The September meetup will feature two Windows Azure sessions from last week's TechEd Australia 2012: "Building Auto-scalable Applications on Windows Azure" and "Building Hybrid Applications on Windows Azure".
Building Auto-scalable Applications on Windows Azure
Mahesh Krishnan, Readify
One of the biggest advantages of the cloud is elasticity on demand, but this doesn’t come out of the box on Windows Azure. Come and listen to Mahesh Krishnan talk about how you can easily implement this functionality using the Windows Azure Scaling Application Block, which is part of the Enterprise Library Integration Pack for Windows Azure.
Building Hybrid Applications on Windows Azure
Chris Padgett, Kloud Solutions
Building new applications for, or migrating existing applications to, the cloud is not an “all-or-nothing” decision. Applications might fit a “hybrid” approach, where components for the application can be hosted in the cloud and on-premises. This session explains how to connect, extend, and integrate applications in your data centre with the cloud using Windows Azure, including technologies such as SQL Azure Data Sync, Service Bus Relay, and Connect.
