Welcome to Denver Dev Day, Colorado's premier, local community-organized developer event. With presentation topics ranging from desktop, micro-services, and web development to patterns, the cloud, and soft skills, Denver Dev Day is your awesome, free, day-long resource for developer learning.
Microsoft continues to sponsor Denver Dev Day in 2017 with their killer Denver Tech Center venue, while old and new event sponsors continue to back this good work.
Tell your manager it's time to sharpen the saw. Tell your manager when you get smarter the business gets better. Tell your manager November 17th (it's a Friday) is on your calendar and the whole development team is coming to Denver Dev Day. And, if you are working on neat technology that you could share with other developers in our developer community, step up – let this year be the year you submit a talk to Denver Dev Day.

Ionic is a open source, hybrid framework used to build mobile applications that can work across multiple platforms with a single codebase. Ionic is built top of the amazing Angular 2+ framework. In this session, we will explain what a mobile hybrid app is, how Ionic can be used to build one, and what type of apps are good candidates for Ionic.
Learn Azure by creating a website which utilizes the now free azure resources available to all users past the initial first month. This talk provides an overview and understanding of Azure with a demo of website creation in Visual Studio 2017, VS Code and SQL Server Management Studio. Also if time permits we will delve into the so called Serverless computing topics available to the Azure programmer.
.NET Standard and .NET Core are among the more exciting things to happen to developers over the last decade. There are many reasons to want to take the plunge and delve deep on the latest bits to build apps that can be written and run just about anywhere.
There are many new and different ways of approaching tooling in this new world. Of course, Visual Studio 2017 does a lot of great things, but there are other options as well to complement the tools you already know and use.
Explore your choices and find out if there are ways to improve your workflow and productivity in this exciting new world.
We will give an overview of Mixed Reality and will step through the requirements and tools you will need to develop applications for the Microsoft Holographic framework and the newly released lower cost mixed reality headsets. This is the first of three presentations that cover setup, Unity and Mixed Reality toolkits.
This session will focus on Entity Framework Core against a MySQL database. We will cover scaffolding entities from an existing database, and take a look at the generated code. We will discuss some of the differences between Entity Framework 6 and Entity Framework Core. Lazy and Eager loading will be discussed along with the potential pitfalls. The session is also applicable to SQL Server - we will make a code change to point to a SQL Server database and perform all the same queries. Attendees will also have access to the source code via GitHub.
This session will demonstrate many of the rich capabilities introduced in Windows 10 Fall Creators Update edition that can really take your app experience to the next level.
We will explore cool transitions between applications views, how lighting and materials can change up the look of you app, and how we can co-ordinate a number of animations to achieve remarkable results.
How can predictable states promote engineering excellence, reduce defect risk, and improve testing and feedback loops?
Learn the basics of Unity and develop your first, simple Mixed Reality app. We will step you through creating a Unity project, an overview of Unity's interface, and the development setup to create and deploy a mixed reality application.
Now that Xamarin is a product of Microsoft, we are able to take advantage of true .NET support. Xamarin now supports the .NET Standard which allows your code to be deployed to any platform. We'll focus on using Xamarin Forms for building applications that run on multiple platforms.
This session will go into how one can use SQL syntax trees to:
This session will demonstrate how you can leverage custom Angular Modules in your applications to share and distribute feature modules, service modules, and/or component modules. You modules can be published to NPMJS.COM or you can use them within your local development environment.
The focus of this session is to provide guidance on understanding and using Angular Modules effectively. Whether your an experienced or new Angular developer, it should be your goal to know:
In this session learn about all the potential of various Mixed Reality toolkits in the industry. Learn which ones work with MR and HoloLens. Watch a Demo of Vuforia, MR Toolkit, and OpenCV and learn how to incorporate the toolkits into your applications.
Reactive functional programming techniques are all the rage right now. Especially with frameworks like Angular exposing RxJS as a core feature. ReactiveUI and DynamicData provide a very fun and powerful way to use reactive programming in your .NET applications. ReactiveUI (part of the .NET foundation) provides the MVVM bits and DynamicData gives you some very powerful ways to easily turn your data into event streams. In this session I'll dive into the basics of reactive concepts and demonstrate some great ways to use these two libraries in your applications.
Aggregates are one of the primary modeling patterns used in Domain-Driven Design. We'll take a look how to design aggregates. Document databases are an excellent fit for storing aggregates. We'll take a look at some aggregates in code and an in-depth look at how persistence works with the RavenDB document database. We'll also compare RavenDB to some other popular document databases.
