Following our continued success of the lightning talks, we are hosting another round! We will be having 6 speakers doing a 10-15 minute lightning talks, if you would like to get involved please message me on meetup or twitter.

A lightning talk is a very short presentation lasting only a few minutes, given at a conference or a similar forum. Several lightning talks will usually be delivered by different speakers in a single session, sometimes called a data blitz.

🔧 Feature Management in .NET
Feature flagging is not a new concept. For decades development teams have utilized this concept by wrapping a section of code with a targeted if/else statement, allowing them to control its release to their end-users. We'll take a look at how we can achieve this in .NET with the upcoming feature management libraries.

🌐 Chrome DevTools Tricks
The Chrome DevTools provide an amazing set of tools to help you develop on the Web platform. Danny Jones will show you a few tips you might not know yet!
