    That just happened! A look at event-based serverless computing

    Distributed applications are now the norm. Distributed across servers, across data centers, and across clouds. On different platforms and by different teams. How do we connect all of these? It turns out that events are a good tool for this. Also, we're moving further up the stack to functions and lambdas, and "serverless" computing. These two things work very well together by enabling us to create powerful applications very quickly and with a minimum of ceremony. If you want to rapidly build a robust and scalable event-based backend, this session is for you. Glenn will teach you the concepts you need and show you how to put them into practice.

    Flow: the worst software development approach in history

    Ever since we started writing code in the fifties of the previous century, managers and project managers have tried to discipline and structure the way we work. However, no matter how many consultants and coaches are hired to implement increasingly complex process frameworks and methodologies, developers and testers always come up with new simplistic approaches. During this talk, Kim and Sander will feal with Flow: the worst software development methodology in the history ever, taking inspiration from the worst principles and practices from methodologies such as waterfall, RUP, Scrum, Kanban, Lean, BDD, LeSS , SAFe, Spotify and of course everything continuous. Don't let project failure take you by surprise, be certain!

    Developing multi-tenant SaaS business applications on Azure

    Designing for the cloud might seem daunting, because there are so many cloud services to choose from and so many ways to design your cloud application. The reality is that things aren't as tough as they might seem. We are all building different apps, but the foundations are largely the same. This means there are only a few key design decisions that you have to make, and you only need to use a few core cloud services to meet the majority of your requirements.

    The sane version of my talk title is 'Modern Security Standards'. During the talk we're going to cut through some of the crazy acronyms that seem to multiply like rabbits. Let's examine the awesome features we can use to easily and quickly boost security, and which we can also leverage to make our lives easier! Better performance, more control, and fewer errors are just some of the benefits you'll get.

    Growing great teams and adopting new processes through Elastic Leadership

    As managers, architects, and other types of technical team leaders, you usually study methodologies, practices, and techniques for delivering software. Often your learning leaves you a great desire to "change" how things work, but you soon discover that you’re "stuck". Stuck convincing your team to adopt particular practices. Stuck with too little time to learn how to implement these practices ("we don’t have time for unit testing"). Stuck with all the people-related aspects of leading a team.

    In this talk we will cover some of the essential skills and techniques for leading software teams, based on elastic and adaptive leadership principles. You will gain insight into the skills that make real change happen in your team, and how to transform the team you have into the team you want.

    1. Learn about the three basic team modes: Survival mode, Learning mode, and Self Organization mode. Learn how to understand which mode your team is in right now.
    2. Learn essential skills for the three modes of leadership you will need for the three phases of the team: Command and control leadership, Coaching and facilitative leadership.
    3. Learn how to start changing anything by understanding why people behave the way they do and grasp the six influence forces that affect our behaviour.

    Building real-world mobile apps with Xamarin: Under the hood of the Azure Mobile app

    This is not another run-of-the-mill Xamarin tutorial; in this talk we discuss how we built a real-world mobile app with Xamarin, from zero to the App Store and Google Play. We share what we've learned building the Azure Mobile app, as well as Xamarin project architecture, UI testing with Xamarin Test Cloud, and CI/CD with Visual Studio Team Services and Hockey App. Every project has its dark side: there are a lot of mistakes we have made and learned from. Get key insights, tips and tricks gained from the project, which will hopefully save you time when working on your own projects.

This year we’re putting together our 4th edition of the event. In each of the last three years, the WROC# conference attracted over 450 participants to Wroclaw. Each conference consists of six 60-minute talks on various aspects of programming plus a discussion panel. We have had the pleasure of hearing outstanding speakers like: Shawn Wildermuth, Tess Fernandez, Steve Sanderson, Julie Lerman, Ian Cooper, Dan North, and many more. The topics on the agenda at WROC# are always diverse – Azure, Security, Angular, and microservices, to name but a few. Conference tradition dictates that after the fruitful presentations we invite our guests to join in a party full of delicious food, specially brewed WROC# beer, and fun.

Don’t miss out this year’s event – come spend a day full of knowledge with us! Shawn Wildermuth put it nicely: “Poland and Wrocsharp were awesome!” That should be all the convincing anyone needs! Now just get on the ball and be ready when registration time comes. But you’d better be alert and quick – the tickets for our last edition disappeared in… five minutes! We can’t wait to see you there, and make sure you follow our event updates on Twitter and Facebook.
