Creating Real-life Serverless Solutions with Azure Functions
Understanding the concept of serverless solutions is the first step. The next step is to create solutions using the technologies available, like Azure Functions and Visual Studio 2017. In this session, I'll show you how to create a serverless solution using Azure Functions for a real-life scenario. This will help you in understanding the power of serverless and gives some insight on how to enable this for your own professional projects. Not only will we develop the functions, but they will also get deployed using the combined power of Visual Studio and Azure.

Turning software into computer chips with Hastlayer - Zoltán Lehóczky
Software is flexible, specialized hardware is extremely fast. So why not write software, then turn it into a computer chip? This is what Hastlayer (https://hastlayer.com (https://hastlayer.com/)) does by transforming .NET software into electronic circuits. The result is faster and uses less power while you simply keep on writing software. You may not be able to tell just by looking at it but behind some function calls now actually embedded hardware is working! (You wonder how? Check out what FPGAs are!) In this demo-packed session we'll get an overview of what Hastlayer is, why it is useful for developers like you and how to write Hastlayer-compatible software.
Co-founder and managing director of Lombiq Technologies (https://lombiq.com (https://lombiq.com/)), originator of the Hastlayer project. His main expertise is in .NET software development and software architecture design.
