14.00 Keynote - The Development Platform Landscape in 2017 by Carl Franklin and Richard Campbell

Join Carl Franklin ( and Richard Campbell ( as they take you on a tour of the broad range of subjects they've explored recording more than 1400 episodes of .NET Rocks over the past 10+ years. The development world today is evolving rapidly, but a look at the history of development can help inform the path we're on and where we're going. Along the way you'll hear some great stories from the various .NET Rocks episodes and get some ideas of how you can take your career and your company into the future of technology.

15.15 Guest Speaker - Functional Architecture: the Pits of Success by Mark Seemann
Object-oriented architects and developers have, over the years, learned many hard lessons about successfully designing systems with object-oriented programming. This has led to a plethora of 'best practices' that are painfully passed on from older to younger generations via books, lectures, consulting, blog posts, etc. Many of these 'best practices' must be explicitly taught, because they don't evolve naturally from object-oriented programming.
Surprisingly, many of these hard-won 'best practices' fall naturally into place when applying functional programming. Instead of deliberate design, functional programming forms pits of success where you naturally fall into the same 'best practices' that you have to deliberately work for in object-oriented programming. In this session, you'll learn about a handful of such 'best practices', and how functional programming automatically leads you there, without your explicit effort.

Mark Seemann ( helps programmers make code easier to maintain. His professional interests include functional programming, REST, software architecture, as well as software development in general. Apart from writing a book about Dependency Injection he has also created several Pluralsight courses, and written numerous articles and blog posts about programming. Check out more on Marks blog (
