The traditional audience for Microsoft Build is less technical and
more business focused than the audience for the conferences I usually
attend. But at this point in my career, I'm ok with that. I am aware
that success with Java on Azure means influencing that audience. So
I'm very excited to highlight these exciting Java related sessions at
18:00 EDT Kroger joins Customer Tech Talks to discuss how they are using Java on Azure to manage stock levels across their stores
Success at Microsoft is all about impact. How much impact does your
work have? How does it achieve our vision of empowering every person
and every organization on the planet to achieve more? This 30 minute
customer success focused session shows the impact Java has at Kroger, one of
the leading grocery retailers in the US. They also own Fred Meyer. My colleague Asir Selvasingh is instrumental in the Java work done with Kroger.
10:00 EDT Ask the Experts: What's new for Developers for building Dual Screen Apps for the Surface Duo
Remember the Nintendo DS (dual screen)? The Surface Duo also has two screens, but it's a Microsoft device and it runs Android. That means, you can code for it using Java or Kotlin. This one sounds really fun. I look forward to seeing what Guy Merin has to say.
This is where we get to show off all the things we are doing with Java EE related technologies on Azure. It's presented by my colleague Reza Rahman.
Azure App Service and Azure Kubernetes Service are the two workhorse
services of Azure compute. This talk is about the former, which
provides a much easier to understand model of the cloud to users than
what is offered by AKS. App Service offers a wide variety of
pre-configured solution stacks on Java, .NET Core, Python, and Node,
including Tomcat and Java EE JBoss EAP. I'm not sure how much Java
will be covered, but App Service definitely supports Java vere well.
