November Meeting: Rethinking Business Rules – From Creation to Code

Join Pratt & Miller Engineering and us on Tuesday, November 27th, at 6:00 PM in the Redwood Conference Room (formerly named MPR or the Multi-Purpose Room) of the Microsoft Charlotte Office. If you work with business applications, you certainly have business rules. As obvious as it might sound, how you collect, write, and organize your rules go a long way in determining the success of your application. In this talk, we will take a look at business rules: where they come from, different ways we write them in code, and how we glue them together to make up an application. We will then look at how the move to serverless computing forces us to rethink how we write and compose our rules.

This talk is in C# and F# using Visual Studio and Azure.

The meeting presenter is 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, more recently, Python. Jamie now combines all four 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. 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 is a 4-time Microsoft MVP and the author of Mastering .NET Machine Learning.
