SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT) is an evolving product. Besides revamping database projects this product has also changed the lifecycle in which we receive new features. In this session we demonstrate features such as database snapshots, localdb, and database unit testing. Most importantly, we show the many benefits of the Publish feature, and why you will want to use the built-in refactoring instead of just renaming objects. Throughout this presentation we also highlight and demonstrate the features that have been added to SSDT in the past year.
In Windows 8 and Windows 8.1, the gesture recognizer makes it easy to incorporate the touch language into your app. But what do you do when you need to go above and beyond the built-in gesture set? From this talk you’ll learn how to expand on the touch language to personalize gestures for your unique scenarios. We’ll show you how to: use the Windows Runtime gesture recognizer APIs; build custom effects by overriding elements of a dynamic gesture; Create gestures that integrate well with the touch language and the principles of gesture targeting; and ensure that your gestures are highly responsive by using SwapChainPanel and ICoreInput APIs.
This session is based on but not limited to a true story at a large customer. We assume the participants have working knowledge of SharePoint 2013, SQL Server 2012 and Windows Azure, and we'll concentrate on all the non-core technologies that are essential for a successful BI project on Azure. We'll review storage, networking, Kerberos delegation, the BI components of SQL Server and their placement inside of a SharePoint farm, availability, and the management and the possible re-use of the items of a farm.
