Modern application development requires asynchronous programming techniques. For C++, this generally involves using libraries employing promises or futures or tasks, a la PPL and std::future. What about adding 'await' to the C++ language itself? It's clear that 'await' has done wonders for C#. What would it look like for C++? How does it work? This detailed walkthrough will show the benefits of using ‘await’ vs. PPL or std::future, dig into it's implementation in VC++, and explain the differences between C++ await and C# await.
In the new scenarios where cloud is getting used, integration becomes very important. Luckily, the Windows Azure platform provides a lot of different capabilities and services to make a secure link between your local systems and the Windows Azure services or machines. In this session, an overview will be give of the different technologies and the scenarios to which these technologies are best applicable. The following technologies will be demonstrated and discussed: * Connectivity on messaging level: Service Bus Messaging * Connectivity on service level: Service Bus Relay * Connectivity on data level: SQL Data Sync * Connectivity on network level: Windows Azure Virtual Networking * Connectivity on security level: Active Directory integration
