Enterprise Social Insights with Power BI
To support the strategy that “the better they collaborate internally, the better they do as a company”, a client wanted to understand how their recent social and collaboration investments were being utilized. In this presentation we will discuss how we used Azure services and Power BI to provide a real time self-service analytics solution.
Data was consolidated from multiple data sources, including Google Analytics, Yammer, SharePoint Online, SharePoint User Profiles, OneDrive for Business, and Azure AD. Azure WebJobs run periodically to bring in and update data stored in Azure SQL. PowerBI Desktop connects to Azure SQL and is used to generate the reports. The reports are then published to PowerBI.com, where they are shared with specific business owners.
Interception! Not just for sports fans
Using dependency injection in your application opens up a world of possibilities - one of them being Aspect Oriented Programming.

We'll show how to write interceptors that work for synchronous and asynchronous models, and how to hook into the object construction pipeline to build your own extensions
