When building solutions for the Cloud it is critical to understand that every architecture decision has even more impacts than before as a bad code might get you out of business. For this reason in this session we will be focusing on:
Breaking down the baseline concepts of Cloud design
Defining the critical considerations which we should have when designing new Cloud solutions
Looking at Architectural Patterns which can help us succeed in this space, like Microservices, CQRS and Event Sourcing
Looking at real life examples of Azure Cloud Architectures, the trade-offs and results
Lessons Learned Building Azure Solutions
The key goal of this session is to create awareness of what considerations, architectural patterns and trade-offs should be done in order to have successful Cloud solutions and even more specific to Azure solutions.
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.
We are excited to announce the new Azure Container Service, an open source container scheduling and orchestration service which builds on our partnerships with both Docker and Mesosphere, as well as our contributions to open source projects in this space. This service leverages both Docker and Apache Mesos in order to deliver an open source environment for running container workloads. Mesos already powers leading brands like Twitter, all of Apple's Siri, large parts of Airbnb, Netflix and OpenTable.
We've built the Azure Container Service in close collaboration with Mesosphere, using open source components from their DCOS offering including DCOS Marathon (for launching and scaling container based applications) and Chronos (for distributed cron and batch workloads). Additionally, many of our customers are excited to deploy Docker containers using Docker Swarm and Docker Compose. See Mark Russinovich, Azure CTO demo the new service in discussion with Benjamin Hindman, CTO and founder of Mesosphere.
