πŸ‘‰ *Introduction to Splunk for Developers*

How to use log analytics to write more efficient applications and speed up delivery.

Spend less time fixing and more time making! Ever wanted to see how your programs are performing? Easily identify errors? Despite its association as a security tool, Splunk has the potential to be a developer's best friend. And best of all, it can do so for free!

Tom will run a live demo showing how easy it is to get data into Splunk from any application and highlight some of the benefits on offer in doing so. This will include some of his own real-world experiences including:
β€’ Reducing the amount of errors in an application layer by 98%
β€’ Reducing the amount of time looking for specific problems from days to seconds
β€’ Providing valuable analytics around the use of any program
β€’ Identifying issues with performance before applications leave dev

πŸ‘‰ *Blazor - You Want To Run .NET Where?!.*

Blazor and Web Assembly are both relatively new ideas. Or are they? WebAssembly has been around for a lot longer than you might think, and running .NET in the browser isn't a new idea either - who remembers SilverLight?

Jamie will cover a little of the history of front end technologies - going all the way back to the first browser to support CSS, and coming back to the present day - before diving into just what WebAssembly is, and how Blazor, Mono and .NET Core fit in.

he will show off a demo application that he has built using Umbraco Headless, and run all of the code for the application entirely in the browser. he'll also talk about the benefits and pitfalls of running .NET code in your browser.
