Som utvecklare möts du av en ständig ström av nyskapande molnlösningar men det är inte alltid lätt att hålla reda på alla olika sätt att bygga appar för molnet. Det är många delar som måste pusslas ihop till en helhetsbild. När ska du använda PaaS respektive IaaS? Hur hanterar du alla data som hör till apparna? Ska du välja en mikrotjänstarkitektur eller något mer traditionellt? Under den här sessionen rätar vi ut frågetecknen utan att fokusera på någon specifik tjänst. Få en grundlig genomgång av alla komponenter i Azure och hur du som utvecklare bäst använder dem.

Document databases have helped us move towards a code-first world, where schemas are flexible and driven by the application and not by the database. This has freed us from spending valuable time battling with OR mappers and iterating upon rigid schemas, so that we can do spend more time doing things that matter: building solutions to make customers happy. In this talk, we will show you how to take code-first development even further with Azure DocumentDB's automatic indexing. We will show you a world where you can forget about managing secondary-indices - where one can both build today AND ship today.

Two of the most frequently asked questions about moving to Azure IaaS are “How do I size it?” and “What will it cost me?” These questions aren’t easy to answer. Many tools will tell you how to move an on-premises computer to an Azure virtual machine assuming that what you have now is exactly what you need in Azure. In this session, you’ll learn that it is possible to accurately determine what size Azure virtual machines you need and how to calculate the most cost-effective way to move to Azure. You’re moving to better, faster hardware, so why would you need the exact same number of virtual machines with the exact same memory and CPUs? Servers can be consolidated and sized appropriately when the recommendations are based on analysis of the actual performance of the existing servers with a mind for consolidation using very precise calculations of the performance capabilities of the Azure environment. In addition to performance, you can accurately determine your best options based on costs for Azure in terms of storage, storage transactions, networking, and Microsoft SQL Server licensing. Would you be better off moving 5 on-premises servers on a standard A7 virtual machine or would 3 servers on a standard A5 and the other 2 on a basic A3 be more cost effective? This can be calculated.

Machine Learning (ML) has proven to be quite effective in a variety of application domains, including speech recognition, object recognition, image retrieval etc. In each of these aforementioned application domains, ML based “programs” must adapt to changing conditions, handle large data sets often with irregularities, and come up with algorithms with little / incomplete knowledge. Sounds similar to software development? Turns out that ML is being applied to the field of software development including reverse engineering legacy code, software fault detection, and requirement analysis. In this session we will look at various examples of Azure ML being applied to software development.
