WORKSHOP : Modernizing Legacy Applications
Are you looking to migrate and modernise legacy Windows applications before the Windows Server 2008 End of Support? In this workshop, we will take a deep dive into modernising a legacy .NET 2.0 application with a SQL Server 2005 database backend. We'll introduce key Habitat concepts, such as the plan file, the Habitat Studio, and the BLDR depot.

You will leave with a deeper knowledge of how to take a legacy application and remove dependencies on the underlying operating system, allowing you to migrate to supported and more secure infrastructure.

Pre Requisites
Attendees do not require any prior knowledge of Habitat, or of .NET applications. Remote workstations will be provided - you will need a laptop with Remote Desktop installed in order to connect to these.

WORKSHOP : Building and deploying .NET applications with Chef Habitat and Azure Pipelines
In this deeply technical hands-on workshop, we will "skip ahead" to life beyond legacy migrations and discuss the tools and techniques used to build modern .NET Core apps using the Azure DevOps platform.

We will focus on building an ASP.NET application and look at the options and platforms available for building and managing the application once it has been deployed, including containerisation. We'll study the new Build and Release capabilities of Azure Pipelines and discuss the workflow of designing and building a CI system suitable for your enterprise as well as integrating Chef Habitat into the workflow.

Attendees will leave with an improved understanding of how .NET applications are built, deployed and can be continuously updated in production when combined with the powerful operational capabilities of Chef Habitat.

Attendees do not need Azure or .NET knowledge before attending this workshop but it would be useful to familiarise themselves with some of the terminology (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/devops/user-guide/services?view=azure-devops and https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/guides/developer/azure-developer-guide are two useful guides worth reading).
