Feb 11th – Scott Guthrie Talks Shop IV

You can become a serverless blackbelt. Enrol in my course Learn you some Lambda best practice for great good! and learn best practices for performance, cost, security, resilience, observability and scalability. By the end of this course, you should be able to make informed decisions on which AWS service to use with Lambda and how to build highly scalable, resilient and cost efficient serverless applications.

This is an upcoming web seminar with Scott Gu, organised by the good folks at Linked .Net User Group (http://www.lidnug.org).

I attended one of their previous presentations with Joe Albahari on the new features in C# 4.0 (the recorded presentation can be viewed here) and thoroughly enjoyed that! A FREE web seminar with someone as influential in the .Net space as Scott Gu’s gotta be good!

Who those of you who doesn’t know who Scott Gu is, he’s a VP and one of the founding members of the Microsoft’s .Net platform and runs the development teams responsible for Visual Studio developer tools and technologies for building web applications (e.g. ASP.NET MVC).

(Unconfirmed story!) Whilst still an intern, he developed the original ASP.NET platform with another senior developer at Microsoft, just to give you some idea about who the man is :-)
