Shropshire Devs is a free-to-attend user group which is made possible by our great sponsors Proto Labs as well as our community organisers.
Speakers from both the industry and community are chosen to present on topics requested by you, our attendees. These are usually focused on web development topics.
Free pizza is provided by our sponsors for all events, because what would a developers user group be without pizza?
As a developer, you might dread the thought of being asked to reconfigure servers or deploy new infrastructure but why? Treat your Infrastructure As Code!
In this talk, we’ll walk through how you can re-use your skills as a developer and apply those to the the concept of Infrastructure As Code. We’ll also cover the various benefits it can bring such as being able to version your infrastructure just like your application code.
I don't know about you, but I'm a lazy developer. What do I mean by lazy? I don't mean I don't want to do my work - far from it - I mean that I hate to write out a great deal of code to get the job done. I want to accomplish my goals with as little effort as possible.
In this talk, I'll demonstrate a way of working that avoids all this unnecessary work, and gives you more time to do something more productive.
We've all experienced that moment when your boss/customer calls you and says;
"This is just a small change, I can't imagine it would take more than half an hour or so"
And your heart sinks, because you know what these "small" tweaks actually entail. You have to find the code, which means navigating all the "layers" of your application. If you're lucky, you can locate the relevant ASP.NET controller, but you know that's only the start.
It doesn't have to be this way!
