Excited to have workshop host Michał Jankowski share his Azure knowledge at this year's ProgNET!





I would like to invite you to my new workshop – Serverless Azure. First of them will be conducted during Progressive .NET 2017 conference. It will take place in London on 14th September 2017.

During 3.5 hours of workshops you will learn how to use Azure platform to build serverless applications. Through different examples, you will explore on Azure Functions and Azure Logic Apps. You will discover how easy it is to build and integrate your applications. Finally, you will learn how to build, deploy, manage and monitor your application. Together with examples, I will point out main pros and cons of used platform. This talk will help you in deciding whether you should use serverless approach.

With this approach building scalable and secure applications has become easier. Developers can finally focus on solution creation and express creativity in providing new features.

.NET wizard Steve Gordon shares some love and excitement for this year's ProgNET!




Back in early May I was listening to a .NET Rocks episode when Carl and Richard mention a conference called Progressive .NET Tutorials that they would be attending in London. I’m a big believer in attending conferences as I find that it’s to be a great way to learn new skills and network with similarly minded people. I headed over to the Progressive .NET website to check out the details about the event.

The full line-up was not complete when I made that first visit, but the keynote from Jon Galloway had me sold already. Then a section lower down the page caught my eye and there began the events leading to me speaking at my first conference! I’d noticed the call for papers signup form and having already been thinking about opportunities to do more technical speaking, I decided that I would submit a talk; in fact I ended up submitting two potential talks. After submitting, the wait began until after the closing deadline passed and the organisers began selecting speakers. Something that is great about Progressive .NET is that were welcoming to first time speakers as well as experienced ones.

About 3 weeks ago I received an email from Nicole at Skills Matter and was delighted to read that one of my talks had been selected for inclusion in the 2017 programme. I’ll be presenting a talk entitled, Docker for .NET Developers. In this talk I’ll be sharing with the audience a journey that our team at Madgex have been on; using Docker as we develop a new product. This has been our first experience with Docker and along the way we’ve learned a lot. We are now using Docker not only to simplify the developer workflow, but also for our build and deployment process. We are leveraging Amazon EC2 Container Services to host our production system which is built using .NET Core based microservices.

I’m really excited about the content I’m building for this talk. I’ll be sharing the things we’ve learnt about Docker in our experience so far. I’ll take a look at what Docker is, what problems it has helped us solve and how we implemented it in our developer and deployment workflows. Along the way we’ll take a look at some demos of what this looks like in code, exploring dockerfiles, docker-compose and our build and deployment process. I hope this talk will be useful to developers looking to begin using Docker in their own projects. We’ll start with the basics but by the end of the session I hope to show an example of how we do a build and live deploy, with zero downtime into AWS. It’s a very exciting time to be a .NET developer and the release of the cross-platform .NET Core framework has opened the door to this exciting new application platform. I’m excited to see where the new framework takes us in the next 12 months as we see the release of .NET Core 2.0. Architectures and strategies around microservices and serverless are also creating some interesting new ways for developers to think about building new applications.

Over the years I’ve learned a lot from the .NET community, reading blog posts, listening to podcasts and watching videos. I have a passion for learning new things and investigating new techniques. Watching talks from many great speakers has influenced my personal growth, shown me new ideas and helped me develop my technical skills. I’m looking forward to the chance to begin participating more directly by talking about some of the things we’ve learned about Docker and Amazon ECS. I will be giving it my all to present a fast paced, information packed talk about Docker and hopefully help other developers to begin using it. I’m extremely passionate about what I do and the chance to share that with an audience of peers at this event is very exciting.

I’m extremely honoured and privileged to be joining such an amazing line-up of world class experts at this event. Many of the of speakers are people whom I follow and who share great content in their areas of expertise. It’ll be exciting to attend some of their sessions and learn more about all of the other great topics being discussed at this event.

I look forward to the opportunity to meet some fellow developers at the conference. If you’re free on September 13th – 15th then I do recommend that you take a look at the website and buy yourself a ticket. I hope to see some of you there, please do come and say hi!

Jon Skeet of Stack Overflow fame shares some thoughts on the upcoming ProgNET!




Progressive .NET 2017 will be held on September 13th-15th in London.

