Event Intro

You're trying to build better software, faster. But .NET developers haven't had access to the capabilities necessary to become cloud-native. Until now.

In this one-day bootcamp, learn exactly how to create cloud-native applications with .NET. You'll hear about patterns and anti-patterns, and then put hands on the keyboard to put best practices into action. We’ll talk about .NET Framework, .NET Core, Pivotal Cloud Foundry on Microsoft Azure Cloud, and the exciting new Steeltoe library for microservices. Whether your .NET apps are staying on-premises or moving to a public cloud, these principles will help you build more scalable, resilient, and adaptable systems that drive your competitive advantage.

By the end of the day, you’ll get exposed to what you need for refactoring existing .NET apps, and building entirely new ones in a cloud-native way. Bring your laptop, and join us in New Jersey for a great day together! Breakfast and lunch will be provided for all workshop attendees.

Who should attend: .NET developers with 1+ years of experience writing web-based applications. Pivotal Cloud Foundry experience is not required.

Bring a laptop with …

  • A code IDE or editor for .NET apps (e.g. Visual Studio 2017, Visual Studio Code)

  • CF command line tool installed 


8:30-9:00 AM Arrival and Breakfast
9:00-9:15 AM The need to be good at software. Some brief examples and data points to highlight the growing importance of delivering a compelling software experience.
9:15-10:00 AM Microservices, and decomposing the monolith. A look at what microservices are, and how people start to create a microservices architecture out of a monolithic app.
10:00-10:15 AM What does "cloud-native" mean? Define “cloud-native” and look at key criteria for building apps in a cloudy way.
10:15-10:45 AM Introducing Cloud Foundry. Why run Cloud Foundry on Azure? What role do “platforms” play in a cloud-native environment? We’ll look at Cloud Foundry and its core components.
10:45-11:00 AM Morning Break
11:00-12:30 PM Cloud-Native .NET - A look at frameworks, patterns, anti-patterns, and tools for building .NET apps in a cloud-native way.
12:30-1:00 PM Lunch and short address by Magenic
1:00-4:30 PM
Hands On Labs: Build .NET core apps and run them on Pivotal Application Services for Windows (PASW). Use the Steeltoe framework to implement actuators and cloud connectors to make use of environment variables and app instances. Bind your .NET app to Azure CosmosDB using the Azure Service Broker, to combine the best of PASW and the Azure Cloud.
4:30-4:45 PM Wrap up
