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.
SQL and .NET has been a favorite language for developers and DBAs for decades. However over the last couple of years, data processing is increasingly moving towards Big Data processing and is posing some new demands on not just scalability but also the ability to query late-structured data with custom algorithms. The new Azure Data Lake Analytics is introducing a new SQL-based language called U-SQL that combines the familiarity of SQL with new extensions for Big Data processing and easier user-extensibility. This session shows how to build big data solutions with U-SQL. You will learn how to integrate C# and .NET code to extend the power of U-SQL with C# Expressions.
The Maine Medical Center Imaging Informatics development team focuses on improving patient care by managing their records data and making them available while ensuring patient privacy. As Maine Medical Center went through the process of bring hospitals into their healthcare system, the team was challenged with the complexity of merging patient records, data integrity, and overall data security. With Microsoft® development technologies and the integrated developer tools created by PreEmptive Solutions, the Imaging Informatics team at Maine Medical Center was able to improve patient care by ensuring patient data was accurately migrated, secure, and available when and where they needed it.
