  • TMM02 Workshop:Automating Hyper-V with System Center Technologies

    by Greg Shields

    This day long Master Class gives you the skills to incorporate automation into the design, build, management, and operations of a Hyper-V virtual infrastructure.

    Curious about Hyper-V and System Center? Experienced with VMware and vSphere? Ready to add Microsoft virtualization to your modern datacenter?

    This daylong Master Class gives you the skills to incorporate automation into the design, build, management, and operations of a Hyper-V virtual infrastructure. It delivers the training necessary to build and operate a Hyper-V virtual datacenter. In it you'll learn how Microsoft System Center 2012 R2 layers on top of Hyper-V to deliver a production-ready and highly-automated virtual environment experience.

    Our morning session starts with System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager to integrate the constituent components of a Hyper-V virtual environment, including servers, storage, networking, and clusters. You'll learn how best to create and deploy VMM building blocks like hardware profiles, guest OS profiles, and VM templates. By morning's end, you'll know everything you need for success in building your virtualized datacenter.

    Then, in the afternoon, you'll continue with a look at automating the operation of a Hyper-V virtual datacenter using System Center technologies. You'll automate the installation of software using Server App-V and Web Deploy packages. You'll customize VMs as they're provisioned with Generic Command Execution (GCE) scripts. And you'll learn the real-world applicability of VMM Service Templates as you create services you can immediately deploy in your production environment.

    Building VMs is but only the start of automation. You'll see how System Center can remediate problems automatically with the help of Orchestrator. You'll eliminate the tedious work in provisioning virtual machines by enabling self-service via App Controller and Service Manager, while protecting yourself from VM sprawl with VMM resource policies and approvals for service requests.

    You will learn:
    How to build a VMM/Hyper-V environment, how to fully automate VM deployment, management, updating, and self-service
    Extend your vSphere virtualization knowledge into Microsoft's Hyper-V and VMM virtualization stack
    Why Hyper-V in combination with System Center management makes a perfect second (or first!) hypervisor for your datacenter needs

    At 8:00am to 5:00pm, Monday 17th November

  • VSM01 Workshop: Native Mobile App Development for iOS, Android, and Windows using C#

    by Marcel de Vries

    This session will walk you through the process of building one app for multiple platforms.

    So you need to build a mobile app but have been a C# developer for a long time. What are your options? Should I build a mobile app using the web approach and build my mobile app with HTML and Java Script? Or do I need to learn objective C for iOS, or perhaps Java to build an Android app? Do I need to learn all those different languages and frameworks to build mobile apps or are there other options for me as a C# developer?

    Fortunately there is! The option that stands out for you as a C# developer is the option to build Native apps using C#. Xamarin makes this happen even from you Visual Studio IDE, by providing a language projection of the native platform libraries (android or iOS) to C# and an implementation of the .NET framework that runs on that device.

    In this full day work shop Rocky and Marcel will walk you through the process of building one app for multiple platforms. They will show how to share as much code as possible, while keeping the uniqueness of each platform to appeal to the native users as much as possible. They will go into details of each platform, the app concepts of each platform and how to build native apps for these platforms using the native libraries from C#. They will also show in detail how you can architect your app in such a way that you can share code amongst these platforms that will help you get much better ROI then building three native apps using the vendor provided toolsets.

    After this workshop you are able to build your first mobile apps on the different platforms with the Xamarin toolset and have a good understanding about the different platforms, what makes them unique and how you can build a cross platform app, while maintaining the platform uniqueness and sharing a large chunk of your codebase.

    At 8:00am to 5:00pm, Monday 17th November

  • VSM03 Workshop: From Code to Release: DevOps for Developers

    by Brian Randell

    In this workshop, Brian will show you how to make shipping a feature you check off every time you finish your work.

    We know you know how to write code. Websites, services, and even mobile apps–you build them all. You hold your daily scrum, you burn down your work, and you finish your product backlog items. But are you finishing up that most important feature? Of course that feature is shipping.

    In this workshop, Brian will show you how to make shipping a feature you check off every time you finish your work. We take a .NET web application and show you how to ship locally and to Microsoft Azure as often as you want. In doing this, we begin by looking at the features available to you from Microsoft in Team Foundation Server 2013 as well as Visual Studio Online. We look at the monitoring tools available both on-premises and in the cloud, and look at how the world of shipping software has matured, including what the industry calls DevOps.

    We discuss what you need to do to support continuous deployment. Learn how to use the latest build features, as well as look at various deployment tools such as Release Management for Visual Studio 2013. See how better testing, using tools like System Center Virtual Machine Manager and Lab Management in Team Foundation Server 2013, can make testing easier and more accurate. Learn how you can use load testing in conjunction with Windows Azure to know your app is ready.

    Beyond that, sometimes bad things can happen to the best programmers, so you'll want to ensure that you're prepared for issues in production. We look at features– like Application Performance Monitoring in System Center Operations Manager and the new Microsoft Monitoring Agent–that you can use with and without System Center. We also look at Global Service Monitoring for your publically accessible websites as well as the new Application Analytics available through Visual Studio Online.

    In the last section, we cover how you can customize your DevOps practice by using PowerShell Desired State Configuration, custom workflow tasks for build and deployment, and System Center Orchestrator. You learn how you can make your life better, shipping when you want to–every week or even every day, multiple times a day.
