NDC 2010视频下载:看看其他微软平台程序员们都在做什么

2010-07-13 15:13 by 老赵, 114 visits

NDC(Norwegian Developers Conference,挪威开发者大会)是一年一度的挪威最大的微软平台开发者大会,内容丰富讲师阵容强大。NDC与PDC同为高端技术会议,但NDC与PDC的不同之处在于,PDC是微软官方会议,主要是面向微软资深产品的深入探讨。而NDC涉及的内容则广泛的多,包括了我所感兴趣的Java、Mono、IronRuby/Ruby on Rails、NoSQL方面的内容。这也就像我一直强调的那样,微软技术社区非常开放,微软平台上的太多程序员都能够非常热情地拥抱其他平台的技术。那些认为微软技术社区是井底之蛙的兄弟,殊不知你们的嘲笑反而体现了自身的狭隘

总而言之,NDC是我理想中的微软平台技术大会。

如今NDC 2010的视频已经全部公开,可以在线观看(使用Silverlight),也可以下载。为了便于大家浏览和下载,我写了一段小程序整理出了所有的视频简介以及下载链接,共计140条,请点击这里

Fubu MVC 18 Jun 10 4:20 PM

FubuMVC is an open source framework for web development using the ModelView Controller (MVC) pattern. FubuMVC is built in C# and depends on theSystem.Web.Routing subsystem of the base CLR, but has no dependency on the ASP.Net MVC framework. In this talk I will highlight the architectural design of FubuMVC, how it works and more importantly the reasoning behind it. I will not make this into a comparison match with ASP.NET MVC, but there are so many interesting patterns being used in the FubuMVC code base that in its self should make this a very interesting talk. The FubuMVC code base has been an example for many others even in different areas outside of web development.

State vs. Interaction Testing 18 Jun 10 3:19 PM

Mocking frameworks allow you to stub out behaviour in order to perform tests of individual peices of functionality in isolation. However, there are times when performing certain actions and assert a result is not sufficient. In this session we will drill deep into unit testing and explain the differences between state and interaction-based testing. We will examine the role of stubs versus mocks and how to correctly write unit tests that are not fragile or counter-productive.

Bridging code between Java & .NET 18 Jun 10 3:18 PM

Frustrated .NET developer forced to work with old, boring java? Or are you a java developer having to work with the incompatible and evil .NET technology? With IVKM.NET you can compile your java byte code to the .NET IL and run your favorite java code on .NET and maybe even your Java applications will run faster under IVKM.NET than under SUNs JVM? We take a look at IKVM.NET and how it can be used to bridge your java libraries to your .NET application and the other way around, reusing .NET APIs in your java code. We also show how to use IVKM.NET for creating java-stubs from already existing .NET libraries in order to access your .NET code in java.

Rough Cuts in Legacy Code 18 Jun 10 3:17 PM

Getting legacy code under test is hard, particularly when it is deeply intertwined. In some of the worst code bases, there are no real components, the code is just one large soup.In this session, Michael Feathers will describe a series of strategies and techniques that you can use to separate clusters of classes from your application, characterize them and write tests for them to enable deterministic change.

The SharePoint 2010 Business Intelligence Soup 18 Jun 10 4:17 PM

SharePoint 2010 has rich BI capabilities, much more enhanced than what SharePoint 2007 provided. Did you try using SharePoint 2007 as a BI delivery mechanism? How was the experience? Was it too difficult to setup? Did you feel you were limited on the lines of performance, capabilities, diagnosis ability? Did you think the featureset was great, and made for good demos �C but delivering real solutions was a whole another story? Well is SharePoint 2010 any better? Come over and let��s talk about it. In this session, Sahil will talk about the various BI specific improvements in SharePoint 2010, with specific emphasis on what is new compared to SharePoint 2007.

Get Your Business Out of My Face: Legacy Refactorings for Testable User Interface Code 18 Jun 10 1:58 PM

Traditional acceptance testing works at the front-end of a fully-integrated system. There is a need for this kind of testing, however the need accounts for a comparatively small amount of the overall checking you should do on your system. Unfortunately, effectively checking your system requires some basic design principles, which are typically not applied.This session will give you an idea of the kinds of design changes you?ll need to make to improve the testability of your system through a demonstration of legacy refactoring techniques targeted at getting business logic out of UI code.This session will be code-driven. I?ll begin with some example code, displayed for the audience. We will begin by writing automated tests to verify some of the business logic leaving the code as is.After writing a few tests, we will review the pros and cons of the testing approach.I will then provide a few basic design principles that apply to the particular situation: dependency inversion principle, single responsibility principle, not mixing enabling code with business logic.We will then make some ?obvious? legacy refactorings, done badly. Review the results. This first round will be an application of the Single Responsibility Principle. Then we will discuss the Dependency Inversion Principle and do the refactoring more effectively.We will continue with a comparison of the first tests with their final form and the first version of the business logic with the refactored version. We will review

No Source Code, No Problem - Reverse Code Engineering in Product Development 18 Jun 10 2:58 PM

Reverse Code Engineering (RCE) is commonly applied to solve security-related challenges. It is all about understanding the behavior of software without access to its source code. This often means studying low-level machine code generated from a higher level language like C or C++. Such translation is lossy and highly architecture and compiler dependent, which makes going in the reverse direction quite challenging.In this talk I'm going to discuss RCE from a product development perspective, where interoperability with platform-specific undocumented APIs could be a necessity. First some background including practical examples of key challenges solved by RCE from my own experience, followed by a live demonstration of some tools and techniques.

Collaboration in ABB - from drawing board to real-life solution using SharePoint 2010 18 Jun 10 2:57 PM

ABB is a global leader in power and automation technologies, operates in around 100 countries and employs about 117,000 people. ABB's global intranet is a complex and highly tailored solution containing several hundred thousand pages in more than fifty country sites. The intranet was named one of "The Ten Best Intranets of the Year" by Nielsen Norman Group in 2002, but the general concept of the intranet has not evolved substantially since then. For several years ABB worked on new concepts for making the intranet more valuable to users, by increasing findability, quality of content and opportunities for collaboration. Late last year, SharePoint 2010 was selected as the technical platform to achieve these goals. This talk will outline the collaboration concept that ABB envisioned, and what happened when the concept from the drawing board met the real-life platform SharePoint 2010. The talk will focus on the "social" aspects of the solution such as profiles, networking with colleagues, sharing of information through status updates, activity feeds, social tagging and commenting. It will describe, feature by feature, which parts of SharePoint were used as they are, and which were tailored to achieve a more interactive and collaborative intranet for ABB. The talk will focus both on functionality and on hands-on technical implementation.The speakers will share their experiences of what worked well and what not in terms of conceptual design, development of improved or new social fea

Product Development in TANDBERG 18 Jun 10 1:57 PM

TANDBERG has never cared much about documentation, procedures, methodologies and risk reduction. However, we do care very much about our culture and our principles. This has enabled us to outperform all competition in the video conferencing and telepresence market during the last decade.In retrospect, we realize that TANDBERG has for 10-15 years built a culture that is quite compatible with Agile and Lean ideas.This talk will give a glimpse into how we do product development in TANDBERG R&D at Lysaker. I will show an example of how we developed a particular product with emphasis on software development, before I dive into the principles that we follow.

Clean Code III: Functions 18 Jun 10 1:51 PM

Get ready for a challenge as Robert Martin dives deep into the topic of clean Java code by examining what makes a good function. In this talk you will look at a lot of code; some good and some bad. You will experience how such code is analyzed, critiqued, and eventually refactored. You will understand the decisions made by an expert in the field as bad code is gradually transformed into good code. How big should a function be? How should it be named? How should it be documented. How many indent levels should it have? How should it deal with exceptions, arguments, and return values. This talk is all about code at the lowest level. And yet the principles and techniques presented have far reaching implications.

