Tales from the trenches: Building a distributed system with Aspire and Dapr

.NET Aspire and Dapr, they sounds similar, they certainly have overlapping features, but they each bring their strengths to the challenges of building distributed applications.

We have been building a distributed application using these two technologies for the better part of the year now. In this session I will share our successes and our failures. By the end you will have a good idea whether or not this combination, or just one of the two technologies, are a good fit for your project.

We will learn about service discovery, containerization, tracing, logging and much more. So get ready for a session filled to the brink with great distributed stuff!
