About the event
In April of 2013 we held the first Global Windows Azure Bootcamp at more than 90 locations around the globe! This year we want to again offer up a one day deep dive class to help thousands of people get up to speed on developing Cloud Computing Applications for Windows Azure. In addition to this great learning opportunity the hands on labs will feature pooling a huge global compute farm to perform diabetes research!
We had issues where federated users were continually prompted from their username and password when trying to sync their OneDrive for Business account. Even if you typed the password correctly authentication still failed. We were directed to this KB Article
Our specific problem was resolved by disabling Extended Protection for Authentication
I recently heard a cloud presentation by James Staten and that is what inspired this post.
Cloud is not the future, cloud is NOW!
The first thing you need to know is the cloud is not the future, the cloud is NOW! If you do not have a cloud strategy you are already behind the curve. Many companies are already in the cloud in various degrees and most have at least an initial cloud strategy mapped out. If the cloud has been brushed off as a fad or it’s not going to happen, you better get on it because the cloud is here and it is here to stay.
The long awaited webjobs is now in preview for Windows Azure! How many times have you deployed a website, then after a couple months requirements change and they want you to run a daily or continuous job that processes files or re-size images or works a queue, now with web jobs in Windows Azure it is easy. In this post I will explain how you can deploy this Azure Web Job as part of your Azure web site (PaaS), You just deploy and you are done. There is no need to zip up files and go to the management console. A one shot deal!
First off you can use Traffic Manager, or VM Load Balancing, or you could actually use both! It all depends on what you are trying to do.
VM load balancing:
1.Works only with VMs that are in a single region
2. Only does Round Robin
3.Works at the TCP/UDP level, routing traffic between one or more private endpoints that sit behind a public endpoint
This is an excellent example for load balancing Virtual Machines.
The information in this post applies to connecting Visual Studio 2008 to Team Foundation Server 2010, 2012, 2013.
Before beginning I am assuming that you already installed Visual Studio 2008 on your workstation and did the following:

Now you will perform the following steps to connect to your Team Foundation Server from Visual Studio 2008:
Open the Tools menu and click on the “Connect to Team Foundation Server…” option.
Click on the “Servers…” button.
Click the “Add…” button.
Supply http://blah:8008/tfs/YourCollectionName for the server name field where “blah” is the Team Foundation Server for your account and “YourCollectionName” is the collection name.
When prompted, supply your sign-in credentials.
