TNWikiSummit15 Day 2 Presentation: Azure DocumentDB

Finally! The so much awaited event arrived and I did my presentation on Azure DocumentDB. Below is a summary of how it went.

The International TechNet Wiki Summit 2015 aka TNWiki Summit15 will be a landmark in the TechNet Wiki history! This Summit edition will be a unique conference to be held by Community members, based only on TechNet Wiki articles created to share problems and solutions, providing the opportunity to acquire knowledge and strengthen contacts between IT Professionals and Developers, to improve their professional growth.

DocumentDB  is the latest storage option added to Microsoft Azure.
It is a no-sql storage service that stores JSON documents natively and provides indexing capabilities along with other interesting features.


The presentation went through the basics of DocumentDB and went directly into demos of how to create a DocumentDB Account, how to query DocumentDB and how to use DocumentDB with ASP.NET MVC.

Although there were not as many listeners as expected, participating in such an event and interacting with people sharing the same interest from around the world is really a great experience.

I look forward for more similar events in the future.
