Functions17 – Toronto, ON

FaaS (Function as a Service) architecture is radically changing how software is built how teams interface with each other and systems at scale. The old paradigms of REST are being replaced with remote functions, event-driven architectures, and new standards like GraphQL. We’re organizing a space for Creativity, Exploration, Discussion and Learning to help developers learn and get in touch with the industry leaders on these topics.

Join us for a full day event with speakers from industry leading FaaS companies and a panel discussion on the future of the FaaS tooling and infrastructure space!

Global Azure Bootcamp 2017

Learning about Azure is a massive undertaking for anyone. The Azure Cloud Platform is really big and offers a very long list of great services. How do you get a grip on it all? Together! Community leaders around the world know very well how challenging it is to find the right presenters, get good material and keep up to date with the fast moving Azure Platform.

Call it shooting at a moving target or drinking from the fire hose, we all feel it! Together we can focus our combined strengths, find resources, local user groups and connect to each other to learn smarter! Let’s build a list of resources and enable ways to connect the whole year and not only during Global Azure Bootcamp! Any user group leader can be a part of this if they wish!

More about this story will unfold as we get closer to the event. First of all, right now, sign up to create your own Global Azure Bootcamp event! Welcome to GAB 2017!

Mobile Solutions with Xamarin.Forms and Considerations Before Using Open Source

Building Mobile Solutions with Xamarin.Forms

Everyone wants a mobile application, but supporting each of the major platforms isn’t a trivial task. Ramping up multiple programming languages and duplicated logic per platform are major concerns that need to be addressed. With Xamarin.Forms, developers can build native mobile applications using the power of .NET while achieving a high level of code reuse. In this session, we’ll explore the core features of Xamarin.Forms and see what it takes to get started building quality native apps.

Mandatory Considerations Before Using Open Source Code

There is rarely a topic in business that can divide a crowd with as much passion and fury as a political debate. However, Open Source Code has that ability. Whether you’re a software developer, a business owner or an acquirer of businesses, you need to understand Open Source Code. It’s too advantageous to ignore and too dangerous to underestimate.

This presentation will cover:

i. A general history and overview of Open Source Code,
ii. Its legal mechanics and potential legal pitfalls, and
iii. Prudent courses of action for:

a. Software Developers who are looking to avoid malpractice;
b. Business Owners who are looking to avoid unforeseen litigation; and
c. Business Acquirers who are looking to save money on the purchase price of acquisitions.
