Node.js provides a beautiful new platform for building server side applications, which until now has been inaccessible to the Windows developer. Microsoft has been working as a core contributor to the Node project to break this barrier and provide a great Node story on Windows. Come to this talk and we’ll talk about Node.js, why you should care as a windows developer and how you can build node applications both on-premise and in Azure.
Open Source and Microsoft have never been the best of companions. But with the Windows Azure platform, Microsoft set out to support and promote interoperability. This session will take a tour around one of the most robust third-party language libraries - the Windows Azure SDK for PHP. I will describe the SDK’s features; and demonstrate how to create and deploy a web site to the cloud using familiar PHP tools and concepts.
