I was lucky enough to be asked to present at NDC Sydney – probably the best conference I have ever been to.
You can check out our session here.
Angular 2 War Stories – We’re bringing the front line to you !
Angular 2 is awesome. Performance, Mobile friendly, Flexible. Sweet ! Happy Users, Happy Developers, Happy Business. Awesome! …. but there are so many options, and so many unanswered questions.
This session will de-mystify Angular 2 and show you the pitfalls to avoid when building Angular 2 in production. Come see how we are doing it now on large enterprise applications.
http://tv.ssw.com/6628/asp-net-5-de-b… The change from ASP.NET 4 to ASP.NET 5 brings a whole lot of awesome to web development, but it’s the biggest change since MVC was introduced and the learning curve is massive.
SSW shipped 2 enterprise apps on ASP.NET 5 while it was still in Beta (wow, that hurt).
Don’t spend weeks trying to understand how to get your new project right.
This session isn’t just ‘hello world’, it’s the stuff we wish we’d known in those first head-scratching weeks.
ASP.NET 5 (formerly known as ASP.NET vNext), along with .NET Core, is Microsoft’s ground-up rewrite of the .NET Framework. It is designed specifically for modern cross-platform web-application development and involves a number of breaking changes and new concepts that the .NET developer will need to be aware of.
I get asked a lot about the secret to the success of FireBootCamp, and how we get such great results from our intense developer training.
The SSW.TV team kindly put together this collection of behind-the-scenes footage.
If you want to see more of the actual bootcampers in action during sprints 1 and 2 check out the following (more serious) videos
And here are the highlights from graduation day
FireBootCamp has been an amazing experience.
After 9 weeks of intense training, the FireBootCampers present the solutions that they built during the course, celebrate their successes with a glass of Champagne and mingle with potential employers.
Sprint 1 was great, but now the guys are really getting going.
Check out their progress in Sprint 2.
Week 1 at FireBootCamp has been amazing.
The teams have been thrown in the deep end, but they are loving it.
They are really getting into learning MVC and Scrum. They especially loved having Andrew Coates from Microsoft as a guest mentor to introduce them to Windows Azure, TFS and Continuous Deployment.
In this video I chat to Michael Crump about his experiences developing for Windows Phone 8.
I caught up with Dino Esposito, Technical Evangelist at JetBrains, to discuss the lessons learnt building mobile apps and sites.
Many of today’s users are on the web via mobile devices, yet too many web sites are neither optimized nor adapted to render on multiple devices. Too many developers think a little CSS magic will do the trick.
Responsive Web Design (RWD) delivers multi-device views without extra costs, but what if you have workflows to implement or different use-cases?
This video session with Dino looks at a few real examples where RWD is not enough and server-side detection is necessary.
I was joined by Windows Phone Developer Evangelist Dave Glover from Microsoft to talk about Windows Phone 8 development.
We chat about how far Windows Phone has come since the release of Windows Phone 7, how it is tracking against its competitors, where it fits into the market, and the opportunities for developers in the Windows Phone Marketplace.
In this video, we discuss:
– The range of hardware running the platform
– Key apps for the platform
– How it’s easier to build apps for Windows Phone than any other platform
– What’s new in Windows Phone 8
– How to get your app noticed on the Marketplace
