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.
This is my 1st session of the .NET Forum in year 2013. I decided to deliver the same session I delivered for SEA SharePoint Conference in Singapore this year.
I explained what is new and changed in Visual Studio 2012 for SharePoint developers and it was interesting to see that most of them have tried Visual Studio 2010 but not 2012. It was exciting to see room-full crowd and it was a good start for me for year 2013.
Room full crowd.

I was very fortunate to take part in the 3rd episode of Southeast Asia SharePoint Conference held on 16th and 17th January, 2013 in Singapore. This is the 3rd time we had this conference and it seemed the region has taken this event very serious and the number of attendees was a proof for the same.
I remember we has around 300 attendees for the 1st episode of the event back in 2010. And we has around 500 attendees for the 2nd episode back in 2011. This time we has around 900 attendees and I’m sure we will have more than 1000 for the next year conference.
I delivered a session in the Developer track and the session was “What’s New and Changed for me in Visual Studio 2012 as a SharePoint Developer“. It was very exciting to see a room-full audience and I managed to deliver all what I wanted during the session.
There were a lot of good sessions conducted by famous speakers such as Debbie, Randy, Richard, Pinal, Daniel, Mark, etc… and it was an exciting way to kick start the 2013 year.
