Presentation 1:
Microsoft Azure Cosmos DB

Azure Cosmos DB is a planet scale globally distributed multi-model NoSQL database service.
This session will cover a brief introduction of NoSQL before taking a deep dive of some of its inherent APIs to build client applications using the .NET SDK and leverage server-side programming model to build stored procedures, triggers and UDFs.
One reason why Cosmos DB shines (among other things) is because of latency and throughput. Cosmos DB supports an array of consistency levels which allow you as a developer to control latency. We will discuss well-defined relaxed consistency models and which one to use and customize for real world use cases.

Presentation 2:
Use PaaS Apps to Accelerate Your Development

Creating mobile and web apps that work on any device while keeping customers connected is essential. Development teams want to move quickly on new ideas without being bogged down by technology constraints. A fully managed Platform as a Service (PaaS) solution can accelerate development when crafting integrated web and mobile apps.
In this talk, you will see how to create and manage web, mobile, and API backends that can be consumed by development teams. With lots of example code and a focus on minimizing costs, attendees will leave with a clear idea of how to architect enterprise-ready apps.
