In this session we will take a look at some of the key considerations when we think about configuring the Hyper-V guests. We'll take a look at aspects such as memory configuration, virtual hard drives and more.
In preparation for the event, we recommend that you download the free, full-featured version of Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2012 R2 as well these other free evaluations available for download:
Just getting started with your Lync Voice deployment? Come join us as we explore the wide range of Lync voice telephony capabilities that you'll want to know about to make your deployment a success, including call routing scenarios, user features, response groups, and devices. In this session we discuss how to plan, configure, and manage these features in for UC environments big and small.
Presentation Slides, PDFs, Source Code and other presenter materials are available at: https://github.com/cppcon/cppcon2015 — Range-based interfaces are functional and composable, and lead to code that is correct by construction. With concepts and ranges coming to the STL, big changes are in store for the Standard Library and for the style of idiomatic C++. The effort to redefine the Standard Library is picking up pace. Come hear about one potential future of the STL from one of the key people driving the change. — I've been doing C++ professionally for the past 20 years, first for Microsoft, then as an independent consultant. Right now, I'm working on bringing the power of "concepts" and "ranges" to the Standard Library with the generous help of the Standard C++ Foundation. Ask me about the future of the Standard Library, or about range-v3, my reference implementation for C++11.
One of the main prerequisites for achieving an optimized delivery of value to end users is the implementation of an automated delivery pipeline. Quick and easy "push-button" deliveries enabled by such a pipeline are a guarantee for a robust and consistent release process which leads your team towards the successful implementation of baseline DevOps practices. Using the Release Management toolset provided by Visual Studio Team Services and Team Foundation Server you can build traceable automated delivery processes consisting of deployment, testing and verification steps that progressively deliver your software packages through a series of stages and environments from development all the way to production. With their lightweight componentization, containers in general and Docker in particular are arising as the supplementary technology that will further optimize practices in many areas necessary for the success in DevOps. Using containers, Developers and Testers can easily create and work with development and test environments knowing that very similar environments are used in production. IT operations has no doubts about what has to be delivered, because self-sufficient containers have been already prepared and tested. Applications can be easily scaled and adapted to increased demands by adding more containers. This session will explain and demo both Release Management and Docker concepts. We will demonstrate how developers can benefit from Docker on their workstations, and discuss the details of Release Management using an example of a multiple staged automated delivery pipeline for a dockerized demo application running in Azure. Join us to see how Release Management and containers can help you succeed in DevOps and frequently deliver high quality software with ease.
