Azure Quick Hits - Building Apps for the Cloud
In this session, join Tom and Lutful to walk through some of the cool new capabilities in Windows Azure and how you might choose to use one over the other in your development projects. The session will begin with a brief discussion about key design concepts that apply to all cloud projects. Then Lutful will dive into mobile solutions and how those can be built with Windows Azure. That will be followed by a deep dive into the technical criteria that will help you decide what is the best way to deploy and maintain your websites in Windows Azure. Last but not least, we'll explore the new capabilities of SQL Databases and how the premium mode might help overcome those dreaded transient conditions.
