This session is all about making the switch from programmatic infrastructure deployment ("Dear Azure, here's a list of everything I want you do, in excruciating detail"), to declarative end-state deployment ("Dear Azure, here's what I want it to look like - go, make it happen"). Azure Resource Manager enables us to define what we want our infrastructure end-state to look like using template-driven deployment. In this session we will drill deep into Azure Resource Manager and templates, and deploy live solutions.
Azure enables you to develop and test applications faster, at reduced cost, and with the flexibility to deploy in the cloud or on-premises. This video provides an overview of the preconfigured development environments available and the different ways to provision those environments in Azure. In addition we'll take a deeper look at our developer images for MSDN subscribers, which are preconfigured with Visual Studio to decrease the provision and set up time of a development environment even further.
In this episode you'll get to explore the cross-platform mobile strategy we took with the project, and how we built our app using Apache Cordova framework, just once, with it working on any device a volunteer would want to use. We also dive deeper into how Visual Studio 2015 enabled us to build this app quickly and easily, along with how we took advantage of our own (free) Android emulator and other cool debugging experiences.
We'll end the episode with a tour of the mobile app we made over the 3-day event, with all source code available now on GitHub: https://github.com/htbox/
