Live Code Analyzers are used to add custom error messages and warnings that appear live as you're typing, along with automatic code fixes to help you clean them up. They are available as NuGet packages that you add to your projects in Visual Studio 2015. In this video, you'll see how the FxCop analyzer package now helps you improve your code even before you build. You'll also see the Azure Code Analysis package, which teaches you best practices for building Azure apps by spotting bugs the moment you introduce them.
Move beyond the conceptual overview of external data and business connectivity services with a practical implementation. See an external data source configured from scratch and examples of practical uses of the information within SharePoint, including external lists, external data columns, and search. Learn how a source database with millions of rows of data can be added to SharePoint and used easily. This session provides more than a basic overview, with high enough level to cover multiple scenarios of general use.
When you scale your applications, distributed cache is a must-have tool. Microsoft Azure Managed Caching and Redis Cache are the newest dedicated distributed cache solutions for Azure, but they are not the only option. In this session we will explore the caching options available to us in Microsoft Azure, including some non-MS solutions, such as Memcached and Couchbase. We will compare features, availability, deployment strategies, and of course, performance.
