Mike Melusky – Effective .NET Core Unit Testing with SQLite and Dapper
Dapper is a lightweight object-relational mapping (ORM) .NET framework. Very similar to Microsoft Entity Framework, Dapper is a framework for mapping an object-oriented domain model (C#) to a relational database (such as Microsoft SQL Server.) This session will start with an existing .NET Core application which connects to Microsoft SQL Server (via Dapper using ANSI-standard SQL queries.) We will then build a test project on top of this using xUnit.Net. This session will demonstrate one solution for unit testing your business domain layer using in-memory databases (SQLite will be the focus of this session.)
John Baluka - Understanding the real value of Open Source with nopCommerce
Open Source. Developers hear about it a lot. What should you really look for and why? For example, I choose to study nopCommerce, a .NET eCommerce solution, which has led to some amazing opportunities. nopCommerce has a familiar architecture, a plug-in model, and an active community. This is a fast paced walk-through of the nopCommerce architecture and source code. More importantly, you will discover the many ways to get involved with any other open source software to better your career and life.
