Learn how to leverage Windows PowerShell Desired State Configuration to operationalize “DevOps” capabilities on Azure. We start with the basics of PowerShell DSC working through the basic architecture, example uses and preventing “configuration drift.” We review DevOps principles and then apply those principles using PowerShell DSC over Azure to enable continuous deployment.
You already know the ingredients: Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V, Microsoft System Center, Microsoft Azure and Microsoft Visual Studio. Now, using real-world customer examples and a comprehensive demo, learn how to weave these technologies together into a practical, end-to-end, turnkey solution. The demo shows you how enterprise IT can create a secure, multi-tenant, policy-driven cloud that spans from your datacenter into Azure. You also learn how application owners and developers can use this cloud to deploy, manage and seamlessly move .NET and Java applications between private and public resources (without code changes!) using a solution from Apprenda and Microsoft.
This session focuses on management of Mac OS X clients and Linux/UNIX servers using System Center 2012 Configuration Manager. Join this session if your customers manage or plan to manage Mac or Linux clients in their environments.
Developing software solutions that work across several devices and platforms is becoming increasingly important. With that in mind, Visual Studio 2015 attempts to streamline sharing code across platforms in a number of ways. This video provides an overview Visual Studio 2015's new shared project type and how you can use it to share code across platforms. The video also briefly covers portable code libraries (PCLs) and shares best practices for choosing a code sharing strategy.
