Apps Camp includes an interesting mix of presentation on best practices, emerging techniques, recent research and case studies regarding open source technologies.

Routing Performance Analysis and Improvements

Performance improvement is a difficult task, and Swetha hopes to impart the practices and skills gained from working on the Cloud Foundry Router (written in Go). She will guide developers by showing how her team selected a few areas to improve on as well as the tools they used, and developed to aid in our process. Some of those include pprof, and jupyter notebooks. Developers will leave the talk with a better understanding of how to analyze performance, detect key areas in need of improvement, as well as thinking about performance as a first class citizen.

Multi-targeting the World: A Single Project to Rule Them All

Into to creating single and multi-targeted .NET Standard class libraries using the new "SDK-style" project system. We'll recap what .NET Standard, what problems it solves, and how to get started. Next, we’ll dive into some of the new capabilities of the “SDK-style” project type, show how to consolidate projects that need to target multiple platforms into a single project and easily create a NuGet package for the library. Finally, we’ll demonstrate how to convert an older class library into a .NET Standard library.
