You will learn what your customers will experience when Windows manages these apps. We’ll deep dive into the APIs for writing Real Time Communication triggers including network, system, and time events.

For performance-critical apps, every microsecond saved means money. Windows Server 8 makes it possible to increase throughput, handle higher message rates, reduce latency and jitter, and lower CPU usage, all with standard server hardware. The new Registered I/O (RIO) model in Windows 8 delivers a low-latency solution while maintaining on-the-wire compatibility with existing TCP and UDP protocols. Additionally, a new fast path loopback allows high-speed apps to achieve a higher level of performance. Attend this session to learn how to program and tune these new capabilities and to witness them in action.
