2014-04-29 - Two for one: Visual Studio Monaco and alternative technologies on Windows Azure
Tuesday, April 29, 2014 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (CEST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Again two sessions in one evening! We'll be exploring Visual Studio Monaco as well as what else you can do on Windows Azure if you leave the beaten track. Neo4J, Redis, HBase and all sorts of other technologies mixed and matched in IaaS and PaaS.
Developing Azure Websites with Visual Studio Online (Monaco): because it's mundane Monaco
With Visual Studio Online or shortly VSO, Microsoft already offered a broad range of tools and services that support different kinds of development. To further build on that vision, Microsoft recently released a preview of “Monaco”, a new development service specifically designed for building and maintaining Windows Azure Websites.
With Monaco, Microsoft provides developers with a lightweight, friction free companion to the Visual Studio IDE that is accessible from any device on any platform. It is a rich, browser based, code focused development environment optimized for the Windows Azure platform, making it easy to start building and maintaining applications for the cloud.
In this session we will walk you through this exciting new Windows Azure service, show you how fast you can make changes in Monaco and how the online experience can speed up your development and offers you an even greater set of tools than the ones you already use every day. We will talk about more advanced scenarios, and show you how the extensions work, how you can leverage Git and TFS source control in combination with Monaco, and how you can even make live changes, compile them and have them reflected immediately online.
