At this event, you will learn about the latest release of Visual Studio 2015 and Microsoft Azure’s features and services – including Microsoft Azure Virtual Machines, Websites, and Visual Studio’s IntelliTest – that can help you build and move a variety of apps to the cloud. You’ll see how to build websites, mobile applications, and enterprise-class applications.
We’ll give you a free Microsoft Azure pass since you’ll spend most of the day in a hands-on lab environment.
Topics we’ll cover:
Intro to Microsoft Azure & Visual Studio 2015 – Hello Azure! In this talk, you’ll learn about Microsoft Azure’s broad service offerings. All the pieces – including Compute, Data, App and Network Services – combine to provide one powerful enterprise-grade cloud platform you can trust. We’ll also broadly cover some of the new features in Visual Studio 2015 and VSO/TFS 2015.
Microsoft Azure App Services with Visual Studio 2015 – Microsoft Azure App Services provide a powerful way to create Web, Mobile, API and Logic applications. In this module, you will learn the basics of these services and try them in the associated hands-on labs. We’ll throw in some of the exciting new features of Visual Studio including the redesigned IntelliTrace for debugging and the brand new IntelliTest that will help you enhance quality while improving productivity.
IaaS – Need some extra servers? We’ve got them. Microsoft Azure Virtual Machines provide both Windows and Linux guest operating systems.

Back in 2014, I was fortunate enough to teach a group of talented students for Microsoft’s AthleTECH program, thanks to founder Anthony Egbuniwe, a Technical Account Manager at Microsoft. We covered visual game development with Construct 2.
Now in Summer 2015, AthelTECH is back at Microsoft’s Chevy Chase MD office and we’re sprinting ahead with Unity game development with C# to build 3D games that can run on any platform.
