Windows Azure enables you to develop and test applications faster, at reduced cost, and with the flexibility to deploy in the cloud or on-premises. Visual Studio 2013 is the best IDE for cloud development and test – and enables powerful scenarios including running Visual Studio in Azure hosted Virtual Machines, and the ability to manage cloud resources right from the IDE. In this video we'll review in detail what Windows Azure offers for MSDN Subscribers, how to take advantage of pre-configured virtual machines, and go through demos such as how to use PowerShell to setup and later clean-up a Windows Azure test environment.
Identity and security is becoming an increasingly important capability required by developers and organizations when building modern applications and services. In addition to that, we are expected to deliver across a large and expanding set of devices and operating systems. As developers we need tools and resources to natively address each individual platform in an effective and robust manner. With Azure Active Directory, we have access to a feature-rich platform that helps us on our journey to achieve that. In this session (intended for developers) you will learn how to use Azure Active Directory to easily secure your solutions – regardless of which platform or programming language that makes you tick!
