June Meeting: Test & Attack – The Art, Science, and Myth of Performance Testing

Join LendingTree and us on Tuesday, June 27, at 6:00 PM in the Multi-Purpose Room (MPR) of the Microsoft Charlotte Office. What is involved in performance testing or application optimization testing? What role can a developer play in the load testing phase? For that matter, what exactly is “load” testing and why should you care? What conditions should you wrap around your testing efforts? How did improper requirements almost doom one of the most famous aircraft in United States Military history? In this presentation, Geoff Gray will answer all of these questions and much more. You will learn how Santa Claus was able to reach millions of kids. How a leading audit company was able to keep a 7 TB switch at sustained 35% saturation in a test lab. How Microsoft and 323 Studios teamed up to simulate 2 million kids playing Halo Reach the day it was released. How Walt Disney World was able to keep their buses running from the airport to the Magic Kingdom on schedule. And other tales of testing success.

You will also learn about the ugly side. How a poorly-tested major eCommerce site ended up failing and costing the customer millions of dollars. How changing a single property in a test caused two weeks of results to be thrown out and a major bug in the application exposed. How pre-conceived notions can ruin the best testing efforts. And a few other horrors that you will have to hear to believe.

The meeting presenter is Geoff Gray.

He has a B.S. in Computer and Electrical Engineering and has been working (or playing) with computers since 1979.

May Meeting: Authentication in Angular

Join Signature Consultants and us on Tuesday, May 23, at 6:00 PM in the Multi-Purpose Room (MPR) of the Microsoft Charlotte Office. Most modern applications require security. However, single page applications (SPAs) introduce unique challenges when it comes to authentication. In general, traditional session-based authentication isn’t a good fit for stateless SPAs. A better approach is to use OAuth tokens provided by a security token service. In this talk, we are going to look at how to build Angular applications that use token-based authentication. Our security token service will be running IdentityServer, an OpenID Connect provider and OAuth 2.0 server framework for ASP.NET.

The meeting presenter is Mark Wilson.

April Meeting: Creating Robust Architecture Using Angular & ASP.NET Core Web API

Join TEKsystems and us on Tuesday, April 25, at 6:00 PM in the Multi-Purpose Room (MPR) of the Microsoft Charlotte Office. Modern web applications built today typically consist of various technologies used to deliver the final solution. Over the last several of months, there have been significant new developments both in front-end frameworks for building single page applications as well as back-end frameworks designed for applications hosted in the cloud. In this session, we will explore using ASP.NET Core to host a Web API that provides services to an Angular (2+) single page application. As a developer, you will take away from this session a solid understanding of how to design a modern web application using these technologies.

March Meeting: Distributed Office – Manager and Developer Perspectives

Join AccruePartners and us on Tuesday, March 28, at 6:00 PM in the Multi-Purpose Room (MPR) of the Microsoft Charlotte Office. The digital nomad life is getting more relevant by the day. If you haven’t dealt with remote work in some fashion, it is probably right around the corner. Many companies are offering remote work as a major perk over competitors, and if you aren’t open to it, you may find it harder to recruit developers in the future. In this unique presentation, we have two different perspectives represented.

First, Glenn will focus on the Manager / Business owner experience of transitioning from an office where all employees worked every day to an environment now where everyone works remotely. Web Station first dealt with this eight years ago and slowly migrated to a 100% distributed, and at times, global workforce. Glenn will touch on the initial fears of remote employees and then the realities of this transformation over the years.

Next, Nick will focus on the developer experience, both as a remote developer and someone who leads a team of remote developers while being the most remote of them all. Nick will illustrate the pros and cons of working remotely from a personal standpoint as well as the tools and processes developed over eight years of an ever increasingly remote development team. There are unique challenges, but the pros outweigh the cons and Nick will demonstrate what has worked well for Web Station.

The meeting presenters are Glenn Boothe and Nick Spiers.

Glenn is originally from Upstate New York where he studied Mathematics and Physics at SUNY Oswego and graduated in 1998 after a stint in the USMC. He founded Web Station in Charlotte, NC soon after and has worked in web technologies ever since. As well as running Web Station, Glenn currently sits on the Windows Azure Websites Advisory Board and has recently joined the Charlotte IoT Board as Brand Ambassador / Social Media Director. Glenn lives in Waxhaw with his wife and two children.

Nick is a native Charlottean and studied Hospitality and Computer Information Systems at Western Carolina University. He joined Web Station in 2007 and is currently CTO / Chief Architect / Lead Developer. Nick has always enjoyed travel and has made it a priority starting back in his college days (why do you think the double major in Hospitality). After a few “test trips,” Nick and his wife Lauren decide to take the plunge and move to Europe for more than two years. While in Europe they visited more than 20 countries and 30 cities all while keeping up with work and leading a team of developers. Nick recently moved back to Charlotte with his wife and 3-month-old baby Ethan.

February Meeting: Code Generation with Roslyn

Join Signature Consultants and us on Tuesday, February 28, at 6:00 PM in the Multi-Purpose Room (MPR) of the Microsoft Charlotte Office. Business logic is tough. The rules are complex, sometimes contradicting each other, and they change a lot. All the things that we hate about business logic are also the reasons most businesses are in business. We need to accommodate these complexities, adapt to these changes and do it quickly, or our favorite company may not stay in business. Most code generation strategies focus on generating interfaces or proxies. Simple code with little logic, but imagine if we could automate creating some of the most complex logic found in most applications. Instead of hand writing complex business rules that are going to change on the whim of a competitor or the wish of a client or a shift in the market, we can build systems that will allow us to describe the business rules and enable the computer to write code. Sounds like science fiction, but this real.

In this presentation we will:

  • see an example of structuring business logic in database tables
  • what it would look like to pull that structured logic back into the code
  • generate code to implement the logic described in the database using the power of Roslyn

This presentation is based on material from the recently published book by Nick that covers these details in depth http://www.apress.com/la/book/9781484222102

The meeting presenter is Nick Harrison.

Nick a software consultant living in Columbia, South Carolina. He has done full stack development on projects ranging from full-featured Loan Origination Systems for prominent mortgage lenders to rapid prototypes for small start-ups. He has experience with full lifecycle development from initial inception through post deployment support.

Nick published articles and books on a broad range of technical topics including MVC, T4, Roslyn, Software Metrics, Design Patterns, Web Design. You can follow him on Twitter @Neh123us, where he also announces his blog posts, published articles, and speaking engagements.

September Meeting: Angular 2 – You’ve talked & read about it, now build an app

Join us and CapTech on Tuesday, September 27, at 6:00 PM in the Multi-Purpose Room (MPR) of the Microsoft Charlotte Office. There has been a lot of activity with Angular over the last couple of years. As a developer, especially a web developer, the term/name Angular is not foreign to you. You have probably discussed it with other developers, you have read about it in developer trade publications, and you have probably written a sample “Hello Angular 2” application just to get a feel for Angular 2’s value proposition. Now you are ready to build a real application but you have some reservation on how to get started or if you have started, you are questioning if you are building your application correctly. In this session, we will explore using Angular 2 to build the major features common to all web applications. This should give you a solid foundation for using Angular 2 as an effective tool in your development toolbox.

The meeting presenter is Richard Taylor.
