Keeping a Legacy Alive with Office 365, VSTS and Azure

For nearly thirty years my father ran a small software company out of his home. When he unexpectedly passed away in June of 2016 one of the decisions my family faced was to either shut down the company or continue supporting the nearly 1000 law firms that had come to rely on the product.

This is the story of not only keeping his legacy alive but also of building on it in a way that wouldn’t have been economically feasible even a few years ago. Throughout the journey we’ll explore how Office 365 improves our communications, how Visual Studio Team Services gives us enterprise-scale DevOps, and how Azure App Services and Storage Accounts give us the flexibility to grow. Together, these services allow this small, family business to run like a world-class organization without a world-class budget.

Azure SQL Data Warehouse, Cloud BI

Join us as we explore how to use Microsoft's new MPP (Massively Parallel Processing) technology. We'll deep dive into why we would use it over SQL Server, the benefits, the problems, and give real world examples on how a .Net developer & business owner (me) learned how to create a high performance scalable solution. We'll cover things like partitioning, columnstore indexes, CTAS, statistics, and the all important partition swapping.
