Track: The Amazing Potential of .NET Open Source
Day of week:
When dinosaurs roamed the Earth, many of them were .NET developers who all drank from the same water hole supplied by Microsoft. Then the open source comet hit and the OSS explosion began. The open source mindset of transparency and community involvement not only rippled through the community, but Microsoft itself, a behemoth, was transformed. In this track, we'll learn some of the ways that Microsoft has been transformed by open source and how that's unleashed its potential for innovation. But more importantly, we'll learn how the transformative power of open source has invigorated the .NET open source community to build out a strong ecosystem.

Principal Software Engineer @Microsoft focused on High-Performance .NET
.NET is a strong platform for developing applications of all types, and while it makes it easy to quickly write code, it also makes it easy to write poorly performing code if you don't understand detailed CLR behavior characteristics. As your performance expectations rise, so too must your willingness to dive into the system to understand it. This talk will give you a deep-dive introduction to what you need to know to squeeze out the ultimate performance from your .NET code, along with war...

Developer on GitHub Desktop and Reactive Extensions Enthusiast
Reactive this, reactive that. Building responsive and predictable GUI applications is what we strive for, and reactive programming is the new trendy way to achieve that. But if you think about it, almost everything we program today can be given the description of reactive programming. We react to user input by changing our application state. The presence of state, and state that changes over time, has important implications for our application architecture. It complicates things enormously....

Software Solutions Architect
Machine learning is gaining momentum with the increase of necessity to understand data much more efficiently, to predict better for competitive profit and research. In this talk we'll run over various machine learning algorithms available in the Accord.NET - a framework for machine learning and scientific computing in .NET. We'll also have a look at sample types of problems to see how we can apply machine learning algorithms using Accord.NET framework with F# functional approach.

Language Designer @Microsoft
C# 7 is being designed in the open, with eager community participation on GitHub and elsewhere. We are still early in the design cycle, but some themes and features are emerging. In this talk, Lucian will discuss the design process and the language features that are taking shape, and you are invited to participate with ideas, questions and concerns.
