As .NET developers show increasing interest in core and new features, complementary technologies, and best practices, dotnet Cologne ends up fully booked each year. Its formula is simply unbeatable: one entire day for workshops, May 4th, and a second day for lectures and exhibitions, May 5th. The co-organizers, Bonn-to-Code.Net and .net user group Cologne, who already arrange regular meetups for .NET enthusiasts, are injecting new momentum into the great debate.
Once again, Wibu-Systems is a proud platinum sponsor of the event and committed to delivering a 360° experience for the vibrant .NET community. Speaking the language of the developers, our security professionals will be available both on stage and at our corner booth to discuss the ever-evolving scenarios of Microsoft’s successful open-source cross-platform software framework.
In his lecture on Subscription Models for Software – What is their value and how to implement them, Stefan Bamberg, our Senior Key Account and Partner Manager, will explain why subscription models are enjoying rapidly growing popularity. Software vendors have come to see them as an automatic cash machine, while, for the user, they represent full flexibility in their loyalty to the vendor. However, not all license and maintenance subscription models are born equal. Some relate to the renting of the software, others to updates. The presentation will compare the revenue potential and risks of several subscription models, analyze the software vendors’ and users’ points of view, and demonstrate an implementation of CodeMeter License Central with the e-commerce solution from CleverBridge. At the end of the session, attendees will have important takeaways like: What should I implement as a developer? When is it worthwhile to use ready-made solutions? And how can I integrate ready-made solutions into my software?
In his additional lightning talk, Licensing Made Easy with CodeMeter, Stefan will offer a brief introduction into the world of secure licensing. Every software developer knows the challenge: How can I sell my application without putting too much effort into building a home-grown licensing platform? Constant security updates and a versatile licensing mechanism make all the difference.
Wibu-Systems is unique in its dedication to creating top-performance protection mechanisms and delivering the most flexible license lifecycle management solutions for the complete monetization of your software. The .NET developer ecosystem can enjoy a dedicated CodeMeter module, powered by AxProtector .NET. In addition, the revolutionary Blurry Box encryption method, winner of the 2014 German IT Security Award, provides new opportunities for debate and experimentation.
