πŸ‘‰ Web performance monitoring with Eugenia Zigisova

Web performance monitoring is a good first step in bootstrapping the web performance culture in your organization. However, there are so many monitoring metrics like Time to First Byte, First Contentful Paint, First Input Delay, etc. It is easy to get overwhelmed!
During the talk we will speak about:
- Why monitoring is important?
- Which monitoring metrics to choose?
- How to measure, visualize, and analyze the data?

πŸ‘‰ Building Azure Static Web Apps

Over the last few years, Azure has expanded it’s serverless offerings including the introduction of Azure static web apps.

This hosting model provides lightweight, highly performant and scalable hosting that can be a great addition to your project but how do you get started and what options are available?

In this session, I will take you on a tour of Azure static web apps, look at why you would want to move existing applications and look at the JAM Stack that can be used to maximize the benefits of the platform.

πŸ‘‰ Let none survive! - How to test our unit tests with mutation testing

Executing the very short development cycle of test-driven development requires discipline and practice.
However, the .NET ecosystem offers us a wide variety of tools to support us in authoring a high-quality suite of unit tests, defending our production code against defects.
In this short session, Stefan is showing how mutation testing can further improve the effectiveness of C# test suites by testing our unit tests with mutation testing, and how to continuously integrate it with Azure Pipelines/GitHub Actions.
Let's kill some mutants!
