The top ten talks at NDC 2017

NDC 2017 is right about to take off, and as usual it’s jam-packed with talks and presentations. It’s not always easy to know which ones to attend and which ones to skip. That’s why we’ve put together this list of ten probable standouts at this year’s conference.

1. What’s new in ASP .NET Core 2.0?

You’re going to be hearing a lot about the new .NET Core, and this is a great introduction. David Fowler and Damian Edwards, principal software architect and principal program manager, respectively, will guide you through all the new features and improvements of the new version.


2. What is .NET Standard?

Adam Ralph, software developer and open source advocate, gives an introduction to .NET Standard – one of the many technologies to emerge from the mass of open source .NET initiatives. It’s a set of APIs that unified the fragmented .NET platforms.


3. ASP.NET Core for Angular, React and Knockout developers

If you’re a developer building rich Single Page Apps with the frameworks mentioned in the talk title, this is for you. Steve Sanderson, a developer on the ASP.NET team, will demonstrate a bunch of new features live on stage.


4. Cleaning the sewage out of your DevOps pipeline

Damien Brady of Octopus Deploy lends a sympathetic ear to anyone with a manager who presents DevOps as the buzzword solution to everything, without really understanding when it works or not. This talk is focused on what the most common buildups of “sewage” are, how to solve them, and how to analyze your DevOps process for maximum efficiency.


5. State of the .NET performance

Adam Sitnik, self-styled performance and reliability geek, takes you on a guided tour of the main performance changes in .NET Core and C#7, as well as the new tools .ref returns & locals, ArrayPool, ValueTasks and Spans.

6. GDPR is coming, are you prepared?

May 25th 2018 marks the date GDPR comes into effect – the EU directive for data protection. Karoline Klever, one of seven expert developers on a group gathered by Datatilsynet to prepare a plan for GDPR compliance, will take you through what you need to know. Learn how to deal with it easily so you don’t have to pay a 4% turnover size fine.


7. The blockchain: what, why and how

Hans Peeters (software engineer) and Benny Michielsen (IT-consultant), are ready to share what you should know about the very hot topic of blockchains. Originally developed for Bitcoin, it’s also used to keep the Nasdaq and Microsoft Azure secure.


8. Something something cyber

Sporting the uncontested greatest title of the conference, Troy Hunt, internet security specialist, will speak about the state of cyber security, evil cyber hackers [sic], and the tangled web of vulnerable code and ill-equipped organizations that combine to form major security risks.


9. Implementing authorization in web applications and APIs

Every application is different, and while authentication may be easy, authorization is a whole other challenge. Brock Allen and Dominick Baier are independent specialists, who’ll go through some approaches and pitfalls when developing secure authorization for your application, using the ASP.Net Core authorization API as an example.

10. Security in ASP.NET Core 2.0

Barry Dorrans of Microsoft is going to present the new security measures in ASP.NET Core 2.0. More importantly, it’s a chance to see this guy on stage. Expect it to be a lot funnier than you’d think from the unsuspecting title.
