Leveraging latest web development technologies in your Azure apps - Johanna H.

May 18, 2017 · Glen Allen, United States of America

The web development landscape can be confusing these days. You feel your old MVC C# .Net application is becoming dated and want to upgrade to something better, but you don't know where to start. What framework to use - Angular, ReactJs, or something else? Should you use grunt, gulp, bower, or npm for js package management? Why is everyone talking about functional programming these days? And javascript looks so different now... what is up with all those new features in ES6?

In this interactive session, we will build a modern single-page app together - using ReactJs with a .Net/C# back end - with a special focus on tooling, tips, and tricks to make web development faster and easier. Then we leverage the convenience of Azure web apps for push-button deployment to the cloud. 

As a one-hour talk can't possibly cover all topics of modern web development, we'll focus on ways to get you started, with a special focus on moving from a traditional server-side MVC web app to a javascript SPA (single-page app). Hopefully, a lively discussion will ensue where everyone is welcome to ask questions and share experiences.

Johanna Hendrix is a senior developer for Synergy Technical, helping clients leverage Microsoft's range of Azure products. With an extensive background in .Net, SQL Server, and front end development, she is especially passionate about enabling rapid application development by integrating today's powerful open source tools and approaches into traditional technology stacks.

Lunch and beverages will be served. If you have questions, please call Cathy Redford at Synergy Technical[masked]-7629. Please RSVP today!
