Event Details

Join North East Bytes for the first event in our brand new home! We're very happy to be running our events at Campus North in the heart of Newcastle from this month. The format of our events won't be changing (but there will be added beer!).

We're welcoming a brand new speaker for our brand new venue. This sounds like a great session from Mark Thompson:

Communications enable your software quickly and easily with Twillio (Mark Thompson)

For the uninitiated Twillio is an on-line service that makes it easy add support for SMS and phone calls to your web/ mobile apps.

Using a few lines of code you can have your application up and running, sending/recieving SMS messages or even making telephone calls for you.

Yes really! No hardware needed, no SIM cards and certainly no need to run any new cables to your premises!

During this talk I'll demonstrate how easy it is to get up and running with Twillio:

  • Get a UK landline number with the area code of your choice for $1 a month
  • Enable SMS based two factor authentication for your apps - Because we all know how secure email is...!
  • Respond to an SMS message
  • Respond to a telephone call
  • Build your own PBX (i.e. Telephone menu and multi user voicemail) in under half an hour.

We'll be writing code, mainly C#, with a dash of PHP in places and probably some good old ASP MVC too.

Everything I demonstrate will be easily ported to the language of your choice.

Mark is a Software Development Team Lead who has worked on software projects from Military Communications to printing best before dates on ready meals. He favours the Microsoft Technology Stack, C#, MVC and Team Foundation Server, and is a Certified Scrum Master and Professional.

When he isn't ranting about code or Scrum he is trying to convince his two young daughters software development is cool.

Session 2: Azure Service Bus (Michael Stephenson)

In this session we will look at an introduction to the Azure Service Bus and its capabilities to deliver low cost massive scale messaging.  We will also look at some demo's of how to use the service bus and some real world use cases.

 

Michael Stephenson is a UK based integration and cloud specialise who has worked with many consultancies and customers building hybrid integration solutions using Microsoft technologies such as BizTalk & Azure. Michael is also a Pluralsight trainer and blogger on integration and architecture related topics. Michael has been a Microsoft MVP for 6 years.

Date: Wednesday 15th July 2015

We look forward to seeing you at Campus North on the 15th!
