What is DDOG

We want to create a community for content related to DevOps and GitHub. We believe GitHub has a lot to offer and deserves a user group in the Netherlands. But we also love the different elements that enable DevOps. So we decided to combine those two into the community you are looking at.
Our goal is to have a platform where we can teach, learn and meet each other.

Learning to ❤️ HATEOAS

Sander ten Brinke

Have you noticed that apps often contain code that already exists on the server? For example: Checking if an item can be deleted. But the server also checks this during deletion! If you change this logic on the server, you need to update all your apps, too! And that is just one of the downsides..

Isn’t there a better way? During this presentation, you will learn how HATEOAS can help!

Sander ten Brinke - Lead Software Engineer @ Arcady
Sander ten Brinke is a Lead Software Engineer at Arcady, a Dutch IT consultancy firm based in Zwolle. He loves working with .NET, Azure, CI/CD and a whole lot more. He always stays up to date with all new technology and loves sharing his knowledge with everyone!

Infrastructure as Code: Better safe than sorry

Barbara Forbes

With infrastructure as code, you can deploy resources to Azure with just a few lines of code. It’s easy to start, just click “export template”, copy PowerShell code from the documentation or use the VSCode extensions for ARM templates or Bicep. What could possible go wrong?

With great power comes great responsibility. How do we make sure the code, the Azure resources and the team running it are all safe? In this talk, we will look at different ways to test Bicep and ARM templates before they are deployed to the real world. After that, let’s not forget about the team processes to protect the environment and ourselves. In the end you will have some practical guidance to ensure your code is secure, risks are mitigated and you can work together to manage your Azure environment.

Barbara Forbes - Azure technical lead @ OGD | Azure MVP | GitHub Star
Barbara works as the Azure technical lead for OGD in the Netherlands. She is a Microsoft MVP Azure, MCT and GitHub Star. Her focus is on Azure and automation.

Quantum software development? Azure Quantum & Microsoft Q#!

Johnny Hooyberghs

You’ve probably heard about quantum computing, but it still remains a mystery? In this introductory session, I will quickly explain important concepts like qubits, superposition and entanglement and how quantum computing can hopefully help us to solve exponentially large problems.

Some theoretical knowledge about quantum physics, quantum gates and quantum algorithms will be combined with examples using a simulated environment on a local PC and on real quantum hardware using Azure Quantum. These examples will use the new quantum language Q# from Microsoft.

Automate your Azure infrastructure with Bicep and Azure DevOps!

Toon Vanhoutte

The expectation of modern applications is that they are provisioned in a completely automated fashion. Easier said than done! In this demo-packed session, I will automate the infrastructure provisioning of a web application by using Bicep and Azure DevOps. We will go together through the complete process. Throughout this session you will learn many tips and tricks and best practices to ensure that secrets are handled correctly, that the developer experience is optimized and that we have and end-to-end traceability.

The Fifth Element : Azure Secure Devops

Mike Martin

In the 21st Century the Cyber Universe is threatened by Evil Source Code and Evil entities. The only hope for many developers is the Fifth Element : the Sec in Devops, which must be implemented side by side with the Four elementals : Code, Build, Test , Deploy. A Microsoft Service is bringing the Four Elements but can the Fifth be included, and will it save us from disaster?

Let us see how we can leverage Microsoft product in combination with industry standards and protocols and 3rd party tools al over the full flow of your DevOps and ALM structure.
