DNN's "Evoq in the Cloud" service delivers DNN Evoq applications via Windows Azure. The service uses Windows Azure Table Storage, Message Queues and Web Worker roles to handle provisioning and maintenance of their customer sites. DNN developed a 'Device Pool,' where deployed devices are kept ready to be assigned to customers. Once a customer creates an account, the device is assigned to the customer and 30 seconds later, the customer has their new website or community platform, fully installed and ready to go. In this session David Rodriguez, DNN Cloud Team Lead Engineer, will share their DNN Cloud Services implementation details and how they architect the final solution on Windows Azure Platform.
PowerShell is the preferred tool for it-administrators for managing servers and environments. Using the built-in PowerShell cmdlets that come with CRM 2011 and adding some new ones we can easily manipulate CRM servers and design deployment processes that fit out needs. In this session I will walk though some of the cmdlets that we have created for the purpose and demonstrate the power of scripted deployment. I will also demonstrate the tools we have created manipulating and moving data as part of the deployment process. TFS is an essential brick in the puzzle about agile development in the .net environment. I will briefly touch some of the almost endless possibilities we have when using TFS, PowerShell and CRM together. We will also take a look at the SolutionPackager from the SDK.
Windows Azure Media Services (WAMS) provides a cloud-based platform for media encoding, transcoding and content protection as well as on-demand and live streaming capabilities. In this video, we’ll walk through how to use Visual Studio to upload a video file and prepare it for streaming with WAMS, and we’ll provide demos that show you how to upload, encode, and use dynamic packaging to deliver video content.
A look at many of the new features in C++ and a couple of old features you may not have known about. With the goal of correctness in mind, we’ll see how to utilize these features to create simple, clear, and beautiful code. Just a little pinch can really spice things up.
