В докладе будет описан вариант гибкого подхода к разработке пользовательской документации на программный продукт, который позволяет исключить стандартные проблемы технических писателей и менеджеров: накопление долга по документированию уже реализованного функционала, сложность актуализации и тестирования документации, а также планирования и отслеживания работ технических писателей. Будет представлена не только идея, но и демонстрация ее внедрения в одной кроссфункциональной команде на основе программных продуктов Microsoft TeamFoundation Server, Microsoft Word и TeamSolutions TeamSpec.
Analysts predict that there will be anywhere from 24 to 200 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Imagine every device as an object that is capable of exchanging voluntary information about itself and its environment as well as executing commands via APIs to act on their environments. What's more, the analytical insights gleaned from this data will have the potential to transform existing business while creating new ones. The Internet of Things is here, and the heterogeneity of devices, messaging considerations, security constraints, volume of data and compute requirements are significant. In this talk, seven-time MVP and Microsoft Azure MVP Rick G. Garibay will provide a deep dive into the various ways in which devices can be connected today and how a service-assisted communication model is really key to tackling the myriad of constraints that exist today. We'll explore the strengths and weaknesses of various communication models and application protocols and how the Azure Reykjavik Device Gateway Accelerator addresses your needs today while providing the extensibility and scale to meet your needs as your IoT strategy grows. You'll learn how to get up and running on your Azure subscription with the Master and Partition roles, how to register a device and flow telemetry, inquires, commands and notifications through the Reykjavik fabric leveraging Azure Storage, HD Insight along with a look at how you can extend the fabric with custom protocol gateway and telemetry adapters.
Today we are able to see a clear shift in how enterprises are targeted by malware engineers. The attack landscape has adapted to the new world and they now perform targeted attacks, especially over the social networks. Because guess what? The CEO, CTO, or even the girl next door has a social network account. Join this session and explore how social engineering has grown over time and examine lessons learned from the field on how to best mitigate those traps.
SharePoint consultants and developers work in projects, and most SharePoint environments are large. As a best practice, the development and test environments should be as equal as possible to the production environment. In reality, SharePoint development and test environments are not as equal as possible. Based on Microsoft Azure Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), we have a chance to get the environment as equal as possible and to speed up projects and reduce project cost from planning through final deployment of hardware requirements on production environments. Consultants can act faster, or shall we say "very fast". This session demonstrates how to use the Microsoft Azure Management Portal, Windows PowerShell or Microsoft System Center to manage many environments like SharePoint farms in Azure and to deploy the 1-n farms via script, to manage more than 100 cores and terra bytes of VHDs on-demand. Learn how to scale your SharePoint environment up and down, and switch off all resources to scale based on your needs on-demand. Learn to load test on-demand in SharePoint on Azure, for better quality in your production environment. At the end of the Session, you'll understand the latest thinking on Infrastructure as a Service for SharePoint, and the difference from standard hosting. We also discuss how to design a SharePoint Farm for Azure IaaS for Scale-up/-down, and out and off. Focusing on SharePoint and SQL Server and BI, we demonstrate the mechanism to enroll large environments in minutes and to bring them into a very low-cost state for non-business hours, based on demand. With this thinking, IT environments like SharePoint are designed for high availability. At the end of session you'll see the cloud and Azure from a new perspective, and see that hosting is not all the time 24x7, with high availability.
