But seriously, we’ve got great speakers coming in from around the country to share their knowledge with you. I’m excited about a lot of it but some areas really stand out. For us ASP.NET developers, so much is changing and there is a lot to learn. Now is the time to get up to speed. Here are a just a few of the talks that are sure to help:
Title: A Deep Dive on ASP.NET Core
Presenter: Jeffrey Fritz
Are you considering ASP.NET Core for your next project? In this session, join one of the Microsoft program managers responsible for this new development platform as we take an in-depth look at the new ASP.NET Core platform. We will cover how the new .NET command-line interface enables you to build applications inside and outside of Visual Studio. We’ll look at how to use ASP.NET Core with docker and how you can build re-usable components with NuGet integration. Attendees of this session will have a deeper understanding of the topics they need to deliver more effective and faster applications with ASP.NET Core.
If you don’t know Jeff, you should. For us Philly locals, Jeff is well known as he is one of us. He’s been speaking in our area for years (I’m pretty sure was at his first talk ever) and now he is a Senior Program Manager at Microsoft! Not only that, he’s a great presenter and writer! Yes, this is a great opportunity to get the info from someone who really knows his stuff. We are really lucky to have Jeff with us at TechBash. You can see Jeff’s full bio and view all of the sessions (although the list is still growing) on the TechBash website.
Title: Getting started with Entity Framework Core
Presenter: Jim Wooley
With the cross-platform version of .Net, Microsoft has had to rewrite many of the core components that we have come to depend on. If you include data in your applications, chances are you have used Entity Framework in the past. In this session, you’ll learn how to get started using EF Core and how to handle the changes in this version.
Lucky for us, Jim Wooley is traveling to us from Atlanta. He’s the author of the popular “LINQ in Action” which is an awesome book. He’s also a great, popular presenter at conferences around the country. You can see Jim’s full bio and view all of the sessions (although the list is still growing) on the TechBash website.
Title: A Lap around ASP.NET Core 1.0!
Presenter: Sam Basu
Man, naming products is hard! But change is in the air for ASP.NET developers, as vNext ushers in a new era. Let’s talk – .NET Core | ASP.NET Core 1.0 | Open Source | .NET Frameworks Changes| ASP.NET Runtimes | WebForms | MVC 6 | Cross-Platform Tooling | Omnisharp.NET | Homebrew | Yeoman | CLI with VS Code or Sublime Text | Docker. Join me as we explore all that’s new & shiny. This is one of the best times to be an ASP.NET developer – let me show you why!
Did you read the summary above? Can you see how much there is for us to learn to be ready for ASP.NET Core? Sam Basu is coming in to help us out. Sam Basu is a Developer Advocate at Telerik (now Progress). He’s also a popular speaker and you are sure to learn a lot.
