The Team Foundation Service at tfs.visualstudio.com brings together Microsoft Visual Studio, Team Foundation Server, and Windows Azure and now it's time to find out how to get started. In this session we begin by demonstrating creating an account, setting up team projects, tracking issues and working on a website project. We also discuss how Team Foundation Service differs from Team Foundation Server and what that means to you.
To create useful server environments, you need networks and storage. In this session, we'll cover the procedures required to create and manage both networks and storage in Windows Azure.
Speakers: Dan Stolts, Sr. Technical Evangelist, Microsoft Brian Lewis, Sr. Technical Evangelist, Microsoft

“The time has come,” the ISO said, “To talk of many things: Of move-capture—and literals— Of making lambdas sing— And why deduction is so hot— And if digits should grow wings?”
So have you heard of the next C++ Standard? No, it is not C++11. Even though C++11 has just been ratified, C++14 will likely replace C++11 by next year. By now, we have enough experience with C++11 to know where we are missing various fingers and toes such as:
Why do we not have move capture in lambdas?
How about some real user-defined literal suffixes?
Why did we stop with monomorphic lambdas?
If lambda returns can be deduced, why not normal functions?
Could we get digit separators?
C++14 will be more than a bug-fix release, and will contain some important enhancements on top of C++11. It will remove some of the major annoyances from C++11, that we already know of. But more importantly, how will this change the language, library and some important idioms?
