What we're about

We're an Amsterdam based user group, with talks and events aimed at .NET developers. If you're a developer from Amsterdam, visiting Amsterdam or live close by Amsterdam, then it would be great to see you at one of our meetups.

This group will hopefully provide a hub for Amsterdam's diverse and thriving developer community to exchange ideas and keep up to date with the latest movements and shifts in software development.

New members from all backgrounds are very welcome. It doesn't matter if you are just started coding or have been coding for years. If you enjoy technology, software development, and would like to socialize with like-minded souls, come along to one of our events.

We are looking forward to seeing you!

Check out our website http://www.dotnet.amsterdam or watch previously recorded meetup presentations on our youtube channel over here https://www.youtube.com/c/techmeetups but don't forget, it is way more fun to attend an actual meetup :-)

We now also have a discord channel for a chat online in between meetups https://discord.gg/JcffD3k

Asynchronous messaging with Rebus and Securing Azure operations

Likewise, it seems most software development teams buy in to the idea, that the Bounded Context concept from Domain-Driven Design is the way to go when deciding on how to slice up the cake. But how are your services/autonomous components/microservices/whatever-you-call-them supposed to communicate, then? For synchronous request/response, we have HTTP, which by now has become ubiquitous – but the landscape is more varied when we need to figure out how to handle the asynchronous part of the communication. Rebus (https://github.com/rebus-org/Rebus) is a .NET-based implementation of several asynchronous messaging patterns, which can abstract message queues and persistence mechanisms away, thus making it easier and less painful to implement the asynchronous part of an architecture. This is what we are going to talk about :) Bio: Mogens (https://twitter.com/mookid8000) is the owner of Rebus.FM (https://rebus.fm), the commercial complement to the open source (and completely free) .NET service bus implementation, Rebus, which he happens to be the author of. He likes to use contemporary databases and vintage architecture principles to build distributed systems in enterprise environments, which he has done for more than 10 years now, primarily within the financial and commodity trading domains. As a member of the core committee of "Aarhus .NET User Group" (https://www.meetup.com/anugdk/) he helps with setting up interesting meet-ups that target more than 1000 members. He is a former Microsoft MVP within the "VS & Dev Tech" Department, but Microsoft didn't think he did enough for open source, so they took that away again. He kept the blue stickers, though! In addition to that, he likes beer a lot, so he founded The Alley Beer Company with the intention of brewing the first really good craft beer of his hometown, Horsens. --- Securing Azure Operations There are a large number of steps you can take to secure cloud workloads, but you have to know which security controls to configure. In this session you’ll learn how to secure Azure IaaS VM workloads, how to set up an Azure perimeter network and jump box architecture, how to monitor and secure Azure networks, how to delegate Azure administrator privileges, and how to get the most out of Azure Security Center, including features such as Microsoft’s cloud-based SIEM and Azure Sentinel. Bio: Orin Thomas (https://twitter.com/orinthomas) is a Principal Cloud Operations Advocate at Microsoft, an MCT, and has a string of Microsoft MCSE and MCITP certifications. He has written more than three dozen books for Microsoft Press on topics including Windows Server, Windows Client, Azure, System Center, Exchange Server, Security, and SQL Server. He is an author at PluralSight and is a candidate in the Doctor of Information Technology program at Charles Sturt University. --- Privacy policy We may photograph or film speakers and attendees for use in online or printed promotions.

Infrastructure as Code: Azure Resource Manager - inside out

18:00 doors open 18:00 - 19:00 Dinner & Drinks 19:00 - 20:00 Infrastructure as Code: Azure Resource Manager - inside out by Henry Been 20:00 - 21:00 You? contact us! 21:00 - 21:45 chat 21:45 doors closing Thanks to Effectory, food will be served at the meetup, with omnivore, vegetarian and vegan options. --- Infrastructure as Code: Azure Resource Manager - inside out In a fast moving software project, the demands that your application poses on it’s infrastructure might change often and drastically. Are you also fed up with having to apply infrastructure changes by hand? Not to worry! In Azure there is the Azure Resource Manager, an unified API for managing all your Azure services in a declarative style. In this session Henry Been will give you the full tour of ARM templates. Starting from scratch, we will explore how you can setup an architecture that is ready for deployment of your application code. We will touch upon syntax, manual deployment, integration with Azure Pipelines and more advanced features as nesting templates, authorizations and policies. Henry Been - DevOps & Azure Architect | Microsoft MVP Henry Been is an independent architect and developer from The Netherlands. He enjoys working with software development teams to create and deliver great software. His interests include the Azure cloud, Agile, DevOps, software architecture and the design and implementation of testable and maintainable software. Next to his work, he is also one of the Microsoft ALM | DevOps Rangers and has been awarded the Microsoft MVP award. Henry tries to share what he's learned with the community at conferences and meet-ups or through his blog henrybeen.nl. You can catch him on Twitter (twitter.com/henry_been/) or LinkedIn (www.linkedin.com/in/henrybeen/) --- Privacy policy We may photograph or film speakers and attendees for use in online or printed promotions.
