A Different Kind of Conference

We know how it goes. You go to a conference, listen to awesome talks and leave full of ideas you can’t wait to implement. The next week you’re back at your desk and the finer details are slipping away...

ProgNET London does things differently.

With one day of talks followed by two days of practical hands-on workshops, ProgNET London has you put down those ‘lecture notes’ and start deploying your new skills straight away. Here, you’ll be writing your own code under the guidance of leading experts. So there’s no need to worry about those after-party beers wiping away your new-found .NET knowledge!

#ProgNET Wrap Up Presentation

17:45

End of #ProgNET 2019 - See you next year!

Join Tess Ferrandez at this year's ProgNET London and discover why WE are the guardians of our future! 👊💫




With 20+ years of experience in changing the way we do .NET bugging, Tess Ferrandez has helped develop a large number of mobile apps. As well as working in the world of data science and Machine Learning, she has spoken at many conferences around the world and helped many large companies with really tough ML problems.

What will you be sharing this year? What inspired you to give this talk?

I will be talking about the dark side of AI, and that it is up to us to take responsibility and make sure that the models we create work as we expect.

I am very interested in transparent and explainable Machine Learning as I have seen first hand on plenty of occasions, how easy it is to create models that produce answers that on he surface seem good, but turn out to be very biased or simply wrong. I am also a member of ethics boards at Microsoft where we review projects to make sure we have made good effort to think about how things can go wrong and avoid it, and want to share what I have learned there.

Which other talks from ProgNET are you excited about? And why?

Dylan Beattie is always an excellent speaker so I will make sure to see his talks.

What made you want to be a part of ProgNET this year?

I heard from a few attendees and speakers that last years conference was really good so was excited to be asked to join this year.

Do you have any blog posts/podcasts or materials you think people might enjoy reading before coming along to your talk?

I run a Machine Learning youtube channel with a few colleagues where we do weekly paper reviews and talk about the projects we work on

If you had to be an animal for the rest of your life, which animal would you be and why?

A cat for sure, I love cats and think they have this life figured out. Chill, play and don’t let things bother you all that much :)

Catch Tess at ProgNET London this September! More info on our Programme Page


Leader of Security and Microservices practices at Solliance, best selling author, Docker Captain, Microsoft MVP - and so much more! - Michele Leroux Bustamante will be joining us at ProgNET London 2019




Quite the expert, Michele Leroux Bustamante is recognized in many fields including software architecture and design, identity and access management, cloud computing and microservices architectures, security and compliance, and DevOps.

What will you be sharing this year? What inspired you to give this talk?

I'll be talking about the challenges customers face when they move to a microservices solution architecture, and providing tips on how to survive those challenges and prepare to put you in a position of success. Customer experiences drive a lot of the inspiration here, because while every solution and customer is different, the core set of challenges have a lot of commonality.

Which other talks from ProgNET are you excited about? And why?

All the microservices related talks look very interesting to me, of course, because there is so much room for perspective from different people's experiences, and it's great to hear others speak from their perspective. For example gRPC is definitely becoming popular, monitoring is critical to microservices success, and messaging is also a common architecture pattern we use - so these sessions look interesting:

Beyond HTTP in ASP.NET Core 3.0 with gRPC
Introducing a Culture of Monitoring
Communication in a microservice world

What made you want to be a part of ProgNET this year?

I've heard about this conference for years, people love it, so I'm excited to be a part of it this year! Plus some of my favorite speakers will be there :)

Do you have any blog posts/podcasts or materials you think people might enjoy reading before coming along to your talk?

I have a microservices repository on github that includes labs people can execute:

'Art of Unit Testing', 'Elastic Leadership' and 'Enterprise DevOps' author, Roy Osherove, will be part of this years ProgNET program!




Author of various books dedicated to Unit Testing and DevOps, Roy Osherove is an expert on consulting and training. He has worked in various technical positions in both small startups and some of the world's largest technology companies (Siemens, DELL, AT&T) and speaks in variouls venues around the world about topics such as UT and TDD, Leadership for technical leaders, and DevOps transformations and practices.

What will you be sharing this year? What inspired you to give this talk?

I'll be talking about my passion over the past decade: Pipeline Driven Cultures and Organizations.

Why are some organizations able to implement true continuous delivery, and others are endlessly struggling and striking out on the path there? I'll introduce the idea of pipeline-driven processes - and how those are different from "we just have a few Jenkins jobs lying around". By delegating Tactical day to day IT related decisions to pipelines, instead of letting humans make them, we can slowly achieve true continuous delivery. In a pipeline-driven world, testers need to learn new skills (coding, automation, coaching). Ops need to learn new skills (coaching, infra as code, testing). Security folks need to learn new skills (coaching, testing, automation and coding, ops). Devs need to learn new skills (coaching, testing, ops, security). Compliance need to learn new skills (automation, testing, coaching). Everyone is affected. Pipeline driven organizations pull us out of our silos and into more collaboration. It can be really painful if we don't know what to expect.

Which other talks from ProgNET are you excited about? And why?

Tess Fernandez's talk on Guardians of the Future sounds very promising!


What made you want to be a part of ProgNET this year?

ProgNet seems to have developed a great community around it of like minded people. I'd love to be part of that.


Do you have any blog posts/podcasts or materials you think people might enjoy reading before coming along to your talk?


