Hi friends! 


I’m happy to share the insights from the recent Azure Developers - .NET Day 2024. This event was a treasure full of knowledge for .NET developers looking to harness the power of the cloud. With a focus on AI and .NET, the day was packed with sessions that explored the cutting-edge of cloud-native capabilities, AI advancements, and app development efficiencies .


General Recap

The event kicked off with a warm welcome and quickly moved into practical AI coding sessions, demonstrating how to infuse AI into .NET applications, making them smarter and more intuitive. We also have sessions on how GitHub Copilot for SQL Development is a game-changer, showcasing how AI can streamline database development processes.

Midway through the day, a session on Redis & .NET Apps highlighted the importance of consistency and smart capabilities in applications. A presentation on Change Data Streams with Azure SQL was a hit, offering insights into real-time data manipulation and analysis.

The final sessions of the day focused on developer productivity and cloud-native computing. A talk on Azure API Center unveiled new tools to boost productivity, and a session on VS Code Project Setups provided valuable tips for streamlining development workflows.
