Hyper-V Network Virtualization is a key investment we started in Windows Server 2012 to enable workload mobility and SDN in the cloud. In this session, we dive deep into how this Hyper-V Network Virtualization works, showcase demos, highlight our partner ecosystem, and the enhancements we are making in Windows Server 2012 R2 to make it easier than ever to enable customers to move their workloads and for hosters to attain the trifecta of flexibility, automation, and control across any cloud.
Why should developers care about IaaS? Think of your Windows Azure Datacenter as an Object Model(OM). "IaaS OM" can help us build cost effective systems by only turning on the parts of system that are needed and when they are needed. Additionally, systems built using IaaS can not only be more fault tolerant but also scale in the direction of business growth. We will begin this session with a review of key Windows Azure IaaS concepts including compute, storage and VNET. Next we will walk the "IaaS OM" using Windows Azure Power Shell SDK, including a discussion of bootstrapping VMs. Finally, we will walk through a collection of IaaS scenarios including virtual branch office, single pane of glass for managing on-premises and Azure based resources and hybrid applications that combine IaaS & PaaS.
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 The content wil call out common current day flaws in testing, such as don't test at all, poor/incomplete hardware, out of date builds in QA, can't test to scale, and several other scenarios.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.
Kinect for Windows offers an engaging and interactive approach to learning that completes the experience of teachers and students using Office 365 for Education._x000D_ By showcasing the principles of developing applications for Kinect, and specifically integrating the Kinect experience with Office 365 for Education, this session will describe how to introduce gesture-based interactions and voice recognition as part of a class program in a school. This real case study, accompanied by plenty of code and examples, focuses on creating a quiz engine for Office 365 for Education, which uses the Kinect sensor for 'gamifying' the test session in a class, by recognising specific gesture and voice for identifying the correct answer._x000D_ The engine is built with expandability in mind, allowing teachers to create bespoke quizzes with no coding. And to go even further, a 'Quiz SDK' exists for developers for developing custom extensions to the quiz engine._x000D_ Let's put it all together for an exciting learning experience: a web-based learning platform based on Office 365 for Education, Kinect for Windows for interacting with students and make learning fun, and an extensible quiz engine for developing interactive tests that recognize gesture and voice.
