CINNUG

Tuesday May 23rd, Max Technical Training in Mason, OH

6pm at our monthly CINNUG meeting, we welcome Joe Wirtley with "Building concurrent systems with Akka.NET"

Building concurrent systems is challenging. Code that is innocuous when run on a single thread can require a tangle of locking when running on multiple threads. One way to address this problem is leveraging the actor model. Akka.NET implements the actor model and is ideal for developing concurrent, scalable, and fault tolerant applications in .NET. In this session, you will see code to create actors, send messages to actors, and handle messages within actors. You will also learn about advanced capabilities of Akka.NET including routing, location transparency, persistence, and clustering. You will leave with ideas of how you might use Akka.NET in your own projects and resources to continue your exploration.

BIO: Joe Wirtley is an independent consultant who has been creating software for over twenty-five years. He works with .NET development teams on both desktop (WPF) and web (ASP.NET, JavaScript, Web API) applications. He is an active member of the developer community in southwest Ohio and helps lead the Dayton .NET Developer Group. He has presented at many user groups and conferences including CodeMash, Code PaLOUsa, CodeStock, and Stir Trek. He is the author of the Generics in .NET screencast for O'Reilly. You can check out his site at http://WirtleyConsulting.com or follow him on Twitter: @JoeWirtley.

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.

April CINNUG Meeting

Tuesday April 25th, 2017 6 PM at Max Technical Training in Mason, OH

We welcome Lee Brandt with "Dockerize Your .NET Development Environment"

It works on my machine. We’ve all heard it. Most of us have said it. It’s been impossible to get around it… until now. Not only can Docker-izing your .NET development environment solve that issue, but it can make it drop-dead simple to onboard new developers, keep a team working forward and allow everyone on the team use their desired tools! 
I will show you how to get Docker set up to use as the run environment for your .NET projects, how to maintain the docker environment, and even how easy it will be to deploy the whole environment to production in a way that you are actually developing in an environment that isn’t just “like” production. It IS the production environment!
You will learn the basics of Docker, how to use it to develop and how deploy your “development” environment as the production environment!
 

BIO: After almost two decades writing software professionally (and a few years unprofessionally before that), Lee Brandt still continues to learn every day. He has led teams in small and large companies and always manages to keep the business needs at the forefront of software development efforts. He speaks internationally about software development, from both a technical and business perspective, and loves to teach others what he learns.

Lee is a decorated Gulf War veteran, a husband, a proud pet parent and loves to play the drums whenever he gets any spare time.

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.

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.
