BizTalk360 (Kovai Limited) is a community driven organization, and with this in mind we have started a user group in Coimbatore, India. We have named this user group initiative as TechMeet360. The aim of this user group is to focus on Microsoft Technologies like Azure (Service Bus, Logic Apps and API Apps), Mobile Services (Xamarin with C#), BizTalk, MVC, Docker, and other generic technology relevant topics in the interest of the community. We plan to conduct this event once every month. In addition, once every quarter, we have decided to conduct this user group event on a bigger scale. The event will be on the lines of an Integration Day event in major cities like Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad, and so on.
First User Group Session – June 11, 2016
The first session of the user group took place on the 11th June 2016 at our office premises. The topic covered was Cross Platform Mobile Application in C# With Xamarin by SivanRaj (Senior Developer at BizTalk360). In this session, SivanRaj presented the advantage of using Xamarin to develop native mobile application for iOS, Android and Windows Mobile (Write Once Runs Anywhere). Details from a Design, Development, Build and Testing perspective were covered.
A small number turned up for the first session, but everyone was certainly interested in the topic. They gave positive feedback as it will help them to make the decision which technology they would prefer for mobile application development.
Session on Microsoft Integration Technologies, Azure Service Bus, and Azure Logic Apps
The second session of the user group event will be held on the August 6th, 2016 at our office premises. The topics for this session are Introduction to Microsoft Integration Technologies and Azure Service Bus by Arunkumar Kumaresan from BizTalk360. Arun will talk on what is the future of Microsoft Integration and Azure Service Bus technologies. The second topic for the day is on Azure Logic Apps by Senthil Kumar Palanisamy and will cover basic details about creating and using Logic Apps and API connectors.
We have planned to host the first Integration Day event at Bangalore on September 10, 2016. The venue for this event will be Microsoft’s Global Technical Support Center (GTSC) Office. This will be a One Day event focusing on the integration space with speakers from both Microsoft and BizTalk360.
