Ramp-up skills on UI : Time for .NET developers to ramp-up skills on UI Development. Be a generalist. No more, I don’t know CSS, JS and HTML
Remember the User-base and their devices
Look for light-weight alternatives. REST, WebAPI, JSON
Understand the Domain and Business – Programming is just one part!
Understand Product Vision, Sponsors, Customers, End-users, importance of User experience
Cloud Compute aware coding – Know when Cloud Footprint is high
Keep Cloud Footprint low using Stateless, Light-weight, Non Compute heavy, Less memory usage code
Understand Performance, Security, SEO and other non-functional expectations
Build for Change and be Agile!
Keep patterns like Dependency Injection in your arsenal.
Develop With Passion : It makes all the difference

Few Tips for asp.net developers 2014 and beyond

  1. 1. Authored by Sreejesh K M, CTO Toboc International
  2. 2.  Flood of Device types. › Mobile First UX › HTML 5, RWD with Bootstrap and JS/jQuery  HTML5 Maturing › UI Layer:Middle Layer:DB Code share shift towards 60:20:20, from the current situation of 15:55:30  Maturing Cloud Computing – need for lower Cloud Footprint,  REST-ful SOA! meaning lower memory and CPU consumption for given piece of code. Time to pick up WebAPI and other Light-weight technologies and styles like REST style instead of heavy SOAP with WCF! › Mobile Clients – send data as JSON. Enough of XML and SOAP for all! ›  Agile in MainStream › Built for Change
  3. 3.  ASP.NET is getting Nimble and Modern, especially with .net 4/4.5 › Better Aysnc support › Model binders, better HTML5 control support › More client centric coding with Inbuilt support for CSS and JS frameworks, WebEssentials, Visual Studio CSS, JS and HTML Editor features › WebSockets, SPA › SOA through WebAPI or WCF › MVC5, OWIN- Kantana  Competing with Node.js?  › IIS8 with less memory foot print – good news for cloud again › Robust AWS .NET API, SQL Server RDS › Seamless Integration with Azure  Robust MV* pattern choices › MVC, Webforms, MVVM
  4. 4. LESS, Razor, BootStrap  Knockout, AngularJS  MVC, MVVM  REST, WebAPI  NoSQL, RDS  .NET 4.5, WebAPI  Cloud Ready programming 
  5. 5.  Smaller Iterations -Prioritize Features with Success Sliders – Help product owners!  Smart use-cases, User Stories, Mobile First UX and Wireframes – Help product owners!  Break tasks down to manageable pieces Smaller Tasks and Smaller Timelines: Developers are a special breed of optimist: when presented with a Large programming task, they think, "That'll be easy! Won't take much time at all.“ But will take weeks to do it sometimes! › Instead give a programmer an afternoon to code a small, specific task and he'll crank it out, ready to move onto the next one. ›  Use Visual Studio and connected technologies and tools smartly to be ‘Agile’ › › › Write Testable Code, have test stubs Continuous Integration and Seamless Cloud deployments Use GitHub or TeamFoundation Service to see both big picture and specifics
  6. 6.   Develop With Passion : It makes all the difference Ramp-up skills on UI : Time for .NET developers to ramp-up skills on UI  Remember the User-base and their devices Development.
