Azure, Windows and Xamarin: Using the Cloud to Power Your Cross-platform Applications

Xamarin University Guest Lecture, Online
09 Jul 2018

One of the most exciting recent additions to Microsoft Azure is called Functions and allows the developer to quickly build and deploy code to the cloud without complicated setup. Also dubbed “serverless computing”, Azure Functions can be triggered by timers, HTTP calls or database operations, and can communicate with other Azure services or mobile and desktop applications such as those made with Xamarin. In this lecture, Laurent Bugnion, Cloud Developer Advocate for Microsoft, will give you an i...

Azure, Windows and Xamarin: Using the cloud to power your cross-platform applications

Insider Dev Tour, Zurich, Switzerland
19 Jun 2018

Most mobile applications are connecting to a server at some point, either to get data that needs to be shown to the user, or to save data collected by the mobile device. This is where Microsoft Azure has the potential of making your life as a developer much easier. The cloud came a long way, and you can now build cloud infrastructure very easily and for a reasonable cost. New computing models like serverless functions or globally distributed databases are changing the game. What was earlier rese...

Porting MVVM Light to .NET Standard: Lessons learned

ITCamp, Cluj-Napoca, Romania
08 Jun 2018

1.NET Standard is the new way to create portable assemblies. After learning about portable class libraries in the past years, it is now time to upgrade our game and start coding for Linux, Mac OS and other platforms untouched by .NET until now. More and more libraries are getting ported to .NET Standard, sometimes really easily and sometimes more painfully. In this session, Laurent Bugnion, the creator of the popular open source MVVM Light Toolkit, will help you understand why .NET Standard can b...

Building truly Universal applications with Azure, Xamarin and MVVM

DotNet 2018, Madrid Spain
29 May 2018

1With Windows 10 supporting an unprecedented number of platforms and form factors (from IOT to phones to tablets to laptops and desktops to XBOX and SurfaceHub, and even the new HoloGraphic computer HoloLens), the name 'Windows 10 Universal application' is fairly accurate. But to be honest, shouldn't a truly Universal application run on Windows 7, iOS and Android devices too? Thankfully, this is possible thanks to a clever architecture pattern named Model-View-ViewModel, the .NET portable class l...

Azure 101

Experts Live Switzerland, Bern Switzerland
03 May 2018

'Es gibt keine Cloud, es ist lediglich der Computer von jemand anderem ...'. Korrekt. Aber wenn dieser Jemand Microsoft ist und alle benötigten Wartungsarbeiten an der mächtigen Serverfarm vornimmt, dann können Sie die bei Ihnen freiwerdenden Ressourcen anderweitig nutzen, beispielsweise um Ihren IT-Benutzern neue Funktionen zur Verfügung zu stellen. Allerdings kann das riesige Angebot von Microsoft Azure auf den ersten Blick abschreckend wirken. In dieser Präsentation zeigt Ihnen Laurent Bugnio...
