Blake will discuss his experiences building and maintaining a smart home. Starting from nothing to having a fully automated house can be overwhelming. We’ll cover many topics like choosing future proof products (usability, security, etc..), dealing with contractors, keeping a happy spouse with ever changing automations and much more.
DevOps, .NET, Azure and all of the automation involved for a complete DevOps environment can be daunting. In this talk, Jeffrey Palermo provides prescriptive guidance for developers to fall into the "pit of success" when creating automated DevOps pipelines for complex .NET apps targeting Azure.
Ever wanted to write mobile apps for iPhones and Android? Maybe you found Objective-C/Swift or Java/Kotlin intimidating? Or maybe you tried it with Xamarin but just thought it kind of meh? I feel you! It’s hard to get started. It’s confusing.
This month we are once again hosting two events, one for adults, and one for kids. Both will involved the micro:bit. The micro:bit is a business card sized computer. This tiny computer will allow you to learn how code while having tons of fun.
Helping people learn is fun for us and useful for them. It's also a very effective way to advance your career. Many higher-level development leadership roles expect you to be able to help other developers improve. You can mentor in several ways (e.g.
ASP.NET Core 3.0 contains new features for building modern web applications and services. In this session, we'll show you how to use ASP.NET Core 3.0 to build full-stack solutions using the latest versions of C# and the .net Core 3.0 Framework.
In this meeting, David L. Penton will discuss creating and running .NET Core apps that compile and run on both Mac and Windows, some basics of .NET Core, the .NET Core CLI, and different deployment models (framework dependent vs. self-contained deployments).
When Amir was a kid, his first introduction to programming was through building games using VB6. You may have a similar story of coding for the first time, making some form of digital interactive media.
Elasticsearch and Kibana are easily my most favorite tools that I've started using over the last year. I want to show you how to use them. Elasticsearch is an easy-to-use distributed full-text search and analytics engine.
In the last meeting we practiced CSS layout, discussed how the display property works, and learned how to use floats effectively. In this session we will discuss Flexbox, a newer way to do CSS layout. This is a hands-on activity, so bring you computer. Be ready to code.
CSS Layout can be a bit difficult at times, but with a little guided practice you can learn the principles and start effectively using CSS to layout your web pages today. And in this session, guided practice is exactly what we are going to do.
