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
Nelly & Stafford
Nelly is a lead developer at Challenger Limited where she focuses on web development, leading the front-end development for Sitecore CMS websites. She speaks frequently and contributes to tech communities through running brown bags at work, supporting meetups, user groups and mentoring women in tech communities.
Stafford is a lead consultant at Readify in Sydney with 13 years commercial experience, and another 10+ years prior as a self-taught amateur. When he was nine, he saw his friend's name bounce around a computer screen as the result of a program written in Amiga's AMOS BASIC and he immediately became aware that if such technological marvels were possible with code, then anything was possible with code!
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.
