The speakers

We all know it is very robust and highly secure to develop applications using the .NET framework. The framework reduces development time, produces performance, stable and scalable applications that ensure complex business applications operate smoothly.

Join us online for two days dedicated to .NET and learn more about the subject from some of the world’s top experts and thought leaders in the field.


These high-end workshops allow you to dive deeper into specific topics related to software development. The masterclasses are taught by experts in the field and offer a more personalized and interactive learning experience. You get to work closely with the instructor and other colleagues in a small-group setting and ask questions and get feedback in real time. Overall, they are a unique and valuable opportunity for anyone looking to expand their knowledge and expertise in software development and IT.

Building intuitive command-line interfaces in .NET

The cross-platform story for .NET continues. More and more tooling uses a command-line interface to make it easy to execute complex tasks from a script or console. Microsoft has invested in this area for their own tooling, such as the dotnet CLI or project Tye. You can benefit from their efforts by using System.CommandLine to build your own CLI or parametrize your application startup with arguments and options. The Microsoft .NET libraries hold a number of great packages to create intuitive CLIs, with commands that have features such as suggestions with tab-completion and typocorrections. In this session you will learn how to implement commands, with arguments and options, and leverage the build-in functionality such as binding, validation, middle-ware, command-hierarchies, parsing and much more. We are going to cover practical examples and use-cases, plus tips and tricks for efficient development and debugging. After this session you can are ready to go and build CLIs for your own .NET applications and tooling with minimal effort.

16:00 – 17:00

Chipping Away at Technical Debt

Maintainability techniques for .NET projects with a tight budget. A case study based on a 13-year-old, ongoing and successful project. The session will be about how to use T4 templates, Entity Framework, creating custom, basic tools, team rules, and architecture in the service of project maintainability.

17:00 – 18:00

Breaking a monolith ERP into separate services using .NET and AWS

In this session you will get to know what are our plans to rewrite parts of an existing ERP solution into smaller, separate services. We will briefly go over some of the .NET technologies we are using and how these are deployed into Amazon Web Services.

18:00 – 19:00

Taming dynamic schemas: a session you wouldn’t expect

If someone says “dynamic schema” a developer would usually immediately think to use a NoSQL database. That was maybe the case years and years ago, but things have change a lot lately. NoSQL and SQL are converging at higher speed at every new release and so it’s about time to review some old habits and ideas to see if they still hold true. How easy is managing dynamic schemas with Azure SQL? Is that possible at all? Or there are some compromises to make? And if that’s possible, will it be fast? Easy to manage? Scalable? In this session we’ll see how Azure SQL has evolved in the last years, with tons of innovations that bring together the best of relational and post-relational features, giving the developer all the needed options to manage and balance agility and consistency, scalability and manageability. Come and see how to use Azure SQL to support even the most complex and demanding backend API, with almost no plumbing code. It will be eyes opening!

15:00 – 16:00

gRPC in.NET – Building high performance interservice communication with gRPC

In microservice architecture and modern distributed systems there is inherent need to develop cross platform, language agnostic, high performance services. In this session we will see why gRPC is the ideal choice of communication between backend services. Also, we will take a look what .NET has to offer to get started with gPRC in developing contract-first APIs using protocol buffer.
