Automating Windows Azure without Creating SkyNet

Abstract:  When dealing with systems that must be resilient, self-healing, and highly-available, you can’t just flip switches to keep to keep the system online. That plan does not scale, and time would be better spent working on the next set of features. These systems require automation. In this session, we will cover how you can master automation for Windows Azure, including deployment, service provisioning, environment creation, troubleshooting, and more. Examples will include a variety of tools, including PowerShell, the Windows Azure CLI, and the Windows Azure Rest API. Most importantly, we will cover how to incorporate all of these intelligent scripts without inadvertently creating SkyNet.

Bio: Michael Wood describes himself as a problem solving, outdoorsy, user group founding, dog-loving, blog writting, solution creating, event planning, married, technology speaking, father of one kind of guy. When he’s not living up to that title he’s an avid reader, (horrible) violinist and gammer. Michael is one of the Founding Directors of the Cincinnati .NET User Group in the States as well as the founder of the Cincinnati Software Architects Special Interest Group. He is also a Microsoft MVP in Windows Azure.
