Rewriting History With Git

Presented by: Steven Hicks
Time: Thursday 11:45 AM - 12:45 PM

Git is an amazing tool for version control. One can get a lot done with only a few commands — commit, merge, pull, and push. But Git is much more powerful than these few commands! Did you know you can remove accidentally-committed files? Include only a few specific commits from another branch?...

Implementing an Event Sourcing strategy on Azure

Presented by: Eldert Grootenboer
Time: Thursday 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

In recent years the Event Sourcing pattern has become increasingly popular. By storing a history of events it enables us to decouple the storage of data from the implementation of the logic around it. And we can rebuild the state of our data to any point in time, giving us a wide range of...

If You Don’t Have a Failing Test, You Don’t Have S***

Presented by: Nate Berent-Spillson
Time: Friday 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

My go-to technique for just about every problem is a failing unit test. Many developers think of unit tests as something they're forced to write to hit some coverage metric, but when you look at it as a way to prove or disprove a hypothesis—it becomes a very powerful tool for problem-solving. It's...
