Balancing the agility of development with the delivery of a consistent, repeatable and timely infrastructure from Ops has proven to be one of the toughest hurdles to cross for any organisation focusing on adopting a true DevOps mantra. With Server 2016, Microsoft is introducing both Windows Containers, and providing us with the ability to host an Azure consistent environment in our Data Center. Independently or combined these technologies provide the platform to address the challenges faced with operations through the concepts of 'Infrastructure as Code' and 'Software Defined Data Centres'. Join us, to learn why these technologies matter, how they help to deliver the infrastructure of DevOps, and to see first-hand how to leverage the developer's tool belt of Visual Studio, GIT and Release Management; adding infrastructure as just another project within our solution.
Dieser Vortrag zeigt nicht den "üblichen" RSS Reader, sondern stellt die verschiedenen APIs der Windows-Plattform in einer Demo der etwas anderen Art vor. Geboten wird jede Menge an Inspiration und Ideen für App-Entwickler und ihre kommenden Projekte.
