 As a developer with years of experience developing web apps using ASP.NET, SQL Server, Windows Server and Active Directory, how do you move to the cloud with Windows Azure? How can you apply your existing skills and experience to developing cloud apps in Windows Azure? In this session, we will take a simple, traditional ASP.NET app and walk through the migration to Windows Azure. We'll discuss the important considerations, practices, architectural differences, challenges, advantages and economic benefits to consider when migrating to Windows Azure.

You will learn:

  • Overview of common business challenges and scenarios that drive Cloud migration
  • How to move traditional on-premise web apps to Windows Azure
  • Architectural considerations for maximizing the value of the Cloud
