Dallas is a data information service built on Microsoft Azure. Dallas accesses a variety of data from government, news, financial, traffic, and other sources. By providing a uniform method and format for retrieving and offering data, Microsoft has created a data marketplace.

Both large and small data providers can provide access to data to large and small development organizations in an environment where otherwise it would be highly unlikely or impossible for these groups to partner. Potentially this could lead to the democratization of data, where data can be combined with other data, in ways that could not be foreseen by the original providers. Since this data is available through a REST API, the applications that consume the data do not have to run on any particular platform.

You will learn:

  • To use data provided by Microsoft Dallas in an application
  • To integrate Microsoft Dallas data into an Excel spreadsheet for data analysis
  • To make data available to others in Microsoft Dallas

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.
