.NET Standard, .NET Core, why and how?

.NET Sao Paulo user group, Sao Paulo, Brazil
11 Dec 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 in addition to Windows. 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 benefi...

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

VS Live Orlando, Orlando FL
04 Dec 2018

1Most 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 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 reserved to la...

Azure 101

VS Live Orlando, Orlando FL
04 Dec 2018

1'There is no cloud, it's just someone else's computer...' That's true. But when this someone else is Microsoft, and takes care of all the maintenance of these huge server farms, you can redirect these resources used to take care of your own infrastructure to other important tasks, such as adding features for your users. However, at first sight, Azure and its huge offering can seem daunting for a new user. In this presentation, Laurent Bugnion, who until recently didn't know much about the cloud,...

Fast Focus: Serverless Computing - Azure Functions and Xamarin in 20 Minutes

VS Live Orlando, Orlando FL
04 Dec 2018

1One of the most exciting recent additions to Azure is called Functions and it allows the developer to quickly build and deploy code to the cloud without a 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 lightning talk, Laurent Bugnion, cloud developer advocate for Microsoft, will give you an...

Global Xamarin Bootcamp Keynote

Global Xamarin Bootcamp 2018, Singapore
10 Nov 2018

125 years ago is when Laurent wrote his first line of code. Hard to believe that time flies so fast when you have fun! 25 years ago, software development was very different… or was it? Development environments were maybe not that powerful, we were running on a lot less RAM and CPU, but we were already architecting systems, converting code in bytes, running machines and connecting them with networks. We had We maybe didn't have all these fancy SPAs and Clouds, but we had Internet and a web browse...

DotNET Day DR 2018

DotNET Day DR 2018, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
27 Oct 2018

Join us in Santo Domingo for an informal afternoon of discussions and demos around Microsoft Azure and cross platform programming with Xamarin. We will start with some news from the Microsoft world and show some demos from the Ignite conference. Then comes the really fun part: We are going unscripted, armed with our laptops and (hopefully stable) internet. You can guide us by asking questions, talking about your experiences, bringing feedback. We'll have tons of things to show you, but most impo...
