With just 5 years to go until The Future™ officially starts in 2020, it's time to pull on your lycra-and-tinfoil onesie, pick out the colour of your hovercar, and consider the technologies you'll use for your upcoming web projects. Thanks to a temporal wormhole triggered by a freak SharePoint misconfiguration, I can exclusively reveal the architecture of a web app designed several years in the future. Some of it is predictable ES6/7 stuff - web components, shadow DOM, etc. - but then it gets into metaprogramming, cross-compilation from native code, advanced parallelism techniques, layout *without* CSS, and more. In this demo-centric session I'll show you each of these likely upcoming web technologies. Most of them are impossible (or at least downright irresponsible) to use in production web apps today, but seeing them in action will give you a sense of the possibilities that may soon open up.
The modern world IT is often about bigger, faster cheaper. Although we still need to support and develop traditional solutions, the modern business places demands on IT which many organisations struggle to deliver. In this session Mike will talk about some real world examples where Microsoft Azure has been used to empower IT to deliver great solutions in the sprinter side of this 2 speed IT model. Mike will also show how Azure & Minecraft was used at a UK based university to demonstrate the art of the possible when adopting the cloud.
The Microsoft Operations Management Suite (OMS) came just around the corner as the new kid on the block but it is already traveling through the monitoring space at hyperspeed as seen by the vast majority of new features released!

Buckle up and embark for the ride of your life!
