I'll spend 30-40 minutes covering our implementation while mixing in some of the philosophical underpinnings of Lean including flow, pull, and standard work. We'll transition into an open discussion about emerging Lean practices with an emphasis on why you should care, how to get started, and highlighting resources I've found useful in learning, developing, and applying Lean Software Development practices.

  • Wednesday, September 17, 2008 7:00 PM: Enabling SharePoint Authentication Against DotNetNuke - You probably already know that you can setup SharePoint to authenticate via Forms Based Authentication and better yet using the AspNet Membership and Role providers as its back-end. You probably also know that DotNetNuke also uses the AspNet Membership as its default provider. In theory, SharePoint and DotNetNuke could share *one* central membership store. In this session, Antonio Chagoury will take you from theory to practice by setting up SharePoint to use DotNetNuke's database as the Membership Provider. Antonio will also go into some *gotchas* with the Role Provider, and provide tips and tricks for making it all work.

  • Thursday, September 18, 2008 6:30 PM: Charlottesville .NET User Group September Meeting - Controlling AJAX when you're out of control by G. Andrew Duthie While implementing and troubleshooting AJAX functionality in an application is rarely easy, it gets even harder when you don't have complete control over the site where you have to implement it. Shared hosting environments, blog accounts on large blog sites, etc. are situations where you may have only limited control over where and when your javascript gets loaded and executed. In this talk, Microsoft developer evangelist G. Andrew Duthie will walk you through some examples of how you can overcome limitations on such sites, and how to troubleshoot some of the inevitable issues you may run into. Some basic understanding of javascript and AJAX is assumed.
