When designing cloud applications, you should take into account the fact that a failure or malfunction of any component of the system is possible. This template is called Designing for Failure. This design approach helps minimize the negative consequences of failure of any component of the internal or external system. Sometimes, it is not so simple to use the Designing for Failure template, but the Azure platform greatly facilitates this task due to the fact that some of the functions are implemented by cloud services—Azure Web Sites, Traffic Manager, CDN, RA—Geo Redundant Storage. During this session, we shall talk about how to use the functionality provided by Azure to ensure the accessibility of a website, even in the event of failure of one of the regions of the platform.
The Visual Studio publishing experience for ASP.NET projects has been refined over the past few years. In this talk we will go into detail covering all the different techniques to publish your asp.net apps. We will start in Visual Studio, and quickly move to the command line and continuous integration servers. Sayed will you how you can improve your publish process to target multiple environments and how to automate publishing from a CI server. We will also take a look at some of the unique publish workflows that Azure Web Sites supports.
In this report, we shall focus on the capabilities of the new control panel in Azure (Azure Portal Preview), which is a single workspace for developing and managing cloud applications. Implementation of this new panel is not just merely an interface change, it is a new approach to DevOps. This report includes a demonstration of how to establish continuous deployment of websites and databases, manage builds and tests, as well as track their relationship with tasks and work items.
Shane Ginsberg, Nathan Moody, Michael Neuman, and Rick Barraza discuss topics ranging from the critical importance of user empathy when designing and building software for people, to design's role in the age of ubiquitous computing and ambient intelligence. Online viewers provided several great questions for the panelists to explore. Lots of topics and important information for designers and developers alike. Tune in.
