TechDays NL 2017

On 12 and 13 October the Microsoft TechDays 2017 event took place in the RAI in Amsterdam. Info Support was a Platinum Sponsor during this year’s event and we had 14 speakers with 17 sessions on the agenda. I gave the following 3 talks:

Building an old-skool adventure game using Microsoft Bot Framework
In this session I talk about how my colleague Sander Molenkamp and I built an old-skool adventure game (inspired by classic titles like Monkey Island and Day of the Tentacle) using the Microsoft Bot Framework. This was originally a duo-presentation, but Sander was unable to make it. I explain this at the beginning of the session, but unfortunately this is not audible because the first minute of audio was not recorded. Sound is restored after the AV guy comes to the desk and flips a switch.

Building Microservices using .NET Core and Docker
In this session I give a short introduction of .NET Core and Docker and then show how I built a Microservices based application using these technologies.

Building Actor Model systems using Akka.NET
In this session I give an introduction of the Actor Model concept and Akka.NET as a framework you can use to build an Actor Model system. After the introduction I demo an application I’ve built using Akka.NET.
