Come make a difference and learn some new tech. AllReady is an open source project built on ASP.NET Core and running on Azure. It is made available to charitable organizations to help organize disaster preparedness work enabling administrators to set goals, create campaigns, mobilize volunteers based on skill sets and provide real-time feedback of progress to the organization.
With AllReady, we have an active and growing contributor base that has made nearly 1500 commits across 750 issues and pull requests in the last year. It's a friendly, helpful community that is committed to getting good code into a product that lives. Hosted and planned openly in GitHub, the project is powered by the open source community and used in production by national-level organizations.
In this session we'll talk about the opportunity to "code for the greater good", cover the most interesting technical aspects of the project and help define ways that you can get connected to make your first pull request.
A new era of analytics is being engendered by cloud computing. The cloud gives us the power to collect and integrate data from an enormous variety of sources, to process big data at amazing scale and economics, to dramatically simplify development and deployment, and offer amazing intelligent APIs and applications as hosted services. In this keynote talk, Joseph will review with demos and examples how these game-changing developments will change how we live, work and play, and show the enormous opportunities for customers and partners to capitalize on these innovations.
