SDDConf 2015

Scott Brady SDDConf 2015

For the past week I've been a country bumpkin in the big smoke for SDDConf 2015. The trip has had it's ups and downs (I got mugged, yay!) but overall the conference was a success. I got to see some excellent speakers, including some I didn't know of before hand, and gain some immeasurable knowledge.

I also finally met Dominick Baier and Brock Allen, the creators of Identity Server, and was vaguely recognised, so I guess there was some worth in plastering my ugly mug all over this site.

Upcoming Posts

So out of the back of this you can expect a flurry of blog posts coming up so that I can record and expand on some of the subjects that were covered.

Subjects include:

  • Identity Server: Yet more posts about Identity Server (maybe this time with a better title than 'part 1', 'part 2', etc.)
  • Event Tracing for Windows (ETW) and the Semantic Logging Application Block (SLAB): Because apparently I was the only one at the conference not writing my logs synchronously, in-process. WTF, right?
  • Task Parallel Library (TPL): Just to cover some basics and pointers in the right direction that helped me gain a deeper understanding.

So expect these posts over the next couple of months and apologies if I was socially awkward around anyone. I promise I'll be a bit more chipper next time (see above excuse).

Special Thanks

Special thanks and a quick promotion for the following speakers:

Now to write up my notes for the colleagues back home!
