The past few weeks I was honored to be accepted at two European developer conferences: Techorama in Belgium and NDC in Norway. Both conferences were amazing, and I’m really hoping the organizers have me back again next year.
Over the span of both conferences I gave four presentations. I received lots of positive feedback about them, which I was really happy about. Most of them were recorded, and their video’s are now available online. Here’s there titles, abstracts, links to slides and any demo code and videos:
GitHub, as instrumental as it is, knows that they cannot possibly offer a one-size-fits-all service that meets the needs to every OSS project. With that in mind, come join Nik Molnar, co-founder of Glimpse, for a session on how to extend GitHub by leveraging their API’s, cutting edge web technologies and free/open source tools to provide users, contributors and project maintainers with a better overall experience.
This session is not about Git itself and is suitable for OSS project maintainers and all users of GitHub.
Techorama did not record their sessions, but there is a slightly outdated recording of this session online from MonkeySpace last year.
Microsoft’s premier cloud solution for custom web applications, Windows Azure Web Sites, has brought the DevOps movement to millions of developers and revolutionized the way that servers are provisioned and applications deployed.
Included with all the headline functionality are many smaller, less-known or undocumented features that serve to greatly improve developer productivity. Join Microsoft MVP and veteran web developer Nik Molnar for a whirlwind tour of these secret features and enhance your cloud development experience.
This beginner session is suitable for developers both using and curious about WAWS.
Full Stack Web Performance (Both)
Modern users expect more than ever from web applications. Unfortunately, they are also consuming applications more frequently from low bandwidth and low power devices – which strains developers not only to nail the user experience, but also the application’s performance.
Join Nik Molnar, co-founder of the open source debugging and diagnostics tool Glimpse, for an example-driven look at strategies and techniques for improving the performance of your web application all the way from the browser to the server.
We’ll cover how to use client and server side profiling tools to pinpoint opportunities for improvement, solutions to the most common performance problems, and some suggestions for getting ahead of the curve and actually surpassing user’s expectations.
This session covers a wide array of topics, most of which would be classified within the 200 level.
If you have any thoughts or feedback on any of the sessions – please leave a comment! I’m always try to make my sessions better.
