Java Applications on Microsoft Azure

Curious about what Microsoft has to offer the Java community? Join us to explore the tools and technologies Microsoft provides Java developers get in the cloud with Azure. We'll demonstrate how to deploy Java web applications and become familiar with cloud service configurations for load balancing, session affinity, in-memory caching, and remote debugging. We'll also discuss the logistics of managing Azure deployments with firewall rules, environment variables, and remote access. Finally, we'll walk through coding exercises using the Azure SDK for Java to demonstrate how to use cloud services for message queuing and data persistence. At the end of this talk, you will have a basic understanding of how to develop, deploy, and manage Java applications for the Azure ecosystem.
