Preparing for Azure Service Fabric


For the modern software developer, Azure Service Fabric represents nothing less than the next evolutionary breakthrough in software programming on the Microsoft stack. Just as .NET represented a new integrated runtime for simplifying the construction of component-oriented applications, Azure Service Fabric represents a new runtime and platform for simplifying the construction and administration of service-oriented systems. Central to Azure Service Fabric’s development experience is its deployment-aware microservice-oriented programming model. This model represents a significant departure from the way .NET developers structure their code and their applications today. In this technically immersive session, Michael ‘Monty’ Montgomery will reveal a novel set of straightforward techniques you can use right now to prepare your existing .NET codebases for a smooth transition to the Azure Service Fabric. Monty will begin the session with the essentials of the Azure Service Fabric’s microservice-oriented programming model. Monty will then take an existing .NET WebAPI and systematically reshape its code to better transition to Azure Service Fabric to the point the code just recompiles verbatim to target the Azure Service Fabric.
