Ames is awesome! That’s why cool people from Microsoft come to town. Come check out Kevin Remde and get some perspective on how using containers and tools like Docker for managing workloads. This event is a little tech heavy, but we believe it’s a great opportunity to learn new things and of course meet new people in the Ames community.


Join us THURSDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2016 at NOON for the December Ames IT Collaborative. We’ll be joined by Microsoft’s Kevin Remde, Senior Microsoft DX US Technology Evangelist.


Microsoft and Containers Containers Containers!

The popularity and benefits of using containers and tools like Docker for managing and deploying workloads in an agile, massively scalable way has not been missed by Microsoft.  In this session you’ll be introduced to the many ways Microsoft and Azure are supporting containers, as well as new Windows containers built-in to Windows Server 2016.


Kevin Remde – Sr. Technical Evangelist with Microsoft – is an engaging and highly sought-after speaker, blogger, and technical community organizer.  A prolific blogger, Kevin shares his thoughts, ideas and tips on his “Full of I.T.” blog (https://aka.ms/FullOfIT).

In his past outside of Microsoft, Kevin has held positions such as software engineer, information systems professional, and information systems manager.  He loves sharing helpful new solutions and technologies with his Dev and IT Pro peers.
