Come and have a pizza and beer with a bunch of passionate developers as well as great speakers and great topics. Sounds great!
Sponsored by our friends at Cordius.
About the Event:
From Layers to Vertical Slices - Simplify Your Code and Focus on Your Features
We've all experienced that moment when your boss/customer calls you and says;
"This is just a small change, I can't imagine it would take more than half an hour or so"
And your heart sinks because you know what these "small" tweaks actually entail. You have to find the code, which means navigating all the "layers" of your application. If you're lucky, you can locate the relevant ASP.NET controller, but you know that's only the start.
3 hours later, you're knee-deep in your Data Access Layer, desperately trying to figure out where this "small tweak" needs to be made, wondering if it's lunchtime yet.
It doesn't have to be this way!
You can skip a lot of this pain by leveraging the idea of "vertical slices". When you build and architect your application around individual features, magical things start to happen. You always know exactly where to look for the code that makes any given feature tick. You can use tests to be confident your feature actually does what the user/customer wants it to do (imagine that!)
You get to work with (and write) simple code
By day Jon works with the enthusiastic and supportive team at Remote where they build custom software for purpose-driven teams.
The aim is to help their customers make a greater impact with help from the software they can build for them.
By night Jon focuses on helping ASP.NET developers (new and old) via his site.
Most recently he's been exploring the intersection of React.js and ASP.NET Core and learning how to really optimise the process of turning ideas into working software so he can get to the good stuff, spend less time fighting the code and more time working on interesting features.
