SSW TV are proud sponsors of the Developer Developer Developer conference held twice a year in Sydney and Brisbane.
Here is Mehdi Khalili’s presentation from the 2012 DDD event in Sydney:
Many teams try Automated UI Testing and many fail. Automated UI Testing is hard: the tests take a lot of time to write and tend to be brittle and hard to maintain.
In this session, Mehdi Khalili will provide you with some practical advice on how to and how not to write your tests, introducing you to some UI testing ideas, patterns and frameworks that will help you write your tests faster while making them less brittle and easier to maintain.
This is an action packed video for testing enthusiasts.
Mr. Windows Phone
Want to develop your apps for mobile devices? You’ll need to install the right tools to get the job done. Visual Studio 2012 offers a powerful development environment to build great apps quickly. There are valuable 3rd party tools that you will need too.
Once you have the tools and you’re sold on the opportunity…What’s next?
Your time is a valuable asset so come and hear Nick explain how to:
- design for Windows Phone 8 Apps
- consider the differences between the phone and the desktop
- maximize code reuse between Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8
- jump over the XAML for Windows Phone hurdles
- work the Windows Store
- what 3rd party tools you will need?
- what’s in the Windows Phone Software Development Kit (SDK)
- what’s involved in starting with Xamarin? (aka creating iOS, Android and Mac apps in C#)
Jason Stangroome present a User Group on PowerShell v3. He discusses:
- Why developers should care about PowerShell
- What’s changed between version 2 and 3
- C# inside PowerShell
- C# extending PowerShell
- C# hosting PowerShell
Share We have now been hosting the Sydney .NET User Group for 20 Years! This is what we did to celebrate… You can see the User Group live stream at www.ssw.com.au/ssw/NETUG/live.aspx
TypeScript offers classes, modules, and interfaces to help you build robust components.
In this talk, Chris provides an introduction to the new world of TypeScript and will show how it applies to Windows 8.
In this presentation, Steve Smith discusses Common ASP.NET Design Patterns.
Design Patterns provide common templates for solving the same family of problems in a similar way. They also provide a higher-level language for software developers to use to describe approaches they might choose when designing a component of an application. In this session, you’ll learn about several of the most common, and useful, design patterns used by .NET developers today.
Topics of discussion:
- Stages of Learning
- A Tale From the Real World
SSW is proud to be able to say that we have been running the Sydney .NET User Group for over 20 years now. During that time we’ve had some great and memorable speakers sharing information about a range of .NET topics. SSW have kept evolving and we’re excited that our .NET User Group is now recorded and broadcast *Live* by our SSW TV team. It is then posted to our blog the following day.
We’ll be celebrating 20 years at this month’s Sydney .NET User Group with speakers from the US, Steve Smith (Wednesday) and Stephen Forte and Chris Sells (Thursday). This month will also feature some great (and expensive) lucky door prizes from Telerik, DevExpress, and Infragistics. You can come Wednesday or Thursday, or come on both if you’re keen.
Mr Unit Tests
Unit testing and Dependency Injection are good for you, yet these essential ingredients are missing from many projects.
In this session we will look at why many projects still don’t include unit tests, and some recipes for healthy projects that every coder should have in their recipe book.
Share Today, 84% of Agile teams are using Scrum. Gerard will guide you through what’s new in TFS 2012, changes in the Visual Studio Scrum template, how to use the new Agile project management tools, and many other best practices. He will create and manage a product backlog, forecast and plan work for a Sprint, …
Mr Web API
In this session, you will find out how to make a very REST friendly API using the new and shiny ASP.Net WebApi technology set shipped with MVC 4. We will look at the way we have exposed Api’s in the past, and how that has changed overtime to what we have today.
We will examine how to create our Api to automatically handle HTTP verbs, easy support of multiple content types, usage logging, various media handling and much more. If you are creating a new Api, or are currently using ASMX, WCF, WCFWebApi or MVC to expose your Api, come and see how to do it using the new kid on the block.
