Azure LOB Application – from Concept to Cloud in 6 weeks with Tim Myers
When our client approached us with requirement to build a multi-platform browser based line of business application with a 6-week delivery timescale, and low running costs, we had a major review of our technology and delivery platforms, and decided to offer a cloud-based solution. We’ll look at how we chose our technology stack, managed the agile development environment, and clarified the myriad of cloud pricing and hosting solutions.

Isolating the Domain Model from Azure with Stephen Roughley
When developing a software system around a set of business rules that are liable to change it is important to isolate the business rules logic so that it can be easily adapted, tested and proven as the project evolves. This is particularly true of a system that relies heavily on external data sources. Thankfully there are a wealth of proven patterns available for achieving this isolation and in this presentation we will look at how these development patterns were used to isolate a Domain Model that has its data stored in and retrieved from Azure Blob Storage.
About the speaker: Stephen Roughley is a programmer with 9 years’ experience in developing Line of Business applications using Microsoft .NET and other technologies. From the very beginnings of his career, Stephen was trained in the ways of applying patterns and domain modelling techniques to solving business problems and is now a keen advocate of software design patterns and Domain Driven Design techniques.
