We've rewritten (and open sourced!) the C# and VB compilers, and exposed their functionality through APIs as the .NET Compiler Platform. But what do these APIs mean for those who aren't compiler jocks?
Learn about diagnostic analyzers, a key new feature of Visual Studio 2015 that lets a NuGet package introduce custom warnings and errors to your build. Analyzers let a NuGet package easily introduce custom warnings and errors to your build, along with automatic fixes in the IDE. We'll walk through the thought process and development of a simple diagnostic and code fix for the Regex API to see what it's like to quickly build analyzers for an API.
Regardless of whether you’re building on a private infrastructure, in a hybrid environment, or deploying to a public cloud, there are optimizations you can make in storage and availability that will improve the manageability and performance of your application and environment. Join this session to hear more about the end-to-end scale, performance, and availability improvements coming with Windows Server. We dive into deploying and managing storage using SMB shares, show the improved experience in everyday storage management such as deploying patches to the cloud, and share how to leverage faster live migration when responding to new load demands. Starting with Windows Server 2012, Microsoft offered a complete storage stack from the hardware up, leveraging commodity JBODs surfaced as Virtual Disks via Storage Spaces, hosted by Scale-Out File Server nodes and servicing client requests via SMB 3.0. Now, with major features added in Windows Server 2012 R2 (e.g., Storage Tiering and SMB Redirection), the story gets even better! As a critical piece in the Modern Datacenter (i.e., a Software-Defined Datacenter), SDS plays a crucial role in improving utilization and increasing cost efficiency, scalability, and elasticity. This session empowers you to architect, implement, and monitor this key capability. Come learn how to design, deploy, configure, and automate a storage solution based completely on Windows technologies, as well as how to troubleshoot and manage via the in-box stack and Microsoft System Center. Live demos galore!
Optimization is very hard topic which requires deep understanding of how underline system works. While every app is unique in its implementation, there are common areas that might improve app performance and memory usage in general. This especially true when apps were updated from previous versions on Windows. In this session, Mickey MacDonald talks about these common areas, how to optimize, and how to plan for low memory and hardware constraints.
Even though you're watching this on-demand, Mickey wants to help. Post your questions, comments, etc below or tweet it, mentioning @cdndevs.
In this interactive session, we create an application in C# and XAML. Upon building the app there are multiple areas we explore, however the choice of where this session leads is up to the audience. The application will be broken down into multiple scenarios and as the product owners you get to decide what we implement. Topics the users can choose from include using Sensors, Toast Notifications, User Information with Roaming Profiles, Live Tiles and Globalization, to name a few. This talk may require audience participation through the use of mobile devices.
