Julie Lerman visits Scotland.

Hello!

The Scottish Developers team have an exciting announcement, we have a special guest joining us for 2 events across east and west coasts: Julie Lerman.

We have partnered with Experis and are pleased to have them support Julie Lerman’s mini-tour of Scotland.  In her presentations in Glasgow and Edinburgh, she will be sharing her latest insights on EF core as well as architectural guidance around dealing with data in the context of modern web development on the .Net stack

Glasgow: May 16th – @ Glasgow Caledonian University

Mapping DDD Domain Types with EF Core

Entity Framework half-heartedly supported DDD patterns. But the new-from-scratch EF Core has brought new hope for DDD practitioners to map your well-designed domain classes to a database, reducing the cases where a separate data model is needed. EF Core is very DDD friendly, even supporting things like fully encapsulated collections, backing fields and the return of support for value objects. In this hands we’ll review some well-designed aggregates and explore how far EF Core goes to act as the data model between your domain classes and your data store.

Edinburgh: May 21st –  @ Microsoft, Waverly Gate.

Building Cross-Platform Server-Side Data APIs

Front ends are cool but mostly useless without data. Sure, some of your data sources provide REST APIs so you can just write queries directly against them but that is so old school. Instead, you can build back end APIs that address the specific data needs of your web application and relieve front end devs from tangling with database schema, query syntax and other distractions. In this session you’ll learn the basics of creating a back end API as well as some smart architectural guidance to make moving data between your front end and your data store. We’ll start with an ASP.NET Core Web API, EF Core and a relational database, then look at a data API built with Azure Functions to support a Cosmos DB document database.

As you can imagine, we are really excited to have Julie visit us here in Scotland and give not one but two talks for the Scottish Developers group. Both events are free to attend thanks to our hosts and sponsors Experis.

We hope to see you all there!

The Scottish Developers Team.
