Ondrej's Sessions

  • Custom Middleware & Microservices with ASP.NET Core

    At the core of ASP.NET Core is Microsoft's implementation of the OWIN standard, giving developers full control over the ASP.NET pipeline. In this session I will explain what OWIN is and how it can empower you to quickly and easily reconfigure an entire web application. Now in full control, you can do everything from injecting custom code (middleware) into any stage of the pipeline to running lightweight applications and microservices without MVC.

  • ReSharper: Discover the Secrets

    Whether you're new to ReSharper or have been using it for years, there are a host of lesser-known features that can save you loads of time. ReSharper is used by a growing number of developers to speed up or eliminate some of the most repetitive parts of writing code. It supplements Visual Studio with an extensive and ever-expanding list of features like additional refactorings, code & file templates, code analysis, improved navigation, and much more. In this session you will see some of my favorites and discover a few hidden gems that don't get the recognition they deserve.
