DEVintersection Europe is back in Haarlem with an impressive lineup of Microsoft experts and industry gurus.
Three major strands of the conference are Visual Studio, ASP.NET and Azure, and the interactions and intersections between them, along with AngularJS, html5,architecture and mobile development.
Some of the key sessions on security at the conference are being given by Barry Dorrans, security czar for.NET at Microsoft. His session on Security in the ASP.NET Core World looks at the new authorization stack and different ways to load balance cryptographic keys, while his session on The Code Behind the Vulnerabilities goes beyond SQL injection covering some of the code behind now fixed ASP.NET vulnerabilities.
Other ASP.NET Core sessions include an Introduction to ASP.NET Core by Daniel Roth, Senior Program Manager on the ASP.NET team. He's also giving a Deep Dive into ASP.NET Core MVC.
A really interesting looking keynote, windows and all of the other code , is to be given by Dave Mendlen,Head of Platform Strategy at Microsoft. As he points out, developing for Windows has historically meant writing VB and C# code, and cross platform used to mean running across different versions of the .NET framework. So now what? The keynote asks (and answers) questions such as When should I use Xamarin? What do I do with my old code? and should I be building UWPs?If you want to knowwhat’s under consideration for C# 7 , Kathleen Dollard takes alook at big possibilities, like immutable types, null-nullable reference types, and local functions. For those interested in Azure, Michele Leroux Bustamente shares her Favorite Azure security features.
Among the sessions that caught my eye in the main conference was Brian Noyes talk on Building cross-platform mobile apps with Ionic, Angular and Cordova.
Angular 2 is a major focus of the conference, with several interesting looking sessions, and a keynote by Stephen Fluin, Developer Advocate on the Angular Team at Google titled Angular 2: Released, Greased, And Increased . Other Angular sessions include Angular 2 in 60ish minutes where Google GDE Dan Wahlin, while Hans Larsen's session on Angular Material looks at how this makes it easy to build high quality web apps that work seamlessly across all of your devices. Meanwhile Rob Wormald looks at Angular & RxJS . On a slightly different scale, in Building Large Scale Apps with Angular , Radoslav Kirav shows how you can scale up to an app with hundreds of different components, sharing some experience from building large Angular 2 applications inside Google.
Docker, TypeScript, and Xamarin are other topics covered in depth at the conference, which runs from 14-16 November in Haarlem, The Netherlands.
