Richard Conway and Andy Cross, Azure MVPs from Elastacloud, take you on a tour de force of Big Data as a workload and the available services on Azure for supporting them. The session begins with introductory outlining of IaaS, PaaS and SaaS offerings; from the complexities and power of building a Linux IaaS cluster to the simplicity and bounded capabilities of Cloud Services via HDInsight. The session will continue to give hands on examples of HDInsight, the Hadoop on Azure service and will conclude with a demonstration of Machine Learning with the new AzureML service.
Built with Web technologies, Apps for Office are a new class of add-in customization for Office 2013 and Office 365. In this video, we will go through the full workflow of building an app for Office with Visual Studio, from creating the app and debugging it across multiple Office applications to publishing it onto Windows Azure.
Testability is more important than ever. With short ship cycles and the desire for continuous delivery, it is critical to quickly know if a modification has destabilized your code base. This session will enable you to use a dependency injection container of your choice to create testable code. We will examine tightly coupled code and what problems it causes and how DI can be used to avoid these problems. The Unity DI container will be used as the medium to understand the concepts.
