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

13:15 - Phil Nash - 4 Steps from JavaScript to TypeScript (

You've got a JavaScript project and you're coming round to the idea of TypeScript. You like the idea of static typing and improved IDE experience. It is finally time to make the move, but how do you go about it? Is this going to be a big and inconvenient change to the codebase?

What if I said you could take it step by step? What If I said you could stop halfway and still gain a lot? 
Over this talk we'll take an existing JavaScript project and move it to TypeScript, noting the new benefits we get at each step of the transition. By the end you'll have a blueprint for moving your project to TypeScript and be confident that you can go as far as you and your team needs to

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.)

Cloudy with a Chance of Mobile: .NET Everywhere with MAUI with Matt Goldman

When Micros​oft first launched .NET, the vision was to offer a viable alternative to Java and the JVM - a runtime and associated language(s) that could run anywhere. With MAUI, that original dream is becoming a reality.

Whether you're building for cloud, mobile, browser, desktop, IoT devices, servers, embedded systems...the list goes on and on - you can write code in .NET and it will run anywhere. With a dash of .NET, a pinch of Blazor, and a sprinkling of MAUI, you no longer need to React to any funny angles - you can have your .NET cake and eat it too.

In this talk, Matt welcomes you into his full stack .NET dream, and shows you how you can build anything in .NET, and run it everywhere.​

Automagic Tenant Config for Mobile Apps

How do you get environment- or tenant-specific config into your users' hands? For consumer apps where everyone's configuration is the same, this isn't a problem. But for Enterprise apps with a unique configuration for each tenant or environment, your users need their config to get up and running.

When deploying a web application to different environments or tenants, developers and sysadmins can configure those environments, either manually or with DevOps, and your users don't have to worry. With mobile or desktop apps, for managed devices we can pre-configure these using SOE or MDM tools, but deploying configuration to unmanaged devices is the real challenge.

In this talk, Matt looks at some different options for automating this for your users, to reduce human error and improve the UX.

The 5 important questions about .NET 5

​Back in 2016 Microsoft made the brave step of building a brand new .Net Core away from the classic "Full Framework" .NET. This meant they were able to hit the "Redo button" in so many ways, bringing us the modern, open-source, fast and cross-platform framework that we use today.

But now in 2020, Microsoft have delivered what they promised us in the roadmaps. The story has come full-circle with the release of .NET 5 – finally bringing us back to one .NET to rule them all.

In this talk we’ll answer the 5 important questions:

1. What will .NET 5 mean for my .NET Core projects?
2. What will .NET 5 mean for my old full-framework projects?
3. What’s new?
4. What’s coming next?
5. Will Microsoft ever get better at naming things? (Or does it make total logical sense)

In this talk, William explains how for many years the only option we had was to use JavaScript/TypeScript frameworks such as Angular, React, Vue, etc. While these frameworks are wildly popular and fully capable, .NET developers feel the pain and waste a lot of time gluing a JavaScript front end web application framework to a C# ASP.NET Core backend. The pain increases with different tooling for the front-end and back-end.

Blazor WebAssembly is now generally available and adoption rates are skyrocketing. Come see William demonstrate how easy Blazor is for developing enterprise web applications.

DISCLAIMER: No JavaScript will harmed during this presentation.

Details:

All developers should be writing automated tests. In fact, modern developers should be doing Clean Testing.

Systems that adhere to the principles of Clean Architecture are independent of UIs, databases, frameworks, and other external concerns. As a result, the domain and business logic, the most important parts of the system, are completely isolated from external concerns. This makes writing automated tests, a whole lot easier.

In this talk, join Jason Taylor from SSW as he uncovers a simplified approach to automated testing with Clean Architecture. You will learn about unit tests, integration tests, and subcutaneous tests, along with tools, frameworks, and most importantly, where to focus your efforts. You leave this talk fully prepared to implement your own simplified approach to automated testing with Clean Architecture.


​​About the Speaker:

Jason Taylor is a solution architect, trainer, mentor, and full-stack developer with 20 years of professional experience. Currently specializing in teaching and building enterprise applications utilizing .NET Core, Angular, Vue, and Azure. Jason loves a challenge and is skilled at progressing from a simple proposal into a well-defined, coded, and tested solution. ​

20 Nov 2019 (6:00 PM - 9:00 PM AEDT)624 days ago

Technology:.NET Core

Type:User Groups

Presenter:Liam Elliott

​Remote procedure calls (RPC) have been around since the beginning of time – most of them never copped a speeding ticket! Many of us have lived through XML-RPC -> SOAP -> .NET Remoting -> WCF -> JSON-RPC and most recently -> REST.

