This session will discuss some of the recent advancements in #azure IaaS that have significantly widened the choices available to developers and IT Pros alike. Developers can remote debug an IaaS VM and run Windows and non-Windows workloads. IT Pros can take advantage of advanced networking features, use rich CLI tools and use a single pane of glass management across Azure and on-premises resources.
Modern mobile devices and smartphones are reaching the computing capabilities reserved until recently for desktop PCs. Windows 10 phones and tablets with 8 CPUs and very powerful GPUs are expected soon. Despite significant progress in reducing power consumption these devices are able to draw more power under sustained load than can be safely dissipated with current passive cooling technologies. Windows 10 and the hardware it runs on are designed to safely handle such situations, mostly by reducing the system performance — which could affect game-play negatively. Learn to counter this effect by designing games that achieve sustained thermal-to-quality tradeoffs in these systems.
