This session demonstrates how a new class of scenarios and user experiences can be enabled by re-imagining solutions using cloud-based technology and Apps for Office. Learn how to make cloud-based line-of-business applications which include Apps for Office in Microsoft Word, Excel, and Outlook, and also how to supplement them with Office 365 SharePoint web sites, Windows Phone 8 apps, notifications, and Azure Web Sites and SQL Databases. See an extremely polished end-to-end demo scenario unfold, related to idea generation, qualification, selection, development, and evaluation. Learn how all the components in the demo are built, what patterns are used to implement them, and have a lot of fun along the way. This session also has a little bit of March Madness flavor baked into it which will provide an entertaining and enlightening experience.
Configuring a development environment, including a version control repository and build environment, can be complicated and time consuming. Using Visual Studio Online, you can go from zero to online in just 40 minutes! Developers will love just how quick and easy getting started really is. In this demo-heavy session, we start from scratch and quickly build up a solution using Microsoft Visual Studio, Team Foundation Server, and Microsoft Azure. We'll store our code in an enterprise-class repository, configure both automated build and automated release and have our new application running on Microsoft Azure all during this session. Some of the objectives I have for this session include; a) Showing the audience how you can go from zero to online business in 40 minutes or less b) Use Visual Studio Online to store our source code c) Configure an automated build and automated release to Microsoft Azure
You might have heard about containerization technologies like Docker that allow you to achieve greater density and better performance than traditional full-fledged IaaS Virtual Machines. We recently announced support for Docker on Azure and all the goodness that it brings to your solutions. How should an IT Implementer / SysAdmin deploy and leverage this new technology? This session will tell you everything you need to know.
