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.
Using the new tools included in the Windows Phone 8.1 SDK, it is easier than ever to create apps that share most of their code. Code can be shared using the new shared app template in Visual Studio, as well as by creating Portable Class Libraries. This session walks through the development of a shared app, showing you where code can be shared and where it still makes sense to implement platform-specific features.
UCB is a patient-centric biopharma leader, focusing on severe diseases in Immunology and the Central Nervous System. The company employs in the region of 9000 employees and operates in approximately 40 countries. UCB achieved revenues of $3.46 billion in 2012.
The main driver to implement Lync in the early part of 2011 was first started by the need for a video conferencing solution. This was further accelerated by the "Smarter Ways" efficiency program – which included effective collaboration within the scope. The Lync conferencing services alone helped UCB realize savings of $1.2M compared to the legacy conferencing solutions that were previously in place. The choice of Lync has also allowed full integration of the Unified Contact Centre systems at UCB.
During this session, UCB will cover their drivers for unified communication, the Lync journey (strategy with scope expansion and timeline), communication & change management activities and finally some KPI's.
You've seen the basics, now let's look at some internals. How does ASP.NET run on both the .NET full framework and the new .NET Core CLR? How does ASP.NET 5 use Roslyn to give a "compile free" feeling during rapid development? Coverage of the new configuration model, built in dependency injection, service providers. We'll look at how ASP.NET 5 sits on the new open source Microsoft web stack of technologies and lets you develop and deploy on Windows, Mac, or Linux. Your framework, your way, on your editor of choice and operating system of choice.
