From cars, to thermostats, through media players and embedded controllers, devices are being connected to the Internet at a furious pace. To share information, publish telemetry, provide global visibility, or just to have someone to talk to, cloud services need to connect devices and information at a massive scale. This session will discuss and demonstrate and coding practices (with a healthy dose of anti-patterns) from live Azure customers, with a focus on scalability and availability in an occasionally connected world.
