The needs to go faster to market and cut costs, dominating the industry lately, are significantly changing the landscape of software quality. Many pillars of successful quality strategies in the past are just slowing down delivery too much. We will have to find better ways to provide build in quality into our systems, track and assure it.Join Gojko Adzic to learn how you can reinvent your approach to software quality and scale delivery processes by engaging business users better, enhancing visibility, collaboration and knowledge transfer. This is a talk for anyone serious about software delivery, regardless of the role in their process.# vimeo.com/43612920 Uploaded 830 Plays 9 Likes 0 Comments

Along the way, Nik will cover the tools and techniques that have proven successful over the past two years developing Glimpse, focusing on technical challenges and best practices for community management, communications and open source/life balance.This session is suitable for founders, maintainers, contributors and all users of open source software and aims to spark conversation around the best way to foster open source and open source etiquette.# vimeo.com/68390481 Uploaded 651 Plays 9 Likes 1 Comment
C# 5 has one big feature... asynchronous functions, aka "async/await". It's ever so exciting, whether you're writing client code which needs to have a responsive UI without turning your code into spaghetti, or server code where you really don't want to start 100,000 threads just because you've got a high traffic web server which needs to perform long-running tasks. In this talk I'll demonstrate what async functions look like, then dive into how they work under the hood. Be warned: once you've used C# 5, all other asynchronous code will look atrocious.
(I'll also demonstrate the other new features of C# 5 - that will take about 5 minutes, at most...)# vimeo.com/68390480 Uploaded 4,048 Plays 25 Likes 0 Comments
Of all the strange new languages gaining popularity today, Clojure, with its roots in the alien world of Lisp, may well be the strangest. It is also, its proponents insist, by far the most powerful. They'll show you weird and incomprehensible proofs of this—macros, lazy lists, monads, what have you—that may well send academics into orgies of rapturous debate, but the question always remains: "does this have any real world application at all, or are you all just geeking out on us?"
Let's find out! In this presentation, you'll learn how to build a simple web app using ClojureScript on the client side and the Noir web framework on the server. You'll see how Clojure can help you tie your client code and your server code together, giving beautiful interoperability and code reuse. We might even have a go at a macro or two outside of the lab.# vimeo.com/43808810 Uploaded 5,210 Plays 32 Likes 0 Comments
Getting tired of adding services via “Add service reference”? Annoyed by the fact that the configurations are so hidden and easy to forget? Wish you could be a little bit more in control of your service channels? Now there is the option to have it all solved, enter Service Stack, giving you the power back but doesn’t set you back to the days of the *.asmx. With Service Stack you get the power of controlling what should be flowing in your application, e.g. no more boxing to ObservableCollection just to push data over the web. This session will show you how easy it can be to regain power of your networking layer, and how little code it actually requires. With Service Stack you don’t actually have to spend much time worrying if you need to support other serializers, most frequent used are in the box. Last but not least, how easy RESTfull services can be.# vimeo.com/43808788 Uploaded 1,147 Plays 5 Likes 0 Comments
