Building a SPA with Angular 4 and Firebase
Even after all the advances made in cloud services and web technology, building even simple web apps is time consuming and difficult. Angular with the Firebase real-time NoSql backend is the perfect startup web developer toolset to quickly bring your ideas to market. In this session I will create a fully functional single page web app using Angular and Firebase. Firebase is much more than a real-time database. Learn how to use its out-of-the-box features like authentication and cloud messaging along with the RESTful api for data.
Which Azure Database Should I Choose?
Deciding which of the many database options to choose from in Azure can be overwhelming. There are many options, and it’s impossible for everyone to know all of them. Traditionally, the choice has been to select which relational database to choose. But with all the NoSql databases available, there are many more choices that may be a better fit for your application. What are the trade offs among all the choices? Why pick just one? I will give some practical examples of how to combine different types of databases. Microsoft released Document DB a couple of years ago, which was their first managed NoSql cloud database. Just recently Cosmos DB has expanded those offerings and made it easier than ever to use. Cosmos DB is a service that contains several types of databases: Relational, Key Value Pair, Document and Graph. I will explain what each of these are, along with some code samples for each one to get you started. You will leave this session with a greater understanding of the different types of NoSql databases and what kinds of problems each of them solves best.
