Build 2015 day 1 keynote

Highlights:

Note, the stream started at 1:36am my time. You can see the timestamp in most of the screencaps, so you can translate it into how far into the steam each topic/announcement is.

1:36

Satya comes on stage

When Windows first started, it was written by 2 guys and was for PCs.
But now there are so many more devices out there.
It is Microsoft’s mission to help empower every person, and that starts by empowering every developer.

clip_image001

Invited David William Hearn on stage

talking about the Staffpad, the Script music app he created http://www.staffpad.net/
He
started with touch recognition

clip_image002

clip_image003

1:47am Satya starts talking cloud

Wants all of the cloud to come together to create intelligent apps. Using machine learning, etc.
Want Office 365 to be a platform.
There should be a "graph of data" that developers can access and extend.

clip_image004

Windows 10 is being built for a more personal computing experience. From Raspberry Pi, tablets, etc.

1:49 Scott Guthrie comes on stage

Azure is a "hyper scale" cloud platform.
They have 19 unique Azure compute locations. They support multiple operating systems, programming languages.

clip_image005

Added 500+ new features in last 12 months

clip_image006

clip_image007

They are making Docker & containers a core feature of Azure. (I’m the most excited about this!)

1:55 Ben Golub comes on stage (Docker CEO)

Docker started around 2 years ago.
Lets allow you to take any application and wrap it up with any of it’s dependencies so it can run independently and can work with any other dockerised application.
They initially just thought they were going to enable you running Linux in docker containers on Windows.

clip_image008

He had 5 personal surprises when Docker started working with Microsoft.

  1. Want to host linux or windows apps and allow you to run on any platform
  2. Didn’t catch it.
  3. MS embraced the notion of what it takes to make multiple container apps work. MS embraced dockers open infrastructure initiative
  4. In multi app containers, you can mix linux & windows containers
  5. Everything happened quickly

 

Mark Russ (Azure CTO) gives a Demo

Starting with a ASP.Net 5 application
First he is going to deploy it to Docker.
He currently has 2 containers on his machine. One hosting a Minecraft server

clip_image009

1st step is to packaged his ASP app into a docker container

And then he runs the container after it is packaged

clip_image010

Docker gives the running container a random name (tender_elion)

clip_image011

Can publish directly to Docker from Visual Studio. He deploys to a Linux host

clip_image012

clip_image013

Can attach debugger directly to an app running in a docker container on a VM!

2:08 Scott Hanselman comes on stage

“We love the new Maker movement.”
Created a mock "maker website".

clip_image021

Shows that he has a 3D model (opens it up in a viewer)

clip_image022

He then uploads the model to the website, gets a 3d preeview, and list of stores that can print it.

clip_image023

Guy in the store can

clip_image024

Built a tool with Cordova.

Showing off the Android emulator running on Hyper V. (droool, the lack of Hyper-V Android emulator was always a pain point for me).

clip_image025

He has the website building on Visual Studio Online, and pushing it out to Azure. Can see the builds in VSO, and the previous deployments on Azure

clip_image026

clip_image027

Scott sets autoscale on the Web app

clip_image028

And of course he has App Insights enabled on the site AND the Native apps

clip_image029

clip_image030

Can tie all of these different aspects (Web App, Logic App, Mobile App, API app) all into one context.

clip_image031

Logic apps. I like this new feature. Can drag in multiple API apps and connect them up.
API apps are basically Web API projects, with Swagger metadata.
Here he connects SalesForce, to sending a notification to a Slack room, through the Fabrikam API to get customer details, and then out to Twillio to send a SMS to a customer

clip_image032

Visual Studio Code – New Mac & Linux code editor
Powered by Roslyn & Omnisharp

New enhancements in SQL Azure
Can encrypt data, and can pool the databases

clip_image042

clip_image043

clip_image044

Demo how to use Azure database pool

clip_image045

They use Azure machine learning to automatically suggest databases that should be used in a pool. So she selects all of them and puts them into a pool

clip_image046

Can visualise your database DTU usage, so you can see how to size it

clip_image047

Can also set the min & max for it to scale. Nice! It was always a hassle to get this right

clip_image048

She has a report that is aggreating data from all the databases in the database pool
This is usisng the new elastic database querying.

clip_image049

How do you deal with updates & schema changes when it is like this?
We also want to restrict it so that customers only see the data in their database.
She just runs a new elastic database query and it runs across all of them

clip_image050

The new updated database means that the customer can now only see their data on the map

clip_image051
