TUGAIT 2017: Integration and Logic Apps


Two more weeks and I will, once again, return to Lisbon for the TUGAIT event. Last year during the 2016 edition Azure MVP’s Sandro, Nino and myself (the three integration animals, see picture below) did a workshop and several sessions on integration i.e. BizTalk, Open Source connectivity (GrabCaster), and Hybrid  And this was no doubt a successful event and the debut of the integration track. Hence this year the track will active again!


The May 18th until the 20th, a variety of speakers will present on a myriad set of technologies like Xamarin, Angular, DataScience, Agile, Scrum, DevOps, Integration, DotNet, SQL Server, SharePoint, Office365, Azure and IoT.

The integration track on Saturday the 2oth will be packed with session by Azure MVP’s Sandro, Nino, Eldert, Riccardo, Tomasso and myself.

Integration in 2017: Logic Apps

Microsoft has made a leap forward with several of there Azure Services including Logic Apps. A Service that went GA end of July 2016 and evolved rapidly to maturity. Already we see a steady growing adoption of this service within enterprises. Logic Apps is not the replacement of BizTalk, its Microsoft answer to solve integration challenges in the Cloud. The Logic App connectors provide connectivity to other Azure Services and several SaaS solutions like MailChip, SalesForce and CRM online. At TUGAIT 2017 in the Integration Track you will learn more about Logic Apps.

Why attend?

“Nice there’s an integration track, but what if I like to learn about other technologies (too)?

Well you are at the right place as on the 18th there’s a full day of workshops you can choose from. On Friday there are 5 parallel tracks from which you can pick and choose. The same accounts for Saturday, including the integration track!

The event is located in one of the most beautiful, cultural cities of Portugal. It’s three days packed with content, stellar speakers and community leaders you can listen to and grab to ask questions.


Registration is a few euro’s or even free if you do require lunch (the fee is there to reduce waste and prevent having an abundance of food).

You can register here and I will see you there in Lisbon!
