Gael Fraiteur: Under the Hood of PostSharp

PostSharp’s founder and principal engineer goes through the most interesting reasonings, designs and algorithms of PostSharp – and answers any question.

Gael Fraiteur started to work on PostSharp in 2004 and has never stopped. Today, thousands of .NET developers rely on this tool to automate the boring part of their job. In this talk, Gael gives you an engineer-to-engineer guided tour of PostSharp internals, from the high-level architecture to the most interesting low-level details, and explains the reasoning behind them. Gael also chats about the most challenging aspects of running a development tool company. No question will be left unanswered. A unique learning opportunity for any curious .NET developer.

Gael Fraiteur has been passionately programming since childhood; building and selling his first commercial software at age 12. He is Founder and Principal Engineer at PostSharp Technologies based in Prague, Czech Republic. He's on Twitter as https://twitter.com/gfraiteur

Luce Carter: Zero to Mobile Hero - Intro to Xamarin and Azure DevOps

You can be faced with a nightmare of Xcode, Android Studio, Swift, Objective C, Swift and other options. This means not only learning multiple languages and frameworks but also having to support two different codebases for the same application. But Xamarin Native and Xamarin.Forms offer a powerful, cross-platform development solution for .NET developers looking to target smartphones, tablets, TV’s, computers and IoT devices.

In this talk, Luce shares what Xamarin is including Native and Xamarin.Forms for both C# and F#, how to get started creating a simple HelloWorld app from scratch and a more complex example (will involve at least one Azure service including Cognitive Services for facial recognition). Also how to use Visual Studio Team Services for Continuous Integration and some awesome examples of apps written using Xamarin including ones used to save lives!

Luce will take examples from xamarin.com/customers as well as show this demo about how Xamarin was used alongside other technologies to aid with Skin Cancer prediction.

This talk will include slides, demos, code samples, live coding and the audience will walk away feeling like they too can create a mobile app in just a few minutes and carry their work around with them in their pocket or backpack!

Luce Carter is a proudly neurodiverse Microsoft MVP and software developer based in Manchester, England. Follow Luce on Twitter: https://twitter.com/LuceCarter1
