Developers choose to use .NET when building new and modernizing existing business applications for a variety of reasons including skills/knowledge, personal preference and existing portfolio/investment. In this session, Naveen (Travelers) and Zach (Pivotal) will share real-world experiences of migrating and modernizing .NET applications on Cloud Foundry.

Cloud computing encourages a new set of patterns and best practices, such as microservices, 12-factors, service registry, and circuit breakers, to name a few. Using tools like Steeltoe and Cloud Foundry, developing new greenfield .NET apps that embrace these cloud-native patterns has become relatively easy. On the other hand, migrating and modernizing existing brownfield .NET apps is the elephant in the room. Practices that developers commonly used in the past (e.g. dependencies on the registry, GAC, and local file system) have become cloud anti-patterns. From their experience developing and migrating .NET applications at Travelers, the speakers will share some of the challenges faced and lessons learned with a focus on delivering business value.

This session is for developers and architects who want to unlock business value in their existing .NET application portfolio by migrating and modernizing their apps on Cloud Foundry.
