In this episode Chris Risner and Thiago Almeida are joined by Anton Babadjanov, Program Manager on the API Management team. Anton joins us to go over some of the new features API Management has released since the team was last on the show over a year ago. Anton starts with a brief review of API Management and then jumps into the new features, starting with it's presence in the modern Azure portal including adding new APIs, examining the steps and policies used with individual APIs, testing API calls, and more. Included in this is a look at the new VNet support for API Management. Anton then goes over one of the more highly requested features: support for SOAP web services. Next we take a look at how Role Based Access Control has been set up to map to capabilities within API Management.

Do you have performance bottlenecks? Do you have a lot of parallel calculations? Then try to use GPU with C#. With the new Alea GPU parallel GPU methods it is as easy as changing a few lines of code to utilize the power of GPUs. No GPU in your box? Don't worry, you can get them from Azure or other cloud providers. This Channel 9 cast explains how easy it is to run C# code on the GPU, with full debugging support in Visual Studio.

Our Hardware Friday post is something I've not seen mentioned to often, emulating a Raspberry Pi on your PC. Ilias Tsigkogiannis was written up a great how-to to get all the stuff you and and make it work...
I am very interested in trying simulators and emulators for popular IoT devices. One of those is the Raspberry Pi. As I was searching for simulators, I found that one of the best ones is QEMU. I found lots of information about how to use the QEMU simulator, in order to simulate a Raspberry Pi running Raspbian Wheezy (which is an older Raspbian version), but there was almost none for Raspbian Jessie (which is the latest Raspbian version). And the problem was that the steps that work for Wheezy, do not work for Jessie. So, in this article, I’ll explain how to do this for Jessie. The same steps should also work if you are running Linux, however I have not tried them in Linux, so I cannot be sure.
1. Download the QEMU emulator ...
2. Download Raspbian ...
3. Download the kernel ...
4. Expand the Raspbian image ...
5. First boot (to fix a setting) ...
6. Expand the disk ...
7. Increase the swap file for better performance ...
8. Use SSH for better performance ...
9. Overclock the CPU for better performance ...
10. Change internalization options from British (en-GB) to American (en-US) ...
11. Change the screen resolution ...
12. Final observations ...
