Web developers are seeing huge boosts in their productivity building Web Applications with ASP.NET, with so many huge improvements to Visual Studio focused on the problems web developers solve each day. We've also made some significant improvements in Microsoft Azure for web developers by concentrating on providing the community the best cloud in which to host ASP.NET web apps. Features like Auto-scaling and Traffic Management provide high-performance, internationally-distributed web hosting scenarios. We've made it easier than ever to add background processing by adding Azure WebJobs as an option for web developers who need to add a middle tier. Along with staging and production deployment slots, and a rich SDK to enable service automation - a feature many software-as-a-service apps can use to automate their provisioning and deployment experiences - there's no better place than Microsoft Azure Web Sites to host your ASP.NET apps. Kudu offers Web Sites customers a set of extensions that offer an extensible addition to the Azure Management Portal that has extensions in it from external contributors and Microsoft engineers who contribute to a growing list of functionality each site can exploit. This session will introduce these and other features with Web Sites, and demonstrate how it is the best choice in the cloud for ASP.NET.

В этом докладе обсуждается то, как можно с детства приобщить ребенка к компьютерному дизайну, построению искусственных миров и основам программирования. Мы покажем среду Kodu Game Lab, которая уже несколько лет используется для обучения детей программированию, а также следующее поколение таких инструментов – конструктор виртуальных миров и игр Project Spark. Автор доклада поделится своим опытом использования этих инструментов в преподавании в детском ИТворческом лагере JUNIO-R и КомпьютериЯ.
It is day 2 of the Imagine Cup World Finals and the heat is on! It is the first day of competitions with the start of the live presentations.
