February CINNUG Meeting

Tuesday February 28th, 2017 6 PM at Max Technical Training in Mason, OH

We welcome Brian Sherwin with "Visual Studio...What's Coming in 2017"

Every day, developers are faced with new challenges for assimilating technology, developing and deploying applications with ever newer technologies and changing architectural approaches. Visual Studio 2017 looks to streamline the flow of code to deployment from fundamental tasks like unit tests to challenging deployments in the cloud. In this talk we will look at what makes VS2017 a compelling choice for "Any Dev, Any App and Any Platform". From mobile to cloud, Game to Website, Windows to Mac, you can get just what you need to get the job done.
BIO: Brian Sherwin is a Technical Evangelist with Microsoft from Columbus, Ohio. He has been a consultant and trainer for over 19 years. One of his core passions is helping companies make decisions based on value and not a particular technology. When he’s not trying to figure out some new technology, he spends time reading, Scouting, and drinking enough coffee to keep up with his five kids.

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.

Pizza and drinks will be provided by our sponsors.
