Want to get good at DevOps, but deployments are getting you down? Is the code integration process just plain driving you crazy? Well, maybe it's time to try out feature flags (aka "feature toggles"). Feature flags are how sites like Visual Studio Team Services, Bing, Google, and Facebook do their deployments. Quite frankly, it makes their lives a lot easier than yours.
The idea is simple. Write a feature (or version of a feature) so you can turn it on/off with a configuration setting. That one little design decision simplifies your deployments and lets you do a whole lot of different things like private betas, A/B testing, and feature rollbacks. Best of all, you'll have much less stress because you simply stop worrying so much about how you integrate your code.
You will learn:
What is a feature flag?
What is a feature flag deployment?
What is A/B testing?
How do implement a "private beta" using feature flags
Credential theft has become one of the most widespread attacks affecting customers and users. Security experts have been advocating for years the needs to raise the bar on user authentication and move away from passwords.
In Windows 10, we introduce support for Microsoft Passport, a solution that is easy to deploy, always multi-factor, interoperable on premise and on the web, and inexpensive. With Windows Hello (biometric authentication which can provide instant access to Microsoft Passport), Windows 10 offers a truly seamless experience that is more secure than today's world of complicated passwords. A simple API makes it easy for developers to make use of Microsoft Passport and biometrics for user authentication in apps.
Keine Panik, bitte! Add-Ins sind nicht schon wieder etwas neues, Apps wurden lediglich in Add-Ins umgetauft. Natürlich ändert sich nichts an der Tatsache, dass Add-Ins der von Microsoft empfohlene Weg sind Erweiterungen für SharePoint und Office zu schreiben. Von eigenen WebParts bis hin zum Bereitstellen angepasster SharePoint Sites, alles soll zukünftig ausschließlich über Add-Ins laufen - wie im Himmel so auf Erden.
In meinem Vortrag möchte ich Euch gerne einen Einstieg in das Add-In Model geben und natürlich auch von meinen Erfahrungen aus der Praxis berichten.
