This is a session about the new release of the most popular System Center Operations Manager Management Pack for Microsoft SQL Server from the team, which knows that MPs better than anybody else. We'll show you how new, improved dashboards can be used for monitoring all SQL Server components and roles. More than it – we'll go beyond the SQL Server monitoring and demonstrate how these dashboards can be used for visualizing any workload monitoring including Windows, IIS, SharePoint, Exchange and more. We will talk about new monitoring scenarios, dashboards improvements (including multiple visualization styles) and other new features of the SQL MP. When you combine this with some monitoring best practices you will have a monitoring focused session that you will not want to miss!
UK MVP Rob Miles reckons that writing programs is the most creative thing you can do. He's very keen to tell everyone why. During the session he wants to talk about the best way to learn to code, how you can create synchronous software using asynchronous services, and the role of cheese carrying robots in modern computing.
SharePoint 2013 is not just a collection of lists and libraries anymore. It is a big product with lots of built-in out of the box services. We as SharePoint developers used to build a lot on the top of SharePoint, but with rapidly growing product functionality, there is less need for developing custom code. In fact there is more need for consultants that they know SharePoint out of the box services and features and they also know how to configure and use them. The new generation of SharePoint architects, have deep understanding of built-in services and their limits so that they can decide whether to develop custom code or just enable a built-in Service. This approach makes SharePoint development quick and dramatically reduces the cost of maintenance and support.
