"Many cloud applications need to support the ability to automate the creation, deployment, monitoring, and maintenance of its components. The Azure Management Libraries and Azure PowerShell Cmdlets allow this type of automation by providing convenient client wrappers around the Azure management REST APIs. This session will introduce Azure Management Libraries and the Azure PowerShell Cmdlets, and demonstrate how they can be used to dynamically create Web Sites, databases, virtual machines, storage accounts, and any other asset available in the Azure platform. If you’re looking for ways to automate your dev/test environment creation and destruction or you’re thinking of implementing a SaaS-based application in the cloud, this session will introduce you to the latest arsenal in the Azure SDK and how you can use it automate everything."

"Millions of requests per hour. Global coverage. Rapid feature deployments. Zero down time. These are the requirements of Azure’s top customers. Focusing on scalability, availability and manageability, this session will discuss and demonstrate architectural and coding practices from live Azure customers and give you repeatable patterns to accelerate your own development."

"As long as you can LINQ it, AutoMapper can build it. This combined with preventing lazy loading problems is a compelling reason to go the view model/AutoMapper route, since we can rely on the power of our underlying LINQ provider to build out the correct, efficient SQL query better than we can. That, I think, is wicked awesome."

"With AutoMapper’s LINQ projection capabilities, we eliminate any possibility of lazy loading or SELECT N+1 problems in the future. That, I think, is awesome."

"From cars, to thermostats, through media players and embedded controllers, devices are being connected to the Internet at a furious pace.  To share information, publish telemetry, provide global visibility, or just to have someone to talk to, cloud services need to connect devices and information at a massive scale.  This session will discuss and demonstrate and coding practices from live Azure customers, with a focus on scalability and availability in an occasionally connected world."
