By its nature, SQL Server installations on-prem can often require significant CapEx investment on a recurring basis. If you are considering the cloud then you want to ensure that you have received the maximum return from that investment before you switch to a fully OpEx model. Hybrid solutions can let you scale and migrate your SQL Server workloads into Azure while still getting the maximum return from your on-prem infrastructure.
In this episode you'll get an overview of how this project took advantage of the cloud with Microsoft Azure and was built using ASP.NET 5. We'll explore the details of how Azure was used in the applications architecture, and then jump into the details of the web site itself including discussions around Entity Framework 7, web site optimization, responsive UX design and much more.
We'll end the episode with a tour of the web site we made over the 3-day event, with all source code available now on GitHub: https://github.com/htbox/
