Cloud Services SIG: Getting Scale out of your Web Apps with Azure
Note: New Location at Orrick in Menlo Park
Title: Getting Scale out of your Web Apps on Azure (Moving your application and it's relational data to the cloud)
Speaker: Bruno Terkaly, Senior Technical Evangelist, Microsoft, http://blogs.msdn.com/brunoterkaly
Presentation Summary: ;If scalability and reliability are important to your web applications, this session will help you achieve both. This session includes hands-on development for those who bring their laptops and will take you from the very beginning all the way to a finished application running in the Azure cloud. What makes this session interesting is that builds everything from scratch, including the database. But a web application by itself is not scalable if the data cannot be scaled as well. That's why both this MVC application and the database get migrated to Windows Azure and SQL Azure, respectively. If you choose to participate, by the time you leave this session, you will have created an on-premise database and MVC application and you will have migrated both the data and the app to the cloud. This session has been delivered live to 1,000s of developers.
