Next Conferences 2018

In the next months I’m speaking at conferences in Mainz, Germany and in Ljubljana, Slovenia – taking C# and Blazor with me.


BASTA! in Mainz, Germany

BASTA! Mainz

It looks like I’m a veteran at BASTA! How many times did I speak there? This is such a great event! Basta! is taking place on Sep 24-28th in Mainz, Germany. Mainz is a nice city that’s worthwhile visiting – not only because of the conference.

This time I’m speaking about Reference Semantics with C# and .NET Core:

Reference Semantics with C# and .NET Core

C# 7.x has great enhancements using the ref modifier not only with parameters but also with return types, and local variables. A struct can now be decleared with the ref modifier as well. .NET Core 2.1 includes the new Span type. What this all means, and how it is used with .NET Core is covered in this session.

Thrive in Ljulbljana, Slovenia

In December I’m the first time at the Thrive conference in Slovenia – December 3rd-December, 5th.

Here’s some information on Slovenia. The conference is taking place in the beautiful city Ljubljana, so you probably should extend your stay, not just for the conference.

With the conference, many Microsoft MVPs are speaking there! Great content for developers, SharePoint, Exchange, AI, and more!

I’ll have 2 exciting sessions about C#, and Blazor:

C# 7.x What’s new and what’s coming with C# 8

After C# 7.0 was released, already versions 7.1, 7.2, and 7.3 have been released. The main topics with C# 7 have been tuples and pattern matching, and C# 8 plans non nullable reference types, extensions to pattern matching, ranges, and more. I’m talking about the major features how C# improves.

Blazor – the new Silverlight?

With WebAssembly we’ll see a new generation of Web applications coming – running binary code in the browser. WebAssembly is supported by all modern browsers. WebAssembly is in it’s beginning as MVP (Minimum Valuable Product). With this, it’s already impressive what can be done – using C# code and running .NET libraries in the browser. Here you’ll get an introduction of WebAssembly, and how this technology is used with Blazor – using syntax you know from Razor Pages.

Are you at one of these conferences as well? See you there!

In the meantime, ask for a company training, attend an open course, read my new book, check the source code, have fun in the summer (or winter, depending where you are) and your vacation, and enjoy learning and programming!
Don’t forget taking the Professional C# book with you on your vacation – if you don’t want to carry the extra weight, use the e-book version 🙂
