentorship - 2 sides of a story
  • Olena Borzenko
  • Eldert Grootenboer

When starting to engage with the community, it can be hard to find your own way. There is a lot of information around conferences, giving presentations, setting up blogs, and much more. However, initially we might not know where to start, and where to find the right places to convey our story. This is where those who have been around in the community can really help by providing mentorship. In this session Olena will tell about her experiences as a new speaker, and how having a mentor has helped her on this journey. Additionally, Eldert will share which insights he has gained by being a mentor. Come join this session if you want to know more about starting on your own path, whether you are new in the community, or want to find out how you can give back more. Stream location: GlobalAzure YouTube channel.

Understanding Durable Functions through Lumpia
  • Adrienne Tacke

Azure's Durable Functions allow you to write stateful functions in a serverless compute environment. They're especially great for complex workflows or longer-running, dependent steps. But what does that mean? Why is that awesome? And why are some concepts like these filled with so much jargon? In this alternative and beginner-friendly talk, I'll explain what Azure's Durable Functions are, why they should be part of every developer's toolbox, and break down common Durable Function patterns into approachable, culinary examples. You'll leave with a better understanding of what Durable Functions are, why they're cool, and immediately think of fried spring rolls whenever you hear about them onward! Stream location: GlobalAzure YouTube channel.

    I'm CTO @Sintraconsulting and I worked as Senior Developer, Team Leader and architect in a very large set of enterprise projects. I had a master's degree in Robotic science and another master's degree in project management. My experience in technology extends on many technologies (java, PHP, .net) and platforms (Sharepoint, Liferay, Pimcore) other than techniques (Agile, DevOps, ALM). I’m also interested in Agile techniques, project management, and product development. **The opensource experience** My second life is about opensource. I started in 2006 with an IDE for CSS, and I founded a group of opensource developers called "arduosoft", because make opensource software in the spare time was arduous. During the last 13 years, I created many opensource projects, most of them failed. This is a very big experience and teaches me how to start an opensource project and avoid it will fail. Nowadays you can find on my personal GitHub account (https://github.com/zeppaman/) or into the Arduosoft organization account (https://github.com/arduosoft). **My experience as speaker** I'm writing about cloud transformation on most important Medium publications (The Startup, Better programming, Towards Data Science) and my profile is https://medium.com/@daniele.fontani I write on the Codeproject community for 13 years and I’m now a member of the author’s group ( https://www.codeproject.com/Members/sir-zeppaman). I’m one administrator of the meetup group TechItalia Tuscany that has the goal to link professionals and creates a network through technical meetings https://www.meetup.com/it-IT/TechItaliaTuscany/ I speak publically once a month. I have spoken physically or virtually in many countries (Uk, Jamaica, Italy, Belarus) about DevOps, opensource, and cloud transformation.

    Alberto Acerbis

    Sono fondamentalmente un dev appasionato. Sono socio fondatore di 4Solid, una società che cerca di sviluppare codice divertendosi e ovviamente, commettendo errori. Mi piace restare fuori dalla mia Confort-Zone in modo da avere continuamente stimoli nel proseguire questo lavoro ... o passione. Quando non scrivo codice amo perdermi fra le montagne, soprattutto se sono isolate e imbiancate. Amo tracciare linee con i miei sci dove ancora non è passato nessuno.

    Alessandro Melchiori

    Software craftsman, husband, father, ex-sportsman and inquiring reader. Since I was young I have loved taking apart and reassembling things to understand how they work. Now, this passion has become my job: the step from Lego® to software development was small. Finding the best possible solution so that a complex system can work at its best and making it run smoothly are the goals of my work. C#, ESB, MongoDb and Azure make up my survival toolkit and help me cruise through distributed systems and enterprise solutions, with ease. Be it a command or an event, I try to do my best in contributing to the life of the communities that have adopted me, trying to “give back” at least a part of what I have received over these years.
