Take Command of AWS Command Line

4:00PM-5:10PM, Azure/Cloud 2 - Room 2065

Cloud providers like AWS continually deliver new features and capabilities each day, like pieces to an ever expanding puzzle. I've found an edge to the puzzle in AWS command line, and I'll share that edge with you in this beginner level session. We'll begin from first login, discovering command syntax, common command features and shortcuts, and how command line increases your understanding and ability to build confidently in the cloud.

The Fundamental Things Apply

4:00PM-5:10PM, DevOps - Room 3049

In today's highly iterative environments, the focus often is just on "software that works" and key elements such a robust design easily become neglected. Quite often the end result is a system that has reliability or scalability problems and is also difficult to maintain. Examining some of the core principles that have emerged over the past 30 years is likely to be a mixture of new experiences and reviews for today's developers. This session will review a number of items, including the set known as SOLID (originated by "Uncle Bob" Martin nearly 15 years ago) along with items that originated with Object Oriented Design. Common problems in today's software development will correlate with the relevant underlying principles. Bringing these principles to the forefront will demonstrate and correlate how a lack of attention to the foundational principles relates to common defects. NOTE: All code examples will be in C#, but may be applied to many languages/platforms/environments.

Connecting My 1988 Ford Bronco II To The Internet

4:00PM-5:10PM, IoT 1 - Room 3028

When I set out to fix my broken water temperature gauge in my 1988 Ford Bronco II, I didn't realize the journey it would set me on. I knew that I wanted to do a little more than just replace the gauge. I wanted to connect it to the internet. I have made plenty of little projects that proved I could read a sensor or blink an LED, and those were fun, but they weren't really teaching me much beyond the basics. So for this project, I wanted to take a more intense approach. I wanted it to be more than just a pet project — I wanted to learn the hard lessons about production-ready IoT software. I wanted to apply many of the same DevOps best practices I've been doing day-in and day-out in my role at Nebbia Technology: planning out features in a sane way, creating unit tests, using a continuous integration and continuous delivery pipeline, monitoring, and doing all of this with a production-first mindset. I've found that DevOps practices like these have made other types of software dev

Introduction to Python for .NET Developers

4:00PM-5:10PM, Open Topics 1 - Room 3032

Python has increased in popularity in the recent years. Even Microsoft has adopted it as a main supported technology in Azure, Visual Studio Code, Visual Studio, SQL Server, etc. However, my experience has shown that Python continues to be a foreign language for most .NET developers. Are you a .NET developer? Have you ever wondered what you could use Python for? Curious as to how it compares to your current toolset? Then this session might be for you. This session assumes no prior Python knowledge. I would provide introduction to the Python programming language, at times comparing it with C#; as such familiarity with C# is assumed, but not required. This is a beginner's session.

GraphQL & NestJS - Forget the REST

4:00PM-5:10PM, Web Development 1 - Room 2056

GraphQL is a new way of thinking about the APIs. REST APIs are REST-in-Peace APIs. GraphQL is a type-safe specification and protocol, which means it pairs well together with TypeScript, a superset of JavaScript that adds strong typing and other features to the ECMAScript specification.In this session, we are going to see how NestJS - Typescript Node Express framework supports GraphQL features such as Mutation, Subscriptions, Schema stitching and Resolvers

Improve distributed system and web app performance by using in-memory cache system.

4:00PM-5:10PM, Web Development 2 - Room 2057

Web applications often integrate with APIs for the purpose of retrieving data from a disk-based storage system like SQL Server. This poses challenges due slow queries and amount of data sent down the wire. In this presentation, we discuss the performance concerns with this type of architecture especially for big data scenarios. Oscar Garcia shows how to address those concerns by following a series of steps in which a web application is refactored with minimum changes to support an in-memory data store and data streaming. We start by discussing the challenges when using data queries. We structure the data for in in-memory storage. We replace the API requests with real-time data streaming. Learning Objectives: SQL Server Query Challenges Redis Cache Basic Operations and Structure Angular App with Socket.io integration Node.js Backend with Socket.io and Redis support Real-time data integration
