W14 Building Compute-Intensive Apps in Windows Azure


2:00 PM - 3:15 PM

Level: Intermediate

Vishwas Lele

Chief Technology Officer


Monte Carlo is a computation method that relies on repeated random sampling. It is essentially a non-recursive divide and conquer algorithm that can take advantage of the massive amount of parallelism, offered by the Windows Azure Platform. In this session, we will build a Monte Carlo Simulator from scratch. This will include the following functions: Submit - Ability to submit calculation jobs Monitor - Ability to monitor the progress of calculation jobs queued for execution. Analyze - Using a Silverlight based UI, visualize the results of the calculation stored in Azure Tables.

You will learn:

  • Elasticity offered by Azure worker roles. Scalability offered by Azure Table. Guaranteed delivery offered by Azure Queues
  • Silverlight based application for rich visualization of calculation results stored in Azure Tables
  • MVC2 application hosted inside Azure Worker Role

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.
