In a series of short sessions back to back, the members of Mississauga .NET User Group will showcase their unique talent on some of the technologies that have not been demonstrated before.

Following is the list of speakers. Each speaker will have up to 15 minutes to make a pitch:

1. Dave van Herten:

Title: Swagger

Abstract: Quick overview of Swagger and Swashbuckle in .NET using a sample WebAPI. Will demonstrate how easy it is to get it up and running and share an example of how I’ve personally used Swagger to great effect.

2. MJ Alwajeeh:

Title: The Power of Videos with Azure Cognitive Services

Abstract: A lot of valuable content in this day and age comes in video format. Video lectures make for a great medium to learn from, yet a lot of their potential is hidden between the start and end boundaries of a video file. This makes them hard to use as a reference while working on projects or when looking for quick answers.

Well, thanks to Azure's suite of cognitive services, this won't be a concern much longer. Azure Cognitive Services make analyzing videos accessible to the masses. From transcribing and translating the audio to identifying the video's various speakers, unleashing the potential of your videos has never been so accessible.

3. Callon Campbell:

Title: Serverless integrations using Azure Logic Apps

Abstract: Azure Logic Apps are built around the idea of events, triggers and workflows. When you think about building microservices, there are a lot of moving parts to manage. Azure Logic Apps lets you stitch them all together much more easily and provides you with a central place to build and manage all of your event-driven services.

I'll cover the following:
• Introduction to Azure Logic Apps
• Demo: Build an Azure Logic application

4. Arlan Nugara:

Title: Is Azure Stack one of the most radical products Microsoft has ever released? You decide!

Abstract: Azure Stack is an extension of Azure, bringing the agility and fast-paced innovation of cloud computing to on-premises environments. Only Azure Stack lets you deliver Azure services from your organization’s datacenter, while balancing the right amount of flexibility and control—for truly-consistent hybrid cloud deployments.

5. Richard Obuhowich:

Title: Why you should know about Columnstore Indexes in SQL Server 2016

Abstract: Aggregate reporting and analysis using relational databases can be very slow for large tables of data. Columnar table storage can make certain types of queries execute much faster. In this session, we'll review when to consider using columnar table storage and when to stick with row storage.

6. Obi Oberoi:

Title: Introduction to Domain Drive Design (DDD)

Abstract: If you are working in a corporate environment where demands of business grow in complexity, DDD is an ideal candidate for its implementation. Make no mistake, DDD is now the lingua franca of enterprise software development where complications and intricacies of the business domain abound.

In this talk, Obi will introduce some of the design principles of DDD while deconstructing some of the core concepts such as Bounded Context, Ubiquitous Language, Value Objects etc. that it hinges on.

7. Jack Lee:

Title: Deep Dive - Automating your CI/CD Pipeline on Azure using VSTS

Abstract: In this talk, Jack will show you how to create a CI/CD Pipeline to automate your build, test, and deployment phases of software development on Azure using Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS).
