As much as everyone loves having real-time applications, it is a pain to have them in high traffic websites. Scaling is a big issue which can be easily solved by using Azure’s SignalR Service.
How can we add real-time functionality to cloud hosted web applications? How can we test and handle high traffic volume without disrupting real-time capabilities? What new and interesting problems can we solve with a bi-directional-web feature-set?
Our speakers will explain, demonstrate and guide the audience through current ASP.NET Core SignalR technology and the possibilities that real-time features can give to modern web applications.
They will also show how to use Serverless technology in the Azure cloud with Azure App Services, Azure Storage and Azure Functions to use SignalR APIs to build your Real-time web application.
About the speakers
JK & Mathias Brandewinder
With 10 years of experience in software engineering across multiple industries like Museums, Government, Banks, gaming, entertainment, Jernej has worked on full stack development of native applications from mobile to desktop applications.
In addition to being an expert in ASP, .NET Core, Angular, and Azure DevOps, Jernej is also proficient on Windows platform development from legacy applications (using C#, WinForms, WPF, …) changing them into modern applications (using Windows Store, Windows Universal applications, and Xamarin). Lately, he's sharpening his skills with Cognitive Services as well as Machine Learning.
Orignally from the world of economics and operations research, Mathias has been writing code professionally for the past 10, working mostly in C# until he discovered F# and fell in love with it. His interests include applied math, machine learning and decision theory. Mathias is a Microsoft .NET / F# MVP, a board member of the F# Software Foundation and the author of “Machine Learning Projects for .NET Developers”.
Welcome to SSW Hangzhou! Our SSW China Marketing Manager Yang Shen gives us a walk-through showcasing the latest features and renovations made to our China office.
Do you know the value of Event Storming?
Often when building systems it isn’t super clear what all the nuts and bolts should be. There might be several major stakeholders or domain experts each with slightly different ideas understanding that causes contention in how the system functions.
“When you have a hammer, everything looks like a nail.”
This saying is often used for developers who want to use their favourite technology to solve every coding issue, even when it’s not the best fit. But this saying is actually relevant to us all.
No matter how hard we try, Azure Resource Manager (ARM) JSON templates aren’t easy or fun to maintain for enterprise platforms and applications.
Now we can flex our Infrastructure as Code (IaC) muscles using a new tool called Azure Bicep.
Visual Studio releases a new tool to migrate from ASP.NET to ASP.NET Core, GitHub Pages made easier with new deeply with GitHub actions and you too can win big with this year’s MAUI Beautiful UI Challenge.
A product backlog is a great way to see the fairly small broken up PBIs (Product Backlog Items) that make up your team’s “to do” list, but it can be a bit too zoomed in and makes it easy to stray from the product goals.
If you’re building installable binary apps (as opposed to web apps), it makes sense to use a cross-platform framework so that you don’t need to maintain multiple code bases.
Build Multi-Platform Applications for Mobile, Desktop and Web in .NET with the Uno Platform with Nick Randolph
The ability to deploy the same UI codebase across all platforms is a great productivity booster. But the application lifecycle starts much earlier – at design time. Uno Platform provides a Figma plugin, which eliminates the timely designer-developer handoff. In addition, the platform now provides a set of non-UI extensions to help jump-start your apps. Lastly, the VS Code extensions allows C# and XAML to use VS Code with IntelliSense-like experience, C# and XAML Hot Reload, and more.
Lars Klint joins us at NDC Melbourne to show us a really cool tip with Azure Serverless that might save you some money.
When you’re working, you will encounter issues that block you from progressing, and force you to do some googling, and investigation on how to move forward. These moments can be stressful, especially for junior developers and the question arises, “When should I ask for help?”
