Want to learn how to setup CI/CD while you're choosing tech stack? What drives technology choices for the project? Why it pays off to invest some time upfront for infrastructure.

I will tell you not only setup your project, but also eliminate single points of failures so that your project is resilient and can be delivered in time.

OnUp was one of the most interesting project I've been involved with - fixed deadline, Super Bowl commercial, very high performance requirements - I think anyone interested in agile delivery will benefit from our lessons learned.

We'll cover:
- Continues Delivery, getting familiar with TeamCity.
- Azure deployments
- Scaling Azure for handle high load using blob storage and CDN

After this session you'll know how to setup a project and solution in Azure for continues deployment, how to promote build between environments and handle changes.

Main Meeting: Cross Platform Mobile App Development using Xamarin & Azure

Wednesday, June 14, 2017 5:30:00 PM ( Add to calendar... )

In the circles of web development, “Mobile First”, developing for mobile clients before considering desktop clients, has become an accepted approach to delivering solutions. It is the recognition that many application users are using their mobile device as the primary tool for utilizing software. In some scenarios, the mobile web experience falls short of the user experience expected.  As a result there is a large demand for native mobile applications.

With combining the features of Xamarin and Azure, software providers can deliver cross platform, globally scalable, and secure native mobile applications for the most popular mobile platforms.  Utilizing existing skills, developers can significantly reduce time to market and capitalize on the growing trend of mobile devices as a primary tool to use software and consume data.

In this talk, we will explore how Xamarin can be used to leverage your existing skills to deliver fully native mobile applications for the most popular mobile platforms. In addition, we will add Azure Mobile Apps to our solution to provide the backend data store for data synchronization, user authentication, and support push notifications.

Speaker: Richard Taylor

I am a 25 year software development and technology professional living in Huntersville, NC. My experience includes the design and development of small to enterprise class applications.  For the last 10 years, I have focused on web based applications. I have a great deal of experience but I do like to explore new technologies, tools, and techniques to help create better software. 

Currently, I'm the president and founder of New Oak Software, LLC.  New Oak Software, LLC is a software development firm that creates software products in the area of personal financial management and business administration.  Our firm also provides software development consulting, software development management, and product development (coding) to assist our clients in meeting their business objectives.

I am also a Tech Lead and member of a highly skilled development team at Logical Advantage in Charlotte, NC delivering software solutions utilizing the following technologies: 

SQL Server/MongoDB 

As a team member, I am required to develop software at all levels of the modern software stack. (Front-end, API, and data store)  I also consult and provide solutions to overall software architecture and user experience which involves deep research into tool-set capabilities, reviewing trends and best practices, and development of prototypes.

The software development community is also a passion of mine.  I serve as one of the organizers of the Modern Devs Charlotte meetup group and I am the founding organizer of the Charlotte Xamarin Developers meetup group.  With both groups we try to create environments where developers of all skill levels can come together and learn about the latest tools, techniques, and technologies. These groups also provide a venue to network with fellow developers in the community. 

When not developing software, I am focused on spending time with my lovely wife Shondrecca and our five children. (Richard, Ayanna, David, Jonathan, and Stephen)
