SDN Cast 29 Week 47 News and Events – Happy Holidays, Black Friday and Cyber Monday

sdncast-29_110_110

Traditionally from a US point of view one of the main sources for news and information on Software Development is shutting down. It is the week in the United States where everybody is moving home to celebrate their annual day of Thanksgiving to eat turkey and much more than that. No one is releasing any news in this week or even the week after (we did find a few exceptions as you can see in the news overview below). The day after Thanksgiving retail stores start their big day of sales called Black Friday, who hasn’t seen the videos where large groups of people all run into the stores falling over each other and steal products from other customers baskets? Following Black Friday there is Cyber Monday, originally meant to do the same as Black Friday but now for online retail stores. Both days did merge a bit and we see a whole week of online offers on great discounts. What did you buy today?

Even though it’s quiet this week we did find some interesting news items and discussed it at our SDN Cast this week. The number of events is dropping around this time, Connect(); by Microsoft was about the one big closing event. The videos are currently available on Channel9 if you want to watch them.

Where can you find the 29th edition of our Dutch SDN Cast?

SDNCast 21

It’s the Last week of September already and our twenty first SDN Cast week filled with announcements with one of the largest IT Pro events going on this week… Ignite! Just too many announcements to sum up but we will try to get some highlights here. Next to the announcements and events we also bring you two demos this week: Building a stub framework with .NET Core and providing great WPF/XAML User Interfaces within this ‘boring’ PowerShell environment. Did you know you can actually build graphical user interfaces while scripting your stuff in PowerShell?

Demo time

Fanie Reynders created an easy to use stub framework to use within your .NET Core projects to quickly test your application with some dummy information. The tool is available via Nuget and called Stubbr. Following the .NET Core demo Maarten showed us what most of us can’t imagine and that is building PowerShell scripts with an actual graphic designed User Interface implementing WPF/XAML. What you’ll see is that by extending the PowerShell script with additional XAML coding you can start building your own, nothing is too crazy, windows to interact with the end user but keep the power of scripting using PowerShell.

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 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.
