Caching is a key technology to improving application performance and scale by taking the load off your database and moving into distributed memory, frequently used data that is very close to the application components accessing it. This session focuses on AppFabric Caching technology from Microsoft and provides a technical view of how developers can take advantage of it. The AppFabric Cache has both a cloud service on Windows Azure AppFabric as well as an on-premise version that is part of Windows Server AppFabric - we examine the key differences between the two. Finally, the session covers the key scenarios that the Cache is being used in and the value gained.

Visual Studio 11: Turning Ideas into Software

The world of software today is defined by the word “Experience”. You can see it in the way people have adopted new experiences for devices of different form factors, you can see it in how people want to experience their information and you can see it in the context of how people interact to build software solutions. Regardless of the solution you’re building, the fundamental need for a compelling experience exists. In Visual Studio 11, Microsoft aims to ensure that developers have all the tooling to create compelling user experiences, an IDE that sets a new bar for the developer experience and a family of products dramatically improves the team experience for everyone.
