The Future of Visual Basic .NET

Last month I did a session on TechDays 2017 in Amsterdam. I talked about the future of Visual Basic .NET. If you missed that session, no problem. You can view it online!

SDN Magazine 133 | Microsoft Cognitive Services

I wrote an article for the SDN Magazine about Microsoft Cognitive Services and you can read it now online. In this article I introduce the Microsoft Cognitive Services and we will work on an example in C#. We will consume the Computer Vision API, in more detail the AnalyzeImage operation. I think it’s very cool stuff!

Slides | Intro to Microsoft Cognitive Services

Last Friday I did a session on the SDN Event in Zeist. I talked about Microsoft Cognitive Services. Microsoft Cognitive Services are a couple of cloud services (API’s) and related SDK’s. It can help to make your software more human, by adding speech or vision capabilities.  I published the slides on SlideShare. If you are interested in viewing them, you can find the link to it here below.

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!

A new .NET community: .NET Oost

I started a new community, named .NET Oost. We will organize meetups in the east of the Netherlands to share knowledge about Microsoft .NET and related technologies. Last week we had our first meetup, where I talked about the basic of SOLID. The audience, mostly students, were very enthousiastic about it. And so was I! If you live in our area, please join our community. It’s free and have a pizza with us!

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!

Cheat-sheet Visual Studio 2017 keyboard shortcuts

I’m the kind developer who loves shortcuts. I think it makes me more productive.  As a fervent user of ReSharper I learned a lot of new shortcuts by forcing myself to learn at least one shortcut a week. ReSharper provides already for years a nice cheat-sheet with al possible and relevant shortcuts. Now you can get one for the plain vanilla Visual Studio environment too!

Training ‘Architecting Distributed Cloud Applications’

If you are interested in building distributed cloud applications, I can recommend you the online training ‘Architecting Distributed Cloud Applications’ by Jeffrey Richter. In this free online course Jeffrey explains many concepts around building distributed cloud applications. It’s not a how-to manual to build these applications, but much focussed on the architecture of building these kind of applications. I think it is a very informative and relevant course.

You can find the training here!
