Details

In this session we'll be exploring the LiveShare plugin for Visual Studio to see how it can benefit you or your team. As a group, we'll be diving into a .NET Core application which has a few bugs to iron out. Practicing good communication with the aid of LiveShare, each participant will be able to view the entire project structure and code-base individually (and locally on your own machine), as well as being able to run and debug the application, which is a huge benefit over a typical screen share session.

I am a Software Engineer at Applied Information Sciences (AIS) and relatively new to the game with 3 years of experience in C# and the .NET stack. I am an advocate for Clean Code, Humane Code and other variants of developing software that is structured not only to meet the requirements of the user, but also software that can be read and maintained because the code clearly communicates the intent of the code.
