Keeping a Legacy Alive with Office 365, VSTS and Azure

For nearly thirty years my father ran a small software company out of his home. When he unexpectedly passed away in June of 2016 one of the decisions my family faced was to either shut down the company or continue supporting the nearly 1000 law firms that had come to rely on the product.

This is the story of not only keeping his legacy alive but also of building on it in a way that wouldn’t have been economically feasible even a few years ago. Throughout the journey we’ll explore how Office 365 improves our communications, how Visual Studio Team Services gives us enterprise-scale DevOps, and how Azure App Services and Storage Accounts give us the flexibility to grow. Together, these services allow this small, family business to run like a world-class organization without a world-class budget.

Dockerize Your .NET Development Environment

It works on my machine. We’ve all heard it. Most of us have said it. It’s been impossible to get around it… until now. Not only can Docker-izing your .NET development environment solve that issue, but it can make it drop-dead simple to onboard new developers, keep a team working forward and allow everyone on the team use their desired tools! I will show you how to get Docker set up to use as the run environment for your .NET projects, how to maintain the docker environment, and even how easy it will be to deploy the whole environment to production in a way that you are actually developing in an environment that isn’t just “like” production. It IS the production environment! You will learn the basics of Docker, how to use it to develop and how deploy your “development” environment as the production environment!

Kanban for Support and Maintenance Projects

New Agile projects spin up every day. But, pure Scrum based Agile methodologies do not fit the needs of all projects. Examples of projects that may not fit these methods:

  • A legacy project migrated to a cloud platform
  • Budgets shifted towards newer investements
  • A new merger brings on new properties
  • Existing projects have shifted into an end-of-life, but not end-of-support phase

This work provides value to customers or clients. Retaining these efforts to fund new opportunities is a critical business role. How do you maintain the efficiencies and methods from Scrum/Agile for this type of work?

Kanban! This introduction to Kanban will explore Flow, Work in Process, Vizualization, and Continuous Improvement.

Octopus Deploy: Automating .NET Deployments

Octopus Deploy is a tool for .NET deployment automation. You can use it to deploy IIS websites, Windows services, and even certificates and scripts that you need to run on remote machines.

Octopus Deploy has the potential to make deploying from the build server to remote machines painless and repeatable- but there are some things you may want to know up front to make that happen. This session will explore why you might want to try Octopus Deploy, what sort of issues you may run into, and how Ocuvera uses Octopus to manage our on-premise product installations & updates.
