So this one day, I am playing the board game Quarto with my friend and I wonder, can this game end in a tie, or is there always a winner? Normal people might have squabbled or shrugged, but not us nerds! We obviously abandoned the game, took our laptops to the local pub and started hacking. In this talk I will explain how I used F# to transform this problem to satisfiability, ran it through a SAT solver to discover if it can indeed end in a tie. I will also show how to apply the same technique to more useful problems such as scheduling and code breaking.
Containers, unless you haven't heard, are a big thing. Docker, who have a strategic partnership with Microsoft, makes it incredibly easy to create, deploy and run applications using containers. Cassandra, a distributed and highly scalable NoSQL database, is well suited for containers. DataStax provide enterprise grade Cassandra as a platform and Instaclustr provide fully managed Cassandra-as-a-Service on Azure. In this session you'll gain an overview of containers and Docker, Microsoft's support of open orchestration APIs and the integration of Docker Hub and Azure. We'll discuss the merits and benefits of containers and how you can provision Docker on Azure. Finally, we will discuss how Instaclustr have built an offering on Azure using Docker and modern Linux technologies including systemd and journald.
Hyper-V ist ein Windows-System, also kennt der Windows-Admin es ja. Geht einfach und schnell.
Richtig? Richtig! Aber nur, wenn man es auch richtig macht. Es gibt ein paar Sachen, die man in der Servervirtualisierung mit Hyper-V falsch machen kann. Diese Session zeigt 10 Dinge, die Hyper-V übel nimmt - und die man daher besser anders löst. Ein Praxisvortrag für alle, die mit Hyper-V arbeiten oder es vorhaben.