Advanced Topics in Agile Planning 18 Jun 10 12:40 PM

Velocity is perhaps the most useful metric available to agile teams. In this session we will look at advanced uses of velocity for planning under special but common circumstances. We will see how to forecast velocity in the complete absence of any historical data. We will look at how a new team can forecast velocity by looking at other teams. We will see how to predict the velocity of a team that will grow or shrink in size. Most importantly we will look at the use of confidence intervals to create plans we can be 90% confident in, even on fixed-price or fixed-date contracts.

SharePoint 2010 - Is it Scalable or not? 18 Jun 10 12:38 PM

If there is any topic that has generated more debate, it is the scalability of SharePoint lists and document libraries. In this session, Sahil will talk about the new and improved details around the scalability, and performance aspects of SharePoint 2010. Topics covered will include List management infrastructure, content database schema improvements, and RBS capabilities, with practical gotchas and things to watch out for.

Aspect Oriented Programming: Learning by Re-Invention 18 Jun 10 1:38 PM

This talk aims to provide an in-depth understanding of the concept of Aspect Oriented Programming and how an AOP framework does what it does, by taking the audience through the implementation of (a simple) one from scratch.

Agile Release Strategy 18 Jun 10 12:37 PM

Releasing often is probably the most important practice in agile development. In many projects it can also be the hardest practice. This talk will give you hands on advice on how to reliably reduce your release cycle.

Testing C# and ASP.NET Applications with Ruby 18 Jun 10 1:37 PM

With the reach and diversity of different programming languages andparadigms at the moment, it's possible to use the appropriate languagefor the appropriate task. In my case, I develop applications using C# but test the code using Ruby. The Ruby community has always understood the importance of testing. They strive to make applications more testable while improving the approaches and tools they use. As aresult, they have created some amazing frameworks and a series of best practices to support testing. While this is great for Ruby developers, C# and ASP.net developers can take full advantage for their own applications. This session provides an insight into the Ruby world and how you can take advantage to create readable, maintainable and valuable tests for ASP.net based web applications, from the business logic up to the user interface. Taken from my own experiences of using this approach, the session will demonstrate how to integrate Ruby frameworks such as RSpec and Cucumber into your application development cycle, and how different frameworks combined with Ruby can solve a number of problems traditionally faced when using C#. There will also be discussionaround IronRuby and JRuby and their implications for the future andthe future of Testing ASP.net applications in general.

The Art of the Method 18 Jun 10 12:35 PM

Have you ever looked at a method or function in someone else's code and felt that you've seen it before? Methods don't come in infinite varieties. There are some very common structural and semantic patterns which recur in code. Some of them occur because teams have adopted good coding and design conventions. others occur because methods tend to fall apart and degrade in similar ways.In this session, Michael Feathers will name and describe various types of methods seen in the field and talk about how a nomenclature for these methods can simplify and focus design.

ASP.NET MVC vs Ruby on Rails - The .NET Rocks Smackdown 18 Jun 10 1:18 PM

Agile Estimating 18 Jun 10 10:38 AM

Using ReST to design a better OData 18 Jun 10 11:40 AM

Code Contracts 18 Jun 10 11:36 AM

Code Contracts are a new feature of .NET 4 and present themselves as a way of greatly simplifying our code by using the concepts of Design by contract. In this talk we will cover the basics of Code Contracts and see how they can be used in real-world applications, how they can be tested, and see if they are all they are cut out to be.

Clean Code I: Arguments 18 Jun 10 10:35 AM

Keeping code clean is a simple matter of professional ethics. In this talk Robert Martin shows how a Java module can start clean, grow to become messy, and then be refactored back to cleanliness. Be forewarned: his tutorial is about CODE. We will put code on the screen and we will read and critique it. And then, one tiny step at a time, we will clean it. In this tutorial you will participate in the step by step improvement of a module. You will see the techniques of the Prime Directive (Never Be Blocked), and Agile Design Principles brought into play. You will witness the decision making process that Agile Developers employ to write code that is expressive, flexible, and clean. Finally, you learn an attitude of professional ethics that defines the software developer’s craft.

The Deep Synergy Between Testability and Good Design 18 Jun 10 10:34 AM

Many people moan about it the fact that their code is hard to test. They hack their code to make it testable and then they moan some more about how unit testing is an irritant, it makes code ugly. The fact of the matter is, it isn't true. There's a deep synergy between testability and good design. All of the pain that we feel when writing unit tests points at underlying design problems. In this session, Michael Feathers will, through a series of examples, show how you can use testability challenges to reconsider and improve your design.

User Stories for Agile Requirements 18 Jun 10 9:20 AM

The technique of expressing requirements as user stories is one of the most broadly applicable techniques introduced by the agile processes. User stories are an effective approach on all time constrained projects and are a great way to begin introducing a bit of agility to your projects. In this session, we will look at how to identify and write good user stories. The class will describe the six attributes that good stories should exhibit and present thirteen guidelines for writing better stories. We will explore how user role modeling can help when gathering a project’s initial stories. Because requirements touch all job functions on a development project, this tutorial will be equally suited for analysts, customers, testers, programmers, managers, or anyone involved in a software development project. By the end of this tutorial, you will leave knowing the six attributes of a good story, learn a good format for writing most user stories, learn practical techniques for gathering user stories, know how much work to do up-front and how much to do just-in-time.

The Solid Principles of OO & Agile Design 18 Jun 10 9:19 AM

What happens to software? Why does is rot over time? How does an Agile development team prevent this rot, and prevent good designs from becoming legacy code? How can we be sure our designs are good in the first place? This class presents the agile S.O.L.I.D. principles for designing object oriented class structures. These principles govern the structure and interdependencies between classes in large object oriented systems. The principles include: The Open Closed Principle, The Liskov Substitution Principle, and the Dependency Inversion Principle, among others.

Being an effective team leader 18 Jun 10 9:18 AM

In this talk we'll review practices and principles that make good team leaders into great ones. from basic communication and influencing skills to essential day to day practices and things to look out for - this is a session every team lead should be interested in.

The Dependency Inversion Principle Applied 18 Jun 10 10:17 AM

This is a talk which aims to explain the Dependency Inversion Principle in practice. It is not a one hour theoretical explanation of what the principle states, but rather a real life demonstration of how it becomes a natural pattern to apply in the pursuit of a clean, maintainable design within the boundaries of a statically typed language. This is a “code and commentary” talk, with virtually no slides. Though the code demonstrated is C#, this is not a technology-specific talk.

Testable C# 18 Jun 10 9:16 AM

Unit testing is valuable, but it's hard to go very far with it without realizing that sometimes languages make it easy and sometimes they make it hard. In this code rich presentation, Michael Feathers will present a series of testability traps in the C# language: features and ways of using them which make unit testing impossible without specialized tooling. He will also present a simple rule along with supporting concepts that you can use to sidestep all of them and produce C# code which is always easily testable.

Developing Testable Web Parts for SharePoint 18 Jun 10 10:15 AM

The development of components for use in SharePoint is a complex process, and often seems to fly in the face of what is considered good development practice in a Test Driven Development world.In this session I will show how using some good design practices and tools such as Typemock Isolator you can develop testable components for SharePoint (2007 & 2010); often without even having to have SharePoint on your development PC.

Introducing Spark View Engine 18 Jun 10 10:08 AM

Getting Agile with Scrum 18 Jun 10 8:00 AM

Scrum is one of the leading agile software development processes. Over 12,000 project managers have become certified to run Scrum projects . Since its origin on Japanese new product development projects in the 1980s, Scrum has become recognized as one of the best project management frameworks for handling rapidly changing or evolving projects. Especially useful on projects with lots of technology or requirements uncertainty, Scrum is a proven, scalable agile process for managing software projects.Through lecture, discussion and exercises, this fast-paced tutorial covers the basics of what you need to know to get started with Scrum. You will learn about all key aspects of Scrum including product and sprint backlog, the sprint planning meeting, the sprint review, conducting a sprint retrospective, activities that occur during sprints, measuring and monitoring progress, and scaling Scrum to work with large and distributed teams. Also covered are the roles and responsibilities of the ScrumMaster, the product owner, and the Scrum team.This session will be equally suited for managers, programmers, testers, product managers and anyone else interested in improving product delivery.

