1. In the eyes of a lot of people, "the stereotypical developer" is an introvert, who spends all of his or her time in front of a computer, communicates poorly, is socially awkward, unreliable, wears esoteric T-shirts and has an addiction to caffeine.

    Of course, this is not (all) true, but as developers our coding skills far outweigh our "soft" skills. So, what do we, as developers, need to do to improve on these skills?
    Mahesh Krishnan, draws upon his years of experience as a developer and consultant to talk about these skills, and what you need to do to get them. He will provide you with tools and tips to help you with your confidence, communication skills, time management skills, how to resolve conflict, etc; and also what you need to do to advance both your technical and leadership skills.

  3. Orleans is the next most popular open source project of the.NET Foundation after CoreCLR/CoreFX/Roslyn. It was created in Microsoft Research and is now developed within Microsoft Studios.

    Orleans has already redefined how modern scalable interactive cloud services and distributed systems should be built by introducing theVirtual Actor model.

    Orleans has been running in production since 2011 powering high throughput cloud services forHalo Reach, Halo 4, Age of Empires, Skype, Azure Monitoring, and several other Microsoft products. It is a bedrock technology for the cloud services ofHalo 5: Guardians. Since the public preview at Build 2014 and going open source in January 2015 Orleans got used by a significant number of customers ranging from small startups to large enterprises. At the same time, it attracted a group of talented engineers from companies around the globe that have formed a vibrantcommunity around the project. The Orleans core team maintains strong ties with Microsoft Research to keep the stream of innovations going.

    Come to hear how you can leverage Orleans today, what's been recently added to it, what new functionality is coming, and about our future plans.

  4. Debugging web sites can be tricky, but tools like Chrome Developer Tools and Fiddler continue to improve.Chrome provides a great client side JavaScript debugging experience. It also shows the live DOM and is often the only way to determine exactly what style rules have been applied in CSS.

    The network tab provides basic details on requests and responses for the page, including the “initiator” column that indicates why the request was made.The tools provide profilers, audits, and the ability to throttle the network connection. It also provides basic emulation of device sizes for web pages. Fiddler can also be extremely helpful when debugging as traffic can be modified manually or programmatically. The auto responder feature can mock particular responses to web requests, or add specific delays for latency. The composer can construct specific requests that are difficult to create with browsers directly. Fiddler is also extremely helpful for capturing and modifying traffic from smartphones, tablets, and non-Windows platforms. Together these free tools make it much easier to troubleshoot problems with today’s complex multi-device web sites.

  5. 2016 is a big year in politics, with the recent Australian federal election, Brexit, and the US presidential race to name a few. Live political debates and interviews are drawing large online audiences. This is hugely powerful for politicians, not only because we're watching them - but also because they can watch us.
    Twitter allows the public to quickly vent a reaction to a debate they're watching, and the Twitter feed during these debates can be a goldmine. The Reactive Extensions (Rx) framework is a powerful tool for working with real-time data, and it gives us some simple ways to see trends and patterns playing out as we watch.

    This talk will look at using Rx with recent election Twitter feeds to draw out bigger pictures of user engagement and hotly discussed issues. From trolls to LOLs, it's a bumpy ride with social media. But there's method in the madness, and these approaches can be applied anywhere you have data on the move.