Back in 2015 Google threw their hat into the ring with gRPC, promising faster more efficient communication, cross-platform clients and streaming request and responses.

In 2019 Microsoft released .NET Core 3 which includes gRPC.
During this exciting session, Liam will explain and demo why you need to add this cool new Microsoft feature into your new .NET projects. Your services will be so fast you will smell the burning rubber!

About Liam:
Liam is a SSW Solution Architect who builds enterprise applications on the Azure platform. He has vast experience with modern enterprise applications and his recent projects use ASP.NET Core Web Api's with front-ends on both Angular and React.

Like many of his peers, Liam’s first memories of a computer were with a Commodore 64, writing programs in BASIC (Goto statements and all). His love for computers evolved into hacking the games in QBASIC. Since 2005 Liam’s passion has been developing on the .NET platform. He shares his experience for modern technologies through user groups and training events.​

​Sydney .NET User Group October:

The 7 Deadly Presentation Sins, with Samantha & Andrew Coates

What makes a great presentation? More importantly, what are the elements that can destroy a great presentation, even if the content itself is technically sound?

In this session Samantha and Andrew Coates demonstrate seven sins that must not be committed in a presentation, why and how a presentation can suffer from committing them, and how to avoid accidently committing them.

Ironically, when we practice we deliberately commit presentation sins. We stop, we fix, we repeat and refine. Like elite musicians, dedicated technical presenters typically spend many solitary hours doing this, which of course is necessary to master any content. But none of these practice processes has a place on the presentation stage. In presentation we must trust, believe, create, and keep going in the face of any adversity – a completely different process which in itself must be rehearsed.

In order to give a magnificent presentation, we must PRACTICE giving a magnificent presentation. The only way to do this is by regularly and deliberately creating pressure situations in which we can practice NOT committing the presentation sins.

Covering everything from wrong notes to blue screens of death, this dynamic and multi-talented pair not only break down the elements of successful and unsuccessful presentations, but also outline how one can give a truly engaging presentation every time, no matter how basic or complex the content.

​Melbourne .NET User Group October Double Header: 'Azure Containers: From Zero to Kubernetes' with Anthony Ison & 'I’m a .NET Developer in a Pure Functional Programming Universe' with Stephan Dekker

Talk 1:
Have you heard about containers and Kubernetes but just haven’t found any time to learn about them? Come along to this talk and discover what containers are, how to make them and how to deploy them into an Azure Kubernetes cluster.

About the speaker:
Anthony is a Senior Software Architect at SSW's Brisbane office. He brings 20 years of development experience across many industries including stockbroking, micro-finance and point of sale. He has a keen interest in software and database performance, reducing running costs and reducing problems through simple solutions. His experience in team lead and agile coaching roles contributes to his ability to produce great outcomes for clients.

In his spare time, he loves learning new technologies and development techniques and blogging about these adventures. He is strongly motivated to give back to the community as a token of gratitude to all of the great mentors he's had throughout his career. He would escape to a hobby farm in the country, given half a chance, even though his horticultural skills leave much to be desired.

Talk 2:
I believe the first step is to acknowledge an addiction. So here we go:
I am Stephan Dekker and I am TOTALLY addicted to pure functional programming. There… I’ve said it!

After developing with .NET for 18 years and counting (Yep, that’s right: .NET 1.1), I ended up working with a functional programming language called “Elixir”. This is my story of what this “functional programming” hype boils down to and how it is different to your everyday .NET development. Is it better? I think so, but you decide yourself!

About the Speaker:
Stephan has been working in the IT industry for 20+ years, he started developing embedded software and hardware before moving on to business applications. He has a passion for process improvements and has implemented process improvement frameworks several times at enterprise organisations including a Top 20 bank in the world.

Stephan has led teams in many capacities from Head of Engineering to Technical Project Lead and is a fan of agile techniques to build better software. His comfort zone is using Microsoft tooling and frameworks to deliver high-quality software, but other languages, operating systems and frameworks are within his capabilities.

He successfully delivered several high profile projects, including one that Microsoft published a case study about, he organised Codecamps with people attending from across the globe and now works on building a successful startup.Stephan has a wife and 2 daughters. When he is not geeking away behind the laptop he is sailing, riding his motorbike or renovating the house.
