Topic 1: Azure DevOps:

Microsoft recently released Azure DevOps, a set of services that help developers and IT ship software faster, and with higher quality. These services cover planning, source code, builds, deployments, and artifacts. One of the great things about Azure DevOps is that it works great for any app and on any platform regardless of frameworks.

In this session, Callon will provide a hands on workshop guiding you through getting started with Azure Pipelines to build your application. Using continuous integration and deployment processes, you will leave with clear understanding and skills to get your applications up and running quickly in Azure DevOps and see the full benefits that CI/CD can bring to your organization.

Topic 2: EF CORE

Abstract:If you have been working with any ORM, you would know how it can simplify some the mundane tasks from writing repetitive code day in and day out.
Well, EF Core which has been around for over two years now has been getting all the love and attention from every quarter to make this shiny tool ready for prime time.
Let’s take this tool for a spin and discover some its innate capabilities that would leave you flabbergasted.

In this demo-filled session we will also touch upon some of its new features that make EF Core as compelling as it can be!
