Are you really doing microservices?

Saturday, March 24th, 2018 at 8:30 am in

Microservices aren’t small services. A microservice architecture is a very different approach to building applications. If you’ve done web services or WCF services or Web API REST services then you know what services are and you’re ready to take the next step and see how large applications are designed in a manageable way with a microservices architecture. Examples will be shown using Azure SQL Database, Cosmos DB, .NET Core, Azure functions and a variety of UIs. Come ready to see application development in a cool new way.

Get ready to develop apps for ultra-modern businesses

Friday, March 23rd, 2018 at 8:30 am in

Sold OutMicroservices aren’t just small services. A microservice architecture is a very different approach to building applications. In this hands-on lab we’ll build the data and services layers as well as server-less features for an ultra-modern business plan and marry them to pre-built web and mobile apps for an end-to-end example that demonstrates how apps are now being built. This is not the architecture you’re accustomed to!

You’ll need an Azure subscription, so sign up for a free trial on Thursday if you don’t already have one. We’re also going to use Visual Studio 2017 with at least the “ASP.NET and web development”, “Azure development”, “Data storage and processing” and “.NET Core cross-platform development” workloads installed. The “Mobile development with .NET” workload is optional. The free Community Edition is fine. If you are running Windows 10 Pro or above and want to use Docker containers for the lab, please install the latest Docker For Windows from https://docs.docker.com/docker-for-windows/install/ as well.

Angular 2 for ASP.NET Developers

Saturday, October 22nd, 2016 at 1:30 pm in

Angular.js 2 is the state of the art when it comes to web applications. Whether you’re an MVC or Web Forms developer, after this session you won’t find it hard to make the leap to client-side single page app (SPA) development. You’ll see how to use Angular.js 2 and TypeScript to build amazing web experiences in the browser instead of on the server as you take all of the familiar architecture, patterns and best practices you know in C# or VB.NET and apply them to a new environment. Modern web applications are just not that hard once you learn a little bit of the lingo and see a few examples. This session cuts through the hype and shows you what you need to know to launch a successful transition from old to new and become one of the cool kids of web development.

Getting your head around the modern web

Friday, October 21st, 2016 at 8:39 am in

“An immersive experience for .NET developers”. It will start off touching on many of the hot topics and trends for the browser including Angular 2, TypeScript, React.js, Ember, Electron, etc. Then it will go into a follow-along demonstration of building a browser app with those technologies (not a lab per-se since we won’t be waiting on people to catch up or have helpers available to get everyone through the coursework). In the second half, we’ll discuss hot services topics and trends including Node.js, WebAPI, containers and cloud platforms (AWS and Azure). It will finish up with a follow-along demonstration of building the back end services and connecting the browser app to them.
