Virtualisation, Cloud and Modern Storage have pushed the expectations of application availability to new heights. Our users expect every application to be available from every device at any time and from anywhere regardless of circumstance! Join us for a deep dive discussion and learn how Veeam and Microsoft have pushed the envelope of availability with industry disruptive technologies like: Cloud Connect for Microsoft Azure; Instant VM Recovery for Hyper-V; App to Metal visibility with Microsoft System Center and Veeam MP; Application level data protection with the Veeam Explorers; and Veeam and StorSimple for on-premises to Azure data archiving.
This was a fun one! I spent some time with Jimmy Bogard on his tremendously successful open source project called AutoMapper. If you have not heard of it then you have no doubt, like me, wasted precious keystrokes on manually converting from one object type to another by mapping properties in code. AutoMapper helps eliminate the need for that completely and goes a step further by even making queries to a database more compact and concise.
He also spends some time talking about what makes for great open source projects - oddly enough its not what I thought he would say.
By definition, an app written on the Universal Windows Platform can run across many Windows device families, but this covers an extremely wide range of different hardware capabilities (especially to memory and CPU). If you want your app to be successful on all devices, you need to pay attention to these variations, and tune your app’s features dynamically. This talk will explain how the system applies memory and CPU resource policy, and provides insights into the underlying rationale and internal mechanisms. We’ll also see how the new API surface gives you the tools to make your app successful in the face of widely varying hardware constraints. Speaker: Andrew Whitechapel.
