Machine learning for the real world

11:10AM-12:20PM, AI/Virtual and Augmented Reality - Room TBD

Faced with developing a machine learning application for classifying safety incidents, I spent hours and hours researching articles, courses and medium blogs, but I was frustrated by the commen theme everywhere: an uneccessarily deep two hour primer on advanced statistical theory, and an overly mathematical approach to the different algorithms, but without anything to really help me understand the use cases and the best way to get started. This led me to develop my own toolkit for a simple explanation of machine learning algorthms, how they work, and what they are best used for. Concepts will be explained with a pragmatic approach, for an audience with basic software development skills. No prior knowledge of data science or statistics is necessary.

Developing Great Web APIs Architectures with ASP.NET Core 2.1

11:10AM-12:20PM, ASP .Net/Core 1

You know you have to have a great experience when you develop your apps, right? The greatest experience for your user's centers around their data. That’s why developing a great set of Web APIs is so important. Using ASP.NET Core Web API is a modern cross-platform framework for the modern web. ASP.NET Core Web API can be run on Windows and Linux using all the modern web servers. The secret to it all is knowing how to architect your Web APIs for the best experience. Using the architecture in this talk allows your APIs specifically to work better due to: • Allowing a clear decoupling of the API endpoints, Data Access (Synthetic or Production) and finally the Data Domain classes. • The API Endpoints (Controllers) have no knowledge or responsibility of Data Domain and behind it Data Access • Because of the decoupling and separation of responsibilities testing can be done easily and without issues. • Data Access segments of the architecture can easily be switched out without impacting the Domain or API Endpoints. By using this architecture not only does the development story become easier but your end users get a much more stable API set to consume. The talk will explain and get you started on using these concepts with your ASP.NET Core 2.1 Web API solutions.

Building apps with Azure Search

11:10AM-12:20PM, Azure/Cloud 1 - Room TBD

Search is a core tenet of modern software usability. In this talk I'll show you how highly scalable and feature-rich search engines like Azure Search make certain types of problems very easy to solve. I'll show you why search engines are so good at what they do, and then demonstrate a few small apps that leverage these strengths.

DevOps Architecture Deep Dive: Canary Deployments

11:10AM-12:20PM, Azure/Cloud 2 - Room TBD

Eric walks through the architecture pattern of “canary” deployments—a term coined by Itay Shakury, in a post on deployment patterns. Canary deployments give your organization early detection systems for errors and data on how your system is used. How can a team move from a different deployment pattern into a pattern that allows your organization to test your customer’s reaction to different software? Eric walks through a real world implementation of this scenario using VSTS, .Net, node.js technologies.
