SQL and .NET has been a favorite language for developers and DBAs for decades. However over the last couple of years, data processing is increasingly moving towards Big Data processing and is posing some new demands on not just scalability but also the ability to query late-structured data with custom algorithms. The new Azure Data Lake Analytics is introducing a new SQL-based language called U-SQL that combines the familiarity of SQL with new extensions for Big Data processing and easier user-extensibility. This session shows how to build big data solutions with U-SQL. You will learn how to integrate C# and .NET code to extend the power of U-SQL with C# Expressions.
Enabling existing .NET (and other Win32) desktop applications to become part of the Universal Windows Platform (UWP) ecosystem is a key part of the Windows 10 vision. This session will cover in detail the technologies that will enable you to convert your desktop application to a UWP app. We'll demonstrate how to take advantage of UWP features to further enhance your .NET desktop apps.
