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.

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.
