In this session, Chris is once again joined by Lee Williams. Chris and Lee talk through industry trends around Game Streaming (i.e. streaming games to your device, rather than livestreaming what you’re playing to others), and the opportunities this brings to game creators and consumers.
Playing games has always been a social experience. Whether it’s board games, sports or video games - a multiplayer component is common. We see these experiences becoming forms of entertainment (e.g. watching our favourite sports teams compete). This trend continues into the Gaming Industry, as we see the growth of eSports in Gaming, as well as streamers regularly broadcasting over on YouTube and Twitch. Chris is joined by Lee Williams, as they talk through these trends and how Cloud has enabled this transition.
Azure Front Door - It’s an Azure Service that has been generally available for quite some time. It went Generally Available (GA) in April of 2019 after being in Public Preview since September 2018. It’s had several updates since, including a slew of Web Application Firewall enhancements, Rules Engine support and much more. But did you know Microsoft released the Azure Front Door Standard and Premium SKUs in preview in Feburary of 2021? So, what are they? How do they compare to the aforementioned Azure Front Door offering? And when would you want to think about using Azure Front Door compared with Azure CDN? We’ll be covering all of those points in this post.
You’ll have probably spotted by now that cloud architecture is a passion area of mine, and a regular topic that features on Cloud With Chris. We’ve talked a lot about Cloud Design Patterns and requirements-driven engineering in the past, as well as the various pillars of software quality. But one area that hasn’t been explored too much is the Azure Well-Architected Framework. So in this blog post, we’ll explore that, and identify how it can be used in your own projects.
