Tuesday, November 27, 2012 10:00 AM, Online

How do you get out of the death spiral of testing?

Join this webinar and learn:
• The problems with legacy code
• How isolation helps
• Hand rolled mocks
• Mocking frameworks
• Writing effective unit tests

This is a hardcore session, where we take an open source application and add tests to it. In the process, we’ll refactor the code, discuss readability, and where to even begin.

Azure Florida Association: A Modern Architecture for Elastic Azure Applications Zachary Gramana

Online Event Icon 11/28/2012 - 7PM - Webcast (please register) - TO ATTEND THIS MEETING, PLEASE REGISTER HERE: https://www3.gotomeeting.com/register/657038102
Building horizontally scalable applications can be challenging. If you face the need to rapidly scale or adjust to high load variations, then you are left with little choice. Azure provides a fantastic platform for building elastic applications. Combined with recent advances in browser capabilities, some older architectural patterns have become relevant again. We will dust off one of them, the client-server architecture, and show how we can use its modern incarnation to bypass a class of problems normally encountered with distributed ASP.NET applications.
