Keeping track of all the various resources used by a solution is a daunting task. Azure Resource Manager enables you to group multiple resources into a single logical group. With the ability to save the group as a template, we can reuse it for future solutions. In this session we'll explore how the Azure Resource Manager can be used to better manage our Azure solutions. We'll dive deep into creating resources and manipulating the Resource Manager templates. In the end, you'll be able to unlock new, powerful ways to manage your Azure resources.
SharePoint 2013 is not just a collection of lists and libraries anymore. It is a big product with lots of built-in out of the box services. We as SharePoint developers used to build a lot on the top of SharePoint, but with rapidly growing product functionality, there is less need for developing custom code. In fact there is more need for consultants that they know SharePoint out of the box services and features and they also know how to configure and use them. The new generation of SharePoint architects, have deep understanding of built-in services and their limits so that they can decide whether to develop custom code or just enable a built-in Service. This approach makes SharePoint development quick and dramatically reduces the cost of maintenance and support.
