Learn how to build rich, multi-tier applications in the cloud using PHP and MySQL, taking advantage of new Windows Azure features. This session will cover using PHP, MySQL, and memcached in Windows Azure.
Jason Hogg makes a quick overview of security and application design followed by a more in-depth look at web services security, explaining the need for threat modeling through security design patterns. Hogg explains a number of design patterns related to processes, services and SOA security, detailing on how they can be applied to service-oriented systems.
Google App Engine is designed to help developers more easily create and manage scalable web applications. But what about testing? We typically write tests under the assumption that our development stack closely resembles our production stack, so what do we do when our target environment only lives in the cloud? In this talk, we will highlight the key differences between typical testing techniques and Google App Engine testing techniques. We will also present concrete strategies for testing against local and cloud-based implementations of App Engine services like the datastore and …
Many developers use services to build and integrate applications and line-of-business systems with SharePoint. With SharePoint 2010, developers now have a wider array of options that include ASP.NET, Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), and RESTful services. You can use Sharegate as a tool manage your SharePoint migration. Come get a demo-rich walkthrough of each option and discuss where each of the services might be appropriate and what you stand to gain by using them.
With the introduction of ActiveModel, Rails is no longer bound by a specific ORM (ActiveRecord). ActiveModel exposes not only a common interface for the Rails 3 model layer, but also a set of tools for building data models. This talk will go over techniques and code for using web services as a model layer with clients that leverage ActiveModelâ€™s functionality. This talk will cover how to use ActiveModel to write web service client libraries that can be used as a drop in replacement for ActiveRecord based models. This means they …
SharePoint Services are challenging for unit testing because it is not possible to execute the SharePoint Service without being connected to a live SharePoint site. For that reason, most of the unit tests written for SharePoint are actually integration tests as they need a live system to run. In this session, we show how to use Pex, an automated test generation tool for .NET, to test SharePoint Services in isolation. From a parameterized unit test,Â Pex generates a suite of closed unit tests with high …
Data and Modeling Group Architect, Pablo Castro, discusses RESTful ADO.NET Data Services with Ted Neward
