Session 1: Techniques and practices for testing Angular 2 with Duncan Hunter and Adam Stephensen
Writing frontend tests has always been hard, let us show you how to make testing easier in your Angular 2 applications.
From unit testing components and services to end-to-end testing your entire application, we will give you tips and techniques for testing in Angular 2.
This session will de-mystify Angular 2, highlight the lessons we wish we hadn’t had to learn the hard way. We will teach you what you need to know but aren’t going to find out until you are too far into your project to turn around. You will learn the pitfalls to avoid when building Angular 2 in production.
Session 2: Identity Server 4 with Angular 2 ASP.NET core with Ben Cull
API first websites are hugely popular thanks to client heavy frameworks like Angular. Securing them properly has always been a challenge, especially if you want to expose your API to third party developers. This is a demo heavy talk with practical implementations of Identity Server 4 in an ASP.NET Core app as a token server, Entity Framework and ASP.NET Identity for security, ASP.NET Core MVC for an API and an Angular 2 SPA application.

“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.
