Build: Building Progressive Web Apps for Windows

by DotNetNerd 22. May 2018 16:14

As my last video recommendation from Build this time around I will recommend taking a look at Jeff Burtoft talking about PWA’s on Windows. To me it is one of those topics where I mostly end up picking parts that are suited for what I am building, without going into everything under the umbrella. In that way, this talk suits me very well, because Jeff dives into the fairly few essentials they believe are required for a web app to be considered progressive.

Build: .NET overview & roadmap

by DotNetNerd 15. May 2018 16:48

aspnetcore-logo-591x360Continuing through the most important talks at Build I have come to the .NET overview and roadmap talk with the two Scotts, Hanselman and Hunter. They had a good combination of things I heard was coming, but also completely new stuff. It was well known that they are working on SignalR for .NET core, and one of the first demoes was running a SignalR app via Azure, which was really cool, and makes using and scaling SignalR a lot easier.

Build: The future of C#

by DotNetNerd 14. May 2018 17:02

Along the same line as the TypeScript talk, Mads Thorgersen and Dustin Campbell did a great talk about the future of C#, opening with some statistics that show how loved and widely used the language really is. Even though I am very much in love with F#, I am also quite happy doing my work in C#, as I have been for 14 years, so it is nice to see innovation in the language continue, and especially that they keep on drawing inspiration from F#.

Build: What’s new in TypeScript

by DotNetNerd 9. May 2018 19:41

So Build is well underway, and I finally got around to diving into some of the talks that are online. One of my early favorites is Anders Hejlsbergs talk on news in TypeScript.  Anders gives a good run through of the TypeScript typesystem, starting with the basics and covering why it is so different from other type systems, and in many ways ground breaking work even for a language designer like him.

A few thoughts on Visual Studio Team Services

by dotnetnerd 11. February 2016 14:08

VSTS-2015Visual Studio Online was recently renamed Visual Studio Team Services, which more accurately tells you what it is about. Sure, you can still browse and edit code, but it is just one feature, and not really a core one at that. On my current project I have had the chance to dive in a little deeper, and have a look at some of the features that VSTS has to offer. Although I have often been critical of these kinds of products, VSTS has been mostly a pleasent acquaintance.

Build: Azure App Services has a growth spurt

by DotNetNerd 4. May 2015 05:22

At Build there was a number of huge announcements. It is amazing to see that Azure is keeping up the pace, and as a developer I am excited about the promise of services that will enable me to focus on implementing solutions rather than fiddeling with servers and infrastructure.

Build: Microservices on Azure

by DotNetNerd 1. May 2015 10:13

Besides App Services, Azure offers an alternative that is slightly to the left of the far right on the big IaaS to PaaS scale called Azure Service Fabric. Conceptually Service Fabric is based on containers, allowing you to fit many services into a single VM and it gives you more fine grained control than with App Services by providing a manifest describing how it should operate.
