Topic: AppGet Package Manager

We've all heard the buzz words. Microservices, serverless architecture, continuous integration and deployments, but what do they actually look like in the real world? In this talk I'll pop the hood of AppGet's server code and show you what makes it tick...literally (we have a tick microservice!). I'll talk about things we did that failed and things that didn't and what we learned from both.

We'll even do a live deployment and follow the bits from my laptop all the way to production.

About AppGet: AppGet ( is a moderated, open source package / application manager which focuses on security, automation and ease-of-use. You can Install or update over 800 applications using either command line or one-click install directly from the gallery. AppGet is what Windows Store wished it was :)
