Yesterday we had our July monthly user group gathering for Sri Lanka SharePoint User Group. We had 02 sessions – Business Continuity and Office 365 API.
Dinusha delivered a session on Office 365 API.
I delivered a session on implementing a business continuity for SharePoint and I covered topics such as monitoring SharePoint using Health Analyzer, Diagnosing logging, Usage and health data collection, implementing high availability using distributing servers and services using SharePoint WFEs, Application services servers, network load balancing, database mirroring, backup SharePoint and SQL Server databases and scheduling using Windows Task Scheduler.
We had our May 2014 .NET monthly forum meet-up today at Microsoft Sri Lanka. We had 02 great sessions today and I was fortunate to deliver one of them on “Architecting Application using .NET”.
We had so many technical, deep-dive sessions on various development tools, frameworks. But we never had any sessions around on how to derive on a proper application design for our .NET applications. We have so many technologies, frameworks, patterns today for designing application architecture. We end-up repeating, copying our past project experience rather than really assessing what is the right application design architecture.
In this session, I discussed:
- What Software Application Architecting is?
- Layers vs Tiers
- Design best practices
- Presentation layer options
- Data Access layer options
- Domain layer patterns
We were very much happy to see a room-full crowd once again in .NET Forum.
