How can your game take advantage of the broad reach of multiple form factors shipping with Windows 10, and provide the best experiences to your target audiences? Can a one-size-fits-all design approach succeed or should you tailor the experience to each device? We will discuss and demonstrate the design implications of Windows Core game development scenarios from casual to AAA games, as well as some common pitfalls with an appropriate checklist to mitigate concerns around legibility, input schemes and content density. This talk also examines user engagement expectations and how to map usability goals to user trends for each device.
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.
Join this session for a journey through the lifecycle of a Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) 5.0 package. From the birth of a sequenced package through deployment, streaming, configuration, updates, connection groups, user customization and eventual termination. This session is based solely on stand-alone mode, demo-driven, behind-the-scenes views of how each part of the application lifecycle is handled by the App-V Client. No ties to Configuration Manager or Full Infrastructure, just an under the hood insight into how App-V applications are handled regardless of delivery mechanisms.
