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?
Specification by Example (SBE), and the related practices of Behaviour Driven Development (BDD) and Acceptance Test-Driven Development (ATDD), are effective techniques to collaboratively drive the implementation of agile stories, using test automation frameworks that blend acceptance tests with specifications and system documentation.
How do we get the right level of detail in specifications? How do we express good acceptance tests that are both readable and automated? How do we get long-term value from these artefacts as documentation?
Everyone seems to be talking about Kubernetes with companies seemingly tripping over themselves to support Kubernetes. In this talk we'll introduce Kubernetes, discuss the key concepts of the platform, its high-level architecture and how to get a Kubernetes cluster up and running in minutes. We'll talk about and demo (hopefully!) deploying .NET applications to Kubernetes and we'll finish with a discussion of the future where you can deploy both legacy and modern .NET applications to the same platform.
You committed to TDD, you embraced your agile methodology, you read up on CQRS and whiteboarded your microservices. The time has to come to release and you are brimming with confidence. But once you are live the pain starts coming; deadlocks in the Db, servers that begin queuing requests and then fail, users reporting errors you have never seen. Keeping an application alive in production takes more than just good practices. You have to understand stability patterns like retry and circuit breaker, you have to understand what it means to be a multi-user system if you don't want deadlocks.
