27 May 2020: Jon Skeet on Versioning, and how it makes my head hurt

Software engineers use versioning all the time, and .NET is no different. Over the last couple of years, I’ve been thinking a lot about versioning in different contexts, and I wish I could now say I knew how to do it easily. Instead, I can at least share my experiences, highlight some problems, and maybe look at possible improvements to come. We’ll look at:

  • What is a version anyway?
  • Where do we use versions day to day?
  • What do we mean by semantic versioning?
  • What are the patterns for server-side API versioning?
  • What are the highlights and lowlights of .NET’s support for versioning?

About Jon Skeet

Jon Skeet is a Staff Developer Platform Engineer at Google, working on Google Cloud Platform client libraries for .NET, based in the London office. (That’s the theory, anyway. Most of the time he works from his shed instead.) He’s best known for contributions to Stack Overflow as well as his book, C# in Depth. Additionally he is the primary maintainer of the Noda Time date/time library for .NET.
Outside of software, Jon is a committed Christian, and enjoys theatre (particularly musical theatre), playing board games, and spending time with his amazing family.

19 February 2020: Tom Kerkhove on Building Multi-tenant PaaS on Azure

Building a multi-tenant PaaS is not a walk in the part, certainly if the platform you are building on is constantly changing.

In this session I’ll walk you through the adventure we’ve been on where you’ll learn about the challenges we’ve had and how we approached them and whether or not our decisions worked out or not.

– How to design for scale
– How to operate the platform
– How to grow a platform mindset and force ownership
– How to provide user-friendly webhooks
– How to roll out changes
– How to design for multi-tenancy
– How to approach constant change
– etc

Cloud platforms are never finished so you’d better come prepared.

Azure Architect at Codit, Microsoft Azure MVP & Advisor

Tom works for Codit as an Azure Architect, is a member of the AZUG crew and has been a Microsoft Azure MVP & Azure Advisor since 2014. You can see Tom around on GitHub maintaining Promitor & Azure Deprecation or contributing to projects like KEDA & Arcus.

He turns coffee into scalable & secure cloud systems and writes about his adventures on blog.tomkerkhove.be.

2 December 2019: Mathias Verraes on Temporal Analysis Patterns

When we design software for a complex domain, it helps to have a deep understanding of that domain, and reflect it in the system’s model. That’s the central premise of DDD. Many interesting business domains are temporal; they involve many interconnected processes and behaviours happening over time.

This is where traditional ways of understanding our domains fall short: they look at the artifacts of those processes, but not enough at the processes themselves.

Temporal analysis patterns help us see recurring patterns in how the processes in our domains work and are organised. The insights well get from applying the patterns, show us how to choose objects, components, and services. This leads to better decoupled systems, both internally and at the level of integrations.

This talk starts at 20:00 and lasts 1 hour.

RSVP

Please notify us of your presence on meetup.com.

About Matthias Verraes

Mathias Verraes advises organisations on designing and modelling software for complex environments, including architecture, analysis, testing, and refactoring “unmaintainable” systems. He has worked with clients in Government, Logistics, Mobility, Energy, E-Commerce, and more.

He teaches Domain-Driven Design courses and curates the DDD Europe conference. When he’s at home in Kortrijk, Belgium, he helps his two sons build crazy Lego contraptions.

monday 30 September 2019 – If at first you don’t succeed with Event Sourcing – Yves Reynhout

As more teams / software developers start out with event sourcing, they are confronted with fairly common problems, hindering their ability to deliver, causing technical paralysis. This talk is a gentle introduction to event sourcing and takes a practical and pattern like approach towards addressing those problems. Walk away with a better understanding ….

The talk can be in English. If there are only Dutch-speaking attendees, we will probably do it in Dutch.

RSVP

Please notify us of your presence on meetup.com.

About Yves Reynhout

Yves is a passionate software developer with a broad range of experience and interests, passionate about technology, and has a constant urge to learn and improve his skills.

His work exists primarily in building mobile, cloud and native, multi-user products, with features that can scale, like allowing a high degree of configurability by the end-users, buliding in authentication and authorization, printing, reporting, aggregating and distilling information. Also integration with third parties, services and devices, making use of both messaging and RPC.

He analyses, designs, documents, implements models to automate business processes, designs solutions that multiple teams can work on, writes automated test specifications on unit, integration, scenario and UI level, writes code for every layer in the stack, automates deployment of software through scripts and infrastructure as code, and is also involved in the operational side of running software (like monitoring, logging, tracing, diagnostics). All to meet the customer’s needs.
