In this session the speaker will go through the various uses of Windows Azure for dev and test scenarios. The content wil call out common current day flaws in testing, such as don't test at all, poor/incomplete hardware, out of date builds in QA, can't test to scale, and several other scenarios. The demo in this session will include building/deploying a simple ASP.Net MVC4 app for testing.
This developer friendly one hour session is packed with lots of inspiration, design principles and tips and tricks using Blend for Visual Studio. The session demos how you can boost your xaml, create simple and beautiful animations and how Blend can ease your work and management of your styles. Everything in this session applies both to Windows Phone and Windows Store development so join in and see why I prefer Blend over Visual Studio when creating most of my xaml code.
Objective: Learning how to build apps that look nice and support the Windows Platform.
Windows Store apps are stateful, meaning that the user receives them with meaningful content already in place, even on first launch, across sessions, and across devices. Taking the point of view of the state itself, this session explores where that state lives, the different ways it's created and modified, and how it fulfills its purpose of supporting stateful apps. Topics include: local and roaming app data; file I/O and file-access cache; setting UI, background tasks for managing state; state versioning; the Credential Locker; handling transient session state across Process Lifetime Management (PLM) events; and app data vs. user data.
You just cannot imagine the Web without audio and video services. Up until now, if you want to include streaming media content in your websites or applications, you need to rely on third party services or massive computing capacity for media transcoding, and streaming to a range of client devices. With the release of Windows Azure Media Services and the Media Services SDK, these capabilities are becoming easily available for you to incorporate in your websites and applications. In this session we'll give an overview of Windows Azure Media Services, and you'll learn from a series of demos how you can take advantage of the platform to add media content to your development.
