You keep hearing about Azure and the first thing that comes to mind is virtualization, hosting databases and deploying websites. You're a busy .NET developer that hasn't dug into it, but you're interested in learning more if it REALLY helps your business. In this session, I'm going to walk you through my experience coming from a C# client app background to the "ah-ha!" moment with the benefits of moving to the cloud. I'll take a no-nonsense approach and walk you through the pros and cons that I discovered along the way and how I made sense of all the different services. We'll also take a look at how to extend Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps to Azure by using Windows Template Studio, which helps scaffold an app using the pages, frameworks and features that you want most! By the end of this session, you will have enough information to evaluate Azure and determine if it fits the needs of your business.
You will learn:
- The breadth of Azure platform and services and how they can help you
- How to deploy and troubleshoot Azure applications through Visual Studio 2017
- Quickly scaffold new UWP apps using Windows Template Studio
- How to monitor and scale applications through the Azure portal
