Title: DevOps with Azure and Visual Studio Online
Abstract: Azure, Microsoft’s cloud platform, is growing by leaps and bounds. Both in terms of what you can do it, as well as in the number of people using it. Still it many developers are unaware of how Azure and Visual Studio Online can help them not only run their production code, but help them manage their build, deployment, and test, and monitoring workloads as well. In addition, developers with MSDN subscriptions may not be taking full advantage of the up to $150/month Azure benefit that is part of their subscription. In this session we will show you how to take advantage of the Azure platform and your free Visual Studio Online account to help simplify and automate your development lifecycle.
