I thought March was a big month for Windows Azure, but … what was April for an amazing month! We had the AzureConf the Windows Azure Global Bootcmap last week and some awesome enhancements to Windows Azure. Some of them will be covered in this article.

Microsoft Virtual Academy upcoming online events

Hello and welcome back everybody. After the AzureConf on Tuesday and the dotNetConf, which is currently running, I want to pay some attention on upcoming online events.

Are you familiar with the Microsoft Virtual Academy? It is a great place to become familiar with the greatest technologies from Microsoft. Beside the courses MVA offers some Jump Start series from time to time. Today and yesterday a whole bunch of Jump Start were kicked-off with the Windows 8 UX Design Jump Start. The whole May several courses will follow. Here’s a short overview about them: Continue reading

Links of the week

Hello and welcome back to the links of the week. After a break over the last weeks I have collected enough sites about ASP.NET, Application Lifecycle Management, Windows Store App development, and Windows Azure from the last three weeks that I want to introduce to you.

ASP.NET

  • Four new single page application templates. Gunnar Peipman introduces the four new single page application templates Ember (uses Emberjs and Handlebars), Durandal (uses Durandal, Bootstrap, Knockout, and Sammy), Breeze (uses Breeze, Knockout, and g), and Hot Towel (uses Durandal, Bootstrap, Breeze, Knockout, g, Sammy, and Toastr).
  • Building Amazing Apps with the ASP.NET EmberJS Template. Nathan Totten explains the above mentioned new Ember template in more detail and shows you how you can get started with it.
  • Bundling and minifying in ASP.NET MVC. Another post from Gunnar Peipman about the bundling and minifying feature in ASP.NET. He shows how you can use it and gives you some tips and tricks.

Links of the week

After some silence (this will change during the next weeks – I’m working on a new blog post series) on my blog it is again time for the links of the week. What happened last week?

On Wednesday we had a great Windows AzureConf 2012 with some of the best speakers in the Windows Azure Community. Some of them are Windows Azure Insiders, some of them are MVPs, but, except of the keynote from Scott Guthrie, nobody of the speakers was a Microsoft employee. What does that mean? Real life experience. You will find all the sessions on Channel 9.

One nice thing I find from time to time on the web is a “31 Days of …” series made by Jeff Blankenburg. This time he is working together with Clark Sell and delivers an awesome series of posts about Windows 8. 19 days are already gone, but you will find every single post on 31 Days of Windows 8.

Away from these two remarkable sites I have three additional sites you should have a look at:

Another week is gone and it’s time for the links of the week. This week I only have six articles, but they are really good ones.
