Developer Community Newsletter: March Edition


The latest Guild news, events, and developer community announcements for March 2015: Kendo ❤ Angular and Community Calendar – Developer Community Newsletter: March Edition.

Around the first of every month, I collate the latest Enterprise Developers Guild news, events, and developer community announcements into an awesome little newsletter. I call it the Developer Community Newsletter (hence the ingenious name, don’t you think?). If you subscribe (to the Guild mailing list), I’ll hand-deliver it to your inbox too!

Ruby on Rails with Paula Paul


Join me and the Enterprise Developers Guild on Tuesday, February 24, at 6:00 PM in the Multi-Purpose Room (MPR) of the Microsoft Charlotte Office. The Rails framework was first released nine years ago. Over the years, it has gotten traction with web developers and enjoys a large and active community. Just earlier this month, Microsoft announced that you can run Ruby on Rails (or anything else, really) on IIS8 with the new HttpPlatformHandler. If you are an ASP.NET developer, or just someone who has wondered, “What’s the deal with Rails?”, please join us for a look at Ruby on Rails from a .NET perspective.

Paula Paul was one of the first 1000 people to earn an MCSD certification in C# during her early consulting days in Boston. She’s been kicking around Charlotte for a few years since joining Microsoft Consulting Services as an ‘App Dev’ consultant in 2001 to work with enterprise customers on .NET adoption. Paula has donned many hats and toolchains since then. When she’s not home with programmer and husband Bob and their two boys, Paula consults and teaches a Ruby on Rails immersion course for Tech Talent South.

MongoDB with Joe Feser


Join me and the Enterprise Developers Guild on Tuesday, January 27, at 6:00 PM in the Multi-Purpose Room (MPR) of the Microsoft Charlotte Office. Joe Feser, Senior Developer from Logical Advantage, will discuss MongoDB with us. In this talk Joe will go over what is involved in setting up MongoDB on Windows and what is involved in working with it in C#. He will discuss: how to serialize / deserialize objects, how to query the data, and how to configure databases and containers (“tables”). Joe will show what an e-commerce ordering system would look like in MS SQL Server and compare how it would look in MongoDB, including sample code. Joe will show how to create object structures for quick get and set operations. He will wrap up by discussing a few best practices and the challenges of migrating to MongoDB from SQL Server including searching and indexing.

With over 16 years of experience with Microsoft technologies, Joe Feser has worked on a vast array of challenging projects. He works at Logical Advantage on a wide variety of technologies including HTM5, Knockout.js, Silverlight, and SQL Server. In 2008, he moved to Greenville, SC from Cleveland, OH to work for NCover. Since then, Joe has worked on a free timing profiler and many open source projects. He also spend a lot of time working with Windows Azure using the Service Bus, SQL and Compute technologies. You can follow him on Twitter at @joefeser.

The meeting is sponsored by TEKsystems.
