2023, what a year it’s been!

Time flies when you’re having fun and I have had lots of it during this year. As we bid farewell to 2023, I thought that it would be a good idea to wrap it up and see how it went for me, at least as far as the community and tech interests are concerned.

I went public! By far the best I did during 2023 was going public. I spoke at many community events and amazing conferences (such as Swetugg and Stockholm Tech Show!!) and met fantastic people. I found myself in those activities and I can only imagine it getting bigger and bigger. Here is a list of my public appearances:

  1. (Online) Cloud Lunch & Learn: Fire & Forget with Azure Service Bus
  2. (On site, Copenhagen) Virtual Azure Community Day: How to lead an orchestra of Azure Functions
  3. (On site, Stockholm) Stockholm Tech Show 2023: How to monitor and manage a farm of robots using Azure IoT & Digital Twins
  4. (Online) Azure Skåne: Azure IoT Summer Bootcamp: 5 day virtual workshop
  5. (Online) Azure Back to School: How to lead an orchestra of Azure Functions
  6. (On site, Gothenburg) Swetugg Gothenburg 2023: How to monitor and manage a farm of robots using Azure IoT & Digital Twins.
  7. (Online) Azure User Group Sweden: Fire & Forget with Azure Service Bus

I have also blogged ~20 posts on this very blog and recorded 12 podcast episodes with amazing guests who love Azure as much as I do! Last but not least, my good friends at Azure Skåne, welcomed me to the leader crew, which is amazing and I can’t wait to help drive the community forward.

Azure IoT was one of my key focus areas was Azure IoT. I had the chance to explore the capabilities in real-time data processing with Azure Streaming Jobs and how it’s revolutionizing data analysis strategies. Those tools’ flexibility and power have proven indispensable in various applications, demonstrating Azure’s continual evolution.

Cost-Saving Strategies with Durable Functions 2023 also brought me deeper into the world of Azure Durable Functions. I shared techniques to optimize costs without sacrificing performance, a crucial aspect for developers and businesses alike. These strategies not only save money but also enhance efficiency in cloud operations. I had a lot to do both at my work assignments but on my MSc dissertation as well.

Insights from Azure IoT Summer Bootcamp The Azure IoT Summer Bootcamp was a highlight, where we had loads of fun, and hopefully we helped the viewers learn something new. We even had a nice Q&A with Microsft MVP Maria-Anastasia Moustaka!

Azure Triumphs: A Podcast Journey My podcast, “Azure Triumphs, Stories of people who succeed with Azure” featured enlightening conversations with industry experts. I truly loved hearing each and every story and I got lots of positive feedback from listeners.

Personal Growth and Learning Throughout the year, I’ve personally grown alongside these technologies. Each article and discussion has been a step forward in my tech journey, deepening my appreciation for the ever-evolving tech world.

Looking Ahead As we step into 2024, I anticipate further advancements in cloud computing, AI, and IoT. In this blog I will continue to publish anything I find interesting and things I consider not to be common knowledge.

If you read so far, thank you for being part of this journey. Here’s to another year of learning, growth, and tech triumphs!