Introduction to GIT 18 Jun 10 9:00 AM

An introduction to distributed version control using Git, and how your VCS should work with you and not against you. How DVCS can completely alter your development process, streamline it, and help you produce better software, faster. Covering how local repositories speed up your development, multiple authoritative sources, distributed teams, multiple workflows, and some of the more distinct features of Git. With experiences from an OSS team on how the migration from SVN to Git has helped the project and changed how the team works (Fluent NHibernate).

Riding IronRuby on Rails 18 Jun 10 9:00 AM

The most famous Ruby–driven framework is, by far, Ruby on Rails. With IronRuby, .NET developers can now take advantage of this incredible web framework without leaving their comfort zone. In this session, Shay Friedman will build an entire Web 2.0 site from scratch while using and explaining the key features of Ruby on Rails.
Come and see what Ruby on Rails is all about and what's made it the success it is today.

Developing for SharePoint 2010 18 Jun 10 8:57 AM

Sure you're a .NET developer. Maybe you are even a SharePoint developer. But have you seen development for SharePoint 2010? It comes with full tooling support in VS2010, and massive improvements in the platform itself. Developing for SharePoint is finally manageable, but is it easy to be a SharePoint developer? Come and find out!

The Three Laws of TDD 18 Jun 10 9:00 AM

The jury is in, the case is closed. TDD works, and works well. In this talk Uncle Bob makes the point that TDD is not a testing technique at all. Rather, TDD is a way to ensure good architecture, good design, good documentation, and that the software works as the programmer intended. TDD is a necessary discipline for those developers seeking to become professionals. This talk is half lecture and half demonstration. Examples are in Java and Junit.

The Next Big Thing Or Cool-Kid Koolaid? Slicing Through The Rhetoric of MVC vs. WebForms 18 Jun 10 9:00 AM

In this presentation Rob Conery dissects the arguments that are polluting the blogosphere, surrounding the discussion of whether ASP.NET MVC is "right" for you and your team. Passion, misinformation, assumptions and fear have pushed people into entrenched positions, leaving little room for intelligent thought. The goal of this presentation is to "shake loose" the rhetoric and give you some concrete ideas to think about if you're considering a move to ASP.NET MVC. In addition, Rob will try to offer an answer to the question: "Is WebForms Dead?"

C# Quo Vadis? 17 Jun 10 4:40 PM

What’s next for C#? This session will not answer that question! Mads will open with about 10 minutes about the challenges and constraints of language design, followed by an open discussion on where to take C# involving fellow C# designers Eric Lippert and Neal Gafter, C# author and luminary Jon Skeet as well as you in a lively free-form discussion that can take us anywhere and will be absolutely once-in-a-lifetime.

ASP.NET performance for free using caching 17 Jun 10 5:39 PM

Is your ASP.NET application not performing like you wished it would? Performance not what it has to be? Have you considered caching? While many developers know the basics of caching in ASP.NET, there's actually a lot more possible than initially thought. Also, not every technique is good to solve every problem. In this session, we'll do an overview of all the options ASP.NET has to offer for caching and state management, helping you to get a better performing application.

jQuery: Write less, do more 17 Jun 10 4:40 PM

jQuery is a JavaScript library which allows you to develop solutions with less code, in less time. You can build interactive prototypes for your prospective clients, or take an existing solution and add new dynamic behaviour with little effort.We will see how jQuery can be used to quickly and concisely apply JavaScript behaviour to your web app. It will cover selectors, Ajax, DOM manipulation and more. The aim: to produce lean unobtrusive JavaScript with jQuery

Beautiful Teams & Leaders 17 Jun 10 4:38 PM

A look at what makes teams productive, and what makes team leaders effective. from team practices such as automation and communication, to team leads that grow and coach their people, confront problems and finds ways to make people better. this is an overview session. specific issues are elaborated in other sessions.

5 reasons why projects using DDD fail 17 Jun 10 4:40 PM

Many people try applying Domain Driven Design and #fail miserably.This presentation looks at five top reasons for failure and discusses how to avoid them.

Introducing the .NET Service Bus 17 Jun 10 5:37 PM

The .NET services bus is part of the new Microsoft Cloud Computing Windows Azure initiative, and arguably, it is the most accessible, ready to use, powerful, and needed piece. The service bus allows clients to connects to services across any machine, network, firewall, NAT, routers, load balancers, virtualization, IP and DNS as if they were part of the same local network, and doing all that without compromising on the programming model or security. The service bus also supports callbacks, event publishing, authentication and authorization and doing all that in a WCF-friendly manner. This session will present the service bus programming model, how to configure and administer service bus solutions, working with the dedicated relay bindings including the available communication modes, relying on authentication in the cloud for local services and the various authentication options, and how to provide for end-to-end security through the relay service. You will also see some advanced WCF programming techniques, original helper classes, productivity-enhancing utilities and tools, as well as discussion of design best practices and pitfalls.

Architecting for the .NET Event Model 17 Jun 10 5:25 PM

You may have a basic understanding of .NET's event model, but how can you best architect your applications to take advantage of .NET events? This session spends a few minutes on the basics, then provides real-world examples showing how you can design your applications to take advantage of the .NET event model for things such as:* Custom data binding in Windows Forms and Web Forms* Establishing relationships between business components* Creating world-class, end-user-configurable security* Localizing the user interface dynamically at run time

The Purpose of Leadership and Governance 17 Jun 10 4:21 PM

There are three types of organizations: ordered, chaotic, and complex organizations. The best management approach depends on the type of organization, and the amount of rule–making a development manager⁄team leader should concern himself with. However, this distinction is a false (but useful) metaphor. In reality, development teams are complex _adaptive_ systems, meaning that they should be doing their own rule–making, as self–organizing systems.
However, self–organization alone is not enough. Management is needed for imposing boundaries and constraints. There's a great checklist available to managers and team leaders for defining boundaries to authority in self–organizing teams.
There are two kinds of purpose: archeo–purpose and neo–purpose. Both the team itself and the manager can assign a neo–purpose to a team. This neo–purpose is not the same as the goal of the project they are working on, or the goals of any of the stakeholders. One thing a manager⁄leader can do is to assign purpose to a self–organizing team. We will discuss how to do that.

Building Applications with Silverlight 4 17 Jun 10 3:20 PM

Now that Silverlight 4 is released, find out what is new⁄changed and how to write great data-driven applications with Silverlight 4. Learn about how you can leverage Silverlight 4 for rich desktop applications using the new ‘trusted application’ model and how to best take advantage of these features. Accessing data using RIA Services makes data-driven applications easier and can support a ViewModel development pattern approach. This session will be faced pace in overview, but deep in code. Few slides, mostly code.

From one web server to two: Making the leap to web farms 17 Jun 10 4:20 PM

Code Excavations, Wishful Invocations, and Domain Specific Unit Test Frameworks 17 Jun 10 3:20 PM

In this talk I'll describe a technique for unit-testing code embedded in an impenetrable framework (such as Sharepoint, Silverlight, and BizTalk) that make such code inaccessible. We know we should write code that is easy to test because it has clean boundaries, but sometimes the vendors we work with make that kind of modularity just too hard. I will talk about how we can test such plug-in code by faking its environment in memory, simulating the underlying engines. As an example, I'll be showing SilverUnit, a framework to test code written for the Silverlight framework without driving through the browser. I'll talk about how the need for this sort of testing arose during silverlight development and how it allowed me to make sure my silverlight code worked as expected. even the UI logic.

If I Ruled the World - C# 5.0 According to Jon 17 Jun 10 3:20 PM

Now that C# 4 is out, thoughts are naturally turning towards what C# 5 might hold. Speaking from a position of breathtaking ignorance of what the team is actually planning, and without the safety net of a working implementation, I will outline a few ideas about what could be in C# 5. Some will be wacky, some mundane and perhaps even obvious. One thing's almost certain: this won't be the feature set of the real C# 5. Even so, it will provide some food for thought.

Domain Driven Entity Framework 17 Jun 10 3:20 PM

If you think of your database as an "implementation detail", it is likely that you are not interested in building your all important domain classes based on a database or being bound by the limitations of a modeling tool. In the U.S., Telemark skiers cry "Free the Heel". In this session we'll make that a call to "Free the Domain Classes". We'll take a look at the different mechanisms that do not involve reverse engineering a database. In VS2010, EF's Model-First support and in the Entity Framework Feature CTP, the completely model-less Code Only support. We'll finish with a quick look at SQL Server Modeling's M language, which provides yet another option for defining entity classes without the EDM designer .

Top Security Scenarios for WCF Services: On Premise & In The Cloud 17 Jun 10 4:20 PM

Today you will be hard-pressed to find an enterprise application that does not rely on distributed messaging and service-orientation. Client applications such as rich clients, Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) built with Silverlight or some flavor or AJAX, and those targeting mobile devices all access resources via services exposed to the intranet or Internet. Oftentimes the middle tier also includes layers of services living in the DMZ or behind it. There are many possible security models available for scenarios involving the various client technologies and service tiers - and Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) supplies the tools necessary to implement each and every possibility. In this session, you will learn the most common and practical security scenarios that involve WCF services within the intranet or exposed to the Intranet including classic Windows security, username and password, certificates, federated identity, REST-based and securing calls between tiers. The session will also discuss scenarios that can benefit from aspects of Windows Azure platform including AppFabric Service Bus and Access Control - such as for securing services behind the DMZ and enabling federation for REST-based services. All examples will cover requirements for the client and service, give you a formula to achieve each scenario, and show you custom components that simplify implementation. You’ll leave this session with a recipe for the most common security scenarios including sample code

MonoTouch Deep Dive 17 Jun 10 2:00 PM

A deep dive into developing applications with MonoTouch. Learn about the different UI components available on the iPhone and iPad and how to use these with MonoTouch as well as how you can create interoperability with your .Net libraries within MonoTouch.

What I've learned About DDD Since the Book 17 Jun 10 2:00 PM

In the 5 years since the book was published, I've practiced DDD on various client projects, and I've continued to learn about what works, what doesn't work, and how to conceptualize and describe it all. Also, I've gained perspective and learned a great deal from the increasing number of expert practitioners of DDD who have emerged.The fundamentals have held up well, as well as most patterns, but there are differences in how I do things and look at things now. I will try to describe them, very informally, in this talk.Over this time, I have folded in a couple of additional patterns, and essentially come to ignore a few, but the biggest change has been a subtle shift of emphasis. Ubiquitous Language and Context Mapping and Core Domain are at the center, with aggregates in close orbit. Why, I ask myself, did I put context mapping in Chapter 14? Core domain in Chapter 15?! Before the book, it seemed self-evident to me that SOA fit well with DDD, but five years of questions on that topic have made it clear that my early explanations were inadequate and helped me clarify how it fits. Increased emphasis on events and distributed processing have crystallized the significance of aggregates and refined the building blocks.The talk cannot go into depth on all these topics, but the goal will be to give a quick look at where my view of DDD has been heading.

Advanced Tips & Tricks for ASP.NET MVC 2 17 Jun 10 1:57 PM

In this session we’ll not only look at improving the maintainability and performance of an MVC application, but also how to increase your productivity. Topics include model binding, meta-data providers, and T4 Templates.

C# in the Big World 17 Jun 10 1:57 PM

C# 4.0 focuses on being a good citizen in a big world. In this talk we look at named and optional arguments, as well as the much improved COM interaction. We pay special attention to the new dynamic feature and the Dynamic Language Runtime (DLR) that it builds on: How do they work, how can you use them and why did we design them this way. We’ll also interoperate with COM and the HTML DOM, and build our own dynamic objects.

Tasks & Threading in .NET 4.0 17 Jun 10 3:00 PM

Writing multi-threaded applications is hard - making them work is even harder. Scaling applications to the current and future multiple-core machines can really be a daunting task --- but it doesn't have to be! In this session, Ingo Rammer shows you the new task-based API and how it simplifies the creation of multi-core supporting applications. You will learn how you can take advantage of the fine-grained parallelism and control which is offered by this new .NET feature. Ingo will also show you how to extend your in-memory LINQ query to run in parallel, and how the new Visual Studio 10 debugging tools will make troubleshooting this kind of applications a lot easier.

Making Manual Testing a Part of Your Development Process 17 Jun 10 3:00 PM

Software has always needed to be tested manually, automation can help, but it is never going to replace the need for manual testing totally. How a team manages this requirement for manual testing can be key to a projects success or failure.In the 2010 release of Visual Studio, Microsoft have provided a whole new set of tools to aid in this process - Microsoft Test Manager. In this session I will show how MTM can be used to assist a tester in creating detailed, accurate and repeatable testing that are a joy to use (well might be stretching a point there!). Also I will show how the tooling can allow these manual tests can become the basis for automated tests and Coded UI tests, and how the advanced logging features of the tools allow bugs to be accurately passed back to developers for speed the production of fixes.

Windows Identity Foundation and Windows Azure 17 Jun 10 3:00 PM

Claims-based identity provides an open and interoperable approach to identity and access control that can be consistently applied both on-premises and in the cloud. Come to this session to learn about how Windows Identity Foundation can be used to secure your Web Roles hosted in Windows Azure, how you can take advantage of existing on-premises identities and how to make the best of features in our cloud offering, such as certificate management and staged environments.

Software Is Not Manufacturing 17 Jun 10 12:45 PM

While we assert that software development is not manufacturing, we often slip into manufacturing metaphors and analogies and then fail to extricate our explorations of how software development unfolds from manufacturing. Some of these analogies are so deeply-rooted into our customs that we readily contradict our own assertions. This presentation looks at just how handicapped your software development becomes at the hand of these engrained manufacturing perspectives. It looks at product development theory as a better analogy to software development and a more practicable body of knowledge for software development. And it looks at how even product development theory fails to illuminate software development when we backslide into manufacturing-specific product development. Lean and Agile methods are framed in terms of product development and software development productivity problems are laid open under the surgical precision of product development analogies to building software machines.

Introduction to MonoTouch 17 Jun 10 12:39 PM

An overview of what's possible using Monotouch, Novell's tool to enable C# and .Net based applications for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Find out what you need to start using Monotouch and how to create a sample application. If you have any questions on why you'd use this, what are the benefits and downsides of using Monotouch then this is your place!

Technology Supported Requirement Handling and Estimation 17 Jun 10 1:40 PM

Lindorff Group is a leading outsourced receivables management company in Europe, and one of the leading on a global basis. For the past three-four years, they have increasingly adopted agile practices, especially in a large scale project converting and improving an old system written in Powerhouse to new .Net-technology.The results from adopting agile practices have been mostly positive, however, there were challenging issues related to requirement handling and estimation that needed attention. In 2008, Lindorff joined a project with Symphonical funded by Innovation Norway. The purpose of the project was to develop software for requirements handling, estimation and knowledge management for the Symphonical platform. Symphonical is a flexible web-based collaboration platform, where users can brainstorm, plan, organize and coordinate any process.This talk presents results from a case study detailing the challenges faced by Lindorff as they simultaneously adopted agile practices and introduced a new system for requirement handling and estimation. According to the respondents of the case study, Lindorff appears to have improved on two of the main points of concern presented in the 2007 study: requirement handling and estimation. Many users report that the introduction of agile methods and the platform Symphonical has improved the quality of important work processes. Furthermore, they report that the introduction of Symphonical has provided a framework for structured discussions re

Rocking AppFabric Access Control: Practical Scenarios, Killer Code and Wicked Tools 17 Jun 10 12:38 PM

AppFabric Access Control is a feature of the Windows Azure platform that makes it easy to secure web resources such as REST-based services using a simple set of standard protocols. In fact, AppFabric Access Control uniquely facilitates several scenarios not previously possible including a standards-based mechanism for securing web resources, identity federation for REST, and secure calls from Silverlight and AJAX clients to web resources including REST-based WCF services or REST-based MVC implementations. In this session you will get a tour of the AppFabric Access Control feature set and learn how to implement these key security scenarios with the help of some custom tools that encapsulate common functionality exposing a simple object model for working with the protocols underlying Access Control. In addition, you will learn how to integrate typical Windows Identity Foundation (WIF) authorization techniques such as ClaimsPrincipal to decouple the authentication and authorization mechanism from the business logic.

