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)

Are you still collecting your feedback on paper handouts? Red, yellow, green feedback is faster, but what do you do with that? It's so time-consuming to go through the feedback forms afterward and maybe you just don't bother. What if you could collect feedback on a custom form, collate the data and get actionable results before your coffee gets cold?

Join Jernej Kavka on the journey from waiting weeks to get feedback from the user group talks to have the results in less than an hour for each event. You'll see how you can use Form Recognizer to parse the data straight from the page, what you can and can't do right now, as well as how you can leverage other Cognitive Services to get more details from the user feedback forms!​

​Blazor Web Apps - Goodbye JavaScript! I'm in love with C#

By this time next year most of us will be hooked on Blazor WebAssembly. Now we can run C# code directly in our browsers and get the added bonus of having a full .NET stack for building enterprise web applications.

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. ​

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.

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.

​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.

Presenter:Brendan Richards

User Group August: Clean Code with Entity Framework Core - presented by Brendan Richards

Object Relational Mappers like EF Core exist to take the drudgery out of getting your Object-Orientated C# code to talk to a relational database. Opinions on this vary from "ORMs are the Vietnam of Computer Science" to "If you write data access code, you are stealing from your client".

Like any powerful tool, EF Core can help you a great deal when used carefully, or cause chaos when thrown blindly at your codebase. This talk covers - An introduction to the primary features of EF Core - How to use EF Core with clean code principles - What's new in EF Core - Techniques to monitor performance and what to do about badly behaved queries.

About the Speaker:
Throughout his career, Brendan has been a big user and proponent of Open Source software. This has been applied to a broad variety of web-based programming projects spanning the last 17 years. Brendan has worked with an eclectic mix of languages, platforms and technologies including .Net, Java, PHP, Ruby and Perl across both Unix/Linux and Microsoft Windows platforms. This gives Brendan some unique perspectives on how different teams & platforms have tackled similar problems.

Since joining SSW in 2012, Brendan has been delivering great solutions on the .NET stack for his clients. He is also been sharing his knowledge and experience with the wider developer community by speaking at Conferences such as NDC and DDD as well as .NET User Groups

Some of his favourite things include:
- .NET Core - especially the cross-platform support for Linux
- Typescript and moden client side development with Angular CLI & ngrx
- Elastic Search
- Clean Architecture

Sydney .NET User Group: Machine Learning simplified for Developers with ML.NET - presented by Jernej "JK" Kavka

Do you want to try machine learning, but don't want to invest too much time learning a new programming language or some other complicated API?

Microsoft recently launched ML.NET 1.1 which is a great entry point for .NET developers and to gain experience building something with Machine Learning.

With the recent release of ML.NET Model Builder, we can create machine learning models by attempting to import raw data first and over time curate the data, to get better results.

JK will show you how ML.NET works, how to leverage Model Builder, experiment with training data and what to watch out for when building models.

About the Speaker:

Jk, is the main architect behind SSW's SophieAI: https://sswsophie.com/where he got to use his current passion for machine learning, and cognitive services.

With around 10 years of experience in software engineering, Jernej has worked on full-stack .NET development, mobile applications, and Microsoft Cognitive Services. He worked for some of Australia's largest corporations, with great customer satisfaction.​

Melbourne .NET User Group double header: Scrum and the “Product person” + Azure DevOps and CosmosDB

Session #1: The View From The Bridge – presented by Chris Drylie
The importance of having direction and the right focus is not as clear cut as most of companies think. Here we will review what the dev team is made up of and the why it is so important to have that ‘Product’ person as part of the team and not just someone who sits on the side lines telling you what people want and why they want it. Cutting through buzz words like Product Owner and Manager and understanding the core of these principles and what they bring to the team.

This presentation will discuss these challenges faced when a new Product member joins a development team that has never had this voice before and how to address these concerns that follow and the positive/negative outcomes of a change of this nature. How this increased volume, variety, and velocity of work being generated by these teams, but put them under a spotlight they had never been part of before. We will also touch on the point that this is not limited to any one methodology and how this person bridges the gap between the development team and the world.
