All the Goodness that was TechEd

So, time to clear out some of the cobwebs that have started to build up around here. Yes, I know it has been more than a little while since I’ve posted here. Well, I have a reason. I’ve been on a spiritual journey in the Himalayas sitting in a mountaintop cave contemplating existence and seeking both nirvana and inspiration.

OK, there are portions of that last sentence that aren’t true. Specifically, the entire thing.

The truth is, I, like you, have been incredibly busy helping developers build great apps on Azure as well as trying to keep up with the constant release cycle we seem to be on at Microsoft as of late. To that end, I thought I’d ease my way back into this by bringing you up to speed on some of the great things we announced at TechEd last week. So, without further ado, here you go:

  • Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute, a technology that helps companies manage hybrid clouds, is now generally available. Read more..
  • A preview Microsoft Azure Files, a new technology that simplifies how files an be shared in the cloud across applications and services, has been released. Read more…
  • Compute-intensive A8 & A9 Virtual Machines are now generally available in Microsoft Azure. Read more…
  • About a billion more (maybe an exaggeration) Azure updates were announced during the keynote. Find out more…
  • BizTalk Server 2013 R2 to deliver improvements in performance, reliability, and functionality. Read more…
  • RTM of Visual Studio 2013 Update 2 delivers on the promise of enabling developers to create universal Windows apps for Windows 81. and Windows Phone 8.1 from one single project in Visual Studio. Read more…

OK, I know what you’re thinking, “This is all well and good, but what do I do know? I’m feeling overwhelmed! How can I possibly keep up! Ahhhhh!” Don’t worry. Take a deep breath. I’ve got you covered. Here’s what you can do:

There. Feel better? More relaxed? I know I am. See you soon!
