“this” isn’t what you think it is: JavaScript for the Object Oriented Developer

ABSTRACT:

JavaScript is not just for DOM manipulation: with its growing presence in browsers, on servers, and now the desktop with Windows 8, JavaScript is fast becoming the ubiquitous programming language. Regardless of your background, odds are pretty good that JavaScript will be part of your future. JavaScript has a unique feature set that can make it challenging for object oriented programmers. In this introductory session we’ll discuss some of JavaScript’s pitfalls and strengths. We’ll take a look at strategies for developing JavaScript namespaces, classes, and objects from an object oriented perspective.  We’ll also discuss some of the more popular JavaScript libraries that you’ll definitely want to have in your toolbox.

Azure Storage Revisited: Using Blobs and Tables in the Real World

Abstract:

Windows Azure storage has been around for a number of years now. With the rising popularity of NoSQL data stores, it’s time to take a fresh look at Azure Storage. Azure offers a lot of advantages to the .NET developer. In this session we will discuss the ins and outs of Tables and when you might want to use each. We’ll use the local Azure Storage emulator for development and write code to perform CRUD operations against Tables.

Stubs, Shims, and Mocks, oh my! Unit Testing with Visual Studio Fakes

Some code is just plain hard to test. Visual Studio’s Fakes facility attempts to make it possible to test the untestable. In this session, we’ll learn what Fakes assemblies are and how to create them. We’ll discuss the various aspects of the Fakes assemblies and put them into practice to solve some difficult testing scenarios.

A Gentle Introduction to Unit Testing

By now you’ve heard of unit tests. Perhaps you’ve read an article about them or watched a video. Maybe you’ve even tried to write a few yourself, but the whole unit testing “thing” hasn’t quite hit home yet. Maybe you’ve been put off by the Testinistas or your company thinks unit tests are just a bunch of extra code. No matter where you are on this spectrum, if you aren’t writing unit tests as part of your daily coding, then this talk is for you. In this gentle introduction, we will discuss the value of unit tests. You will learn some practical techniques you can use to start to make unit testing part of your daily routine.
