Now that we can declare dynamic objects in C#, how should we define our APIs? Typed, dynamic, mixed? In this session we will learn that sometimes it’s useful to create an API in two incarnations: as strong typed and dynamic one.
Today’s major .NET languages allow developers to use functional programming techniques that can reach far outside the realm of traditional imperative and object-oriented programming.
Visual Studio Online provides a compelling solution for building your code in the cloud and automatically deploying your solution to Azure. In this session we will dive deep into how this works for three common types of applications: .NET, Node.js, and PHP.
Web sites and applications can often benefit from integration with existing identity providers, allowing users to authenticate without creating new credentials. This video reviews a new wizard in Visual Studio 2013 for configuring security around ASP.NET sites in this fashion. You’ll see how easy it is to integrate your application with Windows Azure Active Directory, […]
To build today’s responsive and scalable applications, developers need to start leveraging asynchronous programming methods. During this talk, we’ll explore how developers can easily use the F# agent-based programming model, which is based upon the actor concurrency model first made popular in Erlang, to simply and quickly build concurrent applications.
Cross platform mobile development is the holy grail of development right now. In this talk we’ll examine strategies and patterns for maximizing code re-use when building native cross-platform mobile applications in C# with Xamarin that reuse back end code while still using platform-specific UX and taking advantage of platform-specific features.
