If you're building an app, chances are you want to monetize that app to bring you an additional income. There are different ways you can monetize your apps, and in this session, Matthew talks about them, compares them one to another and highlights the best scenarios for you to get the more revenue out of your app. He also describes how to expand your app's reach through localizing it to multiple languages, the tools available for you to do so, and best practices using those tools. Matt also shows you how to make it easy for the user to say nice things about your app, how to deal with user issues in a way that has the users singing your praises, and lastly, how to create a buzz for your application.
Even though you're watching this on-demand, Matthew wants to help. Post your questions, comments, etc below or tweet it, mentioning @cdndevs.
Even though the cloud provides elastic scale and seemingly infinite resources, you still have to design, monitor and tune performance. Microsoft Azure SQL Database has architectural differences from SQL Server and understanding how these can impact performance is critical. In this session, Microsoft Azure MVP, Eric D. Boyd, will show you how you can identify bottlenecks and the cause of performance problems in SQL Database. This session will introduce you to the tools you can use to investigate throttling, connection events and resources, and poorly performing queries such as dynamic management objects (DMVs and DMFs) and cloud-based tools in Microsoft Azure. You will also learn how to appropriately handle throttling in your applications and scale by partitioning databases.
We live in a world of heterogeneous devices. In this session we’ll discuss the pros and cons of a number of strategies for producing cross-platform applications. Starting with HTML, moving through hybrid apps up to native apps, Mitch will explain the architectural patterns of each approach and explore the use-cases in which each approach is most appropriate. At the end of this session you’ll be much better equipped to decide on the best strategy for internal, B2B and B2C applications that need to be available to the entire audience, regardless of the device they use.
