Topic: Microsoft and Linux... Better Together
Moderator: Dan Stolts , Chief Technology Strategist and Technical 
Evangelist , Microsoft

Location: MIT Building E-51, Room 315

A deep dive into Linux capabilities and integrations with the Microsoft 
Azure Cloud

Join us for this very special look at the Microsoft Linux Story. Dan 
Stolts (ITProGuru) will teach us about Microsoft joining the Linux 
Foundation, how this changes Microsoft internally as well in the open 
source community.

We will also dive into the Microsoft, Docker, GitHub and other 
Linux/open source communities to understand the buzz. This is not death 
by PowerPoint.

We will take a deep dive into Linux capabilities and integrations with 
the Microsoft Azure Cloud. We will also dive into running Docker 
containers on Linux and how the same EXACT commands are run in the new 
Windows Containers.

Everything we talk about is new so this is a must attend event!
