February 2022


Our next monthly meeting will be held on Tuesday, January 25th at 6 pm.  

New Location

We are meeting at TechElevator Cincinnati in the first-floor conference room. 

1776 Mentor Ave
Cincinnati, OH 45212

Source Generators

Source Generators were added to the compilation pipeline starting with .NET 5. Source code generation is nothing new so what are C# Source Generators, how do they work, and when would you want to write one? We will walk through writing several simple generators, discuss possible use cases and limitations, and touch on related Roslyn APIs.

About our speaker: Eric Smith

Eric is a consultant with Strategic Data Systems in Sharonville, Ohio working on the .NET project team. He is a 2017 graduate of MAX Technical Training's .NET Bootcamp and previously received a masters degree in German Studies from the University of Cincinnati in 2014. He has been tinkering with writing software since the mid-90s and still enjoys writing directly against hardware whenever the opportunity arises. Outside of computing, he spends most of his time reading, working in his machine shop, and endurance cycling.  

Next Month


Pizza, drinks and conversation will follow our speaker!

As usual, after we wrap our pizza break we will be holding another CINARC (Cincinnati Software Architecture Group). This session will feature more discussion on topics chosen the night of the meeting. The focus of the meeting will be to discuss issues of software architecture relevant to the members of the community.

Sponsors Needed!

As we are back in person, we are looking for sponsors to help pay for the food (plus web hosting, newsletter provider, and legal).
