ASP.NET’s been around for a number of years and the team’s developed some DOs and DON’Ts. Let’s explore out very best list of DON’Ts that you can apply today at work! Come see Damian Edwards, Senior Program Manager on the ASP.NET team, share internals, secrets and not-so-secrets of the ASP.NET APIs that you should be exploiting and the ones you should be avoiding.
While Machine Learning practitioners routinely use a wide range of tools and languages, C# is conspicuously absent from that arsenal. Is .NET inadequate for Machine Learning? In this talk, I'll argue that it can be a great fit, as long as you use the right language for the job, namely F#.
F# is a functional-first language, with a concise and expressive syntax that will feel familiar to data scientists used to Python or Matlab. It combines the performance and maintainability benefits of statically typed languages, with the flexibility of Type Providers, a unique mechanism that enables seamless consumption of virtually any data source. And as a first-class .NET citizen, it interops smoothly with C#. So if you are interested in a language that can handle both flexible data exploration and the pressure of a real production system, come check out what F# has to offer
Ah, crap. They asked me to be the closing speaker at Webstock. What the hell could I possibly talk about that you haven’t heard from the geniuses speaking before me for two days? What could possibly keep these brilliant minds in the room for one last talk? For a great finalé, it feels like nothing less than the meaning of life would do. Yeah! That’s it! The meaning of life! I may not be great web designer, but I have figured out the meaning of life, and surprisingly, it’s not sappy at all. In fact I think my fellow Webstock nerds will really appreciate it. So there you go. Come to my closing talk, and find out the answer to the ultimate question of life in 22 minutes or less.
Modern applications need to deal with authentication, single sign-on and federation as well as web API access and delegated authorization. Solving both problems required either using a bunch of protocols that often don’t work together really well, or coming up with a proprietary solution. OpenID Connect wants to rectify that situation – it defines an authentication protocol on top of OAuth2 to solve both the authentication as well as the delegated API access problem. Being based on simple HTTP interactions it also allows for true cross-platform. Learn how.
