Field Guide to Azure Resource Groups

Abstract:Keeping track of all the various resources used by a solution is a daunting task. Not to mention how to control access or enable a consistent, easily repeatable deployment process. This session will help you understand the benefits using Azure Resource Groups. You will learn how to use Azure Resource Manager to perform desired-state deployment of your applications into Azure. In this session you will learn how to use role-based access control (RBAC) to provide limited access to Azure Active Directory users and groups for administering applications deployed into Azure. You will learn best practices in the use of resource groups based on real-world experience. We will dive deep into creating resources and manipulating the Azure Resource Manager templates. In the end, you will be able to unlock new, powerful ways to manage your Azure resources. The session covers the use of resource groups in both the Azure Preview Portal and Azure PowerShell.

Introduction to Azure API Management

Abstract: Building APIs is fun!  The APIs we build can light up an unknown number of devices and services.  Before we can light up those scenarios, there often needs to be some guidance and management features put in place.  Aspects like developer-level documentation, pricing tiers, security, and usage analytics are often vital to an API.  Sure, we could build all those features from scratch – but why?  In this session we’ll dive into several such features, and more, that are available with Azure API Management.
