We'll explore the details of how Azure was used in the applications architecture, and then jump into the details of the web site itself including discussions around Entity Framework 7, web site optimization, responsive UX design and much more.
We'll end the episode with a tour of the web site we made over the 3-day event, with all source code available now on GitHub: https://github.com/htbox/
