ASP.NET vNext is a lean and composable framework for building web and cloud applications. ASP.NET vNext is fully open source and available on GitHub. ASP.NET vNext is currently in preview, and in this talk Fowler and Edwards will put it all into Context. vNext apps can use a cloud-optimized subset of the .NET framework. This subset of the framework is about 11 megabytes in size compared to 200 megabytes for the full framework, and is composed of a collection of NuGet packages. What does that mean for compatibility? When would you choose vNext and when would you not? You don't have to use Visual Studio to develop ASP.NET vNext applications. You can develop and run vNext on platforms that Visual Studio doesn't run on. But Visual Studio provides the best development experience, and we'll cover ASP.NET vNext both inside and outside the IDE.
Visual Studio 2013 and the Windows Azure 2.2 SDK provide a rich set of features for diagnosing and troubleshooting Windows Azure Applications. In this video you'll see how to use this new debugging capability through the entire development lifecycle of a cloud application, from the local developer environment all the way through a deployed site on Windows Azure
In this session will take a look at how we protect our VM's and make sure they are resilient. We will take a look at local backup, Windows Azure backup and Hyper-V replication. We will also take a look a brief look at System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM). As your infrastructure grows, and you want to start managing many Hyper-V hosts at scale, and want to take advantage of more advanced deployment options and capabilities. SCVMM plays a very important role, and in this session you get an introduction to this tool
In preparation for the event, we recommend that you download the free, full-featured version of Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2012 R2 as well these other free evaluations available for download:
