Keynote: Progressing Apps the PWA Way

Progressive Web Apps are a wonderful way to make the web and the app space work in harmony. There is a lot of confusion though about what they are and what we should do to make them a true success. In this keynote, Chris Heilmann will share the why and how of PWA beyond "make it work offline on the newest mobile devices".

Christian Heilmann

Improve Performance and Security with Fiddler

In this talk, the creator of Fiddler will demonstrate how to use the tool to optimize sites and services for both performance and security. We’ll enumerate bottlenecks in the web platform and explore how to use Fiddler to discover and fix performance problems with your websites. We’ll then move on to security, using Fiddler to observe interactions with your sites and services and probe them for security weaknesses that could be exploited by attackers. Fiddler users of all skill levels, from novice to expert, will come away with practical techniques to evaluate and improve the security of their web-facing code.

Eric Lawrence
13:45
Building Reusable UI Components in ASP.NET Core MVC

ASP.NET proper MVC developers have long relied upon partial views and HTML helpers to construct reusable UI components. ASP.NET Core MVC expands upon the arsenal of options for creating such UI components by introducing view components and tag helpers. Do these new offerings render partial views and HTML helpers obsolete? Absolutely not! Using the right tool for the job is important, which means understanding the differences between these options is paramount. In this session, you’ll gain an understanding of when it’s most appropriate to use each of them in the real world. You’ll also see how to create basic view components and tag helpers.

Scott Addie
15:00
UWP goodness for all!

Shen will show you the power of Universal Windows Platform. In this session you will learn some of the fantastic features UWP offers, and how you can leverage them through your application experiences to give your users that warm fuzzy feeling. This session will involve time in Visual Studio and live demos.

Shen Chauhan
16:15
From Start to Finish of a SQL Server Performance Battle (a story from real life)

Performance problems happen more often than not in SQL Server. In this session, you’ll hear real stories from the field, see where to start when a performance problem occurs and learn how to achieve a great win in your SQL Server performance battle. We’ll discuss common scenarios of non-effective code usage, improper configurations and bad query patterns and show how and why they affect overall SQL Server performance. You’ll learn tips and tricks coming from real-world scenarios that you can use in your environment to perform a baseline and isolate performance issues as they occur.

Magi Naumova
17:30
Full Stack REST

Designing and consuming web APIs is simple, but hypermedia-rich REST APIs can be daunting. Hypermedia breaks the client-server coupling, allowing clients to adapt and react to instructions from a REST API. This is where most developers abandon hypermedia, when the effort of building client consumers becomes apparent. However, the React.js immutable and component-based design are perfect for the interaction model of REST and hypermedia. In this session, we’ll look at end-to-end REST, from building out a server API with ASP.NET Core serving hypermedia-rich responses to clients in the browser consuming the API to build truly reactive clients.

Introduction to AI Using Azure Cognitive Services

Want to harness the power of machine learning, but don’t have a team of data scientists on staff? Azure Cognitive Services has you covered! Infuse your apps, websites, and bots with intelligent algorithms to see, hear, speak, understand and interpret your user needs – and use the language you feel comfortable with (C#, Python, R, more!).

In this workshop, we’ll be walking through applied examples of Vision, Knowledge, Language, Speech, and Search. How old does Kevin Bacon look, really? Which pictures show a “cute fennec fox” versus a “cute red panda”? What does “Ich bin ein Berliner” mean in plain Mandarin? How many of the X-Men wear glasses? Learn the answers to these questions, and walk away with a collection of Jupyter notebooks with basic implementations of every Cognitive Service offering!

Paige Bailey
13:45
Plugging in to NativeScript plugins

As rich as the standard feature set of NativeScript is, it can’t do everything on its own. Luckily it’s stupidly easy to add a plugin to your project, and it’s not as hard as you might think to create one yourself. Allow me to show you a few fun and popular ones, give a quick overview of how they work, and how they are built.

Eddy Verbruggen
15:00
A Tale of Two Viewports

What are the two viewports? (Spoiler: layout and visual.) Why do we need two? Why does responsive design work? (Not how. Why.) What happens when you set the meta viewport? How do browsers go wrong? (Spoiler: in plenty of innovative ways.) And what about resolution, or DPR? (Spoiler: it is not what you think it is.) What does the recent Chrome update change? In this session PPK, who spent more time on the mobile viewport than anyone not working for a browser vendor, answers these questions and more.

Peter Paul Koch
16:15
Building a roboarmy with Angular and NativeScript

Taking over the world is not an easy challenge. It requires good strategy and a powerful army. What better soldiers than a mass of obedient robots? You just need a way to issue them instruction via their BLE interface. But should you choose to build a web app or a native mobile app? With Angular you can do both; just add Web Bluetooth API to build a web app and NativeScript to build a native mobile app. Join this session to learn how it all works, to see how to get started, and to swear fealty to your new robot overlords.

Sebastian Witalec
17:30
Declarative programming: The future of chatbots, AI and cognitive computing

In this session, Hristo Borisov will talk about how declarative programming helped the Darvin.ai team create a chatbot for a hospital 16 times faster and 2 cheaper than building it using imperative programming languages such as .NET or JavaScript. The chatbot has helped patients book doctor appointments by simply talking to it and in turn reduced the workload of the hospital’s contact center by 30%. If you are creating a smart app or a chatbot that relies on some cognitive services to do the heavy lifting for you, and you end up writing imperative code, you must be doing something wrong.

Vue.js - The Next Big Thing In JavaScript

If you feel like modern web development with Angular and React has gotten way too complicated, Vue.js might be the JavaScript framework for you. With over 10K stars on Github, Vue.js has vaulted out of relative obscurity to find companies such as GitLab choosing to use it over React. In this session, we’ll take a look at why Vue.js is so popular, what makes it different from Angular and React and how easy it is to stand up and deploy a simple Vue.js application. Vue.js is a brilliant piece of JavaScript engineering, and it just might make you rethink your next app.

Burke Holland
13:45
Understanding RxJS

Angular was a large rewrite of the whole AngularJS framework. Not only was everything changed but Promises where switched out for this new and shiny library, RxJS. Wasn’t Promises good enough? What can RxJS possible offer over Promises? This talk will showcase that RxJS is not only mirroring the functionality of Promises but it is adding a lot more to the async paradigm and it is everywhere in the new Angular framework. Expect to have questions like Why, What and how hard is it to learn, answered at the end of the session.

Chris Noring
15:00
Getting into Ecmascript 6, 7 & Beyond

In the early 2000s, even up until recently, JavaScript was considered by many to be little more than a joke. Dismissed as a "toy language," JavaScript remained static for many years due to cross-browser compatibility constraints and divergent goals among browser vendors. Even as web development flourished, much of the innovation in front-end development took place in the frameworks that sat on top of JavaScript.

In the last 5 years, everything has changed. Not only is the JavaScript language (via the Ecmascript standard) expanding and improving, but a bevy of browser and tooling improvements have cleared the path for developers to adopt new language features faster than ever before. There’s never been a better time to be on the cutting edge of the world’s most popular language.

The blistering pace of change in the language is a solid improvement on the static days of the past, but it’s becoming tricky to keep up with what’s new and what’s coming in JavaScript. In this session, we’ll discuss many of the useful new features in ES6, some exciting stuff coming in ES7 and 8 as well as some tools and resources essential for the JavaScript developer looking to use the latest and greatest in the language.

Brandon Satrom
16:15
The Rise of the State Machines

Developing UI may look simple but in fact is a lot more complicated. And one of the most difficult things is managing state. Actually most of our work as front-end engineers is exactly that - managing state. Most of us don’t even realizing it but we are implementing a state machine every time when we make an Ajax request, validating form fields or toggle a tooltip. Come to this presentation to learn what exactly is a state machine and how will make your life easier.

Krasimir Tsonev
17:30
Why I Was Wrong About TypeScript

In 2014, I made a strong argument that TypeScript was destined to be irrelevant and that my company should not use it in any of our projects. I was wrong. In 2017, TypeScript is taking over the JavaScript world, and we now use TypeScript for pretty much everything we build. In this talk we’ll talk a look at why TypeScript succeeded where other compile-to-JavaScript languages like CoffeeScript and Dart have languished. Come to learn the basics of TypeScript, and whether TypeScript is a good fit for your next project.

TJ VanToll

Flying High with Xamarin!

Cross-platform mobile development has been democratized for .NET developers – thanks to Xamarin & Microsoft. Let’s build a cool aviation app together – targeting all platforms from the comforts of Visual Studio on Windows or Mac. Real world apps need cloud data connectivity, navigation, storage, lifecycle management, plugins and polished UI – let’s do all that. Let’s take a look at some must-have tooling for professional Xamarin developers. Let’s dip into device capabilities, reuse libraries and elevate the user experience. Oh, and we’ll throw in some passion for aviation in the app, like private jets and supersonic possibilities.

