On October 4 and 5 the Techdays Netherlands were held in the RAI Amsterdam. I had the honor to be invited to speak (the 6th year in row). All sessions were recorded and published to Channel 9
Continuous Delivery 3.0 – The Next Step
Digital disruption is happening all around us. And in order to deal with that, you need to digitally transform your organization, your processes and tools. The introduction of Agile and Scrum for development teams meant a radical change in the way that software was developed. The bottleneck of delivering software on time and budget was no longer caused by the software development teams but shifted towards software delivery. Being able to ship the done increment on demand was the next big step. Many companies are already busy with implementing Continuous Delivery but in many cases it is only sub-optimization of the process and tools that are already in place. But is this the way to really make the difference?
Continuous Delivery 3.0 means a different look at your ALM process and software development. Re-inventing your software development process and using state-of-the-art tooling and technology to make this happen. This means the use of Distributed Version Control, Continuous Integration done right, Release pipelines, Automated Testing and the use of Container technology like Docker to enable this In this session we will talk about how you can create an application for the next generation. We will create an ASP.NET application and will be using Docker and VSTS to deliver this application in a fully automated way. Get ready from some action!
How Docker and ASP.Net Core will change the life of a Microsoft Developer
Times are changing! Using ASP.NET, SQL and HTML running on a Windows machine is not the only solution anymore. The application stack is shifting to ASP.NET Core, a cross-platform .NET Solution that runs on Macs, Linux and Windows. On the platform side of things we are moving from full operating systems and Virtual Machines to container-based platforms. In a world where companies want to change to Continuous Delivery and DevOps, the combination of these technologies is a strong one. The ability to move seamlessly to production, run your website on every platform and to have integrated pipelines is a pre-condition for a winning IT solution and being a differentiator in the market. In this talk Alex and Rene will introduce you to ASP.NET Core, containers and Docker. They will show you how the combination of ASP.NET Core and Containers will radically change software architecture and how this combination will fit into the software factory by leveraging their power in both developer workflow as in the release pipeline.
