Menus, Pivots, and Command Bars oh my! You have plenty of building blocks for enabling commanding and navigation experiences in your app - but when and how should you use those building blocks to create a great experience and how can you tailor that experience to ensure it works great on all screens and devices. Learn about new and existing building blocks for creating commanding and navigation experiences and guidance on when and how to use those building blocks in your app. Speaker: Micah Lewis.
The Azure IoT Suite provides heterogeneous device support via the Azure IoT SDKs. The goal of the architecture is to enable secure, efficient, and robust communication between nearly any kind of device through a cloud/field gateway. The function of cloud/field gateway includes protocol adaptation which is required to connect existing and legacy devices to send telemetry to the cloud, and receive notifications in command & control scenario. A field gateway is a specialized device-appliance or general-purpose software that acts as a communication enabler and potentially, as a local device control system and device data processing hub. The key takeaway of session is to show you that it is easy and simple to implement practical cloud-assisted or cloud-based commercial IoT solutions. Come join this session as Fai demonstrates an Azure IoT protocol gateway which enables communication with Azure IoT Hub. It is a pass-through component that bridges traffic between connected IoT devices (e.g., over the MQTT protocol) and IoT Hub. In the demo, the protocol gateway is deployed on a hardware device meant for on-premises environments.
In 2010, Microsoft's Developer Division began Visual Studio Team Services, the Software-As-A-Service (SaaS) offering based on Team Foundation Server. This is the story of moving a traditional software business to Cloud-First Development and DevOps. The technologies included enterprise git, a modern release pipeline, automated testing, usage and performance monitoring, log analysis, a data-driven backlog, lean cycle metrics, and public cloud hosting. The talk combines the cultural transformation, practices, technical choices, and metrics.
