Location:

TekSystems

1201 Edwards Mill Rd # 201 Raleigh NC

Registration and event details...

This is part 2, a continuation of last month's meeting. We will continue building our application to manage chores.

We'll be taking a nuts and bolts approach to learn about the fundamentals of what it takes to make a modern app work. By gradually building up the code for the components we'll understand why we do certain things that we often take for granted by just adding in a JavaScript library or frame work. Along the way we'll be taking a close look at the HTML, CSS, JavaScript, data behind the scenes.

We won't be digging into specific frameworks or libraries.

This will be hands-on so you are encouraged to bring your laptop. 

You will need a copy of Visual Studio 2013 or Visual Studio 2015. You can download the community edition of Visual Studio 2015 for free.

https://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/products/visual-studio-community-vs.aspx

You will need:

• The source code for the lab, either download this zip: 

• https://github.com/kstreith/ChoreApp/archive/session2-start.zip

• Or clone the GitHub repository: 

• https://github.com/kstreith/ChoreApp 

You will also need a web browser, I've tested: Chrome, Firefox and IE9 or later 

Please download all the resources ahead of time since the location may not have internet and so that we can utilize our time effectively. Thanks!

Speaker Bio: Kip Streithorst is a Senior Software Engineer working for Applied Information Sciences in Raleigh. He spends most of his day working with Javascript but also uses ASP.NET MVC for back-end services. When not programming, he enjoys spending time with his wife and two daughters.

Didn’t get your golden ticket to //Build/? Couldn’t get the time off from work to go to San Francisco? Don’t have the bandwidth to wade through all 500+ hours of content on Channel 9? No problem, Jamie Dixon has you covered. In this talk, we will look at the highlights from //Build/, Microsoft’s premier developer conference that occurred last month. We will pick through at all of the announcements, sessions, and labs to find all of the stuff you should care about as a Microsoft developer. In addition, Jamie will give you the DL (“down low” for those of you without a teenager) on all of the hallway and happy hour conversations that he had with the Microsoft teams.

Presenter: Jamie Dixon

Jamie Dixon has been writing code for as long as he can remember and has been getting paid to do it since 1995. He was using C# and Javascript almost exclusively until discovering F# and now combines all three languages for the problem at hand. He has a passion for discovering overlooked gems in data sets and merging software engineering techniques to scientific computing. When he codes for fun, he spends his time using Phidgets, Netduinos, and Raspberry Pis or spending time in Kaggle competitions using F# or R.

Jamie has a BSCS in Computer Science and a Masters in Public Health. He is the former Chair of his town's Information Services Advisory Board and is an outspoken advocate for Open Data. He also is involved with his local .NET User Group (TRINUG) with an emphasis on data analytics, machine learning, and the internet of things (IoT). He is the author of Mastering .NET Machine Learning,

Jamie lives in Cary, North Carolina with his wonderful wife Jill and their three awesome children: Sonoma, Sawyer, and Sloan. He blogs weekly at jamessdixon.wordpress.com and can be found on Twitter @jamie_dixon

Docker Hack Night


Join us for a night of fun getting your hands dirty with Docker.

Are you completely new to Docker?
Are you a Docker veteran and willing to help others?

If you are one or the other, or somewhere in between this event is for you! We’ll start with a quick demo to get the night started but after that this BYOL (Bring Your Own Laptop) event will be about seeing what you can hack together using docs, the web, and help from others. We’ll close the night with a quick show and tell of people’s adventures.
