Description

Serving up content on the Internet is something our web sites do daily. But are we doing this in the fastest way possible? How are users in faraway countries experiencing our apps? Why do we have three webservers serving the same content over and over again? In this session, we'll explore the Windows Azure Content Delivery Network or CDN, a service which makes it easy to serve up blobs, videos and other content from servers close to our users. We'll explore simple file serving as well as some more advanced, dynamic edge caching scenarios.

      Great intro.  Established a compelling purpose and showed how to leverage the Azure solution.  Well worth watching.

      HTTP/2 ftw! CDNs, minifying, combining files, etc. is so 2010! ;-)
