NDC Melbourne 2021 will be a full day of conference sessions streamed live on the NDC Conferences Youtube Channel free of charge.
9am: Keynote with Scott Hansleman
Join Scott Hanselman for a discussion about what's beyond mentorship. What's the difference between mentorship and sponsorship.
What's the role of the senior engineer as a colleague to an early-in-career engineer? What must we do to welcome the next generation of creators, and what are your responsibilities? Let's facilitate a welcoming culture of learning and exploration and normalize not knowing the answer.Breaks // Panel Show // Quiz:
Join our hosts Melissa, William and Lars in the breaks.
10:15am - David Wengier - Records Deep Dive: What, Why and How
Records were a new feature introduced in C# 9 that allow concise definition of immutable data classes that you may have already seen or even used. In order to support them there were also related new concepts introduced like "primary constructors", "init accessors" and "with expressions", and there are also some traps with records that you should be aware of, like for example I probably shouldn't have referred to them as "immutable data classes".
11:15am - Michelle Manning - GitHub Copilot: How to write better code with your AI pair programmer
Powered by OpenAI Codex, GitHub Copilot is a powerful way for developers to write better code.
Whether you're working on a new language, trying to solve a problem, or exploring new APIs, Copilot helps you by suggesting whole lines of code or entire functions. Join MishManners as she walks through a demo of GitHub Copilot.
12:15pm - Alex Mackey - Introduction to Digital Twins with the Azure Digital Twin Platform
A digital twin is a virtual representation of an object or process in the real world. The concept of digital twins was arguably first popularised by NASA in the 70s as part of the Apollo 13 program but today is used by organisations from numerous industries and provides a multitude of benefits.
In this session we'll:
• Look at why you'd want to create a digital twin in the first place
• Implement our own digital twin(s) using Azure Digital Twin platform
• Predict where digital twins could be heading in the future
What if I said you could take it step by step? What If I said you could stop halfway and still gain a lot?
14:14 - Peter Myers - Power BI Embedded Analytics Explained
In this presentation is about embedding rich, interactive data visualizations in your apps.
You will learn all about Power BI embedded analytics, including authentication methods, working with the Power BI client APIs, enforcing row-level security, licensing and management. This session specifically targets experienced app developers.
15:15 - Kris Howard - Machine Learning for Software Developers (...and Knitters)
Advances in AI/ML tooling make it possible for anyone - not just data scientists - to create models that identify business risks, carry on conversations, drive cars, optimise vaccines, and even create art.
In this session Kris will give an overview of the state of AI/ML and some of its more creative applications, as well as a few services AWS has developed to make it easier to get started. Then she’ll dive deep into a demo application she built: an attempt to teach a computer to reverse engineer knitting patterns, in her evolving quest to build the world's first knitting replicator. (Yes, really.)
