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 Minneapolis for a great day together!

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