Unleash Your Domain 17 Jun 10 12:40 PM

Our application runs over 10,000 sustained transactions per second with a rich model. The key? Modeling state transitions explicitly.In today's world many systems have non-functional requirements that prevent them from being single database centric. This presentation looks at how Domain Driven Design can fit into such environments including extremely large scale web sites, batch processing, and even using highly scalable backing stores such as CouchDb or HyperTable.Event streams, a different way of storing the current state of an object, open many doors in this session not only in how we scale and store our domain but also in how we rationalize about it.

Testers Are Not Your Enemy 17 Jun 10 1:40 PM

Manual testing has been marginalized in agile development. Usdevelopers seems to think that manual testing is outdated and shouldnow be replaced by automatic test scripts. I think that manual testingshould still be a part of the development process, and in this talk,you will learn why that is and how we can integrate manual testers onagile teams.

Improving Your ASP.NET Application Performance with Asynchcronous Pages and Parallel Extensions 17 Jun 10 1:40 PM

Asynchronous pages and handlers can be used in ASP.NET to improve the performance of the application, especially the throughput, but wrongly used can lead to unexpected behavior, including a degraded performance. One of the key technologies that are part of the Visual Studio 2010 is Parallel Extensions. So come to this interactive session to see how you can benefit from those new technologies and how they can help you to mitigate some of the problems.

Fluent Nhibernate 17 Jun 10 11:40 AM

(misses 4 minutes in the start)An introduction and overview to object⁄relational mapping using Fluent NHibernate. See how Fluent NHibernate can help you map your domain with the least amount of effort, how you can remain flexible with your database, and how to drive your design through convention–over–configuration; all without writing a single line of XML.
The talk is an introduction to Fluent NHibernate for those that aren't familiar with it, and assumes some NHibernate experience and is for .Net developers primarily. The goal is to show people how low–impact NHibernate can be with Fluent NHibernate, and how it can actually speed up development in rapid–change environments.
I'll cover an overview of what Fluent NHibernate is, the various parts of it (the fluent interface, the conventions, and the auto–mappings, and the configuration aspect), then expand on how these features can be utilised to improve your NHibernate experience and simplify your development process.

Folding Design to Agile 17 Jun 10 10:40 AM

After a decade of heavy process, the Agile revolution of the late '90s threw off the dead hand of big upfront design. The bloody purge that followed was needed!There were unintended consequences. Too many teams interpret "Agile" as a permit to not think about design. But if they have ambitious goals, Agile teams need more than standup meetings and iterations. Many teams get off to a quick start, building lots of features in early iterations, but end up with a "Big Ball of Mud". Without clear and well-structured code, they cannot sustain their pace and also put themselves at risk of, one day, encountering a critical feature they simply cannot deliver. Without the common understanding between developers and stakeholders that is forged in domain analysis, one of the greatest benefits of iteration, the deepening communication about what the software should do and how it should do it, is never realized.We must not return to the "Analysis Paralysis" that we used to endure (and that many teams still do), but interpreting "Do the Simplest Thing" as "Do the Easiest Thing" doesn't work either.This talk will consider ways of incorporating modeling and design into the iterative process in a lightweight way that increases communication with stakeholders and decreases the likelihood of painting ourselves into corners, without returning to the dead-hand of the analysis phase. As a concrete example of how such techniques can be incorporated into the Agile framework, we'll have an overview of

Silverlight data access and services not for the faint of heart 17 Jun 10 10:40 AM

For data needs, Silverlight can talk to services like WCF or REST enabled services. These service types are sufficient for most scenarios. But what if it isn't? Most examples that can be found out there cover the basics, but in the real world, that's sometimes not enough. In this session, we'll explore the dark corners of Silverlight’s service access. Among others, we’ll cover duplex communication, debugging services, the HttpWebRequest, TCP communication and securing service communication from Silverlight.

Zen of Architecture 17 Jun 10 10:37 AM

Wonder about architecture best practices, guidelines and pitfalls? Wonder how to design world–class systems? You understand the concepts but not how to apply them? In the first half of this high pace session, Juval will explain his original approach to large system analysis design. Then, he will discuss logical tiers, security, interoperability, scalability, transactions, and other aspects of a modern application. You will see how to approach rarely discussed topics such as allocation of services to assemblies, allocation of services to processes, transaction boundaries, identity management, authorization and authentication boundaries and more.

Modularization, Testing & Technical Debt in a Large Agile Project 17 Jun 10 10:40 AM

This experience reports focuses on the major scrum–related technical challenges that arose during a 120 000 hour scrum controlled project. For each of them, we try to identify the cause and the consequence, and then follow up with any solutions we tried. Finally we sum up and assess whether the problem was successfully solved or not.

Hardcore .NET Production Debugging 17 Jun 10 11:40 AM

But ... it used to work yesterday! In this newest version of his classic session, Ingo Rammer will introduce the hardcore and low-level tools used for production debugging of .NET applications. You'll learn how to attack the nastiest bugs in your applications, how to look at what's causing that grinding halt of your ASP.NET application and how to find the cause of that horrible memory leak in your Windows Forms application. Knowledge of these production debugging tools like WinDbg and SOS is not only important for cases when you really don't have access to Visual Studio and your source code, but these tools also reveal a lot more information than just the regular managed code debuggers.

Solid C++ code by example 17 Jun 10 11:36 AM

Sometimes you see code that is perfectly OK according to the definition of the language, but which is flawed because it breaks too many established idioms and conventions. On the other hand, a solid piece of code is something that looks like it is written by an experienced person who cares about professionalism in programming.
This will be an interactive discussion about good vs bad C++ code. We will discuss simple C++ idioms and coding conventions, but we will also touch upon best practices when working with C++ in large codebases with lots of developers with mixed skills.

Silverlight Applications for Windows Phone 7 17 Jun 10 9:20 AM

Windows Phone 7 is brand new, totally fresh operating system that will appear in phones before Christmas. The new platform is a complete rewrite and offers lots of interesting opportunities to third party developers. The development platform for Windows Phone 7 is all based around managed code and the tools and frameworks you already know and love. This presentation you will give you an overview of the Windows Phone 7 development platform, and how you can leverage your existing Silverlight skills to build great applications for the Windows Phone 7 marketplace. The session assumes some prior knowledge of Silverlight, as the focus of this presentation will be features that are specific to the phone. It will not only cover the basics of the Windows Phone 7 platform, but also how you can re-use many of the same patterns, frameworks, techniques and practices that you use when building regular Silverlight applications.

Entity Framework Persistance Ignorance 17 Jun 10 9:20 AM

Entity Framework in .NET 4 has finally embraced agile development. Thanks to it's new POCO support, you can now build completely persistent ignorant entity classes. In this session, we'll look at building an intelligent repository from entity classes and mocking up some extra classes in order to build unit tests against methods that have some dependency on the Entity Framework without touching the EF APIs. A prior understanding of the PI and Unit Testing should keep your head from spinning too much.

