Topic: Сучасна Azure інфраструктура за допомогою Pulumi, Biсep and Farmer. Або як обрати ідеальний IaaS.

Сучасні фреймворки дозволяють розробникам працювати із хмарною інфраструктурою без допомоги DevOps інженерів, отримуючи всі переваги від використання строго типізованих мов програмування. Я поділюсь своїм досвідом та підготую невелику демонстрацію для кожного фреймворку. До зустрічі! 

Modern infrastructure as a code in Azure for cross-functional teams via Pulumi, Bicep and Farmer. I will cover several frameworks to deploy infrastructure in Azure, share examples, and mention the pros and cons. And why it is sometimes hard to choose between Azure ARM template generation via strong typed DSL and a tool that supports your language. I will show three demos and share repositories to try frameworks for yourself.

Topic: DevSecOps for developers – why it's important and how to get started?

 

We already know that DevOps is a mix of Development and Operation. Based on that knowledge we can assume that DecSecOps is a mix of Development, Security, and Operation. But is it important for developers? And, in case it is, how to get started? During this session, we will explain what OWASP is, what are the most common security risks, how to assess them, how to protect your app from them, and how to do it in a repeatable and reusable way.

Sixty-third meeting of Microsoft .NET User Group Odesa

On February 11, 2021, Thursday at 19:00 the sixty-third meeting of Microsoft .NET User Group Odesa will take place!

The meeting will be held ONLINE.

Agenda:



Speaker: Alexander Demchuk, Fullstack Software Engineer, Provectus, Ukraine. 

Software Engineer with over 10 years experience in a variety of domains starting from low-level development for IP telephony and ending up with microservices-based applications in the fintech and movie industry. Last years exploring ML/AI doing researches on how to apply it to company culture creation.


Topic: How to measure relationships within the Company using .Net

The majority of companies are struggling with an issue of growth where they started from a handful group of people and reached 1000+ employees. In the case of small groups, the relationships remind family’s connections so everyone knows each other personally and the atmosphere is warm and charm whereas starting from 500+ to 1k keep it as family is tough and most of the companies come up with processes on one hand and culture on other. 

There ain’t no silver bullet on how to manage it and at the end of the day they are balancing working a lot about a good atmosphere in the company and setting up relationships between teams. The issue isn’t new however tools and approaches evolved a lot this is where .NET Core and ML.Net come in handy. 

These days AI/ML take over the world and bots as one of the implementations are already a part of our life therefore our enthusiastic team created a bot using the latest .NET Bot Framework v4 who helps managers to “measure” atmosphere in teams and crucial to socialize teams leveraging the power of ML.NET
