Spencer Schneidenbach
ASP.NET Core’s Philosophies, Processes and Tools

Microsoft has built a rich ecosystem around the various flavors of ASP.NET – MVC, Web API and even WebForms have a place in the modern web development world. So what the heck is up with ASP.NET Core anyways? Microsoft has flipped the ASP.NET world on its head with this fast, cross-platform web framework, designed from the ground up with developers from all walks of life in mind – and the change isn’t as scary as you think.

In this session, we’ll learn about ASP.NET Core and its design philosophies. We’ll learn about how an ASP.NET Core project is created and how to leverage several popular development tools frequently used by developers outside of the ASP.NET ecosystem, including Gulp, Bower, Node and NPM. Finally, we’ll talk about the ASP.NET Core’s impact on the current generation of ASP.NET users.

Spencer Schneidenbach is a web developer in the St. Louis area, focusing on JavaScript, C#, AngularJS, and ASP.NET. He currently works as the Platform Architect at Ryvit/Gadellnet, leading the technical decisions on the platform as well as mentoring other developers. While not at work, he enjoys speaking, blogging, reading, and spending time with his two kids and wife.

ASP.NET Core – deep dive on building a real website with today’s bits

In this session we'll go through some of the things you will need to know when building a real application with ASP.NET Core framework. We'll start off by reviewing the structure of an ASP.NET Core app, how it gets deployed, how to do some common tasks like custom error pages and logging, and then publish the application to Azure cloud.

Kevin is the President of a St. Louis-based consulting firm ArchitectNow. He and his team spend their days developing great software and brainstorming the next great app ideas. Kevin has been recognized as a Microsoft MVP for the past five years and has just been recognized as an ASPInsider.

John Baluka
Open Source .NET eCommerce Solutions - Compared

The search for an enterprise level Open Source project based on .NET (ASP.NET MVC, Entity Framework) using current web frameworks (jQuery, Bootstrap, Kendo UI, Angular, or React), that applies best practices (Unit Testing, Issue Tracking, Good Documentation) and is used in production environments whether self-hosted or hosted in Azure – was not easy to find. I will share the journey that lead to narrowing to two eCommerce solutions – nopCommerce and Virto Commerce. These quality solutions will be compared at feature and code levels. Who will win…?

John has been developing software with the Microsoft stack for 20+ years. For most of the last 10 years, John has been a sub-contractor, business owner, and a Dad. John enjoys researching and applying new technologies to real world examples.

Spencer Schneidenbach
Getting Started with Angular 2 and TypeScript

The web world has become increasingly more complex over the past few years. The demand for fast, fluid single page applications (or SPAs) has gone up, along with the seemingly endless number of frameworks used to build them. The most popular among them, Angular 1, took the SPA world by storm seven years ago. Since then, it’s been adopted by many developers and firms looking to build rich, feature-fill applications for the web, mobile, and beyond.

Angular 2 looks to continue that trend with a library that is more performant, lighter, and easier to use. In this session, we’ll learn about components, directives, services, and dependency injection, as well as the new Angular 2 syntax. We’ll also learn about TypeScript, Microsoft’s open source superset of JavaScript that enables fast, fluid, fun, and safe development. Learn about some of the features of TypeScript that enable us to rapidly develop and easily maintain Angular 2 applications with ease, including classes, decorators, and compile-time type checking.

Real world IoT – what they don’t tell you in the maker’s kit

In this session, we will run through the basic IoT kit. We’ll talk about options to get started. We’ll even walk through the hello blinky project to show off some basic code.

Once you have a feel for the basic, we will dig into the real world side by looking at a few recent IoT projects. In these architecture & code reviews, we’ll look at the following concepts and ways to address them:

  • How to choose & talk to sensors
  • Securely connecting remote devices to Azure
  • High volume (Many device) streaming analysis
  • Storing massive amounts of device data
  • Command & control – how to write code that changes the real world