Service Oriented Development Process 17 Jun 10 9:20 AM

When you develop a service-oriented application, it would be naive of you to expect that the only things you will do differently will be limited to design and technology. The development process itself needs to be service-oriented. You cannot "stare into the fire" of WCF without a mature service-oriented development process supporting your effort. This talk presents you with a service-oriented development process that you can apply to your WCF-based products to achieve robust applications, manage requirements and ensure faster time to market.

IronRuby - A Brave New World for .NET 17 Jun 10 10:18 AM

.NET developers are about to enter a brave new world. With Microsoft'sDynamic Language Runtime (DLR) developers can start taking advantageof dynamic languages, such as IronRuby and IronPython, on top of the.Net platform and integrating the language into their existing .netbased applications. However, why is this important?In this session, Ben will provide an insight into the deep darksecrets of why he loves the Ruby language and how it can result in amore effective solution when compared to C#. After demonstrating thepowerful capabilities, Ben will explain how the DLR with IronRubyallows you to take full advantage of Ruby from C# applications,resulting in you choosing the appropriate language (C# or Ruby) forthe appropriate feature. The combination results in a powerfultool-set and opens some amazing possibilities for both C# and Rubydevelopers. With C# 4.0, these capabilities are taken a step further.But the advantage is not just one way, there are also advantages forRuby developers by allowing them to develop against the .Netframework.

jQuery for ASP.NET developers 17 Jun 10 9:20 AM

This session is a practical tour of the “write less, do more” JavaScript library - jQuery. In this session we will build an application using ASP.NET and jQuery while learning about CSS selectors, DOM manipulation, and asynchronous communications using the jQuery library. We’ll also look at the jQuery plug-in model, examine common jQuery programming paradigms, and see how to invoke WCF web services using jQuery.

Advanced Debugging with Visual Studio 17 Jun 10 10:17 AM

Basically every .NET developer knows the Visual Studio debugger, but only few know its little secrets. In this session, Ingo shows you what you can achieve with this tool beyond the setting of simple breakpoints. You will learn how advanced breakpoints, debugger macros and visualizers, interactive breakpoints, tracepoints and interactive object instantiation at development time can support your hunt for bugs in your applications. Ingo will also show you the new crash-dump debugging features of Visual Studio 2010 which allow you to get closer to your problem even if you don't have access to Visual Studio on the machine which exhibits the unexpected behavior.

Unit Testing Best Practices & Test Reviews 17 Jun 10 10:20 AM

In this session we look at existing .NET code form open source projects and discuss anti patterns worst practices when doing unit testing in the wild. From abuse of mock objects, unmaintainable tests and unreadable tests to checking interactions vs. state - this talk will take you deep into the real ugly world of unit testing.

Ruby for .NET developers 17 Jun 10 9:00 AM

After having spent many years coding in C#, and after having spent equally as much time in the C# language culture, Ruby seemed like a lot of bad ideas and heresy. In fact, much of Ruby is heretical to a C# or VB.NET mono-culture, but the productivity gains demonstrated by Ruby on Rails teams remains an unavoidable elephant in the room. This presentation looks at C# code examples side by side with some equivalent Ruby code and shines a little light on what it means to have either "ceremony" and "essence". It challenges the claims of static typing's effect on tooling to deliver "developer productivity". And finally, some examples of Ruby meta programming are given to demonstrate direct solutions to programming problems that would require much ado with restrictions in C# that don't end up doing much more than reducing the efficiency of software development efforts.

Silverlight for Windows Phone 17 Jun 10 9:00 AM

Windows Phone 7 Series is coming…and if you are a Silverlight developer there is good news: Silverlight *is* the development platform for Windows Phone applications. This session will provide an overview of the tools, the emulator, and the core APIs for Silverlight for Windows Phone development. Find out what is (and is not) possible in creating and porting your Silverlight applications ready for Windows Phone 7.

Putting Some Testing Into Your TFS Build 17 Jun 10 9:00 AM

Continuous Integration and scheduled builds are an important part of any development process. To get the best out of these tools, as much testing as possible should be wired into the post build process. With the 2010 release of Visual Studio we get the Lab Manager product that allows us to deploy our automated build to a virtualised test environment for either manual and⁄or automated testing. In this session I will show by doing an end to end demo, showing how an application can be build, deployed and tested with the Lab Manager environment.

Big-Ass View on Competency 17 Jun 10 9:00 AM

Agile team members create their own rules, based on constraints imposed by the environment. But something else is needed for good results: some call it discipline, craftsmanship, or competence. Traffic management teaches us that there are 7 approaches to achieving competence in a self-organizing system. We are going to look at all of them.

Strategic Design 17 Jun 10 9:00 AM

As software development leaders, we need to think more strategically. Some design decisions affect the trajectory of the whole project or even the organization. These decisions arise in early chartering and throughout development, and they are about much more than architecture. This talk will examine these issues through the lens of the Strategic Design principles of domain-driven design, which systematize a few critical practices some successful teams do intuitively.It is common for skilled teams to deliver software they are not proud of, due to compromises with legacy designs. Others toil for years, producing a platform that is never used to good advantage. These are strategic failures. On the other hand, there are projects with a direct explanation of how the software contributes to business goals. There are projects where designers work with a realistic view of the context of their development within the larger system, allowing them to maintain design clarity and integrity. These are strategic successes. Winning strategy starts with the domain.Two domain-driven design principles, "Context Mapping" and "Distilling the Core Domain", help you see your strategic situation more clearly and approach strategic design decisions more systematically. These techniques require extensive interaction with domain experts as well as the leaders of the organization, in discussions broader than functional requirements. They sometimes lead to priorities quite different from our most comfort

Co- and contra-variance in C# 17 Jun 10 7:57 AM

What's the difference between a bunch of bananas and a fruit bowl? Why can't I order a collection of circles by area? Why is the Hokey Cokey invariant? These questions (and some rather more sensible ones) will be answered in this session on variance. C# has supported variance to different degrees over different versions; C# 4 introduces covariance and contravariance to generic delegates and interfaces. Many developers may well use these features without even being aware of them - but as ever, it's useful to know what's going on for the times where things go wrong. Pre-requisites: a strong cup of coffee for when we discuss higher order functions, and a reasonable grasp of generics. Understanding Func, Action, IEnumerable and IComparer would be a good start.

Windows Identity Foundation Overview 17 Jun 10 8:51 AM

Hear how Windows Identity Foundation makes advanced identity capabilities and open standards first class citizens in the Microsoft .NET Framework. Learn how the Claims Based access model integrates seamlessly with the traditional .NET identity object model while also giving developers complete control over every aspect of authentication, authorization, and identity-driven application behavior. See examples of the point and click tooling with tight Microsoft Visual Studio integration, advanced STS capabilities, and much more that Windows Identity Foundation consistently provides across on-premise, service-based, ASP.NET and Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) applications.

Browsers with Wings: HTML5 APIs for webapp developers 16 Jun 10 4:40 PM

HTML5 is all the rage with the cool kids, and although there's a lot of focus on the new language, there's plenty for web app developers with new JavaScript APIs both in the HTML5 spec and separated out as their own W3C specifications. This session will take you through demos and code and show off some of the outright crazy bleeding edge demos that are being produced today using the new JavaScript APIs. But it's not all pie in the sky - plenty is useful today, some even in Internet Explorer!Specifically we'll be looking at scripting the video media element, 2D canvas and some of the mashups we can achieve. How to take our web apps completely offline, going beyond the cookie and HTML5's answer to threading: web workers.

