NDC returned to Sydney this year and SSW TV was there to catch all the action with our Ask Me Anything! sessions.
As usual there were a host of top industry pros talking about various subjects related to software development. SSW TV was there to run the ‘Ask Me Anything’ booth, where we grabbed some of those speakers after their sessions and talked about a number of topics.
In this AMA, SSW’s Brendan Richards interviewed Troy Hunt.
Together they talk about everything from how to Hack Your Career, how Troy got started in Internet Security, to time travel.
About the speakers
Mr Internet Security
Brendan Richards is an SSW Solution Architect based in Brisbane. Over the past 18 years he has designed, developed and delivered many successful enterprise web solutions using a diverse spectrum of platforms and technologies: stretching from Perl/CGI on Linux in the 90s, through PHP and Java, to .NET and Angular. His current specialisations include Linux, .NET Core, Entity Framework, Angular 2 and Elastic Search.
Troy is a Microsoft Regional Director and MVP, Pluralsight author and world-renowned internet security specialist. He spends his time teaching developers how to break into their own systems before helping to piece them back together to be secure against today’s online threats. He’s also the creator of “Have I been pwned?”, the free online service for breach monitoring and notifications. Troy regularly blogs at troyhunt.com from his home in Australia.
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.
“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.
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?”
Explaining problems can be really hard. Often, when you are trying to talk with someone about it, they get lost and frustrated because they don’t fully understand the context.
