Op donderdag 18 mei, ja weer de derde donderdag i.v.m. hemelvaart, zijn we te gast bij Coolblue in Rotterdam. Ook deze keer hebben we weer twee sessies gepland.
The program of the evening is as follow:
18:00 Walk-in & food
19:00 Welcome & introduction
19:10 Resilience of systems - Sander van Vliet, Pathfinder @ Coolblue
Moving away from monolithic applications that either work or not, nowadays systems are much more diverse and divided over many services and components. These components introduce new boundaries and possibilities for failure making it harder to determine if the overall system works.. or not.
Although the potential for failure increases, so does the opportunity to become more resilient and keep the system running even if parts of the system fail.
In this session we will take a look at failure modes in monolithic and distributed systems and how we can transform a distributed system to be more resilient if dependencies start to break down.
20:00 Create connected mobile Xamarin apps - the right ( and lazy ) way! - Glenn Versweyveld
Most mobile apps rely on an internet connection to get hold of their data. But by doing so, a lot of issues can arrise while trying and in the process the app still needs to feel fast and usable to the end user.
In this session, we will show you how you can set up a robust connected app with a minimum of effort in Xamarin forms. We will target a remote REST service and incorporate the data in our app, presenting it to the user. This will involve heavy use of several nuget packages, that will help us in getting an optimal user experience.
We will look at REFIT to easily map out the REST service calls, use Akavache to enable a local disk cache, integrate Polly for some retry mechanisms and rely on PRISM for a nice MVVM flow. So everything a seasoned Xamarin forms developer needs to know to get a production ready connected app.
