Deploy and Run Container Based Applications at Scale with App Service on Linux

Hosting more than 1 million cloud applications, Azure App Service helps developers quickly build, deploy and scale applications without having to maintain the underlying web servers or operating systems. Now we are excited to bring these proven capabilities to Linux developers lowering the barriers to entry for building container based web applications. Come to learn how to use App Service on Linux to deploy your container-based web applications to the cloud in seconds. We will also share how you can use the open source tools that you are already familiar with while leveraging the built-in CI/CD, auto scaling and Web SSH features from App Service on Linux. Bring your code or bring your container, we have a solution for you to increase your productivity and run your applications at scale easily.

Azure Stack and Azure App Service, an overview for IT Professionals and Developers

What is Azure Stack? How does it offer customers and organizations a true Hybrid cloud? Add in Azure services such as Azure App Service and Azure Functions and using consistent tools and processes across public and hybrid cloud and developers suddenly have a highly productive platform on which to deliver applications and experiences. In this session I'll give an introduction and overview of Azure Stack and dive into how Azure App Service provides a consistent experience for developers wishing to deploy to the hybrid cloud, and I'll also show how an Azure Stack Cloud Admin can manage their Azure App Service Resource Provider deployment.
