Meeting: NodeJS for .Net Developers

NodeJS for .Net Developers

We can’t write beautiful, dynamic, interactive websites and web apps without JavaScript, and we can’t do much with JavaScript without learning NodeJS. This will be a gentle introduction to NodeJS made for people who mostly write C#. I’ll guide you past some of the trickiest hurdles to understanding how NodeJS fits into the .Net ecosystem. Learn the answers to questions like:

  • What is NodeJS?
  • If I’m writing web apps in C# using ASP.Net MVC or ASP.Net Core, why do I need NodeJS?
  • How do I get started using it?
  • Does it coexist with my .Net code?

Speaker: Floyd May

Floyd is, through and through, a programmer at heart. He began programming at age 9 drawing pictures with the Logo programming language, and has been in love with programming ever since. His development background includes both native and web UIs, high-performance server logic, intricate multithreaded network I/O, and big data processing. Floyd has created software for many industries: precision agriculture, GIS, finance, commodities trading, oil & gas, digital imaging, document intelligence, and more. The software he has built has expanded his employers’ market penetration, earned millions in sales, revolutionized user experience, and crushed competitors. A passionate teacher, Floyd frequently presents at Tulsa area user groups and conferences, and is among Tulsa’s strongest advocates for the craft of software development.

Slaying the Performance Dragon with Elasticsearch

Is your Performance Dragon hiding treasures like response time and fuzzy matching? Does your gear include a large database with a particularly large table with a particularly large amount of data? Has the dragon ever sat on your server and brought your entire system down? If so, come join us on an adventure!

In this talk, we will explore a real problem that was crippling performance for our production apps, as well as how we found and implemented a solution in .NET, using AWS and ElasticSearch.

Meeting: Diving Into the Core (.NET Core)

Monday

Aug 1st, 2016

11:30 am

Diving Into the Core (.NET Core)

.NET Core is a general purpose development platform maintained by Microsoft and the .NET community on GitHub. It is cross-platform, supporting Windows, macOS and Linux, and can be used in device, cloud, and embedded/IoT scenarios.

This will be a guided tour that starts with the .NET Core and answers the why, how, and what. We will discuss how it fits in the overall ecosystem and touch on some of the application models that have been built on top of it.

We will then build a simple .NET Core application and explore the new dotnet cli. We will also cover adding unit tests and running our application from the command line. After our code is written and tested we will add it to a remote repository and explore how easy it is to build and run on other operating systems.
