Start building distributed applications with ease using building block APIs

Are you interested in building distributed applications or microservice architectures in .NET, but don't know where to start? Join this session and learn how common building block APIs such as Dapr can make your life easier!

Dapr, the Distributed Application Runtime, provides a set of common APIs that makes building microservices a breeze. As the 10th largest CNCF project, Dapr is used in production by companies like IBM, Alibaba Cloud & Microsoft and is a trusted OSS technology backed by a vibrant developer community.

This (code heavy) session covers the various building blocks of Dapr: service invocation, pub/sub messaging, state stores, configuration, and workflow. Code samples & live demos will be provided in .NET.

After this session, you'll have a good understanding how Dapr can help you build distributed and resilient applications in .NET.
