5 speakers we don’t want to miss on Techorama!

5 speakers we don’t want to miss on Techorama!

The 20th until 22nd of May Involved will be present on Techorama. There will be lots of incredible speakers, so it might be hard to choose who you want to see. We asked our developers about their ‘must see’ speakers on the event. We’ve got to say; they don’t have bad taste.

Our developer Rob recommends: Lander Verhack & Diedrik de Mits – Communication in a Microservices World

Wednesday, May 22 • 10:00 – 11:00

Because my current projects are changing more and more from a monolite towards a microservice architecture, this session looks interesting. I wonder how to do the communication between those two right. I hope to learn in this session how to handle transactions, unavailable services, etc.


Our developer Yassine recommends: David Berry – Building Enterprise Grade Web APIs in ASP.NET Core

Tuesday, May 21 • 11:30 – 12:30

Lately I’m building more API’s because I enjoy it and my work requires it. It has been a long search to find a good and sturdy design pattern that I can use in an enterprise surrounding. The examples I find are often too simplistic. In this session I hope to encounter some design patterns I can use in Selor.


Our developer Lucas recommends: Kevin Dockx – An in depth look at HttpClient 

Wednesday, May 22 • 15:00 – 16:00

Thanks to Kevin Dockx I had a very easy start on my first project at Involved. I had a Pluralsight class by him about writing an API in .net Core and have learned so much from that. Because this talk will be about a theme that I’ll be using a lot in the future, I think it’s a great idea to learn even more in-depth about it. My hopes are that he will talk about best practices that can be reused and tips that will make the subject easier.

Our developer Bruce recommends: Jason Alba – Seven Soft Skills At Least As Important As Technical Skills

Wednesday, May 22 • 15:00 – 16:00

Last year for me was all about my career switch to software development. I had to obtain a lot of technical knowledge. This technological know-how is of course crucial, but a developer need to know more than just technical things. I hope that this talk will inspire me to also develop my knowledge about non-technical skills.

Our developer Pieter recommends: Alex Thissen – I don’t feel so well… Integrating health checks in your .NET Core solutions

Tuesday, May 21 • 17:45 – 18:45

This session with Alex Thirssen about health check in .net Core project is for me the most interesting one. On Selot we often have problems with servers, services, etc. that suddenly don’t work anymore. I hope to learn about ways we could go about these problems in a more dynamic way by tracing them and fixing them rather than waiting hours to even get informed about what’s going on.

Our developer Mich recommends: Daniel Marbach – Knock. Knock. Who’s there? A message from the future

Wednesday, May 22 • 16:30 – 17:30

When you design your solutions with messaging in the back of your mind, you get way closer to the original business process. In business process modelling is the notion of time often a big hurdle. How do multiple triggers compare to each other? What if they don’t come together? These kinds of questions are often left unanswered. In Daniel’s session “Knock. Knock. Who’s there? A message from the future” I hope to find some answers. I think it’s going to be about an in-depth case study about how they resolved a specific technical problem using messaging, but not necessarily about modelling a business process. Anyways I hope to obtain a few new insights I can apply to my own problems

Last but not least; our own Johnny Hooyberghs – Building an educational game with .net Core & Unity3D.

Wednesday, May 22 • 13:45 – 14:45

From our own team we (of course) have to recommend Johnny. Stop by to hear what he has to say about building an educational game.
