Implementing an Event Sourcing strategy on Azure

Presented by: Eldert Grootenboer

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...

Monolith Decomposition and Evolutionary Architectures: How to Safely Modernize Legacy Systems

Presented by: Ben Hoffman

Replacing and re-engineering a new system to replace a legacy or monolithic system, in its entirety, is risky. And after significant investment, the new system often suffers from many of the same issues the old system had. When you combine long development times with big-bang-style deployment, the...

Time traveling in the cloud. Time series analytics with Microsoft Azure.

Presented by: Sam Vanhoutte

The data collected in IoT scenarios are often thought of as a ‘time series”. Through this data it’s possible to understand the past and use this data to anticipate the future. But time traveling is never straight forward. That’s why in this session Sam will walk you through the processing of...

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

Presented by: Nate Berent-Spillson

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...

Docker for .NET Developers

Presented by: David Merk

Seamless CI/CD and releases, if that’s the Docker dream… why is it such a nightmare for .NET developers? If you’ve seen Docker done well using .NET Core, you’ll agree Docker empowers a CI/CD pipeline so simple you could trust an intern to trigger the release. In this session, you’ll...

Scaling Systems: Architectures that grow

Presented by: Kendall Miller

It's harder than ever to predict the load your application will need to handle in advance, so how do you design your architecture so you can afford to implement as you go and be ready for whatever comes your way. It's easy to focus on optimizing each part of your application but your application...

Build and Ship It!

Presented by: Joseph Guadagno

If you are like me, you have many libraries, helpers, utilities that you have built over time that you use for multiple projects. You've thought about publishing them to NuGet so you can share them with other projects or your team but didn't because they contain secrets, intellectual property, or...
