Business users of Microsoft solutions such as SharePoint, CRM, NAV, etc, are always looking to leverage their investment and make better use of the technology. During this session we’ll look at how traditional, paper based business processes can be re-engineered and streamlined using image capture and processing software to deliver increased efficiency, reduced cost and improved accuracy whilst integrating seamlessly with existing Microsoft technologies. The session will cover technologies including OCR, OMR, ICR, PDF Forms and will include the ‘live’ development of a solution to integrate PDF forms with Office 365 SharePoint.

Striking an optimal balance between the levels of investment in tools (“Price” of the tools decision) and the level of investment in skill, effort and time (“Cost” of the initiative), is one of the most important decisions to be made in the early stages of any process automation initiative.
Organizations where significant Microsoft technology investments have been made, often have the following objectives in mind when selecting tools and platform technologies for the creation and maintenance of workflow driven applications:
• Empower a broader audience to participate
• Maximize the leverage on investments in Microsoft technologies and skills
• Minimize the time, effort and skill required to meet business requirements
We are all faced with a variety of technology options that will assist in achieving the three objectives listed above. The “million-dollar” question is: To what extent does each technology choice achieve these objectives and where is the optimal balance between “Price” and “Cost”? Attendees of this presentation will learn more about the key factors that organizations should consider when selecting workflow tools and technologies to complement their investments in Microsoft technology and skills.
Speaker: Reza Rad

With the advent of nuget and social coding sites like github, it is ever easier to consume and create open source code. Join Ian for an open discussion about why, when and how to join in this exciting new world for all developers (even Microsoft ones!)
Speaker: Nikolai Blackie
Do you suffer from elevated stress and high blood pressure from your current software release cycles? Lost count of the 2am troubleshooting sessions trying to working out why production didn’t deploy like test? In this session you will see real life continuous delivery strategies from the field, learn some implementation techniques and demonstrations of a few tools that will assist in reducing the headache of manual software delivery.
Speaker: Daniel Larsen
In this action packed session we will answer the question “how quickly can I code a (realistic) mobile web app?” Leveraging some great technologies and frameworks including jQuery Mobile, ASP.NET MVC and SQL Server Compact. In the process we will deep dive Razor, dynamic types, custom MVC views and more. We will also consider Lean methodology and Domain Driven Design, and do some maths with the Elo Rating System algorithm.
Speaker: Daniel Larsen
Domain Driven Design puts the business domain at the heart of the software and can revolutionise your software design process. This session takes a walk through some key Domain Driven Design concepts that are especially relevant to .NET developers. We will start from a theoretical standpoint and then move into practical examples, concluding with an Aggregate object design session using DDD methodology. If you have been or are considering using DDD concepts anywhere in your stack, this session will help you to consider aspects of software design from a DDD standpoint.
Speaker: Colin Bowern
Hang on a second - don't you dare drop in another TABLE tag to create a column on the page! There's a good thing brewing in Cascading Style Sheets yet many good developers have been put off by years of fighting with cross-browser issues. This cornerstone technology is key to not just the web but also Windows 8 apps.
In this session we will make the case for why CSS is important to your code not just from a layout perspective but also an architectural perspective. We'll take you through the mental models you need to keep in mind like the box model and how CSS can do more than just font colors and height/width. You will walk away with a whole new respect for this powerful layout engine (and if time permits how you could even solve the Fizz Buzz problem with it!).
Speaker: Danijel Malik
In this session I’ll show how we managed to create two manufacturing applications with around 50% of the code reused. Although it’s the same business line, the products are entirely different. You’ll see how we designed the database, middle tier, services and UI in the way that it’s possible to reuse it again and again.
Speaker: Adam Cogan
iPhones give an awesome User Experience but interface design is not something that belongs solely in the world of Apple. Your website and applications can all benefit greatly from an understanding of how your users might navigate your product. Unfortunately for developers, interface usability is something of an afterthought, making your otherwise perfect application suck.
In this session, get real world examples of good and bad usability from Adam. Bring along your websites and applications and undergo the Adam Cogan crash test!
The session will commence with a detailed discussion of good interface design and usability, and then move onto an analysis of good and bad site examples.
The presentation will finish with an open floor workshop to discuss user submitted sites and applications, and workshop improvements for attendees as well as a vote on applying the correct architecture in certain situations (JQuery+HTML5 vs Silverlight or WPF or Windows 8 Metro).
Speaker: Josh Robb
Wish you were doing ASP.NET MVC but stuck with a brownfield WebForms app. We'll walk through integrating MVC into an existing WebForms app. Whats possible, where the challenges are and what you need to think about to overcome them.
