Enterprise mobility is a top priority for Chief Information Officers who must empower employees and reach customers by moving data from backend systems out to apps on mobile devices. This data must flow over inefficient wireless data networks, be consumable by any mobile device, and scale to support millions of users while delivering exceptional performance. Since wireless coverage is inconsistent, apps must store this data offline so users can be productive in the absence of connectivity. Join Rob and learn how to build fast and scalable REST + JSON APIs using the ASP.NET Web API while employing techniques such as data sharing and in-memory caching. On the device, learn how your apps can work with offline data via in-memory NoSQL tables that use LINQ to support the same CRUD operations as relational databases. You’ll walk away from this session with the ability to deliver flexible server solutions that work on-premise or in Azure and device solutions that work with Windows Phones and Tablets.
There was a ton of news this week about SharePoint all up (on-premises, online, and hybrid), and you may still have some open questions, or just want to hear it all in a summary form. This is a forum session that begins with a 10-minute recap of all the news, and then opens up to a full-blown Q&A session with one of our lead SharePoint senior product managers, Mark Kashman, and anyone he can pull in from the rest of the team. Think of this as the "Ask the SharePoint Experts" to catch all your final, open SharePoint questions.
