Day[46/100] #100DaysOfCloud – Jonnychipz – Welsh Azure User Group Activities

Ok so I simply ran out of time yesterday to update my blog! So here we go! Lots of exciting news around our Welsh Azure User Group! (

I know this isn’t strictly relating to technology learnings, but the act of helping to organise a User Group is one that is both fun and exciting as well as rewarding in a sense of being able to catchup with the other group organisers and that general sense of achieving something and giving back to the community!

New Sponsorship!

First up, the Welsh Azure User Group is extremely proud and honoured to have the support of not just one but two sponsors with Cardiff based Insurance and Financial providers ‘Admiral Group’ offering their backing to the group.

Huge thanks to Admiral for their fantastic support!

The Welsh Azure User Group is now so proud to have the support from both Servent and Admiral and we are all looking forward to getting back to a time where we can organise our first face to face meetup!!!

Next Meetup!

We also confirmed our Agenda for our next meetup on 12th November 2020 @ 6.30pm, we are all really excited to have some fantastic speakers and topics being discussed – RSVP here:


We have a great agenda and STOP PRESS not one but 2 x Amazon £50 vouchers to be won on the night so make sure you are there in person for the fantastic talks we have lined up and to bag yourself a prize!!!

The bridge will be open from 6.25pm for people to join before we kick of promptly at:

Azure Logic Apps is a Cloud service that simplifies how you design and build scalable solutions for application, data and system integration, whether in the cloud, on-premises, or both. We have recently gone into public preview with some exciting updates for Logic Apps, so please join us to hear about these changes. We’ll also touch on some updates for Azure Functions

Hopefully you will agree that there are some great talks planned and we really do hope to see you at the meetup to say hello, join in and learn some great things about Azure, oh and if you stick around for the Quiz and feedback you might even be one of two people to bag yourself a fantastic prize of £50 to spend on Amazon!!

Late last night I also had a glimmer of some really exciting news aligning another speaker for a separate event, and it’s really exciting who may be willing to join us!! so watch this space for some news, I’ll keep you in suspense!!!
