Akash Verenkar and Venkata Pochiraju are back on the Data Exposed show to show us the improvements they are making to the Data Migration Assistant. Since the last time they were on the show, they have added the ability to do Azure SQL Database assessment capabilities which they demo on today's show!
They begin the show by highlighting the 3 upgrade and migration scenarios such as migrating from older versions of SQL Server to SQL Server 2016, as well as migrating existing SQL Server on-premises or competitive databases to modern cloud platforms such as SQL Server on Azure VMs or Azure SQL Database.
At the [02:50] mark, they get into the purpose of today's show which is understanding the end-to-end migrations to Azure SQL Database, providing an end to end experience from finding migration blockers, providing auto fixes, and then migrating and deploying the database to Azure.
Akash and Venkata provide a high-level summary of how that takes place and how .bacpacs play a critical role in the migration. Then, at the [06:15] mark it is demo time, and Akash spends the next 6 minutes showing the Data Migration Assistant 3.0, walking us through an Azure SQL Database assessment, including database compatibility and feature parity.
We definitely look forward to having these two guys back to show the migration!

In this episode Chris Risner and Thiago Almeida are joined by Brady Gaster, Senior Program Manager focusing on Microsoft's technical documentation and the new docs.microsoft.com site. Brady joins us to talk about an Azure Tools extension he's been working on for Visual Studio Code which enables developers to create and access Azure resources from within VS Code. We walk through installing the extension into VS Code, authenticating against Azure, and then using several of the different capabilities of the tools.

This week James is joined by friend of the show Glenn Wester, Technical Solutions Professional at Microsoft, who talks to us about Appium-based automated mobile UI testing. There are many mobile automation frameworks to choose from when using Xamarin Test Cloud and we're proud to show off another option to choose from. We'll review our support for Appium showing a Java-based UI test driven by JUnit leveraging the Page Object Pattern and testing a Xamarin.Forms application. We'll overview running a test locally, upload a test suite to our device lab and show the results from our test in our web-based test report. We also take a sneak-peek at Visual Studio Mobile Center, Microsoft's mission control for mobile apps.

Thank you!Today, we are happy to announce the largest update to the toolkit since the launch a few months ago!You can get started following these steps, or preview the latest features by installing the UWP Community Toolkit Sample App from the Windows Store.As a reminder, the toolkit can be used in any app (across PC, Xbox One, Mobile, HoloLens and Surface Hub devices) targeting Windows 10 November Update (10.0.10586) or above. The few features that rely on newer OS updates are clearly marked in the documentation and in the Sample App.Here’s just a summary of what’s new in Version 1.3:Controls. Several new controls were added in this release, including some very popular requests from the community: WrapPanel. Positions child elements in sequential position from left to right or top to bottom, breaking content to the next line.TextboxMask and TextBoxRegex (attached properties).

Shows an animation with some content when the user should wait in some tasks of the app.ServicesOneDrive service. Roam user files through the new OneDrive service with a simplified API model (similar to StorageFolder). The new service makes it easy to authenticate OneDrive users and more in the same consistent way you have come to expect from the toolkit services.Microsoft Translator Service.

Display technology and usage scenarios have changed significantly since the time when many desktop app technologies were first introduced. Many desktop UI frameworks on Windows have, historically, struggled to keep up with modern usage scenarios such as handling multiple displays with different DPI values or handling dynamic DPI changes (docking/undocking, RDP, mixed-DPI). This has resulted in desktop applications that can render blurry or be sized incorrectly. In this session we'll discuss what Microsoft is doing to address these challenges, including new APIs and technologies targeted at high-DPI usage scenarios for desktop apps.

Karthik Bharathy joins Scott Hanselman to talk about extending the capability of PowerApps using Custom APIs. In this session, we will use PowerApps with Microsoft Cognitive Services API, a custom Image Upload API and the Camera control to build a cross platform app to detect the age, gender, smile of the user, similar to http://how-old.net. Karthik explains how to build custom logic can be hosted in an Azure web app or in an Azure Functions and connected to PowerApps using Swagger.(image)

It is a pleasure to have Luis Vargas back on the show to show us what's new with SQL Server in an Azure Virtual Machine since the last time he was here 10 months ago.
No slides and all demo as Luis first provides a quick overview of the available SQL Server offering in Azure Virtual Machines via Azure Marketplace. He shows all the different SQL Server VM images of versions and editions in the gallery, including SQL Server 2016 SP1 Express and Developer as well as SQL Server vNext on Red Hat Enterprise Linux!
Luis also spends a minute showing the BYOL (Bring Your Own License) templates and discusses options as to when those would be useful.
At the [10:15] mark Luis walks us through the creation of a SQL Server 2016 SP1 virtual machine to highlight the new and improved features available, including monitoring of OS diagnostics, automated backups and patching with scheduling, and storage configuration and optimization for optimum performance!
At the [32:00] mark Luis shows off the cool feature of being able to download the configuration template of your configuration which can be used to automate the creation and deployment of the virtual machines. VERY cool.
Luis wraps up the show showing auto-shutdown to automatically stop VMs when not used to save money. He then shows how easy it is to connect to the SQL VM via SSMS.
Great show, and we look forward to having Luis back to discuss High Availability!
