What we're about

This is the Melbourne chapter of The Australian Alt.Net Community.

We meet on the last Tuesday of every month at 6pm.

The Australian Alt.Net Community is a self-organizing, ad-hoc community of developers bound by a desire to improve ourselves, challenge assumptions, and help each other pursue excellence in the practice of software development, obviously with a strong emphasis on development using the Microsoft.NET platform.

Though the name might suggest otherwise we are not looking for alternatives to Microsoft or .NET, nor are we in any way Anti-Microsoft.

The "Alt" in Alt.Net comes from the fact that we are always looking at alternatives to see if we can learn better ways of doing things, no matter where that alternative might come from, and incorporate it into our practice in the .NET world. So if it's something new from Microsoft, that's great - if it's an approach from the open source world or an alternate language or somewhere else entirely then that's even better!

Durable Functions & Da Real MVP Fishbowl

Deep dive into Azure Durable Functions - Ahmed Elharouny Da Real MVP Fishbowl Deep dive into Azure Durable Functions - Ahmed Elharouny Durable Functions is a very powerful extension to Azure Functions, providing stateful orchestration to address many application patterns, allowing developers to focus more on business value rather than infrastructure components. If you have learnt about Azure Functions and ever wondered how different functions can communicate with each other reliably given the nature of a serveless environment, this talk is for you. If you used Azure functions before and felt that most of your effort is spent in avoidable coordination between functions using queues, messages and tables and all the plumbing around that and hoping there is a better way, this talk is for you. Are you already excited about Durable Functions as much as I am and want to avoid some very common pitfalls along your way? This talk is defiantly for you! This talk expects some prior basic understanding of Azure Functions although I promise that even newbies will find thoughts discussed interesting. Da Real MVP Fishbowl Another open fishbowl discussion https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fishbowl_(conversation) conversations. This month we will talk about people's experience deciding how to build MVPs. What should an MVP look like? Worried about sacrificing good tech in the name of getting product to market? What is the best way to learn quickly without incurring tech debt? I'm looking for peoples view on exactly what would be good to cover in this topic. Send them to me @pjimmy and I will use them to facilitate the talk.
