Dutch DevOps & GitHub Community

7th DDOG on September 21st


Our seventh edition of The Dutch DevOps & GitHub Community will take place on September 21st!


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.

September 21st

We are proud to announce our great speakers!

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.

Toon Vanhoutte - Azure MVP | Your Azure Coach | CTO @ Noest
Hi! I’m Toon Vanhoutte, Azure Solution Architect and Microsoft Azure MVP. My duty is to design and deliver reliable, secure and scalable applications in the Azure cloud. As a solution architect, I’m not scared to take up big challenges and to dive into a development mode.

I’m a quite active member of the Microsoft Azure community and was speaker on several community and company events. Being a Microsoft Certified Trainer and the founder of Your Azure Coach, I love to share my experiences and learn from others during workshops, presentations and blogs. As an Azure MVP, I’m actively collaborating with various Microsoft / Azure product teams.

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.
