Johnny Hooyberghs

Passionate Developer

Johnny Hooyberghs is a consultant for Involved since 2014 focusing on .NET architecture and backend development and a Microsoft MVP since 2020. Prior to joining Involved, he has had experience developing software for Corilus since 2008. He has been passionate about .NET ever since it was released and his areas of expertise are C#, .NET (Core), WCF, WinForms, WPF, ASP.NET (Core), Entity Framework (Core), Azure and ALM using the Microsoft Stack. Every now and then he enjoys doing some web development using JavaScript. Since 2010, Johnny spends some of his free time teaching .NET and C# for the adult education institute CVO Antwerpen. When he's not working or teaching, he likes some casual gaming, scuba diving, learning to play the piano, travelling the world and visiting as many theme parks as possible.

Current sessions

Controlling My Home Sauna Using .NET 6 and MAUI

Today, .NET can really run everywhere. Unfortunaltely, it doesn't run on a potato, I tried, but it runs pretty much anywhere else. Come see how I was able to completely modernize my sauna controller by using .NET on a Raspberry Pi with Gpio support, ASP.NET running in a Docker container on a Linux host and .NET running on an Android display and an Android phone using MAUI (.NET Multi-platform App UI).


Controlling My Home Sauna Using .NET 5 and Xamarin.Forms

Today, thanks to .NET 5, .NET can really run everywhere. In this session, I will show you how I was able to completely modernize my sauna controller by using .NET on a Raspberry Pi with Gpio support, ASP.NET running in a Docker container on a Linux host and .NET on Xamarin.Forms running on an Android tablet and an Android phone. All of this, automatically build and deployed using Azure DevOps pipelines. Finally, my wife can turn on the sauna, which is located outside in the garden, from the comfort of her living room and can see when it has reached its target temperature.


Microsoft Q# workshop

You've probably heard about Quantum Computing, but it still remains a mystery? In this deep-dive workshop, I will explain important concepts like qubits, superposition and entanglement. Theoretical knowledge about quantum physics, quantum gates and quantum algorithms will be combined with lots of hands-on experience on Microsoft Q#. Together, we will work from scratch, on easy examples like generating true random numbers thanks to superposition of qubits, quantum entanglement and quantum teleportation, but also existing quantum algorithms like Deutch.

Prerequisites:
- Visual Studio Code
- The Microsoft Quantum Development Kit (QDK)


What is new in .NET 6 and the future of .NET

November 2021 marks the release of .NET 6. In this session, I will talk about what is new in the latest version of .NET and what the future will bring for the .NET platform in general. What is the difference between .NET Framework, .NET Core and .NET 6? Expect a number of new features and examples of those features.


What is new in .NET 5 and the future of .NET

November 2020 marked the release of .NET 5. In this session, I will talk about what is new in the latest version of .NET and what the future will bring for the .NET platform in general. Expect a number of new features and examples of those features.


Microsoft Q# and Azure Quantum

You've probably heard about quantum computing, but it still remains a mystery? In this deep-dive session, I will explain important concepts like qubits, superposition, and entanglement. Theoretical knowledge about quantum physics, quantum gates, and quantum algorithms will be combined with some examples on Microsoft Q# and Azure Quantum.


What is new in .NET 5 and the future of .NET

November 2020 will mark the release of .NET 5. In this session, I will talk about what is new in the latest version of .NET and what the future will bring for the .NET platform in general.


Building Cloud Native applications with .NET 5

Building cloud-native applications and services that will run in the cloud, both public and private, is an important decision to make in order to achieve continuous delivery, reliability and faster time to market. In this session, we will talk about building cloud-native services for Azure, using the latest version of .NET. What are containers? What is all this Kubernetes talk? Should you use microservices for all your future projects? How do you manage your data? How do you implement logging, metrics and secret management? There will be slides and there will be lots of demos!


Building an educational game with .NET Core and Unity

If you are waiting for a deep dive into .NET Core, the Microsoft Compiler Platform and the unity game engine, this talk is for you! No high-level tech demos, but a real-life application that is used in schools. We will build an educational game, with robots fighting to the death, from scratch. This will include backend web services, a frontend Unity client to visualize the battle and middleware processing services using the Microsoft Compiler Platform (Roslyn). The point of this session is to show you how technology is evolved to make development easy and create useful applications in only one hour of hardcore coding!


Quantum Computing deep dive

You've probably heard of Quantum Computing, but it still remains a mystery? In this deep-dive session, I will explain important concepts like qubits, superposition and entanglement. Theoretical knowledge about quantum physics, quantum gates and quantum algorithms will be associated with practical examples using a real quantum computer on the IBM Q Experience and simulated using Microsoft Q# and Azure Quantum.


What is new in .NET Core 3 and the future of .NET

September 2019 marked the release of .NET Core 3. In this session, we will talk about what is new in the latest version of .NET Core and what the future will bring for the .NET platform in general.


SCRUM to reorganize your company?

As a software developer, you probably know how to work in a SCRUM team. What if you could use the same principles to create an agile organization? Sociocracy version 3, or S3 in short, is a free and flexible toolbox of guidelines and practices that can help you achieve greater effectiveness and wellbeing for your organization.
This personal story is about how S3 became the backbone of the organization I work for, and how it impacted my team and me over the short and long term.


Introduction to Worker Services in .NET Core 3.1

Since .NET Core 3.0, released in September 2019, we have access to the Worker Service template when creating new .NET Core projects. Thanks to this template, we are able to create truly platform-independent worker services that can be installed as a Windows Service on Windows, or as a Daemon on Linux. If you need to perform some continues background processing or need to extract, transform and load some data: Worker Services are at your disposal! In this session, Johnny will show you many examples of how to build these Worker Services and how to deploy them on Windows, Linux and using Docker containers.


Introduction to gRPC on .NET Core 3.1

Since .NET Core 3.0, released in September 2019, we have support for the HTTP/2 transport protocol in ASP.NET Core. On top of this, we can now use gRPC, a modern communication framework with high-performance. In this session, Johnny will talk about the benefits and the differences with other communication frameworks and show you C# examples on how to build both clients and services based on a service definition using proto3 files. .NET Core integrated build tools will generate the necessary client and service code to help you create your services fast!


Introduction to Quantum Computing

You've probably heard of Quantum Computing, but it still remains a mystery? In this introductory session, I will explain important concepts like qubits, superposition and entanglement. Theoretical knowledge about quantum physics, quantum gates and quantum algorithms will be associated with practical examples using a real quantum computer on the IBM Q Experience and simulated using Microsoft Q#.
