When transitioning your skillset from on-premises to a more hybrid cloud environment, you have to also transition your management techniques from GUI and One-Off solutions to a more reproducible Automated environment. Learn the ins and outs of Azure Automation Services and the new Automation Script Gallery. Leverage existing scrips or publish your own for others to use in their environments. Looking to take this to the next level – bring in some new DesiredStateConfiguration skills to standardize, configure and maintain your deployments at scale in the cloud.
In this session, Sam will give an overview of the new Hybrid Connections feature. With this feature, customers can easily connect their cloud services with their existing on premises resources. Sam will demonstrate the various capabilities of this new service and will discuss the advanced features, such as load balancing, Always On connectivity, connection cardinality, automation and performance.
Xamarin.Forms abstracts UI definition into cross platform Xaml, with all controls rendered natively across iOS, Android and Windows Phone. In this session you will learn how define a multi-platform UI once for each of these platforms, binding to data stored in a local DB using the Mvvm pattern, and synchronising to the cloud using Azure Mobile Services. Learn when it is necessary to dive into platform specific code and how to go about this in code and in xaml.
Visual Studio Online Application Insights solves the age-old problem of collecting enough data to enable developers to diagnose their issues but not so much as to impact production capacity. In this video, we'll focus on setting up Application Insights and Microsoft Monitoring Agent in connected scenarios. In these scenarios, Application Insights will monitor event data, analyze it for categories of issues, display (down to the specific line of code) the source of the issue, monitor memory usage for leak detection and output memory snapshots and IntelliTrace logs that can be analyzed using Visual Studio 2013.
