How Windows Azure Access Control Service is used in MyGet Timing 14:00 – 15:30 | Type Live Webcast | Language English

In this session you will learn how MyGet leverages the Windows Azure Access Control Service to outsource its authentication and authorization work, resulting in a flexible yet elegant solution to accommodate one of its basic needs: allowing users to login and consult their data. MyGet consists of (at least) three applications and supports logging in via Windows Live ID, Google, Facebook, OpenID and Active Directory. Not to mention additional applications will be plugged in to this architecture in the future… That basic need gets complicated quickly! Are you willing to know how we keep control of this authentication spaghetti? Do you want to know about the endless possibilities of the Access Control Service? Want to see the ACS service is basically a service bus for authentication and authorization needs? If your answer to any of these questions is yes, this session is tailor made for you.

IntelliTrace, Test Impact Analysis and Team Build ... Better together! Timing 14:00 – 15:30 | Type Live Webcast | Language English

As developers work on the code, the application has to remain under constant scrutiny to ensure it still does what it is supposed to do. That is where testing comes into play. Developers run their unit tests to make sure their code still functions as it is intended, while the QA group tests the application to verify the accuracy, reliability and performance of the application. But, it is hard to know which tests are actually needed to be re-verified as a result of a code change, so it is common to test the entire area where the code change occurred. Until now. Test Impact Analysis helps the developer run only the impacted automated tests and enables QA to skip the tests that were not impacted. IntelliTrace has also become a key feature for development teams in troubleshooting automated/manual test failures. Team Build will make sure that you can enable these powerful features in your automated build process.
