London.NET April 2018: Ian Cooper and Robin Minto

Thursday, 12th April at CodeNode, London

This meetup was organised by LDNUG: London .NET User Group in April 2018

Don't miss April's LDNUG meetup with Robin Minto talking on security in Cloud Native, and Ian Cooper who'll be telling us more about Nginx. Check it out!

Security in Cloud Native

Cloud-native is an approach that fully exploits the advantages of the cloud - it's how you build and run your applications to allow easy scaling and continuous deployment.

You may have seen the Twelve-Factor App methodology for developing applications that embrace a cloud-native philosophy but with that, there's little or no guidance on security.

Security can't be an afterthought and cloud-native is no different. This talk looks at how to approach security for an app deployed to the cloud. Can you forget about infrastructure security? Where should you focus your attention? Is cloud-native more secure?

We'll consider the similarities and differences between traditional apps and cloud-native apps. We'll look at how you can avoid the most common security vulnerabilities that affect cloud apps and we'll look at approaches applicable to both Linux and Windows. You'll come away knowing how to be more secure in cloud-native.

Robin Minto

Robin is a developer/technical architect working for ByBox, a supply chain technology company in the UK. He’s passionate about development, continuous improvement and all things security (he's a Certified Ethical Hacker). With one foot in Dev and another in Ops, he’s as happy in C# as in PowerShell, in Visual Studio or Hyper-V, in Javascript or Docker.

Nginx for .NET Developers

With the move to .NET Core, IIS is no longer the default web server for ASP.NET deployments. Instead ASP.NET apps are self-hosted and by default run in Kestrel. Kestrel is fast, and like Node.JS is based off the libuv async I/O library. But it's also optimized to talk to Nginx, another web server. Why would you need two webservers? What is Nginx?

In this talk we will explain the mysteries of Nginx to you. We will focus particularly on its role as a reverse proxy in front of Kestrel, but also cover its use for load balancing. By the end you should understand what Nginx is, when to use it, and how. You will even learn how to pronounce Nginx.
