.NET Developer Tips and Tricks

We all have our own tips and tricks to what makes good, clean code that leads to powerful applications. We wanted to take a moment and share a couple of insights from some .NET developers on how they make powerful products. What are your tips?

Jérémy Jeanson

ncover_mvp_jeremy_jeanson_twitterMicrosoft Integration MVP Jérémy Jeanson discovered computers very early in life when his father brought home a Lynx: a funny box that produced Bezier curves on a small screen. Intrigued by the machine, he tried the basics, discovered storage on magnetic tape and powerful computers with 64Kb RAM. During his studies, Jeremy adopted .NET technologies, and a new world opened to him.

His best technology tip? KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid) and keep an open mind. He believes developers should always keep their options open, neglecting no technology. Jeremy says, “More mastery of a technology offers a better chance to give customers a simple and effective solution…You should not choose the solution you prefer, but one that is most suited.”

More advice and recent projects from Jeremy on his blog and @jeremyjeanson.

Gian Paolo Santopaolo

ncover_mvp_gian_paolo_santopaolo_twitterItalian Hardware Interaction Design and Development MVP Gian Paolo Santopaolo designs and develops NUI user experiences for multitouch devices, focusing primarily on PPI by Microsoft and Kinect. He researches and creates prototypes for tactile and gesture recognition solutions with particular attention to the interaction between the two. For over a decade he has been dealing with architecture, design and development of enterprise applications with extreme scalability requirements by implementing the latest technologies.

Gian Paolo has always had a knack for working in teams, so sharing his expertise in communities comes naturally. He believes exchanging ideas is the way to find solutions from which everyone can benefit. His best advice can be summed up in two words: sharing passion. Gian Paolo says, “Always share your expertise, because history teaches us that sharing knowledge always leads to a collective growth.”

Oracle Unveils Suite of Breakthrough Services to Help Simplify Cloud Adoption by Global Corporations

Oracle Database News - Thu, 03/24/2016 - 13:00
Press Release Oracle Unveils Suite of Breakthrough Services to Help Simplify Cloud Adoption by Global Corporations First-of-a-kind services enable organizations to bring the Oracle Cloud Platform inside their own datacenter

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Mar 24, 2016

Oracle today launched a new family of offerings designed to enable organizations to easily move to the cloud and remove some of the biggest obstacles to cloud adoption. These first-of-a-kind services provide CIOs with new choices in where they deploy their enterprise software and a natural path to easily move business critical applications from on-premises to the cloud.

Oracle Cloud Machine

Oracle Cloud Machine

While organizations are eager to move their enterprise workloads to the public cloud, many have been constrained by business, legislative and regulatory requirements that have prevented them from being able to adopt the technology. Today, Oracle is making it easier for organizations in every industry to make this transition and finally reap the performance, cost and innovation benefits of Oracle Public Cloud Services and run them wherever they want—in the Oracle Cloud or in their own datacenter.

“We are committed to helping our customers move to the cloud to help speed their innovation, fuel their business growth, and drive business transformation,” said Thomas Kurian, president, Oracle. “Today’s news is unprecedented. We announced a number of new cloud services and we are now the first public cloud vendor to offer organizations the ultimate in choice on where and how they want to run their Oracle Cloud.”

Unveiled today, Oracle Cloud at Customer enables organizations to get all of the benefits of Oracle’s cloud services—agility, simplicity, performance, elastic scaling, and subscription pricing—in their datacenter. This is the first offering from a major public cloud vendor that delivers a stack that is 100 percent compatible with the Oracle Cloud but available on-premises. Since the software is seamless with the Oracle Cloud, customers can use it for a number of use cases, including disaster recovery, elastic bursting, dev/test, lift-and-shift workload migration, and a single API and scripting toolkit for DevOps. Additionally, as a fully managed Oracle offering, customers get the same experience and the latest innovations and benefits using it in their datacenter as in the Oracle Cloud.

By extending the Oracle Cloud into their data center, customers can:

  • Have full control over their data and meet all data sovereignty and data residency requirements that mandate customer data remain within a company’s data center or contained within a geographic location while still taking advantage of the benefits of the cloud
  • Enable workload portability between on-premises and cloud using identical environments, toolsets, and APIs
  • Easily move Oracle and non-Oracle workloads between on-premises and the cloud based on their changing business requirements
  • Comply with security and privacy regulations such as PCI-DSS for the global credit and debit card industry, HIPAA for the US healthcare industry, FedRAMP for the US federal government, Germany’s Federal Data Protection Act, the United Kingdom's Data Protection Act, and other industry- and country-specific regulations

Today, Oracle is announcing the availability of the following Oracle Cloud at Customer services:

  • Infrastructure: Provides elastic compute, elastic block storage, virtual networking, file storage, messaging, and identity management to enable portability of Oracle and non-Oracle workloads into the cloud. Additional IaaS services that complete the portfolio, including Containers and Elastic Load Balancer will be available soon.
  • Data Management: Enables customers to use the number one database to manage data infrastructure in the cloud with the Oracle Database Cloud. The initial set of Database Cloud Service offerings will be followed by Oracle Database Exadata Cloud for extreme performance and a broad set of Big Data Cloud services, including Big Data Discovery, Big Data Preparation, Big Data Cloud, and Big Data SQL.
  • Application Development: Develop and deploy Java applications in the cloud using Oracle Java Cloud, soon to be followed by other services for polyglot development in Java SE, Node.Js, Ruby, and PHP.
  • Enterprise Integration: Simplify integration of on-premises applications to cloud applications and cloud application to cloud application integration using the Oracle Integration Cloud Service. Additional capabilities for SOA, API Management, and IoT will be added soon.
  • Management: Unifies the experience of managing workloads seamlessly on-premises and in the Oracle Cloud.

The Oracle Cloud has shown strong adoption, supporting 70+ million users and more than 34 billion transactions each day. It runs in 19 data centers around the world.
