This is a HARDCORE session designed to stretch, challenge, and entertain even an expert in the field. Windows debugging and Windows internals is something you can never really master, and everyone has new techniques. We showcase the latest innovations and approaches in troubleshooting for Windows, diving deep under the covers of Windows and how it's changing for 8.1. Our goal is to give even experts in the field new techniques—even if you are a hardened veteran—to help you solve problems more quickly and better understand how Windows works.
When you scale your applications, distributed cache is a must-have tool. Microsoft Azure Managed Caching and Redis Cache are the newest dedicated distributed cache solutions for Azure, but they are not the only option. In this session we will explore the caching options available to us in Microsoft Azure, including some non-MS solutions, such as Memcached and Couchbase. We will compare features, availability, deployment strategies, and of course, performance.
