R is a language for statistical programming that is widely used among data scientists.
Last year Microsoft purchased Revolution Analytics, a leading R company. As a result, Microsoft recently released Visual Studio Tools for R and announced that R is going to be included in the upcoming SQL Server 2016.
In this session, we will take a look at R from an introductory point of view and see how the power of R can be used by .NET developers. Some of the highlights are:
- What is R and why does it matter?
- A brief look into statistics and visual data presentation
- R in a nutshell
- “There is no R in Develop, but there is one in DevelopeR”. R Basics.
- Power of R: some basic examples showcasing R
- A brief look at R in SQL Server 2016
- Building a dashboard with asp.net MVC and R (getting data from SQL Server as well as the internet)

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?”
