Do you want to create automated tests for your Windows Phone apps? With Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 Update 2 you can now create automated tests for your XAML-based Windows Phone apps. Starting from unit tests to functional end-to-end scenario tests, you can now perform all of your testing from the integrated Test Explorer in Visual Studio. These tests are seamlessly integrated with the automated build capabilities of Team Foundation Server. You now have the tools to build a gated check-in workflow or a continuous integration system easily. The testing framework is extensible and developers can customize it to meet the specialized needs of their application. In this session, we show you how to build comprehensive test suites for your Windows Phone apps by leveraging these Visual Studio capabilities, set up systems to prevent regressions, and overall ship a great quality app.
IP address configuration, domain join, computer rename, firewall configuration, network configuration testing, role and feature install, virtual machine creation. There are a large number of everyday tasks that server administrators still do with the GUI out of habit, even though there are faster ways to accomplish the same things in PowerShell. In this session we'll show you a number of single line PowerShell commands that you can use to replace systems administration tasks that you still perform using the GUI because you've been doing it that way since the days of Windows NT.
Web developers are seeing huge boosts in their productivity building Web Applications with ASP.NET, with so many huge improvements to Visual Studio focused on the problems web developers solve each day. We've also made some significant improvements in Microsoft Azure for web developers by concentrating on providing the community the best cloud in which to host ASP.NET web apps. Features like Auto-scaling and Traffic Management provide high-performance, internationally-distributed web hosting scenarios. We've made it easier than ever to add background processing by adding Azure WebJobs as an option for web developers who need to add a middle tier. Along with staging and production deployment slots, and a rich SDK to enable service automation - a feature many software-as-a-service apps can use to automate their provisioning and deployment experiences - there's no better place than Microsoft Azure Web Sites to host your ASP.NET apps. Kudu offers Web Sites customers a set of extensions that offer an extensible addition to the Azure Management Portal that has extensions in it from external contributors and Microsoft engineers who contribute to a growing list of functionality each site can exploit. This session will introduce these and other features with Web Sites, and demonstrate how it is the best choice in the cloud for ASP.NET.
