OVERVIEW:
Starting a new project, especially a green-field project, is like heaven for software engineers. A clean slate.

But how DO we start a new project? What needs to be in place, and what can be done later?
Here are a few points to ponder:
* Finding the right people — attitude or aptitude?
* Roles and Responsibilities?
* CI/CD — from day 1 or an afterthought?
* Microservices — start with them or refactor later?
* Process?
* Testing?
* Cloud?
* Security?
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In this session, presenter Christian Hujer will showcase how some of the above points were addressed in a real world, greenfield project with the following stack -
* Frontend: React (Web) and React Native (Mobile),
* Backend: Golang and Java,
* DB: Cosmos DB and MongoDB,
* Cloud & DevOps: Azure,
* Webservices: mostly REST but some third parties addressed in SOAP as well

He will also share some War Reports from the same.
War Reports like:
* Golang vs Java — Can the new kid on the block challenge the enterprise tank?
* what works well, what doesn't work, and potential pitfalls with a new project on Azure DevOps and Azure.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
PRE-REQUISITIES:
Participants should have a general experience in software development projects. Experience in today's common n-tier architectures (frontend-backend-database, MVC-style backend) is helpful. Experience in Golang or Java or Azure is NOT required.