Sam Basu
10:45
SOLID ASP.NET Core

ASP.NET Core is the ground-up rewrite of ASP.NET, MVC and Web API, bringing a new paradigm in building web applications and APIs in .NET. With this rewrite brought new techniques in building SOLID applications, and updated some existing patterns and tools. In this session, we’ll take a lap around some of the major extension points of ASP.NET Core 2.0, walking through how these features can help us build cleaner, more maintainable systems. We’ll cover web APIs, traditional MVC applications, controllers, views, filters, dependency injection, tag helpers and more. With a SOLID foundation, our ASP.NET Core applications will be dead simple to build and maintain.

Jimmy Bogard

The Future of Fiddler

Our view of the future - Fiddler on every major platform & remote web debugging in Fiddler. In retrospective, from Mono to .Net Standard and our way to Fiddler on all platforms. Where we stand now and FiddlerCore (the engine behind Fiddler) for .NET Standard. Where we want to be - .NET Core/Xamarin and executing Fiddler on all platforms. Multiplying the effect of Fiddler running on all platforms via Fiddler Orchestra and remote web debugging.

Tsviatko Yovtchev
14:30
Angular, the ASP.NET Pitch

In this session we’ll cover the decisions you’ll face when using Angular with ASP.NET Core. We’ll review project template options, Visual Studio integration points, and the role it serves in Angular architecture. After this session you’ll be ready to choose the right path for your next Angular app.

Ed Charbeneau
15:45
UWP Community and Open Source

Shen will discuss a couple of his favorite open source UWP projects - Windows Template Studio and the UWP Community Toolkit. In this session you’ll learn: What are they? How do you use them? And how you can participate. If you love live coding demo’s, then you are going to love this session!

Shen Chauhan
17:00
What’s New in ASP.NET Core 2.0?

Razor Pages and SPA Templates and Runtime Store, oh my! These new features are merely a sampling of the bits unveiled with ASP.NET Core 2.0. What else is in store for this release? More importantly, what does the 2.0 release mean for your existing ASP.NET Core 1.x application? Jump aboard for a code-heavy tour of what’s new in ASP.NET Core 2.0. Leave the session with knowledge of how to upgrade from ASP.NET Core 1.x to 2.x and knowledge of which features and enhancements will pay dividends in your application.

"Killing the Cloud" and Other Ways to Design for a World of a Trillion Connected Devices

The "Internet of Things" continues to receive a lot of attention from analysts, prognosticators and the press. Whether making claims about hundreds of billions of connected devices or tens of trillions of dollars of market opportunity, some would have you believe that the IoT age is now and a great, green field of opportunity awaits.

But despite an increasing parade of connected devices from manufacturers, most non-technical consumers want nothing to do with the IoT as it exists today, and each story of a hacked door lock or a security breach on the web server of a connected dishwasher gives millions of people pause about stepping into this brave new world.

As developers and designers, we’re failing to deliver on the promises of pervasive and connected computing, and we need to do better. Doing so starts with changing our basic assumptions about the future of computing and embracing a few contrarian opinions. In this session, Brandon will discuss ideas and share a blueprint for design in an era of trillions of connected smart devices.

Mobile Development Inside-Out with NativeScript and Kinvey

NativeScript lets you write native iOS and Android apps using JavaScript. Kinvey lets you easily manage your data and connect to existing data sources. Together the two technologies let you build awesome mobile apps that your users will love.

In this session you’ll learn how it all works. First, you’ll learn how NativeScript makes JavaScript-based app development possible, how to use NativeScript with frameworks like Angular and Vue, and how to use the latest and greatest tooling available in the NativeScript world. Next, you’ll learn about the powerful things you can do with data with Kinvey, like online/offline data synchronization and some pretty cool cloud code functionality. Come to see us build a wide variety of apps and learn how to build them yourself 🎉

Jen Looper and TJ VanToll
12:00
NativeScript Angular 101

Learn how NativeScript integrates with Angular and how Angular’s platform agnostic nature make it possible to build truly native iOS and Android applications with TypeScript. Together we’ll build a real-world application that covers the mechanics of both framework. We’ll show the developer workflow we recommend - scaffolding and livesyncing, debugging with Chrome Dev Tools, writing UI tests in TypeScript with Appium.

Stanimira Vlaeva and Alexander Vakrilov
14:30
Going Serverless With Azure Functions

Serverless has been a buzzword for some time now and it is time to explore what it has to offer to devs, IT, and the business. We will explore in depth how we can use Azure Functions to create more responsive, cost-effective, and scalable apps. We will also touch upon Queue storage which often goes hand in hand with Azure Functions and event-based architectures.

