Machine Learning can often be a daunting subject to tackle much less utilize in a meaningful manner. In this session, attendees will learn how to take their existing data, shape it, and create models that automatically can make principled business decisions directly in their applications. The discussion will include explanations of the data acquisition and shaping process. Additionally, attendees will learn the basics of machine learning - primarily the supervised learning problem.
The first major decision when planning for a Lync deployment is how to deploy Microsoft Lync: as Lync Server 2013 on premises, or Lync Online with Microsoft Office 365 in the cloud. This first decision will shape service quality, resiliency, and resource optimization in your deployment. This session goes over the differences between "on-premise," hybrid, and "on-line" solutions and details situations where each would be optimal for your deployment. Finally, this session covers hosted solutions, the interoperability between Lync and Office 365, and offers guidance in preparing for a potential migration to the cloud.
Authentication and Authorisation can be tricky, with many different methods of performing similar tasks and it can be hard to figure out what's best for your projects. It gets even trickier when you start thinking about how to authorise cross platform applications including web and apps (and now with Xamarin thrown in, it's even murkier!). Throw in WebAPI2 on the other side and it's starting to become unclear how to make a great experience for developers and end users alike. In this session Jordan will demonstrate how to build a centralised authentication system that supports web and apps, passing claims around all over the place using Json Web Tokens ending up in a WebAPI2 based API site. The session will investigate a range of concepts from web to app to API, including best practices, Autofac powered filters, OWIN and other cool concepts that your services need!

Visual Studio 2013 has been a small jump in version number from 2012, but don't be fooled – from your first time using it you discover it is the little things that make a big impact in your day-to-day development friction. In this session, Colin Bowern highlights the little changes from getting started to optimizing your app that make this a worthy upgrade for your tool chain, no matter the type of application you build.
