Thank You Parag Joshi

CINNUG would like to thank Parag Joshi for presenting on "Digital Payments in a Mobile World" in August.


Tuesday September 26th, Max Technical Training in Mason, OH

6pm at our monthly CINNUG meeting, we welcome James Bender with "Async JS"

Client-side JavaScript development has become more and more popular over the past few years and shows no signs of slowing down. Many developers are making their way from being focused on more traditional platforms like Java and .NET and are learning how to write great front-end applications with JavaScript and frameworks like Angular, React or Aurelia. As many of these developers begin writing more and more complex JavaScript. They are finding that, in many areas, JavaScript is like nothing they have worked with before. One of those areas is asynchronous programming. Many developers find asynchronous programming intimidating, but JavaScript is so dependent on it. The good news is that it’s easier than you think it is.

In this session, you’ll learn why asynchronous development is so critical to creating a great JavaScript application. You’ll learn how concurrency works in a little differently in JavaScript then you might be used to, and see some patterns to help you deal with even the most complex asynchronous situations. You'll see that asynchronous JavaScript is an easy and effective way to create great and responsive JavaScript applications.


James has worked as a developer and architect on everything from small, single-user applications to Enterprise-scale, multi-user systems. His specialties are .NET development and architecture, TDD, Web Development and JavaScript. James is a Microsoft MVP, ASP.NET Insider and author of the book "Professional Test Driven Development with C#: Developing Real World Applications with TDD." His new book "Developing SPAs: Working with Visual Studio, Angular and ASP.NET Web API" will be out in 2017. James's Twitter ID is JamesBender.

Pizza and drinks will be provided by our sponsors.

Immediately following the main speaker and pizza 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.