Milan Nankov
15:45
Make Your Mobile Apps Smarter with Machine Learning and NativeScript

Do you ever wake up in a cold sweat, thinking that your mobile apps are both boring and stupid? When this happens, you start to question yourself, asking why your apps aren’t more empathetic, why they don’t respond better to your users’ needs. Even if you have built a performant app with a great UI, you can leverage new methods of adding machine learning to your apps to create a really useful and enticing mobile app experience. In this talk, you’ll learn some basics of machine learning and how to integrate it into your mobile app, first with some clever APIs, and then with custom trained models using TensorFlow. Come learn how to send your apps back to school and level up their innate ‘intelligence’!

Jen Looper

Introduction to Azure Notebooks

Azure Notebooks is a free service that provides Jupyter notebooks along with supporting packages for R, Python, and F# as a service. Jupyter (formerly iPython) is a multi-lingual REPL on steroids! That means that you can just login and get going, since no installation / setup is necessary.

Typical usage includes schools and academic instruction; giving webinars; learning languages; sharing ideas; experimenting and prototyping machine learning solutions; and even presenting in slide mode! Code can access Azure, GitHub, PyPi, CRAN, OneDrive, DropBox, and Google Drive, as well as a number of other websites – and URL links to the notebooks you create can be distributed externally. Publishing your work is as simple as one button-click!

In this workshop, we’ll be demoing special extensions and libraries included with Jupyter notebooks, as well as walking through a short machine learning example from Jake Vanderplas’ Python Data Science Handbook (included for free on the Azure Notebooks website).

PWA All The Things

Progressive Web Apps give us resources to make our web applications more accessible and reliable. There are so many ways to build web applications including using Angular, React and Vue. Let’s look at ALL of them and what it takes to build them into PWAs. We’ll be using the cli tools and Kendo UI component libraries to quickly spin up a robust application. Then we’ll take advantage of the PWA strategies and see how these apps look on multiple platforms. This will be a high-level overview of what it takes to create an application in each of these languages and add the benefits of making each one a PWA.

How to be a Good Open Source Citizen

"Your code sucks", "Why don’t you implement my feature?", "I need you to fix this ASAP" - just a few quotes I found on my GitHub while preparing for this talk. GitHub makes it easy to share your own work with the world and to contribute to projects of others. Maintainers should try to welcome others to their project, while consumers should report issues like their mother needs to fix them. And better still, (try to) fix them by creating a Pull Request! My motto is "don’t complain, fix" and I hope this talk will inspire you to do the same :)

Eddy Verbruggen

HTTPS in 2017

Non-secure HTTP cannot meet users’ security and privacy expectations. Fortunately, moving sites of any size and complexity to HTTPS is easier than it has ever been. Certificates can be acquired automatically at no cost, new protocols like HTTP/2 and Brotli compression mean that secure connections can improve performance, and web developers can utilize features like Upgrade-Insecure-Requests and Referrer Policy to avoid common pitfalls as they upgrade legacy sites to HTTPS. In this talk, you’ll get practical advice to defuse common concerns about migrating to HTTPS and learn to optimize and debug your secure site using browser tools, online checkers, and the Fiddler Web Debugger.

Eric Lawrence

Visual Studio Code Can Do THAT?

Visual Studio Code is on 🔥. Everybody ❤️’s this unexpected Electron-based text editor, and for good reason: it can do A LOT. It can compile Angular templates on the fly, debug native mobile applications, execute JavaScript inline and so much more! In this session, we’ll take a look at the most powerful features and plugins in Visual Studio Code, many of which, nobody knows about. This is Visual Studio Code like you’ve never 👀 it before.

Using Kendo UI with Angular

There are many alternatives to style your components today like Bootstrap, Angular Material even Ionic has its own style. Kendo UI components offer something more. It offers styling as well as functionality that will save you as a developer a lot of time. Working with them is even easier. Let’s showcase what these controls are and what functionality they have that could really impress your next customer.

Web Development – it’s different in the Enterprise

Web development for internal enterprise users is often dismissed as ‘second class’ web development. In reality, it’s different and better (even if the rewards are lower); we treat our users as real people, our applications run in a safe and controlled environment and are not a source of malware or viruses.

It’s time to embrace these advantages and explore new architectures that allow us to look at how our users work to offer a UX that is integrated across all the applications they run. This in turn can enable us to radically change the way we develop and deliver in the Enterprise.

Enterprise developers of the world connect, you have nothing to lose but your sandboxes!
