Developing Business apps with WPF
At CODE Consulting, we've developed a framework for quick, efficient development of WPF applications. The CODE Framework gives developers all the tools they need for building enterprise applications with WPF and SOA.
Windows Phone + Windows Store development - from best tools to best apps
Following things will be covered:
1. How to achieve best performance and comfort while developing
2. What is important in current mobile development.
3. What have you looked at and didn't seen (some clues that everyone looks at and the idea behind them - those are important for top apps).
How Roslyn could change our way to code
Roslyn could really have a huge impact on our way to code. In this session, we will see how Roslyn can be leveraged to write better code, faster.
When JavasScript is more like the C++ than C# is
One the most misunderstood aspects of modern C++ is that much the code "runs" at compile time. In practical terms the C++ code is much more statically type safe. What is not immediately evident is that while the compile time code is fairly ""dynamic"" in that the type checking is occurring as the code is running (i.e. at compile time)
Starting a polyglot funtional programming group in your city
"In Nashville I launched NashFP (a polyglot functional programming group) in January 2012. It has grown into a large, warm community. Beginners feel welcome and experts feel rewarded. People drive in from other states to attend our labs. Microsoft developers (C#/F#) have a seat at the table with open source developers (Clojure/Erlang/Haskell) and everyone learns from everyone. Healthy, healthy.
What did NashFP get right? What have we learned? How do you launch a group in your city?"
All aboard the Titanic: Machine Learning with F#
Machine learning is one of the most exciting domains for software engineers right now - and F# is a great language for it. In this talk, we'll demonstrate how a couple of lines of F# can provide insight into the fate of the Titanic's passengers.
The story of building great and open F# community
The F# community is unique in the .NET world in the number of active contributors – over the last year, the F# Software Foundation (www.fsharp.org) was started to bring together open-source developers, Microsoft, commercial users of F#. The Foundation hosts a number of working groups that have greatly improved the F# story for data science and other areas and many key F# libraries are developed by the community.
How did that all happen? Why do things like F# Software Foundation matter? And how to encourage active contributions? And finally, can other technical communities take useful inspiration from what is happening in the F# world? You won’t get ultimate answers in this session, but we’ll have a great chance to discuss them together!
Visual Studio Feedback Channels
I will cover the various feedback channels that the visual studio, .net and tfs team makes available or monitors for feedback at different stages of the product development cycle. I will cover the new send a smile feature in VS 2013. I will also cover Microsoft Connect and the improvements we are planning to implement to improve the customer's experience. I will also show examples of how the channels are working to bring change to future versions of visual studio, .net and tfs. Customer feedback is an area that plays a critical role in determining which features to invest in.
Humanitaritan toolbox: Local groups owning projects
The humanitarian toolbox (http://humanitariantoolbox.net) wants o scale out, and have interested local groups run and maintain projects to provide software for humanitarian organizations. We'd like to present to MVPs that are active in their local community about the opportunity, and get feedback on what would encourage them to take on a project
Behind the Scenes: Global Windows Azure Bootcamp and Global Render Lab
"On April 27th, 2013, we held Windows Azure bootcamps on more than 90 locations in around 30 countries around the globe! This one day deep dive class helped over 6,000 people get up to speed developing with Windows Azure. We also ran a “Global Render Lab” with over 750 attendees in 22 countries helping to greater a massive animation render farm which consisted of up to 4,500 virtual servers and consumed almost 7 years of compute time.
In this session Windows Azure MVPs Alan Smith and Magnus Mårtensson will share our experiences of the planning and execution of the Global Windows Azure Bootcamp. Starting from a crazy idea dreamed up in a pub in Stockholm to two almost sleepless nights as the event kicked off in Sydney Australia and closed 25 hours later in San Francisco. The lessons we have learned could easily be applied to other development communities.
Plans are already being laid for Global Windows Azure Bootcamp 2014, if you want to be part of it we will have details of how to sign up. Let’s make next year’s event even bigger…"