Definitely read my blog at pipelinedriven.org and at 5whys.com Join me on twitter; @RoyOsherove


What is your favourite type of code?

Deleted code.

Oh, did everyone else say that too? That's like saying at a job interview "I try too much..".

OK. If it hasn't been deleted yet - code that I can understand without asking too many questions.

Sneak Preview

Join Tess Ferrandez at this year's ProgNET London and discover why WE are the guardians of our future! 👊💫




With 20+ years of experience in changing the way we do .NET bugging, Tess Ferrandez has helped develop a large number of mobile apps. As well as working in the world of data science and Machine Learning, she has spoken at many conferences around the world and helped many large companies with really tough ML problems.

What will you be sharing this year? What inspired you to give this talk?

I will be talking about the dark side of AI, and that it is up to us to take responsibility and make sure that the models we create work as we expect.

I am very interested in transparent and explainable Machine Learning as I have seen first hand on plenty of occasions, how easy it is to create models that produce answers that on he surface seem good, but turn out to be very biased or simply wrong. I am also a member of ethics boards at Microsoft where we review projects to make sure we have made good effort to think about how things can go wrong and avoid it, and want to share what I have learned there.

Which other talks from ProgNET are you excited about? And why?

Dylan Beattie is always an excellent speaker so I will make sure to see his talks.

What made you want to be a part of ProgNET this year?

I heard from a few attendees and speakers that last years conference was really good so was excited to be asked to join this year.

Do you have any blog posts/podcasts or materials you think people might enjoy reading before coming along to your talk?

I run a Machine Learning youtube channel with a few colleagues where we do weekly paper reviews and talk about the projects we work on

If you had to be an animal for the rest of your life, which animal would you be and why?

A cat for sure, I love cats and think they have this life figured out. Chill, play and don’t let things bother you all that much :)

Leader of Security and Microservices practices at Solliance, best selling author, Docker Captain, Microsoft MVP - and so much more! - Michele Leroux Bustamante will be joining us at ProgNET London 2019




Quite the expert, Michele Leroux Bustamante is recognized in many fields including software architecture and design, identity and access management, cloud computing and microservices architectures, security and compliance, and DevOps.

What will you be sharing this year? What inspired you to give this talk?

I'll be talking about the challenges customers face when they move to a microservices solution architecture, and providing tips on how to survive those challenges and prepare to put you in a position of success. Customer experiences drive a lot of the inspiration here, because while every solution and customer is different, the core set of challenges have a lot of commonality.

Which other talks from ProgNET are you excited about? And why?

All the microservices related talks look very interesting to me, of course, because there is so much room for perspective from different people's experiences, and it's great to hear others speak from their perspective. For example gRPC is definitely becoming popular, monitoring is critical to microservices success, and messaging is also a common architecture pattern we use - so these sessions look interesting:

Beyond HTTP in ASP.NET Core 3.0 with gRPC
Introducing a Culture of Monitoring
Communication in a microservice world

What made you want to be a part of ProgNET this year?

I've heard about this conference for years, people love it, so I'm excited to be a part of it this year! Plus some of my favorite speakers will be there :)

Do you have any blog posts/podcasts or materials you think people might enjoy reading before coming along to your talk?

I have a microservices repository on github that includes labs people can execute:

'Art of Unit Testing', 'Elastic Leadership' and 'Enterprise DevOps' author, Roy Osherove, will be part of this years ProgNET program!




Author of various books dedicated to Unit Testing and DevOps, Roy Osherove is an expert on consulting and training. He has worked in various technical positions in both small startups and some of the world's largest technology companies (Siemens, DELL, AT&T) and speaks in variouls venues around the world about topics such as UT and TDD, Leadership for technical leaders, and DevOps transformations and practices.

What will you be sharing this year? What inspired you to give this talk?

I'll be talking about my passion over the past decade: Pipeline Driven Cultures and Organizations.

Why are some organizations able to implement true continuous delivery, and others are endlessly struggling and striking out on the path there? I'll introduce the idea of pipeline-driven processes - and how those are different from "we just have a few Jenkins jobs lying around". By delegating Tactical day to day IT related decisions to pipelines, instead of letting humans make them, we can slowly achieve true continuous delivery. In a pipeline-driven world, testers need to learn new skills (coding, automation, coaching). Ops need to learn new skills (coaching, infra as code, testing). Security folks need to learn new skills (coaching, testing, automation and coding, ops). Devs need to learn new skills (coaching, testing, ops, security). Compliance need to learn new skills (automation, testing, coaching). Everyone is affected. Pipeline driven organizations pull us out of our silos and into more collaboration. It can be really painful if we don't know what to expect.

Which other talks from ProgNET are you excited about? And why?

Tess Fernandez's talk on Guardians of the Future sounds very promising!


What made you want to be a part of ProgNET this year?

ProgNet seems to have developed a great community around it of like minded people. I'd love to be part of that.


Do you have any blog posts/podcasts or materials you think people might enjoy reading before coming along to your talk?


Definitely read my blog at pipelinedriven.org and at 5whys.com Join me on twitter; @RoyOsherove


What is your favourite type of code?

Deleted code.

Oh, did everyone else say that too? That's like saying at a job interview "I try too much..".

OK. If it hasn't been deleted yet - code that I can understand without asking too many questions.
