By @SimonCocking. Great insights from Eoin Bailey Azure Technical Architect @MicrosoftUK ahead of his upcoming appearance in Dublin at the Microsoft Decoded Open Source Conference. See more about Eoin on his website here. Book tickets for Decoded here.

Brief background about you?

Graduated from Trinity College Dublin over ten years ago, I’ve been a software engineer ever since, setting up the Google Developer Group in Dublin, co-founding a startup, and working in industry. Previously developing on the Force.com platform, before making the move to Microsoft where I get to work with interesting software companies around the world helping them migrate their software to Microsoft’s cloud, Azure.

What inspired you to speak at this event?

Sharing knowledge has long been a passion of mine, helping a group of people learn more about the possibilities of using Azure is a great opportunity for me to indulge that!

Why it will be helpful for people to attend. What will they get out of your session specifically?

I’ll be running an Azure workshop, covering a broad range of Azure technologies and services. By the end of the workshop attendees will have an overview of several key Azure technologies, and understand how to architect, develop, and deploy software on Azure.

What should Dublin (and Irish) companies do to be successful in an open source environment?

Get involved in an existing project and work with the community that already exists. Allocate time for software engineers in your company to work on an open-source project.

Anything else you’d like to add / we should have asked you?

A side passion of mine is cross-domain collaboration, maps, and Geographic Information Systems. Working across domains opens up everyone involved to new challenges and new possibilities. An example project I was a part of is The Down Survey of Ireland. Developed in Trinity College Dublin across Computer Science and History departments, as well as industry partners we unlocked data that had remained hidden to most people since the 17th century.
