Building websites on azure – creation, debugging, SEO, & scaling all in one!


Creating a website can be a daunting task – Do I host it? have another company do it? Should I use WordPress, Tomcat, or write my own? What happens when I get a lot of traffic?

I plan on demystifying this for you by illustrating how to get your website off the ground and deploy it to the cloud. Even better, we’ll learn to how to debug it and understand what all of your visitors will be seeing with a tool called VorlonJS. Want to convert it to a mobile app on iOS or Android? Not a problem! What if I want it to appear in Google search results? We’ll cover that, too!

This is perfect for veterans or newcomers alike, as we’ll cover a variety of topics and areas typically not covered by web developers.

David Voyles

I am a construction worker turned Technical Evangelist at Microsoft and based out of Philadelphia, PA. My biggest passion is in working with students and startups across the country, to help get their projects off the ground.

My work frequently has me building projects on game consoles, the web, and high performance mobile applications.

My role has me speaking in front of audiences of all ages and technical backgrounds on a weekly basis. From that experience, I’ve learned to put on dynamic and engaging presentations which keep the audience involved in a dialogue, instead of being lectured to.