Test-Driven JavaScript 16 Jun 10 4:40 PM

Javascript becomes much more important to interactive website development then before (ok it has been for a while already) but the notion of testing that logic seems even further fetched then testing the code written in C#, Java. And this is something that is wrong as well. How do you test drive your javascript development, what do you need to think about to make it testable? How can you deal with timers, async calls and the dom. Demonstrate all these things including how easy it is to make your own fakes for testing. Demonstrate the refactoring and changing behaviour becomes so much easier.And not to forget that the design of the code is much better as well. Basically that you gain all the benefits that TDD gives you in other languages also when doing TDD for javascript development.Building a feature without ever loading up a web-page to physically look at it and when you finally do it does exactly what you intended it to do, that is magic :-)

Windows Azure AppFabric 16 Jun 10 4:40 PM

As one of the key platform providers for enterprise solutions today, Microsoft realizes that there are very many assets in corporate datacenters that are not easily moved to the cloud. A lot of data is subject to government or corporate regulation about data protection that does not allow for the data to be hosted off-site and over the past decade, companies have made enormous investments in streamlining and integrating their applications in ways that make it not particularly attractive to break out parts of that integration chain and move them off into the cloud as insular solutions. The Windows Azure AppFabric’s Service Bus and Access Control services which Clemens will introduce in this session are about bridging these gaps and to provide application-to-application connectivity and access control federation across network and trust scopes.

The Parallel Task Library in .NET 4.0 16 Jun 10 5:b40PM

Introduced with .Net 4.0, the Parallel Task Library gives a new approach to task-parallel programming. In this session we dive into the details of the library, looking at the various ways that it can be utilised. We will cover a number of areas, including:• Data Parallelism, using Parallel.For and Parallel.ForEach• Task Parallelism, using Parallel.Invoke and the Task class• Exception Handling• Cancellation• Asynchronous continuation patterns• PLinq The session is aimed at the intermediate developer - a good understanding of basic threading principles is a requirement.

The Whole Team Approach to Testing 16 Jun 10 5:40 PM

Many test teams find themselves “squeezed to the end”, with code delivered too late to complete all the testing before the release deadline. They can’t get traction on critical activities such as test automation, and find themselves falling further and further behind. The software development organization is weighed down by increasing technical debt. Customers aren’t getting the software they wanted. Serious bugs get out to production, slowing the team down more as fixing one bug might cause two more. It can seem impossible to break out of this downward spiral.One way to turn this trend around is to get the whole team involved in building quality into the application, and solving testing problems together. In this session, Lisa Crispin will explain how to make quality a team responsibility, and testing a team’s problem to solve. She’ll explain how the “whole team” approach, leveraging multiple skill sets and planning in time for testing activities, leads to more testable code, better testing solutions. Participants will leave with some practical ideas to try right away.

Real-World Design with the Visual Studio 2010 Modelling Tools 16 Jun 10 3:21 PM

Visual Studio 2010 introduces new Layer, Class, Activity, Use Case, Sequence, and Component diagrams. This session provides an overview of each of these diagrams and demonstrates practical examples of when they are useful, and when they are not! You will see how VS 2010 allows you to reverse-engineer your existing .NET code and generate sequence diagrams that graphically depict the object interaction in your applications. You’ll also get a tour of the new Architecture Explorer, and learn how you can best fit these design tools into your software development processes - including agile software processes.

Building a Real-World, E-Commerce, Data-Driven Web Site 16 Jun 10 3:20 PM

In this session, I'll take you on a tour of what it took to go from an empty space in my ISPs web farm and turn it into a functional ecommerce web site. We'll include a discussion of how the domain was attached, how the site was built in ASP.NET, where the graphics and layout came from, how the products and site settings were managed in SQL Server, how the site was published, how shipping, taxes and handling are calculated, how money is collected and how the site is maintained. If you've ever wanted to see what it takes to start from scratch and build a real-world ecommerce web site, this is the place for you.

Distributed Computing 2.0 16 Jun 10 4:19 PM

Windows Azure Platform Compute & Storage 16 Jun 10 3:20 PM

At the heart of Windows Azure are its compute and management capabilities, which are foundational not only for ISV and enterprise solutions, but also for the Windows Azure platform components themselves. In this session Clemens will introduce Windows Azure’s notion of service and configuration models, the deployment and upgrade mechanisms, and introduce the diagnostics and management capabilities. You will furthermore learn about the various storage capabilities including the relational SQL Azure database service. Clemens will also show how Windows Azure’s different roles provide an architectural guidance framework for building scalable apps.

Noda time: An Alternative Date & Time Framework 16 Jun 10 3:20 PM

The date and time API within the .NET framework has certainly improved over time, but it's still not as rich as it might be. Noda Time is an open source project porting the popular "Joda Time" framework from Java to .NET, and improving it along the way. I'll explain why DateTime and DateTimeOffset aren't always enough, the main concepts in Noda Time, and some lessons we've learned about .NET, porting in general, and running an open source project.

Does Self-Organization Actually Work & Are Agile Teams Actually Motivated By It? 16 Jun 10 4:20 PM

Self-organising teams are a key component of all of the agile methodologies, but do teams and organisations know what they are actually letting themselves in for when signing up for things like Scrum? In my experience the definition of "self-organisation" is widely different from organisation to organisation, team to team and even individual to individual within a team. This leads to fear, sub-optimisation and in a lot of cases subversion of the principle such that teams are being directed to work in sprints or iterations. In this session, Geoff will share his experiences of self-organisation, the common characteristics that are required for self-organisation to work and how commonly these characteristics are found in organisations that say that are "doing agile".

Mono - A Great Platform for .NET in the Cloud 16 Jun 10 2:00 PM

ASP.NET WebForms and MVC apps run out-of-the-box on Mono on a variety of platforms. With so many options for hosting Linux servers on services such as EC2 and Linode, Mono has become an attractive platform for cloud deployment. This presentation will walk through several approaches to developing, debugging, and deploying .NET applications to the cloud with Mono.

I Can't Hear You - There's an ORM In My Ear: Effective Use of NoSQL In an ASP.NET MVC Web Application 16 Jun 10 2:00 PM

The NoSQL movement is gaining momentum (to many people's annoyance) and gaining many fans. For developers who haven't used a NoSQL solution (Object Database, Document Database, etc) it's a bit awkward to conceive of how you might do common tasks - like querying or generating application reports. In this talk Rob Conery shows how you can build an effective data access strategy using both NoSQL and traditional Relational Databases, focusing on using each system for its strengths rather than compensating for its weaknesses.

Lean Quality Assurance 16 Jun 10 3:00 PM

Quality Assurance (QA) in software worldwide has in fact degenerated into testing alone. Software⁄IT management has ignorantly allowed this to happen.Of course many parts of the industry have been well-aware of more cost-effective ways of delivering required quality in practice, but this has in fact been largely ignored; while granting very large resources to testing alone.It is time for a wakeup call!This manifesto is here to tell the industry that;testing alone is 10x more costly than doing Real QA. testing alone is not good enough, this can and need not go on. We know how to do real QA much much better than testing alone, using smarter upstream engineering practices, based on design, prevention and upstream inspections.

Design, Don't Decorate 16 Jun 10 3:00 PM

Putting the advanced capabilities of WPF and Silverlight to full use requires collaboration, experimentation, and iterative prototyping. In this session, you’ll see all five sequential prototypes for the acclaimed StaffLynx application (as seen on .NET Rocks TV), and discuss practices that worked and didn't work in real-world advanced UI development. We'll also discuss the role of visual and interactive designers in creating new era user interfaces, give some tips on how to think about using WPF and Silverlight capabilities to make interfaces feel natural and less stressful to users, and cover the most valuable lessons learned from a real-world project using advanced, next generation user interface technology.

Inside modern JavaScript 16 Jun 10 2:00 PM

JavaScript is a dynamic, functional, ubiquitous language that has many hidden secrets. In this session we will take a deep look at the core JavaScript features that many contemporary libraries leverage, including constructor functions, prototypical inheritance, closures, hash parameters, method chaining, and more. Having a solid grasp of these features will not only help you write more maintainable JavaScript code, but also allow you to take greater advantage of today’s JavaScript libraries.

