My random thoughts on software development

Month: September 2017

Join my session about the future of VB.NET!

On Friday, October 13th I will speak about the future of Visual Basic. NET. Microsoft announced earlier this year that they changed their vision on the earlier idea on, what they called, ‘VB and C# Co-evolution’. The plan was – and is actually executed – to give Visual Basic .NET and C# the same language futures. This will change. But what does this mean for Visual Basic .NET developers? How will this affect us? In this session I will discuss these topics. I will talk also about what’s done to make Visual Basic .NET future proof in terms of cross platform development.

Join me in Amsterdam!

OpenHack Amsterdam

OpenHack Amsterdam, 9-11 October 2017

Whether you work for a large enterprise wrestling with the real-world task of migrating existing applications to the cloud, or a startup looking ahead to enterprise scale, containerization and cluster technologies are critical skills for the innovation-minded developer. OpenHack brings together groups of diverse developers to learn how to implement a given scenario on Azure through three days of immersive, structured, hands-on, challenge based hacking.

During OpenHack you will:

  • Choose your desired tooling and technology based on either Kubernetes or Azure Service Fabric paths.
  • Hack on increasingly robust challenges structured to leave you with skills and expertise needed to deploy containers and clusters in your place of work.
  • Network with fellow community members and other professional developers from startups to large enterprises, as well Microsoft Engineering leaders and experts including Gabe Monroy (former Founder & CTO of Deis and Engineering Lead for Azure containers) and Mark Fussell (Engineering Lead for Azure Service Fabric).
  • Get answers to your technology and workplace project questions from Microsoft and community experts.

In addition to the challenge based learning paths, a limited number of 2-hour code-with slots will be made available on a first come, first served basis to work elbow to elbow with Microsoft experts on your own workplace projects

OpenHack is free for registered attendees!

Dependency Injection with Visual Basic.NET – Part 2

For two weeks ago my first post about ‘Dependency Injection with Visual Basic .NET’ was published on MSDN. Today the second post went live. In this post I explain the concept of using Inversion of Control containers from Visual Basic .NET code. I think that using these kind of techniques will make your code more maintainable, extensible and testable. Check it out!

Happy reading!
