June User Group Meetings

  • Comments 0

The NJ MS Developers group already met on June 1st to see Keith Pijanowski’s session on Windows Communication Foundation.  But the month of June isn’t over yet!  Many Microsoft developers are attending TechEd in Boston this week, but there’s still some great stuff for the rest of us!   Check out the topics and links below for details on this month’s user group meetings in Jersey, NYC, and Philly. 

This week’s meetings:

Note: The NJ Enterprise VB user group will be skipping this month’s meeting due to TechEd.  But next month will feature Sam Gentile on WCF!

Northern NJ .NET User Group (N3UG) - Tuesday June 13, 2006

Where: SetFocus Office - Parsippany, NJ
When: 6:00pm - 8:30pm

.NET Remoting in VS 2005 – Kevin Goff, Common Ground Solutions

In this presentation Kevin will construct a small but meaningful remoting application from scratch. It stresses the fundamental value of interfaces in a distributed environment. It also covers some of the enhancements to remoting in VS2005, such as secure TCP remoting and serializing datasets in a binary format. It also demonstrates how .NET generics can be applied to remoting interfaces.

This session appeals to developers with varying levels of experience. It covers remoting fundamentals and basic structure of distributed applications – so there is an element of “demystifying” .NET remoting. It also appeals to intermediate level developers with different techniques in VS2005.

Performance Troubleshooting in .NET – Brian Frantz, Solvepoint 

Brian will discuss common issues and tools related to troubleshooting performance issues in .NET applications. He will do a PowerPoint presentation that will be interspersed with example code and tool demonstrations. The goal is to equip developers with the basic tools and knowledge needed to find and correct common performance issues.

Service-Oriented Design using the Windows Communication Foundation – Sam Gentile

The term SOA has become ubiquitous in our industry. Unfortunately that has lead to massive hype that makes it difficult to understand and distinguish the real value of adapting SOA principles. In my judgment, the definition suffers from technology centric views that are based on the technology environment currently in use.

Sam will concentrate on the Design Patterns that distinguish Service Orientatation and how to apply them to your designs. Upon these principles, we look at their real-world implementation in WCF ("Indigo") and using WCF for real world demos giving a through overview of WCF.

Central New Jersey .NET User Group - Thursday June 22, 2006

Where: Infragistics Office - East Windsor, NJ
When: 6:15pm - 8:30pm

SQL Reporting Services – Bill Wolff, Agility Systems

Bill is a busy guy this month.  He’ll be hosting the Philly.NET group Wednesday night, heading up the turnpike to Exit 8 for the Central Jersey meeting, and then dashing back to Malvern for the Philadelphia Code Camp on Saturday!  With all of that going on, he didn’t get a chance to post a description of the session up on the web-site.  But don’t miss out on this meeting.  Bill is a true expert in the field and he will be sure to give a good talk!
