With plenty of demos and code to see (this time), we will look at the burgeoning world of microservices, with special attention paid to the way Azure Service Fabric can help you experiment with and ultimately deploy applications that scale perfectly to the need, whether small or large.

I know what you're thinking. But this is a family show, so I won't repeat that out loud. However, you could have been thinking: “Aren't microservices just SOA with a new name?” Good question! The straight answer is “No,” but come to this presentation to understand why not. That's what we call a “teaser”, but just because it's called that doesn't mean it has anything to do with that thing you were thinking of.

Azure Service Fabric provides capabilities for reliable and scalable solutions that would be extraordinarily challenging and expensive to build without it.

Bonus Feature! I will also quickly review the highlights of Microsoft Connect(); 2016 (https://connectevent.microsoft.com/), so you don't have to build a time machine, go back in time, buy a ticket, travel to it, and watch all three days of sessions yourself. You're welcome!
