Learn how to build a cloud application that scales to hundreds of servers serving hundreds of thousands of requests each second. We'll talk about a traditional n-tier architecture and look the drawbacks. Then, we'll take a look at some ways that we can utilize the power of multiple machines, including an introduction to a completely new cloud programming model and actor framework known as Orleans. Learn how Orleans powers the Halo game and how you can use it to build massively scalable systems. I'll use Azure as my cloud platform of choice, but the session applies to any cloud provider.

I've been having a blast working with Orleans, so please check it out!
