Our third London EPiServer Developer Meetup will be held on 7th July 2011, and will be hosted by our friends at Rufus Leonard.
Hang on - let me put that in my diary....
Rufus Leonard have kindly offered to be our hosts for the evening, they are based in Farringdon.
I want to push a slightly different approach this time. It would be great if more of you would get involved. I know there is a huge amount of experience and knowledge out there and I'd love for some of you to step up and and share your experiences. Remember that not only are we EPiServer developers, we are also .NET developers, and all also web developers, so there is a really broad range of things that you could share with us. They don't have to be long talks or even that formal. The most important thing is the sharing (just as I'm sure your Mother's always taught you!)
We've got a theme of 'Integration' this time and three of our members have kindly volunteered to talk:
- Paul Dunstone (from our hosts Rufus) - who will be talking about an EPiServer / SmartLogic integration that allowed for a rich and automated content classification. Paul previously blogged about this, but this will provide a great opportunity to understand more of the technical details.
- Raghavendra Bangalore-Govindaiah (aka Rags) - who will be presenting an overview of a COMET based pushed real-time data feed integration with an EPiServer site. For those of you who have never heard of COMET before, this should be interesting as COMET introduces a new model of working across the web. Rather than the traditional request/response cycle it uses long held http requests to allow the server to PUSH content updates directly to client web browsers.
- Mark Everard - who will give an overview of NuGet, Microsoft's package manager tool for ASP.NET / Visual Studio, including a look at how to create your own packages and integrate the creation process with your project's build script using MSBuild
