Developing with Azure: Web Apps and DevTest Labs

March 19, 2018 – 45 in attendance


Presentations by two Microsoft MVPs:

  1. Designing and Configuring Azure Web Apps – Roy Kim
  2. Using Azure for Software Development & Testing – Arlan Nugara

Description: Azure DevTest Labs is a free service that helps developers and testers quickly create environments in Azure while minimizing waste and controlling cost. You can test the latest version of your application by quickly provisioning Windows and Linux environments using reusable templates and artifacts. Easily integrate your deployment pipeline with DevTest Labs to provision on-demand environments. Scale up your load testing by provisioning multiple test agents, and create pre-provisioned environments for training and demos. The only cost comes from the actual Azure resources consumed such as VMs, storage, databases, etc. The topics covered include:
• Quickly provision development and test environments
• Minimize waste with quotas and policies
• Set VM automated shutdowns and startups to minimize costs
