Lightning talks is a fantastic way to introduce our community to developers and allow developers the capability to share their passion. Community members have 5-15 minutes to present on a topic relating to .NET development. We give preference to new speakers to help strengthen and grow our community.
Sure, you know you’re supposed to be using version control for your code, but what does that really look like? Is it the same for a single developer as it is for a team? What about local vs distributed?
I’ll share some different workflows for personal, work, and community projects, along with tips on how to avoid some common pitfalls.
Lightning Talks are a really fun event we put on every 3 months. Community members have 5 to 10 minutes to talk about .NET or topics related to .NET technologies. We give preference to new speakers to strengthen our community.
We still need Speakers! Please contact Matthew Reily if you are interested in this opportunity.
What is this IoT thing I keep hearing about? How can I get started making these “things”? If you have a desire to tinker with stuff and make them blink, move, and respond to physical inputs plus love you some.NET, then this talk is for you. We will go over what IoT is and how you can use your .NET skills to get started immediately. We will discuss the Netduino micro controller and what it can do for us in our projects. This talk will also give a quick intro into Azure websites and how we can leverage them in with our devices. We will also go into a brief discussion of the .NET micro framework and some of the limitations you might encounter. This talk will include several demos of projects using the .NET micro framework, Netduino devices, and Azure services and more
Web development was a different game back in the early 2000s. Early versions of ASP.NET were aimed at Microsoft’s existing customer base, and even tried to hide the nature of the web from developers who weren’t ready for it. Gradually, the ASP.NET team began to open up, shipping open-source components and eventually open-sourcing much of the ASP.NET platform. The next version of ASP.NET goes even further, providing explicit support for development and hosting on non-Windows platforms. Come see how you can take advantage of the robust and full-featured ASP.NET platform while still using the tools you love: OS X, Sublime, Vim, and others.
This is our 1st Installment of Community Lightning Talks. Never heard of a lightning talk? Here is what’s up:
Lightning Talks are really fun. They are an open forum where our members can get up and talk about what they want. The talks need to be short - generally 5-10 minutes. You can cover anything that is .NET, or related to .NET. You can talk about a problem you’ve solved, a tool you like, a cool blog post you read, something you’re working on now, or pretty much any other way you’re using .NET to achieve your goals.
