Microsoft Cloud Workshop


  • Microsoft Technology Center 555 California Street, Suite 200 San Francisco, California 94104 (map)

Join us for the Azure Cosmos DB Hands-on Workshop to expand your knowledge of Azure and Azure Cosmos DB through an immersive hands-on workshop. We’ll walk you through a real-world scenario, do a whiteboard design session and a hackathon to bring it all together.

This session will demonstrate how applications implemented on popular no-SQL platforms like MongoDB and Casandra can be easily moved to Azure Cosmos DB. You can import the data to Azure Cosmos DB from your existing no-SQL platform using Azure tools and your applications will require little to no changes as Cosmos is API compatible with both MongoDB and Casandra.

This session will also highlight CosmosDB functionality such as support for Azure Table and Apache Tinkerpop's graph traversal language Gremlin. Cosmos is friendly to all developers in Java, .NET, Node, js and Python. Even Ruby and Go are supported for MongoDB. You can support large and elastically scalable applications with Azure Cosmos DB, and even integrate them with applications with a relational SQL focus.

There will be four hands on labs where you will learn various aspects from:

  1. Creating and administering Azure Cosmos DB

  2. Geo-distribute data easily with Azure Cosmos DB

  3. Migrating data to Azure Cosmos DB

  4. Migrate an existing MongoDB application to Azure Cosmos DB
