Here is what will be covered in this talk:

  • SQL Azure – migrate a database from the local SQLServer to a SQLAzure instance.
  • Create a Web Role with a WCF service. Add code to handle the transfer of diagnostics to Table Storage and Blob Storage — tracing, IIS logs, performance counters, Windows event logs, and infrastructure logs.
  • Add methods to the service that read and write to/from the SQL Azure database. This includes exponential retry code for SQL Azure connection management.
  • Change a client app to consume the service, show how to add a service reference and then call it.
  • Show how to change the connection strings and publish the service to the cloud.
  • Change the client to run against the service in the cloud and show it work. Show the diagnostics using the tools from Cerebrata.
  • Add a method to the service to submit an entry to queue. Add code to initialize the queue as needed.
  • Add a worker role. Add code to handle the diagnostics. Add code to initialize the queue as needed.
  • Add code to the worker role to retrieve the entries from the queue and process them. The method that processes the queue entries writes the messages to blob storage.
  • Update the service reference in the client and run it; show the results in blob storage.
