Participant Access Code:[masked]#
Summary: Nothing beats your own dev farm when you want to be able to go crazy exploring new features. Problem is that VM’s are sooo 20th century…. Most of us don’t have the high-powered machines that you need to set up an n-tier dev environment and those of us that do have to deal with having snapshots of the farm, differencing vhd’s, sysprepped images that are out of date when a new SP for SQL, Windows or SharePoint is released, etc.
This presentation will take you through the step by step instructions on how to set up a 3-tier SharePoint dev farm using Azure Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). We will show a script that automates the deployment so that you can quickly spin up a farm for testing purposes. We will also touch on the basics of Azure IaaS so that you have an understanding of the common differences between it and Hyper-V on your laptop.