The agenda is already available, and looks pretty awesome. I’d go into details of who I’m most looking forward to hearing, but it’s too tricky to rank talks with that line-up… Of course, I’m mostly looking forward to catching up with people afterwards. (In particular Carl and Richard, whose talk I won’t be able to attend without leaving my own audience somewhat disappointed.)

This is my most Google-centric talk of the three – it’ll show how you can get going on ASP.NET Core in Google Cloud Platform, with both AppEngine Flexible Environment and Google Container Engine. Basically, I get to show off what my team’s been working on for the last couple of years, which is always fun… although this talk is more about the tools than the libraries I specifically work on.

My colleague Mete Atamel will be approaching a related topic from a different angle – he’ll be going into more detail on the ASP.NET Core + Docker + Kubernetes stack.

About 3 weeks ago I received an email from Nicole at Skills Matter and was delighted to read that one of my talks had been selected for inclusion in the 2017 programme. I’ll be presenting a talk entitled, Docker for .NET Developers. In this talk I’ll be sharing with the audience a journey that our team at Madgex have been on; using Docker as we develop a new product. This has been our first experience with Docker and along the way we’ve learned a lot. We are now using Docker not only to simplify the developer workflow, but also for our build and deployment process. We are leveraging Amazon EC2 Container Services to host our production system which is built using .NET Core based microservices.

I’m really excited about the content I’m building for this talk. I’ll be sharing the things we’ve learnt about Docker in our experience so far. I’ll take a look at what Docker is, what problems it has helped us solve and how we implemented it in our developer and deployment workflows. Along the way we’ll take a look at some demos of what this looks like in code, exploring dockerfiles, docker-compose and our build and deployment process. I hope this talk will be useful to developers looking to begin using Docker in their own projects. We’ll start with the basics but by the end of the session I hope to show an example of how we do a build and live deploy, with zero downtime into AWS. It’s a very exciting time to be a .NET developer and the release of the cross-platform .NET Core framework has opened the door to this exciting new application platform. I’m excited to see where the new framework takes us in the next 12 months as we see the release of .NET Core 2.0. Architectures and strategies around microservices and serverless are also creating some interesting new ways for developers to think about building new applications.

Over the years I’ve learned a lot from the .NET community, reading blog posts, listening to podcasts and watching videos. I have a passion for learning new things and investigating new techniques. Watching talks from many great speakers has influenced my personal growth, shown me new ideas and helped me develop my technical skills. I’m looking forward to the chance to begin participating more directly by talking about some of the things we’ve learned about Docker and Amazon ECS. I will be giving it my all to present a fast paced, information packed talk about Docker and hopefully help other developers to begin using it. I’m extremely passionate about what I do and the chance to share that with an audience of peers at this event is very exciting.

I’m extremely honoured and privileged to be joining such an amazing line-up of world class experts at this event. Many of the of speakers are people whom I follow and who share great content in their areas of expertise. It’ll be exciting to attend some of their sessions and learn more about all of the other great topics being discussed at this event.

I look forward to the opportunity to meet some fellow developers at the conference. If you’re free on September 13th – 15th then I do recommend that you take a look at the website and buy yourself a ticket. I hope to see some of you there, please do come and say hi!

Jon Skeet of Stack Overflow fame shares some thoughts on the upcoming ProgNET!




Progressive .NET 2017 will be held on September 13th-15th in London.

The agenda is already available, and looks pretty awesome. I’d go into details of who I’m most looking forward to hearing, but it’s too tricky to rank talks with that line-up… Of course, I’m mostly looking forward to catching up with people afterwards. (In particular Carl and Richard, whose talk I won’t be able to attend without leaving my own audience somewhat disappointed.)

This is my most Google-centric talk of the three – it’ll show how you can get going on ASP.NET Core in Google Cloud Platform, with both AppEngine Flexible Environment and Google Container Engine. Basically, I get to show off what my team’s been working on for the last couple of years, which is always fun… although this talk is more about the tools than the libraries I specifically work on.

My colleague Mete Atamel will be approaching a related topic from a different angle – he’ll be going into more detail on the ASP.NET Core + Docker + Kubernetes stack.
