1 minute read

This weekend my employer Motion10 hosted one of the many Global Azure Bootcamp around the world. Where I presented about API Applications and .Net Core.

This year there where 244 confirmed event locations, that held a one-day deep dive class to help thousands of people get up to speed on developing solutions for Azure.

During this day I had the honor to present about Azure API Applications, and two colleagues of my presented about other parts of Azure: Tomasso Groenendijk (Azure MVP), Bobby Bregman and Jesse Gorter.

With this blog I want to share all the information I created and shared with the attendants of the event hoping to get you up to speed as well.
