Enterprise mobility is a top priority for Chief Information Officers who must empower employees and reach customers by moving data from backend systems out to apps on mobile devices. This data must flow over inefficient wireless data networks, be consumable by any mobile device, and scale to support millions of users while delivering exceptional performance. Since wireless coverage is inconsistent, apps must store this data offline so users can be productive in the absence of connectivity. Join Rob and learn how to build fast and scalable REST + JSON APIs using the ASP.NET Web API while employing techniques such as data sharing and in-memory caching. On the device, learn how your apps can work with offline data via in-memory NoSQL tables that use LINQ to support the same CRUD operations as relational databases. You’ll walk away from this session with the ability to deliver flexible server solutions that work on-premise or in Azure and device solutions that work with Windows Phones and Tablets.
In this report, we shall consider a new component in Azure—Azure Resource Manager—which allows you to work with your application as a whole, rather than as a collection of disparate services and components. In addition, Azure Resource Manager allows tagging of resources and performs automatic application deployment in a development or test environment, as well as provides for dependency tracking for settings and resources in these environments.
Windows Azure Web Sites provide a simple and economical means of deploying your Web applications to Windows Azure, with the ability to upgrade to Azure Cloud Services when and if you’re ready. In this video, we will walk through how to get started building and hosting Windows Azure Web Sites with Visual Studio 2013.
