ASP NET Core Beyond the Introduction - Chris Klug

NDC Oslo - 2021-11-29 - Chris Klug

There are a lot of “getting started” talks in the ASP.NET Core world, but they won’t take you very far in the real world. What if you already know what the Startup class does, how configuration is handled, and what Kestrel is? Well, that’s where this talk might become interesting.

Instead of covering the basics of how to get up and running, this talk will have a look at some of the more…how to put it…complex areas of ASP.NET Core. Instead of looking at how you build a basic Hello World website, it looks at things like building custom middlewares and model binders, how we can do URL rewriting and run background tasks. And more!

With all the demos to be presented, and the limited amount of time to do it in, there will be no introduction to ASP.NET Core. There will be no “this template includes…”. Instead there will be a quick jump right into the deep end, and a big focus on expanding you knowledge of some of the more advanced abilities built into the framework!

Developing microservice applications with Dapr - Jakob Ehn

NDC Oslo - 2021-11-29 - Jakob Ehn

Moving to microservices architecture brings with it a lot of complexity. Things like state management, service discovery and resilient service communication becomes very important and needs to be implemented properly when building distributed systems.

Dapr is a new portable, event-driven runtime that makes it easy for enterprise developers to build resilient microservices applications, by providing best practice implementations as building blocks that you can use in your distributed applications.

Join me in in this session to learn about how Dapr works, which problems it solves and how to get started with it.

Event-driven computing with Kubernetes - Jakob Ehn

NDC Oslo - 2020-06-08 - Jakob Ehn

Event-driven architectures is very common in a microservices world, enabling flexible and decoupled designs for the applications that we build.

But eventing is also very useful when it comes to our infrastructure and CI/CD platforms. Being able to chain together containers in simple or complex workflows, triggered by different events coming from inside or outside the cluster, opens up a world of possibilites.

In this session we will look at two event-based platforms for Kubernetes:

* Brigade brings event-based scripting to Kubernetes, making it easy to chain together containers and run them serially or in parallell, triggered by events such as GitHub events, Docker pushes or any other trigger. We'll look at how we can automate deployments to Kubernetes when a Pull Request is created, and removes it once the PR is completed

* KEDA (Kubernetes-based Event Driven Autoscaling) enables autoscaling for event driven Kubernetes workloads. KEDA supports multiple event sources, such as Kafka, RabbitMQ and Azure Service Bus, and natively integrates with Azure Function tooling. Scaling out the number of pods based on the number of messages in our message queue is a perfect example of the power that KEDA brings, which will be show during this session

A Developer’s Introduction to Kubernetes - Chris Klug

NDC London - 2020-01-27 - Chris Klug

Ok, so you know your Docker. You know how to create images and start containers. That’s cool, but where do we go from here? Well, all the cool kids are talking about Kubernetes and container orchestrators, and how they are like magic pixie dust to your applications. How they allow you to create solutions that are automatically load balanced, self-healing and even provides seamless rolling updates that allow you to release new versions with zero downtime. And knowing you, you probably want some of that too!

Honestly though, it isn’t magic, and It won’t “just work”! It can seem pretty close to magic though, but as long as you understand how it works, you can use it to bring your applications hosting to the next level. With the operative words being “understand it”… Unless you know what you are doing, it can’t really help you…but that’s where this talk comes in!

In this talk, we will start out by looking at how you can set up your local development environment to run Kubernetes based applications. After that, we will look at the architectural building blocks that make up Kubernetes , and then go on to look at some of the great features that Kubernetes give you, and how you can take advantage of them in your projects.

Most Kubernetes talks tend to focus on the DevOps side of things. And even if that’s where Kubernetes has the most impact, there are still quite a few things for us developers to understand before we can build applications that can be allowed in to the Kubernetes world.

Durable Functions, Micro Services, Singletons & Orchestration - Alan Smith

IglooConf - 2020-01-17 - Alan Smith

Durable Functions, Micro Services, Singletons & Orchestration

Keeping your builds green using Docker - Jakob Ehn

NDC Sydney - 2019-10-14 - Jakob Ehn

With the number of technologies, languages and platforms that is part of most projects today just keeps on increasing, beginning work on a new project can be daunting. We often end up spending a lot of time installing the correct version of SDK's and build tools until we can make the project build and run. And then we have the same requirements for our build environment, and too often we find that build failures are due to differences between the local development machines and the build server environment,

In this session you will learn how to use Docker to define and run your builds both locally and on the build server. By describing your builds in Dockerfile we can make sure that it will build anywhere, without any other dependencies than Docker.


