I work as Senior Cloud Developer Advocate for Microsoft after almost 10 years spent working for IdentityMine and Valorem, two leading firms in Microsoft technologies. I am one of the foremost experts for XAML and C# based development. I code in Azure, Windows, WPF, Xamarin (iOS and Android), ASP.NET. On my free time, I write for technical publications such as MSDN Magazine, and my blog is on blog.galasoft.ch. I am a frequent speaker at conferences such as VSLive, TechSummit, NDC, Oredev and many other international events. In the past I spoke at Microsoft MIX, TechEd, TechDays and more. Prior to joining Microsoft, I was a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional for Windows development from 2007 to 2017, a Microsoft Regional Director from 2013 and a Xamarin Most Valuable Professional from 2015. I am also the author of the well-known open source framework MVVM Light for Windows, WPF, Xamarin, and of the popular Pluralsight reference course about MVVM Light.

Using Azure, it is easier than ever to build event-driven web applications, for example using Azure Functions and the Azure SignalR service. Laurent Bugnion, a Cloud Advocate for Microsoft will show you how he implemented such a solution to solve a real-world problem. This presentation will dive into a production application called Timekeeper, that Microsoft uses to run some of its live TV shows such as the Hello World daily show.
