Building Great Distributed Applications Easily with ASP.NET Web API

Distributed computing is a reality that most developers have to deal with these days. The mobile form factor is huge! While the platforms (iOS, Android, Windows 8) are radically different, the method of delivering data to applications on these devices doesn't have to be. How do you create one set of back-end services that can provide and consume data from all three of these platforms? Companies have realized that one of their most valuable assets is their data. But how can that data quickly and easily be put in the hands of the people who can utilize it? The answer to both of these questions can be found in RESTful web services.

The Tao of Testing

Developers and Testers – Yin and yang – seemingly opposing forces which come together to form a complete system. Join me on a journey to decipher how the tester thinks - by making tea. People often ask “what is testing?”, or “how do you test something?”, and I like to explain by applying testing techniques to something that we all understand, “How to make a cup of tea”. All very Oriental I know, but we’ll take a process that everyone can relate to and demonstrate how you would approach it as a tester. However experienced you are, it’s easy to forget some of the basic principles of testing. This talk will show you how to apply testing to new tasks, and help remind you of the fundamental principles of testing. I’ve come across several techniques over the years, but I believe it still all boils down to remembering the basics. So, if you are new to testing and want to learn the basics, or if you have been doing it for a while and want a reminder of the reason you love it, then this is the talk for you. This session is for anyone who wants to work through how to apply testing capabilities, including some optional audience participation as well, as the best way to learn is by doing.

Isolate Your Tests with Mocks

An important goal of Test Driven Development (TDD) is to be able to isolate your code under test. This means the method and class you are testing at any given time should not interact with other classes or external resources like data stores or web services. So how do you test code the relies on these things? You use mock objects to stand in for them! This session will explain the basics of mocking including the different types of mocks (mocks, stubs, fakes, etc.). You will see how to use a mocking framework to make your test writing fast, easy and more dependable. You will also learn some good patterns for creating and using mocks and shown some anti-patterns to avoid. Lastly, you'll be shown how to introduce mocking and unit testing into an environment that was not really designed for it.

We Don't Need Roads: A Developer's Look Into SQL Server Indexes.

Have you ever ran a SQL or LINQ query against SQL Server and it was so slow that you wondered if the database was from 1955? You could use a Delorean or you can create indexes in your database. This session will introduce you to SQL Server indexes. Indexes are a powerful tool to improve the performance of our queries. We'll discuss how indexes are structured and why they speed up queries, how INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE queries are affected by indexes and how to identify if an index is necessary. Then, we'll take a look at an Entity Framework application and see how EF reacts to our fresh new indexes. If you want to make bad query performance a thing of the past this session is for you.

Exploiting PaaS to add functionality and enforce policy in your applications

Easy deployment is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to PaaS (Platform as a Service). As developers, we should spend our time writing the code only we can write. In this talk, I will show how you can leverage a PaaS to do just that by letting the platform take responsibility for the other parts of the application. I will also show how the same mechanisms enable an organization to enforce policy through the platform’s automation rather than time-consuming manual processes. Believe it or not, the easiest and fastest way to get an app up and running and in compliance with IT is to give them tools to enforce policy!

Composing Asynchronous Operations Using TPL Dataflow

Applications that perform multiple asynchronous operations have, for too long, entailed writing a lot of error-prone code that is difficult to debug. Development gets even more complicated when synchronizing asynchronous operations is required. Even for developers experienced in threading, the amount of time and effort involved can be daunting. The Task Parallel Library (TPL) introduced in .NET 4 greatly simplifies the plumbing necessary to create and manage asynchronous operations, and the Dataflow library provides a set of components that utilize the TPL and make it easier to compose complex asynchronous applications with a lot less code and debugging. In this talk, we introduce TPL and Dataflow and show the benefits of using Dataflow over the primitives in TPL when composing multiple asynchronous operations.

Getting up and running with Selenium for Automated Web Testing

Testing is all about building confidence, and as everything is moving beyond continuous integration towards continuous delivery, it’s even more important to have confidence in what you release. Whether you’re doing continuous delivery or not, if you’re deploying web applications then you want to know that what you deployed is up and running, and will STAY that way. This session will get you started using Selenium and NUnit and show you how, with only a few small files, you can be up and running and building your confidence in application releases. And if you’re using more than Microsoft tech, good news: the examples will be in C# but Selenium works in Java, Python and Ruby too, and we’ll cover the general principles and patterns you can use in any ecosystem. This session is for developers and test engineers who are interested in automated web application testing, and will give you what you need to start implementing this approach within your organisation with a minimum of battle scars (it’s a lot easier than you think!)

Getting Started with Test Drive Development

Test Driven Development (TDD) has been one of the biggest and most compelling paradigm changes to software development of the past few years. The ability to bake quality into your application as you develop it can change the way you think about software; it effects the way we approach, design and write applications. Test Driven Development is powerful. Yet many developers allow themselves to be intimidated by what they perceive as added complexity. Managers worry that the practice of "test first" will delay development. This presentation will explain the concepts behind TDD, outline the benefits, give you some concrete examples of how to do TDD using the C# language and some advice on how to sell it to your managers.

If you work with SQL Server, either as a developer, Dev/DBA, or accidental DBA, we are all DiBA's! but in order to keep that status and not run into "fire drill" mode, you need to make sure you set the ground to keep on looking good. This session will focus on how to set your Database Server environment in a way that will switch you from reactive to proactive mode. And I will demo its implementation via Policy Based Management.

Simplify Your API: Creating Maintainable and Discoverable Code

Developers don't read documentation, this is a fact. It is also a fact that an API that depends on its documentation to get developers to understand and discover its features is at a huge disadvantage in the marketplace. Fortunately, there are some simple, easy-to-use mechanisms for wrapping complex APIs and making their functionality both easy to use, and highly discoverable. Imagine being able to use tools like IntelliSense that the Visual Studio IDE already provides as a way to expose the functionality of your service or library. In this session we will build a fluent Domain Specific Language interface over an existing API to create an interface that is easy to use and discoverable through IntelliSense.
