This is an exercise in polyglot programming. Come explore how you might solve a problem in three different programming languages, JavaScript, Ruby, and C# (or any other language you want to try).


We have entered the age of polyglot programming. It is no longer sufficient to know only C#, JavaScript, and SQL. Even if this wasn't the case, understanding the motivations and idioms of other languages will make you better in the language you primarily code in.


The North Dallas .NET Users Group is going through big changes in format and focus. We announced them at the April meeting and have posted the big ideas up on our about page.


One library to rule them all and in the compiler connect them. Microsoft has been promising this kind of shared code since the Framework fragmentation began. Now with .NET Standard, you can really write one library and multi-target for all the platforms you want.



Getting your app running with the basic data-bindings in place is only the first step. Aurelia provides the tools to create an experience your users will love, rather than just tolerate. Build a great data entry experience with Aurelia's powerful fluent validation plugin.


Quality is hard to define and even harder to achieve. Chris has spent the last 5 years working as a developer in a Quality role. This talk includes a philosophy on quality, lessons learned, tools, and techniques that can help you define and achieve quality in your code.


If you have ever considered teaching at a coding bootcamp, pondered starting one, or have wondered if hiring a graduate is a good idea, come for the discussion and bring your questions. For the last year and a half I've taught at a coding bootcamp called The Iron Yard.


Amazon's Alexa platform is taking the world by storm, helping empower smart homes around the world. But what many developers may not realize is that this is not a closed platform, in fact it has a thriving marketplace for programs, or Skills as Amazon calls them.



Today's enterprise cloud consumers have a difficult decision to make when deciding where to deploy their application workloads: AWS, Azure or both? Both platforms share many similar services but have critical differences that are important to understand.


Bring your laptop for this hands-on training! Functional Programming is the heart of many exciting new technologies including big data, microservices, the cloud, and a surprising number of familiar libraries. If you write C# or JavaScript code you are already functional programmer.


If customer facing issues are your top priority, then you already adhere to the primary principle of Exception Driven Development.


Features like async/await have often taken the spotlight away from other features in C# that are a lot more important for developer efficiency and productivity. This talk will be diving into some of the lesser-known features in C#, a language developed by Microsoft as part of its .

Microsoft has created a new base library for ASP.NET which powers all of ASP.NET MVC, but sometimes it is useful to take a step back and understand just the fundamentals. So in this talk we will review creating a basic web server with just ASP.


React is a JavaScript library for building modern user interfaces. It's often used in a node-based stack, but needn't be. You can build your next feature in React in your existing ASP.NET MVC application seamlessly.


These days, the SPA framework space is crowded. Aurelia stands out from its contemporaries in a few important ways. Creating components using vanilla Javascript classes, leveraging convention to minimize development overhead, and future-proofing for upcoming technologies like Web Components are just a few of the advantages Aurelia offers.
