Windows makes it easy to connect to your hardware via a single driver that can be leveraged on phones, tablets, PCs, IoT devices and servers. You will learn concepts of Windows driver development and understand an easy entry path to get started connecting hardware to Windows. We will show you different driver models and help you understand the best choice for your needs. By the end of this session you will be able to get started building drivers for Windows 10 devices, as well as other platforms, and have a solid understanding of Windows driver development concepts. Topics include: Overview of Windows Driver concepts and models, Introduction of Windows Driver Framework and its benefits, How to build a Windows Driver that runs on any Windows device, and Walkthrough of designing and building a simple device driver. Intended Audience: OEMs, ODMs, IDHs, IHVs, Peripheral Manufacturers, Driver Developers.
Your infrastructure in Azure can be isolated and purpose built for public consumption. How do you design your virtual networks and access controls to ensure everything is as desired? Now that you understand the fundamentals of Virtual Networks in Azure, let's dive deeper into hybrid connectivity options using Site to Site VPNs, allowing your datacenter to extend to your Azure environment. Concerned about speed and latency for your applications? Don't want your internal data being routed over the public internet? Explore what ExpressRoute can offer as the ultimate connectivity option.
Cloud, on premise, and mobile applications are all increasingly using cloud storage. Azure Storage is a cloud storage service which provides scalability, durability, and accessibility over HTTP(S) from anywhere. Used properly, it can be a part of a highly performant application. In this presentation, we will discuss proven practices for achieving great performance in your application when using Azure Storage. Azure developers will learn not only about how to use Azure Storage (Blobs, Disks, Files, Tables, and Queues) efficiently, but how using Azure Storage can help their applications perform better and scale easier. On premise and mobile developers will learn key considerations for working with storage from outside of the Azure datacenter. This presentation will cover both specific, tactical practices that can be used to improve performance, and also general patterns that can be applied to application designs. Additionally, we will cover best practices and upcoming features for security when using Azure Storage. Speaker: Jeff Irwin
