  • Workshops

  • Donald Belcham

    Workshop 1: Getting Ahead of Delivery Issues with Deep SDLC Analysis

    Capacity: 90
    Requirements: None

    Many software development teams have multiple systems that support their software development life cycle. Continuous integration, task/backlog management, version control and other systems make up these ecosystems. Most teams and organizations only use the surface of each of these applications. Individually, each one of these applications creates and collects a vast amount of data and meta data that defines the development work that the organization is doing.

    How can you dig deeper than provided burn down charts, build failures and code coverage reports to learn more about your development process? How can you take all of the silently collected data from these different systems and use it to make decisions about what is going to happen in the future instead of what has happened in the past? What meaning and guidance can you extract from your development ecosystem that can make you more efficient, deliver higher quality software and perform better for your clients and their businesses?

    This seminar will expose you to merging the data and meta data in your development systems. It will introduce you to new metric and measures that will help you to identify potential weaknesses in your software and development process. You will see samples of how to integrate seemingly disparate systems to extract a deeper understanding of how your development process is working and how you can surface this information to members of the team and the business.

    Workshop 2: Windows Phone 8.1 App Development

    Capacity: 60
    Requirements: Windows 8.1, Windows Phone 8.1 SDK, Visual Studio 2013

  • Rachel Appel

    Workshop 3: Build an ASP.NET Web App

    Capacity: 60
    Requirements: Visual Studio 2012 or 2013

    If you're looking to learn what you need to know to build a web application in ASP.NET MVC that works across all browsers, then this workshop is for you. Come learn basic and advanced techniques for building an ASP.NET MVC web application, including Web API and SignalR. Includes "ASP.NET Intro", "ASP.NET MVC and SignalR Advanced Topics" and "Mobile Web Apps with MVC and Bootstrap".

    ASP.NET MVC Intro
    In this session, you'll learn how to build a basic website using ASP.NET MVC. We'll cover the fundamentals of Models, Views, and Controllers, the three main components of MVC development. We'll see how they work together to create robust, data-driven websites.

    ASP.NET MVC and SignalR Advanced topics
    This session aims to discuss advanced ASP.NET topics such as ASP.NET Web API, SignalR, ViewModels, Routing, and automated UI unit testing with WebDriver and Visual Studio.

    Mobile Web Apps with ASP.NET MVC and Bootstrap
    If you are creating new apps, or need to update your existing apps, Bootstrap is the way to most easily develop solutions that meet the needs of the ever increasing audience of the mobile market. Bootstrap provides a lightweight, cross platform, and responsive framework for developing mobile web sites and applications. And it's just CSS and JavaScript, so we only need to learn specific selectors and methods. In this session you will learn what you need to get started writing data-driven mobile web applications in Visual Studio with ASP.NET MVC and Bootstrap.

A naturally friendly country


The capital of Uruguay, harmoniously combines modernity and tradition. Ancient architectural treasures such as el Cabildo, the Iglesia Matriz and the Puerta de la Ciudadela, styles such as Art Nouveau and Art Deco and cutting-edge modern buildings such as the Torre de las Comunicaciones, give the city a unique identity. The capital’s Rambla (waterfront promenade), providing access to over 30 km of coastline, is one of the main attributes of Montevideo and an unforgettable stroll for its inhabitants who frequently go there to drink ‘mate’ (South American style of tea) and go for long walks, runs and biking. In addition, the vast number of green spaces, parks and gardens also provide numerous outdoor options.

Check the F.A.Q. for tips on how to get around the city.
