Event Details

Join North East Bytes for our eight event of the year.  Following on from the great events that we've had so far we've lined up another two great speakers who are delivering two very interesting sessions.  Register now, you won't want to miss this opportunity!

"Hyper-V for Developers" with Liam Westley

For those new to virtualisation we'll provide an overview of virtualisation and the desktop products currently available for developers. Then we'll explain the differences between those products and Hyper-V and examine the two products for running Hyper-V; Hyper-V Server R2 (free) and Windows Server 2008 R2 (semi-free). We'll demonstrate automation of Hyper-V using the PowerShell library available on CodePlex so that you can automate your testing and integrate Hyper-V in your continuous integration server, and compare the various Virtual Network options available and demonstrate their effects on a set of real virtual machines.

At the end of the session you'll have a greater understanding of the Hyper-V architecture, whether it is suitable for your needs, as well as an overview of how to configure networking and automate Hyper-V for development tasks.

Liam Westley is a consultant, runs his own company Tiger Computer Services Ltd, and specialises in software for Broadcast Television although he recently diversified into software for the NHS. His Niagara SMS moderation system has been used by QVC UK for the last four years to display SMS messages from viewers, live, on screen. Towards the end of 2009, Liam completed a new ticketing system for Hat Trick Productions which is now providing e-tickets to shows such as Have I Got News For You, The Armstrong and Miller Show and The Bubble. Liam has worked for chellomedia, GMTV, BSkyB, SmashedAtom and Original Thinking Group. In his time he created the first in house weather system for Sky News using Visual Basic 1.0, acted as architect for two general election systems, project managed the launch of the GMTV web site, was key to delivering the first interactive television chat service in the UK for BSkyB and helped launch the first live shopping channels in the Netherlands.
