1:45 PM Saturday Room: 1401What the heck is Azure other than a nice shade of blue? How do you pronounce it? Why would you want to use it? How would you use it? What would you use it for? What does the programming look like? This session is for enquiring minds who want to know the answers to these questions, and more. I will also show how to create and run a WCF service in a web role, talk about deployment, and show how to convert an existing Silverlight application to run on Azure.
5:00 PM Saturday Room: Hearthside LoungeI have a dekstop client application that talks to public web services (asmx) that talk to private web services (asmx) behind a firewall that talk to the SQLServer database with the servers all residing in a standard hosted environment. In this session, I'll discuss the whys and wherefores of migrating from this old-school environment to Microsoft Azure. I'll also show you how to create a WCF Service running over TCP in a worker role, and how to use Intellitrace to debug your application in the cloud.
