When a new technology comes on the horizon, it's hard to resist the urge to want to migrate everything to it, but there are always many considerations. ASP.NET Core is an amazing new framework, which just so happens to also be one of the world's top 10 fastest frameworks clocking in at around 8X that of Node.js. This session will take you through an actual migration at Microsoft with an open source chat application that used SignalR, Entity Framework, Web Api, and MVC. The session will cover areas that gave Microsoft trouble, the process, and how they refactored and enhanced the migrated application.

You will learn:

  • When you should migrate
  • How to determine potential pain points
  • From the issues and migration process Microsoft faced
