Recently I was invited to the Yorkshire branch of the SharePoint user group who held their September meeting in Leeds city centre.  It was also the 1st Birthday party.

At the event I was invited by Simon Doy to present my session on the options for hybrid connectivity between your on premise data centre and the Microsoft Azure Cloud.  This is one of my favourite sessions as everyone I meet to talk about this topic area reinforces that there are so many choices and different considerations to make for each company around what is the best choice for them.

In this talk I try to do a lap around the different technologies available and give an overview of each and talk about cases where you might use them with reference to real world projects.

The slides for this session are below.

Demo Video

On the day we had some issues with my demo which I believed were caused by my Surface Pro not playing well with the projector using HDMI.  Without the projector attached the demo worked fine.

Anyway for those who missed it, the video of the demo is below:

In addition to presenting at the event I offered a prize for the birthday party where names were added to a hat and a winner was drawn to receive a free place on the Zero To Cloud in 1 Day workshop being held on the 16th December 2015 at the Black Marble offices in Bradford.