We will also look at how we can run build agents inside a Docker container to make sure that our build infrastructure is immutable and reliable.

Add more protection with HTTP Security Headers - Cecilia Wirén

UCP - 2019-02-25 - Cecilia Wirén

The server is sending your users content along with some HTTP Response Headers. Some of those headers is called Security Headers since they strengthen your application security. Only one little problem; you have to add them yourself. Statistics indicates that they are barely used. Let us change that! Learn what headers you can implement and what to consider when doing that as well as how to add them into .NET and .NET Core.

A service a day keeps the servers away - Peter Örneholm

SweTugg - 2019-02-07 - Peter Örneholm

Whether you are building an app, a website or an IoT device it has become extremely important to bring added value to your consumers at a high rate. Putting money and energy into making your product the best choice on the market is a key to success, but many companies are still spending thousands of dollars on setting up and maintaining good 'ol servers which provide little to no added value. Shifting to services will keep the servers away.

In this session we will look at why and how you should utilize services in Azure to take great ideas to market in no time while saving a ton of money. You will be familiarized with many of the available services and learn the details of a key few. This session is not only relevant for you as an architect or CTO, but also for you as a developer if you are interested in how to build your solutions based on services in Azure. How nice would it be to host websites, store data and search millions of documents without ever thinking about doing yet another Windows update?

Real programmers commit to master - Jakob Ehn

SweTugg - 2019-02-07 - Jakob Ehn

Continuous delivery and DevOps is all about delivering value faster to our end users while keeping the quality at a high level and reducing the downtime to a minimum. Traditional development strategies such as feature and release branching allows us to work and stabilize in isolation, but by doing so we are no longer integrating continuously which in the end will slow us down. So, how can we whip new code as often as possible (even every commit) without breaking stuff in production?

In this session you will learn about techniques such as Feature Flags, A/B testing, Canary releases and Dark Launches and how we can implement this using Azure DevOps, Microsoft Azure and Application Insighs to be able to ship new functionality into production as fast as possible, and learn about how these features are being used so that we can learn and improve along the way.

A lap around Azure DevOps - Jakob Ehn

NDC London - 2019-01-28 - Jakob Ehn

Azure DevOps (previously known as Visual Studio Team Services) is a broad product suite with tools that assists small and large software development teams that want to deliver high quality software at a rapid speed.

In session we will walk through all major features in Azure DevOps, such as Azure Boards, Azure Pipelines and Azure Repos, and look at how we can continuously deliver value to or end users and implement DevOps practices such as Infrastructure as Code and testing in production using Azure.

Design your architecture for Continuous Delivery - Jakob Ehn

SweTugg - 2018-02-08 - Jakob Ehn

Continuous delivery is more popular than ever before, with more and more teams doing continuous integration and using cloud platforms for faster delivery. But no matter how good your tooling is, if your architecture doesn't allow you to easily change, build and deploy small parts of your application with zero downtime you won't reap the benefits of continuous delivery.

In this session we will discuss how we can design our architecture to support continuous delivery. We will cover topics such as Micro services, designing for stability with patterns such as Circuit Breaker, and how we can achieve zero downtime deployments for our applications and databases.

Exempelbaserade specifikationer och tester med SpecFlow - Robert Folkesson

SweTugg - 2015-02-02 - Robert Folkesson

Ibland brukar man säga att bygga rätt sak är viktigare än att bygga saken rätt. Robert skulle vilja hävda att Exempelbaserade specifikationer kan hjälpa dig att bygga både rätt sak och saken på rätt sätt, det vill säga testbar, löst kopplad och enklare att refaktorisera. Det kan också hjälpa dig att få en levande dokumentation över systemet som går att verifiera med automatiserade tester, samt ett sätt att diskutera kring krav där utvecklare är mer engagerade från start.

I den här session går Robert igenom vad exempelbaserade specifikationer - eller ”Specification by example” som upphovsmannen Gojko Adzic döpt samlingen av mönster till - är för någonting. Robert utgår från ett nyligen genomfört kundprojekt och visar hur de använde verktyget SpecFlow för att skapa automatiserade tester av ett Web API med exempelbaserade specifikationer.
