This session will introduce new features and roadmap for Visual Studio developers who want to deploy their Web, Mobile, and REST API applications to Azure App Service. We'll begin with the new provisioning experience and improved UI. We'll discuss the agility we've been able to achieve for one-off tooling experiences like the ASP.NET WebHooks tools and the API Management ingest tooling, built atop the Visual Studio Connected Service framework. We'll take a look at how Azure services like Redis Caching, Document DB, and Azure Storage can be used for infinite storage and performance capabilities. We'll take a look at the latest advances to Azure App Service like integrated CORS support and Swagger-based API Client generation, and use WebJobs to provide back-end processing power to your ASP.NET apps running in Azure.
