In this demo-packed session, we'll walk through building your first .NET controlled LEGO Mindstorm using Windows Phone. You'll learn about the LEGO EV3 API, how to control motors and read sensor data, and how to batch commands to the robot. Once we have a working, drivable robot, we'll switch to cloud-enabling the robot so that you can drive the robot remotely via a Web site hosted in Microsoft Azure.
SoundCloud is the world's leading audio platform. Founded in 2007 by Alex Ljung and Eric Wahlforss, musicians and engineers, SoundCloud provides creators of music & audio with an open platform and the best tools to share original content, build an audience, and connect with a community of other creators – from home-based producers to global superstars. SoundCloud is operating on a global scale out of its Berlin headquarters. It can be accessed via the web, on mobiles and through a number of third party platforms.
SoundCloud is rooted on the premise that sound creators are looking for innovative ways to build their careers. Social and instant global distribution are key in supporting creators on that path. Within less than two years, the world has gone from desktop to mobile – a trend that requires new approaches but at the same time creates an opportunity for an audio-based platform. Currently, digital music distribution is characterized by players who enable a migration to the online world, however there still is an opportunity for a gate opener to truly augment the experience of the user. Innovation requires high-performance organisations, thus Organisational Health is key for innovative companies - regardless if they are based in the Silicon Valley or in Berlin.
Microsoft Azure offers many new business scenarios and solutions that are difficult to implement using traditional corporate environments. One of the most dynamically developing approaches is the concept of Big Data. When we talk about Big Data, everyone understands it differently. Despite this, everyone would probably agree that we are talking about large volumes of data. From this report, you will learn about different ways to use Microsoft Azure in this context.
Your infrastructure in Azure can be isolated and purpose built for public consumption. How do you design your virtual networks and access controls to ensure everything is as desired? Now that you understand the fundamentals of Virtual Networks in Azure, let's dive deeper into hybrid connectivity options using Site to Site VPNs, allowing your datacenter to extend to your Azure environment. Concerned about speed and latency for your applications? Don't want your internal data being routed over the public internet? Explore what ExpressRoute can offer as the ultimate connectivity option.
