Next-Gen Design of Software Applications Dino Esposito
The era of CRUD and tiers is gone. While still applicable this vision of the software gets more obsolete every day. Software is pervasive and aims at taking 100% of our lives; no way we could afford planning and designing software the way we did it for at least the last two decades. What’s new then? Here’s a list of crucial keywords: events, micro-services, business processes, domain modeling. In this workshop we’ll explore events and the silent revolution events and commands are bringing in software. We’ll talk Event Sourcing, persistence, CQRS and frameworks and we’ll go through an exercise aimed at building a To-do application with a new event-based framework.
The workshop is about software design but targets the .NET stack. Participants, therefore, should be familiar with C# and .NET.

Today’s computers are made of chips and chips are, in turn, made of many millions of transistors that can store data or can be used to process code. Transistors are like neurons in the human brain and the concrete representation of 0/1 bit. Imagine now a computing scenario in which every single bit is not simply 0 or 1 but it can be 0 or 1 or both 0 and 1, or any number of values in between. In addition, imagine this weird bit is also able of being in multiple states at the same time! Welcome to the dazzling and daunting new world of quantum computing. The session will try to explain the difference between conventional and quantum computing, the theoretical origins of quantum computing and the challenges it might be able to tackle in the near future. In doing so, we also try to play with quantum algorithms, intractable problems and, why not, Visual Studio extensions for quantum computing.
Web services are typically stateless entities, that need to operate at scale at large. Functional paradigm can be used to model these web services work and offer several benefits like scalability, productivity, and correctness.
This talk describes how to implement Event-Driven Microservices with examples in F#. It explains how to use Domain Driven to design Microservices. Using Algebraic Data Types, the domain model can be captured as code eliminating the need for separate documentation.
It introduces event-driven architecture, where every external action generates an event that the system responds to. Events act as the notification messages for any significant change in state and may generate other event(s) as services invoke each other. They are immutable by nature.
The objective of the talk is show how to create a scalable & highly distributed web service in F#, and demonstrate how various characteristics of functional paradigm capture the behavior of such services architecture very naturally.
Avalonia is a cross-platform UI framework which allows you to write your UI once and run it everywhere while providing first-class support for MVVM pattern, data bindings, data templates and lookless controls. It supports desktop .NET, .NET Core, Mono on Windows/Linux/OSX and has experimental support for mobile platforms. The talk is about the motivation behind the framework, the key goals, main features and internal architecture details. It will show you how to create a .NET UI application that will look and work exactly the same way across the platforms and how to package it.
We'll talk about debuggers for mono applications, mono embedded libraries, unsafe code/marshalling and we'll write scripts for the automatization of debugging process.
On one of my latest projects we had to make our system scale to bring down the processing time drastically to meet the expectations.
Just bringing it to the cloud didn’t improve the system (it actually slowed us down). So we build a new architecture from the ground up, based on microservices with the actor model.
Interested to see how we made our system process large sets of data in days instead of months? Without breaking the bank on spinning up a lot of servers?
Then this is a must see session!
A lot of work should be done before actual development could start. Conceptual models, different views on system – everything should be aligned with business requirement, but how to get confidence that implementation reflects architectural and design intentions? Code review is good approach, but it is time consuming, maybe something can be automatized? In my presentation I’m going to show you what can you do to save some time and not reinvent the wheel from the very beginning. And it’s not about simple code forms, that can be checked by StyleCop.
