As Internet of Things (IoT) becomes part of the fabric of your digital business, organizations are realizing the need to connect different devices to cloud services and applications. The Azure IoT Suite is an integrated offering that takes advantage of all the relevant Azure capabilities to connect devices, capture the data generated, integrate and orchestrate the flow of that data, and manage, analyze and present it as usable information. This broad spectrum requires a flexible connectivity model in the cloud to enable architects and developers to securely provision their data sources. In this session you will learn how the Azure IoT Suite helps you securely connect millions of Linux, RTOS, iOS, Android and Windows devices to reliably send telemetry and receive commands from your application back-end in the cloud.

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.
