Most modern apps are distributed by nature. This makes them powerful, flexible, scalable, and resilient. It also makes them a pain to develop locally. From co-dependent microservices, to infrastructure needs like databases and Redis, to packaging and deploying containerized apps, getting a local dev environment to play nicely with all the necessary dependencies can be a nightmare.

Join Polaris’ Jess Likens and Abdulrahman Hussein as they demonstrate two products from Microsoft specifically aimed at reducing the pain of developing distributed applications: Project Tye and Dapr. From service discovery to automatic downloading of containerized dependencies, packaging to deployment, they’ll cover what each product enables, how to incrementally add them to your development pipeline, and how to use them to unify your app deployment process.

  • 6:10 pm – Lightning Talk
  • 6:30 pm – Main Talk: Untangle Distributed Applications with Tye and Dapr

Watch the recording above.

Intended audience: The Main Talk will focus on the infrastructure that glues together distributed .NET applications. Limited knowledge of what microservices are and the types of challenges faced by distributed application developers is recommended but not required. By the end of this presentation, you will understand what Tye and Dapr are, what they bring to the table, and how to integrate them with your development pipeline.
