Cloud, on premise, and mobile applications are all increasingly using cloud storage. Azure Storage is a cloud storage service which provides scalability, durability, and accessibility over HTTP(S) from anywhere. Used properly, it can be a part of a highly performant application. In this presentation, we will discuss proven practices for achieving great performance in your application when using Azure Storage. Azure developers will learn not only about how to use Azure Storage (Blobs, Disks, Files, Tables, and Queues) efficiently, but how using Azure Storage can help their applications perform better and scale easier. On premise and mobile developers will learn key considerations for working with storage from outside of the Azure datacenter. This presentation will cover both specific, tactical practices that can be used to improve performance, and also general patterns that can be applied to application designs. Additionally, we will cover best practices and upcoming features for security when using Azure Storage. Speaker: Jeff Irwin
I had the privilege of talking with Lena at .NET Fringe about F# and MBrace. She is definitely a genius level software engineer (and I've met a lot). She takes us through using MBrace to distribute work across multiple machines using F#. If you'd like to learn more:
This is a first in a series of interviews I did at the brand new .NET Fringe Conference (more on this later with Glenn Block). It was essentially a conference about some of the great work happening in the OSS space for .NET. F# (and MBrace) form part of that great open source work being done by both Microsoft and the community at large. Let me know what you think!
