  • Use Cloud-Based Load Testing to Find Scale and Performance Bottlenecks in Your Applications

    Do you find it painful to set up infrastructure to run performance and load tests? Do you think load testing is an expensive affair? Do you have a need for testing your service with a large burst load just before your big launch? Do you want to get a 360 degree of the performance and availability of your application when tested under load conditions? In this session, see how you can use the cloud-based load testing service provided by Visual Studio Team Services in conjunction with the monitoring and analytics capabilities of Application Insights to quickly run load tests and fix performance bottlenecks.

  • Visual Studio 2015 and Azure Resource Manager

    Does it take you days to deploy your infrastructure? In this session we are going to introduce you to Azure Resource Manager and demonstrate how we create Azure Resource Manager (ARM) templates using Visual Studio 2015 and then deploy the infrastructure in minutes. We are going to peek under the covers of the ARM templates to show you what is going on inside the template and why you should be implementing it today. We will look at the Azure portal and walk through the infrastructure we deployed. Lastly we will look at the Azure Resource Template Visualizer and show you a great way to use it to get you started with ARM template creation.