CHESS - Finding & Reproducing Heisenbugs in Concurrent Programs 16 Jun 10 2:55 PM

CHESS is a tool from Microsoft Research that aims to find and reproduce hard to locate concurrency bugs. It does so by repeatedly running tests, systematically enumerating how the various threads are interleaved on each run. When (if) errors occur, CHESS can also then re--]run the specific interleaving that resulted in the error, massively simplifying the debugging effort.

Windows Azure Overview 16 Jun 10 1:54 PM

HASH(0x1060cd48)

What has Mono done for .NET developers Lately? 16 Jun 10 12:40 PM

Mono is an open-source, cross-platform implementation of the .NET framework based on the ECMA standards for C# and the Common Language Infrastructure. With Mono, users can run .NET applications written and compiled in Visual Studio on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. This session will provide an introduction to cross-platform development and deployment with Mono. Participants will see how they can leverage their existing skills and tools to write .NET applications that will run on multiple platforms and architectures with Mono.

Patterns for Parallel Programming 16 Jun 10 1:40 PM

Every five to ten years the world of computer programming is facing now a new paradigm shift, like GUI, object orientation, or generics. Right now we are facing a new paradigm shift, the multi-core one. Successful research in this area has been done for the past 30 years, but we are still not using the results efficiently. A pattern is a working solution to a recurring problem, and parallel⁄multi-core programming has its own problems which led to a set of patterns. Come and see in this session about which patterns exists in the area of parallel⁄multi-core programming and how they can be used with Visual Studio 2010.

How to Get the Best ROI From a Scrum Team as a Product Owner 16 Jun 10 12:37 PM

The Product Owner is probably the role that has received the least attention and help of all the three Scrum roles but it is paramount to an organisation's success with Scrum. While most projects benefit immediately from switching or adopting Scrum, to get the best out of the project a Product Owner really needs to understand both the team and the Scrum framework. In this tutorial Geoff will share his views and experiences of working with Scrum teams to provide you with a number of tips to improve your ROI.

.NET Design Patterns for Agile Software Processes 16 Jun 10 12:40 PM

In the world of agile programming techniques, one of your best tools is design patterns. This session provides practical examples and implementation of design patterns in .NET.

Architecture of the Client Tier for WPF & Silverlight 16 Jun 10 10:40 AM

Stateful client-based technologies for user interfaces, such as WPF and Silverlight, require more sophisticated design and architecture for the client tier than typical web applications. This session discusses the construction of a client-based navigation shell that replaces server-based navigation for a cleaner, more responsive user experience in multi-page applications. Implementation of capabilities such as data validation, temporary caching of unsaved data to allow for network downtime, and graceful shutdown will all be discussed. The session features a working model that attendees can use as a starting point for their own projects.

Individuals & Interaction Over Processes and Tools 16 Jun 10 10:40 AM

Although it is a simple value, the idea that individuals and interactions are more significant than processes and tools is overlooked perhaps more often than it is valued. Of course, processes and tools make a difference -- sometimes a very big difference -- but what determines whether a process or tool is effective is related to the individuals and interactions. To best achieve agility you need to start with the current context and understand how people actually behave in response to their environment, their beliefs and one another. What actually motivates and demotivates people, developers in particular? What actually makes their work easier or harder? Does making "business value" the centrepiece of what they do actually motivate the people who ultimately produce such business value? Or is it more about the individuals and interactions?

Strategies Against Architecture 16 Jun 10 9:18 AM

Good architecture requires good vision and good people, but there are times when actions and decisions taken with the best of intent begin to work against an architecture. Instead of helping a system achieve a long life, speculation about reuse, flexibility and generality can bring a system to an early grave, weighing the codebase down with accidental complexity that invites workarounds and, ultimately, a new ad hoc architectural style. Documentation intended to be helpful becomes shelfware, ignored equally by its authors and its prospective readership. Dysfunctional memes in code and tests go unchecked because the detail of code is not considered a part of the architecture. Instead of stability and responsiveness, an architecture achieves stasis and loses reflex.This session looks at the reality of how development process and practices interact with the grander vision of architecture, the pitfalls of "architect as cop" and how to employ speculation and uncertainty to a system's advantage.

A Style of Programming 16 Jun 10 9:17 AM

This talk describes a set of coding principles that constitutes a style of programming that focuses on ease of coding, ease of changing the code, and ease of testing the code. The presentation aims at helping programmers understand how the principles relate to actual code. Every principle is made concrete through examples. This style of programming is influenced by leading object oriented and agile developers, and it is perfect for applying on object oriented languages such as C#.

Multicore - The Future of Computing 16 Jun 10 10:16 AM

Since hitting both the memory and power wall about 3-5 years ago, all cpu vendors have been forced to turn from making the fastest possible single-thread cpu to instead putting several (sometimes simpler) cores on a single chip.Reducing the clock frequency by 50% can reduce power usage by 80%, so actual throughput per watt can improve a lot, as long as the code can be parallelized.Existing GPUs from Nvidia and AMD, Cell processors as used in the PS3 and Intel's announced Larrabee architecture can all supply an order of magnitude more fp processing power per watt than what is currently available from normal cpus.

Seven Key Factors for Agile Testing Success 16 Jun 10 10:13 AM

Agile development approaches present unique challenges for testers and test teams. Working in short iterations, often with limited written requirements, agile development teams can leave traditional testers behind. Common testing-related activities such as user acceptance testing, testing inter-product relationships, and installation testing need different approaches to fit into agile projects. Lisa Crispin explains seven key factors for testing success within agile projects that you can also apply to more traditional methodologies. Using a whole team approach and adopting an agile testing mindset are among the important components of a successful agile testing strategy. Learn how to overcome cultural and organizational obstacles and barriers to success in areas such as test automation. Discover the seven critical factors that provide a foundation for building your team's focus on quality and that deliver maximum value to your business.

Lean Quality Assurance 16 Jun 10 3:00 PM

Quality Assurance (QA) in software worldwide has in fact degenerated into testing alone. Software⁄IT management has ignorantly allowed this to happen.Of course many parts of the industry have been well-aware of more cost-effective ways of delivering required quality in practice, but this has in fact been largely ignored; while granting very large resources to testing alone.It is time for a wakeup call!This manifesto is here to tell the industry that;testing alone is 10x more costly than doing Real QA. testing alone is not good enough, this can and need not go on. We know how to do real QA much much better than testing alone, using smarter upstream engineering practices, based on design, prevention and upstream inspections.

Design, Don't Decorate 16 Jun 10 3:00 PM

Putting the advanced capabilities of WPF and Silverlight to full use requires collaboration, experimentation, and iterative prototyping. In this session, you’ll see all five sequential prototypes for the acclaimed StaffLynx application (as seen on .NET Rocks TV), and discuss practices that worked and didn't work in real-world advanced UI development. We'll also discuss the role of visual and interactive designers in creating new era user interfaces, give some tips on how to think about using WPF and Silverlight capabilities to make interfaces feel natural and less stressful to users, and cover the most valuable lessons learned from a real-world project using advanced, next generation user interface technology.

Inside modern JavaScript 16 Jun 10 2:00 PM

JavaScript is a dynamic, functional, ubiquitous language that has many hidden secrets. In this session we will take a deep look at the core JavaScript features that many contemporary libraries leverage, including constructor functions, prototypical inheritance, closures, hash parameters, method chaining, and more. Having a solid grasp of these features will not only help you write more maintainable JavaScript code, but also allow you to take greater advantage of today’s JavaScript libraries.

CHESS - Finding & Reproducing Heisenbugs in Concurrent Programs 16 Jun 10 2:55 PM

CHESS is a tool from Microsoft Research that aims to find and reproduce hard to locate concurrency bugs. It does so by repeatedly running tests, systematically enumerating how the various threads are interleaved on each run. When (if) errors occur, CHESS can also then re--]run the specific interleaving that resulted in the error, massively simplifying the debugging effort.
