MSDN Webcast: Cloud Power Event Series: Adding Scale Easily to ASP.NET Apps

Adding Scale Easily to Microsoft ASP.NET Apps. Common scenario: you suddenly need to increase the horsepower behind your application (or some combination of compute, storage and bandwidth). The following week, you want to scale back with minimal changes to your codebase but don't have the manpower to babysit the additional infrastructure for security patches or OS upgrades. Sound familiar? This session walks you through the steps needed to address your server needs (with Windows Communication Foundation - WCF) and web requirements (Microsoft ASP.NET MVC, Web Forms, Microsoft Silverlight).

Brian gets super excited whenever he talks about technology, especially cloud computing, patterns and practices. His job is to help customers strategically leverage Microsoft technology and help them bring their architecture to a super level. Much of his super architecture background includes building super scalable applications, application integration and award winning web applications. Brian is a co-founder of the non-profit organization CodeMash (www.codemash.org). He speaks at various regional and national technology events including TechEd—he only wishes his job didn't require him to say "super" so much. Brian holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Computer Science and Physics from Capital University in Columbus, Ohio. He is also a zealous gamer, for example he's a huge fan of Fallout 3.
