I recently had the pleasure of speaking at Microsoft TechEd in Houston, TX, and the videos of those sessions are now online. A few thousand people have already watched them, but I thought it’d be good to share it here as well.
The first one– Architecting Resilient (Cloud) Applications — went through a series of principles for high available application design, and then I showed how to build an ASP.NET that took advantage of Microsoft Azure’s resilience capabilities.
The second session — Practical DevOps for Data Center Efficiency — covered some principles of DevOps, and the various tools that can complement the required change in organization culture.
Some of my DevOps talk was taken from an InfoQ article I was writing, and that article is now online. Exploring the ENTIRE DevOps Toolchain for (Cloud) Teams walks through the DevOps tool set in more detail and explains how the various tools help you achieve your objectives.
I’ve got some upcoming posts queued up for the blog, but wanted to share what I’ve been doing elsewhere for the past few weeks.
