<In-Person>[.NET@Night] Modernize my Compute

Needs a location

[Topic: From Core to Containers to Orchestration, Modernize my Compute]
Azure started as a Platform as a Service with Cloud Services, but since it launched has evolved to include several newer and very useful options for compute. Depending on your hosting model and how you do DevOps,
requirements for scalability and availability you have tradeoffs that affect your long term costs and decision. In this session we look at how containerization has altered the landscape and to go from a monolith mindset to microservices requires more than
wishful thinking or a management edict. As the cloud advances we need to understand the tradeoffs between compute options and make smart decisions on what makes the most sense to ensure you can get where you're going.

[Speaker: Mike Benkovich–Explore the Possible!]
A software architect, Azure expert, and former Microsoft evangelist, Mike Benkovich dedicates huge amounts of his time to helping his fellow developers and burgeoning programmers learn about new technologies and platforms. Mike’s website equips developers with tips and resources to help them get to grips with technologies including cloud, data and devices, and he produces online courses covering areas like Azure enterprise development and serverless computing.

<Virtual>[.NET@Noon] Minimal APIs with ASP.NET 6.0

Link visible for attendees

Topic: Minimal APIs with ASP.NET 6.0
With ASP.NET 6.0, there's a 4th coding paradigm joining MVC, WebAPI, and Razor Pages: Minimal APIs. It's a great way to create the lightest weight microservice. But are you trading everything for the small surface? We'll start with a .NET 5 project and build up to a Minimal API looking at a bunch of brand new C# 10 features along the way. Like the other 3, this is not an either/or choice, and when it makes sense, you can be really productive here too.

Speaker: Rob Richardson
