The decisions you make during the design phase of an Azure solution tend to stick with you as you gain momentum delivering features. If you have a green field application, you have the luxury of weighing those decisions up front. If you are brown field - understanding the choices may help you lead to a migration path that creates efficiencies for you later on. In this session, Michele will explore decisions related to the various PaaS and IaaS features of the platform. Why would you choose a Web App over Virtual Machines? Do you need API management? When is SQL Server or Azure SQL Database appropriate? Should you use Web Jobs or Worker Roles for async and scheduled tasks? How do you choose between Service Bus queues, topics or event hubs? Is Azure AD the right fit for your identity requirements? All this in just one session - you may need a coffee first!
Do you want to be a cool secret agent and command your app just with your voice? Do you want to enable your users to quickly use your app while hands free or while doing other tasks. Meet Cortana, ready to do your bidding (or tell you a bad joke). Your personal assistant Cortana is inhabiting more devices and more platforms. She is even "speaking Aussie" on Australian devices and helps with making sure you get to work on time, don't miss your flight and whether you should wear a coat tomorrow. But did you know she can also be customised to work in your app?
This session discusses the different ways that you can deploy and use Windows Server Work Folders to gain oversight of IW corporate data.
