We are thrilled to have with us Aaron Stannard with two great topics:
18:00 NBench: Automated Performance Testing for .NET
NBench is a Cross-platform performance benchmarking and testing framework for .NET applications. It's designed for .NET developers who need to care about performance and want the ability to "unit test" their application's performance just like XUnit or NUnit tests their application code.
In this presentation, Aaron Stannard will highlight core features of NBench and how you can utilize the tool to measure and improve your applications performance.
19:00 Pizza break
19:30 Enterprise Grade Continuous Delivery for .NET Developers
The Akka.NET team shipped Akka.Cluster out of beta last year, and it took two years of hard work across team members working all over the world. Akka.Cluster is the bedrock of distributed systems built using Akka.NET, and it is depended upon by banks, oil & gas, healthcare companies, e-commerce, and scores of other massive businesses. It has to be SOLID.
So in the process of building it the Akka.NET team developed one of the most robust, aggressive, and thorough QA processes in the .NET community in order to validate it. This talk describes how to build automated tests, benchmarks, multi-system tests, model-based tests, and everything else a .NET developer might need to build and test mission-critical / performance-sensitive distributed systems.
