  • New CraftyCoders Meetup! - DevOps
    This meetup will take place on Tuesday May 15th, and will be about DevOps and Docker. Pizza and drinks readily available. Don't miss out! Agenda Drinks on Arrival Welcome and Introduction Part 1 of Docker and AKS for the ASP.NET Core Developer - Marco De Sanctis Pizza and Refreshments Part 2 of Docker and AKS for the ASP.NET Core Developer - Marco De Sanctis ASP.NET Core loves Docker: from 0 to Azure in one meetup: Should I care about Docker if I'm a developer? What are the advantages and how can it make my life easier? How painful is to port an existing application to Docker and get it to production? These are some of the questions we promise to answer during this talk, demonstrating how seamlessly Docker can plug in your development experience. We'll start from the very basics of Docker, so you will have no problems on following it even if you've never used it before. Then we'll see how we can containerise a non-trivial existing ASP.NET Core solution and have it running on Linux, thanks to the support of Visual Studio 2017. After executing it locally on our machine. we'll explore which options we have in order to run it on the cloud, we'll set up a CI/CD pipeline on Visual Studio Team Services and we'll deploy it to AKS (managed Kubernetes) in Azure. Code of Conduct Our meetings are dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices. We do not tolerate harassment of meeting participants in any form.

  • ES6 Hands On Session - Mostly the bits we can use now!
    Venue August's meetup will be an ES6 (Javascript) hands on session and will be at Purplebricks HQ in Shirley, Solihull. Parking You will be able to park on the streets around the business park. You may need to walk a short distance to the Canmore Place office building from where you park. Directions Google Maps Pin (https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/Cranmore+Place,+Cranmore+Dr,+Shirley,+Solihull+B90+4RZ/@52.4006588,-1.8086957,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x4870b9b0a9816d91:0x1b8f97171881f036!8m2!3d52.4006588!4d-1.806507) The event will be held in the 1st floor of the Purplebricks head office. Schedule 6.30pm - Arrive and network over Pizza 7:00pm - Begin the session You don't have to bring a laptop, but it will help if you do. We'll first have a brief talk about what ES6 means for the web and for us as web developers, and how we can leverage features of it now to make Javascript suck that little bit less. We will then dive into the handson and write some Javascript that uses some of features available to us in ES6. A long the way, we will discuss the practicality and compatibility of using these new features out there in the real world today. If you are bringing a laptop, just about all you will need installed is a text editor and a modern browser or nodejs. If anyone has any experience of using some of the lesser known areas of ES6 in the wild, especially on the server, please shout - it would be good to hear your experiences. If there is a particular area of ES6 that you would like to see covered, please drop a comment in the group! Looking forward to seeing you all!

  • Hybrid Apps and Machine Learning with Martin Kearn from Microsoft
    This event will feature two talks: Hybrid Apps Which is best … apps or web? Why not have both? The lines are getting increasingly blurred between the web and native apps. Operating systems are able to execute JavaScript from a remote web server, web apps are able to reach into your documents and fiddle around with them, you can wrap your website with rich, native functionality. In this talk we'll look at the murky and confusing world of hosted hybrid web apps. We'll look at the different tools available for creating hosted hybrid apps on multiple platforms. We'll look at where hosted hybrid apps work well and where they don't. Machine Learning Artificial Intelligence is the latest hotness. We’ve heard how bots are going to be the new apps allowing natural conversational interfaces. Siri, Cortana and Google Now are no longer a gimmick and are becoming more useful every day. Machine Learning sits behind artificial intelligence and on the surface it may seem like a deeply technical, scientific topic. We are here to tell you that it is more accessible than you think. We’ll look at some of the basics around machine learning. We’ll also look some of the API services that make it very easy to implement artificial intelligence ‘smarts’ into your application with simple, standard REST calls
