MSBuild, the biggest event supported by Microsoft, was held from may 10 to 12, 2017 and brought a lot of good news for both programmers and business people. Here are some of these:
Azure Mobile App now available for iOS and Android.
Do you want to control your Azure Applications using a mobile phone? Now, such an action is possible! The release of “Azure App from Microsoft” was announced in 2017. The first application MSBuild edition for Android was released on May 12, 2017 and allows its users to track their financial resources, review the status of critical metrics anywhere, At any time, to be informed of notifications and alerts on health problems, helps maintain control of their resources and take corrective action.
“CloudShell” came to Microsoft Azure.
Would you like to use several Azure console commands? During MSBuild 2017, they announced the inclusion of the “CloudShell” command console into Microsoft Azure. You can now use it to perform all sorts of tasks. During the presentation, they created 100 instances of virtual machines. Can you imagine doing these types of actions manually? This task would take a lot of time, but thanks to the command console it can be completed in a few minutes. It’s also possible to configure and monitor the status of several sources with just one command.
Visual Studio can debug applications directly on Azure.
Great news for programmers! Visual Studio can now debug applications in Azure, including those that have already been released and which work with real data. But how is it possible? Working with real information brings a great risk. Any data or database may be damaged. However, it’s now possible to work directly in Azure with “Azure Safe Debugging”. Instead of “breakpoints”, this option uses “Snappoints”, which collect and display data collection for a particular application. This makes the procedure for finding bugs easier.
Azure Services on-premises.
During MSBuild, Microsoft promoted one innovative service: Azure Stack. According to the author’s description, it is an extension of the Azure platform, which aims to provide services outside the public Cloud. Scenarios include, for example, latency and offline constraints. Azure Stack allows IT to install Azure on their own computers and provide services from their data center.
With all these innovations and also those coming in the future, it is clear that Azure is the ideal platform for your services and business. So what are you waiting for? Create your Azure account right away!
