Riviera Dev/JUDCon: Riviera 2017 Recap

I returned late Sunday night from a trip to the south of France, where I was privileged to speak about Microservices, OpenShift, and how to do it all on Node.js. The conference was RivieraDev/JUDCon: Riviera 2017 and took place in Sophia Antipolis, near Nice, Cannes, St. Tropez and other fabulous Mediterranean cities on the southeastern coast of France.

October 2016 ISO C Meeting Report

Trip Report: October 2016 WG14 Meeting

In October 2016, I attended the WG14 (C language committee) meeting in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The meeting was hosted by the Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT) at the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). We had 25 representatives from 18 organizations in attendance, including CERT, Cisco, IBM, INRIA, Intel, LDRA, Oracle, Perennial, Plum Hall, Siemens, and the University of Cambridge. It was a productive four days spent on two major areas:

  • Work on C11 defect reports aimed at the upcoming C11 Technical Corrigendum (TC) expected to be finalized in 2017. This will be the last revision of C11 to be published. The next revision of C will be a “major” version that is for the time being referred to as C2X.
  • Review of proposals for the next revision of C, C2X. To meet the TC 2017 schedule some C11 defects will have to be deferred to C2X. The C2X charter is in N2086.

Below is a list of some of the interesting C2X proposals the group discussed.

It’s a wrap! dotnetConf 2016 Japan

If you are not already familiar with it, dotnetConf 2016 was an online event about .NET, and it was announced at this event that .NET Core RTM would be released at 6/27, at Red Hat Summit in San Francisco.

There are several .NET meetups called dotnetConf.local, of which dotnetConf 2016 Japan is one such event. I had the pleasure of giving a session about .NET Core on Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

This event was held with the cooperation of Japan C# User Group (JCUG), Japan Xamarin User Group(JXUG), Microsoft MVPs and many .NET developers. Ιt was raining at that day, but lots of .NET developers came to watch the live streaming take place — live.


The recorded session is available on youtube, but the almost session is Japanese. If you happen to speak Japanese, then watch away! But if you are looking for english sessions, you’ll find one at (2:52:00~3:38:00) in the recording below.

Here are the sessions that were given and recorded, and some comments about each one. All the session speakers are pioneers for .NET Core, and they absolutely love .NET. I’m thankful to be a part of this group, and to have been offered the chance to speak. Stay tuned to the Red Hat Developers blog, as I’m going to follow up with materials from my sessions, and write more articles in this blog that cover various topics about .NET technologies
