Demo time

Fanie Reynders this week demo’ed JWT. This is short for JSON Web Tokens, an open industry standard RFC 7519 method for representing claims securely between two parties. It shows us how to handle the exchange of tokens in a .NET Core application. A complex subject that for most people is hard to get but by going into the details we presented a complete running example explaining how to use tokens for authentication using JWT technologies.

We hope you like watching our Dutch SDN Casts to catch up in a bit more than an hour on the topics that are hot for this week and hear the latest news and see the great demo’s on technology and software development that you can apply in your real world scenarios.

Demo time

Fanie Reynders this week demo’ed Azure Portal, showing many new options in Azure Portal. Maarten van Stam was updating .NET Core (www.dot.net) 1.0.1 live on the show and shows the new trend, developing JavaScript Desktop applications using Electron (http://electron.atom.io). It’s cross platform to build Desktop Applications. Many large applications already have been in the open already and a good example for that is Microsoft Visual Studio Code. This runs on Windows, Mac and Linux. In the meantime, Marcel Meijer surprised us with a WordPerfect demo. The underwater screen is back from where it came from. So watch the show for a great impression, but you need to speak Dutch😉.

We hope you like watching our Dutch SDN Casts to catch up in a bit more than an hour on the topics that are hot for this week and hear the latest news and see the great demo’s on technology and software development that you can apply in your real world scenarios.

Software News and Events for Week 36 – Windows Wedding Day?

SDN Cast

A day early, today we recorded our Dutch SDN Cast live from our own home locations. Last week we recorded our SDN Cast on location at venue Hotel Oud London in Zeist to introduce our quarterly SDN Event. As usual we discussed the news and events for this week and tried to hook into the Apple Event while we were casting our show.

Just before going live I updated my broadcasting PC to Microsoft Anniversary and due to having a Dutch system I was redirected to an information page explaining I was eligible to install “Microsoft Wedding day” and my machine was ready to install “Microsoft Birthday” edition. An example of how machine translations messed up … The upside is that it was fun to read providing a good laugh. I won’t laugh too loud though as I probably make similar mistakes translating Dutch to English resulting in Denglisch J. Obviously it is not easy to translate Anniversary into the Dutch equivalent.

For my Dutch readers, here is the info provided:

Microsoft Trouwdag

Apple Event

This week we have tough competition with our SDN Cast. At the same time of our Cast there was the Apple Event announcing a new Apple Watch, the iPhone 7, wireless earbuds. Every now and then we picked up some pricing or news items from the Apple show. We are not forgetting that a large part of Software Development is targeting Apple devices so it has our attention!

SDN-Cast_thumb.png

This week we recorded our Dutch SDN Cast live on location at venue Hotel Oud London in Zeist as intro for our quarterly SDN Event. As usual we discuss the news and events for this week but today also a short intro on the speakers at our SDN event.

It is our first on venue recording so we had no clue to what to bring and how to get this to work. I’ll promise, next recordings will slowly get better once we know how to get our gear functioning properly J.

Roy Janssen offered to show us the HoloLens to all the attendees at the SDN Event on top of an introduction session in the first session slots to give an impression what you can do with it and how to work with a HoloLens to create your own applications. Over the day everyone had the chance to try the HoloLens and personally experience what it feels like. His company can be found at his website http://semper-IT.nl.

Demo context:

This week in our Dutch webcast two demos, the HoloLens Teaser and a Docker Intro. We asked Roy Janssen to give us a quick intro of what we can expect in his sessions at the SDN Event next week September 2nd and we also did a Docker Demo as a follow up of one of our earlier SDN Casts where we discussed the Docker Conference a couple of weeks ago.

HoloLens

This week a HoloLens Teaser to warm us up for next week’s event we organized: SDN Event op 2 september. Roy is showing us what you can do with the HoloLens and is showing what Augmented Reality is all about. Next week in the SDN Event session he will deep dive into the HoloLens in a special session giving an overview of the options you have to develop for the HoloLens by showing use of the tools and applications available. His company can be found at his website http://semper-IT.nl.

Docker

A couple of weeks ago we discussed the Docker Conference in our Events section. As promised back then, this week we finally demoed in our 16th Dutch SDN Cast Docker for Windows to show you how quick and easy it is to set up a running Docker environment on your Windows machine and use some of the images available on http://hub.docker.com.

We hope you like watching our Dutch SDN Casts to catch up in about an hour on the topics that are hot for this week and hear the latest news and see the great demo’s on technology and software development that you can apply in your real world scenarios.

Demo context:

In the SDN Cast Demo we tried to get an old .NET Forms application to be ported to .NET Core by switching out the backend using Entity Framework Core and existing databases. This didn’t go all that smooth but got it to work in the end showing the principle of how to get your hands on it and show what kind of issues you can run into doing this.

Here is a link we used to get us in the right direction:
