Noah will provide an overview of storage in Windows Azure, including how to store, access, manage, and secure data in Azure. Noah will talk about how to use Windows Azure Storage in traditional applications as well as how to design applications using "cloud thinking".
Speaker: Noah Benedict Managing Consultant, Catapult Systems
Cloud, social and proliferation of devices have changed the way we work, collaborate and manage our tasks and projects. During this keynote Jared will talk about Microsoft's vision for business productivity & project management, share industry trends and provide insights into how Microsoft is thinking about future product investments. A career software professional, Jared’s experience includes roles in engineering, product management, product marketing, and sales. He holds an MBA from the MIT Sloan School of Management and a BS in computer science from Brigham Young University.
Last year I described C++ as bearing the cautionary label ‘Here Be Dragons.’ And yet we’re all still writing C++ because it is the best programming language for the problems we face. In turn, we need a strategy to deal with the “dragons” that reside in large C++ code bases. The Dragon Book (my old compiler textbook) taught about a collection of tools to address the complexity of compiler design, and while our challenge is somewhat different, the approach remains the same. When a mere mortal programmer ventures forth to battle the complexity of large software systems in C++, they’re going to need some really good tools to help them. At Google, we’ve been building up a platform of such tools. I will introduce the platform and toolset, and show how to use them to write fast and correct C++ code, quickly and correctly.
I will also give a peek into the future of the next generation of tools we’re working on and some of the really interesting changes to C++ that are coming in the next few years to help both programmers and these tools be ever more effective.
Discover how changes in Internet Explorer 11, including the IE 11 user-agent string, will help sites "just work" while running more modern code. Gain insight into the risks of browser detection, how it influences IE 11, and alternative approaches you can use to build more robust sites. Finally, explore tools that simplify testing for IE and identify which platform changes are relevant to your code.
