San Diego .NET Developers Group - March 2014

We have an awesome lineup for March. Here is the schedule:

• Speed up your day, get more done without working harder, improve your geek skills, enjoy working more, and the science behind, ‘Working, In-The-Zone’ - (Steve Kohlenberger): Your brain is the one essential key piece of technology you must use each time you perform any development activity. You learned how to walk, talk, think, and code. If your want to be an Olympic Runner, World Class Speaker, or White Hat Hacker, you know it takes a lot more time, commitment, focused learning, sometimes coaching, than just learning the basics. But what kind of training can you get for your brain? While there are many different strategies we could discuss, I’ll introduce you to the art and science, as well as ongoing research into, ‘In-The-Zone’, as experienced in the work environment.

Please take the following survey before the meeting: 

When you leave, you will know:  

·Five very different types of ‘In-The-Zone ‘, their causes, and the two types commonly found among software engineers. 

·What conditions must be met before you can enter the Zone. 

·What events will likely pull you out of the Zone. 

·You will also be able to better identify when you or someone else is in the Zone. 

·Things you can do to develop more control of your own Zone further.

• Obama, JQuery, & ASP.NET SignalR. Getting Started with the Real-Time Web - (Michael Ossou): This session is intended for the everyday developer who is interested in a more traditional implementation of the (non-game-related) Real-Time Web. While primarily an introduction to ASP.NET SignalR, we will also be discussing some fundamental HTML 5/JavaScript concepts relevant to our sample application. 
If you are a typical web developer that spends most of your day working on business applications and would like to see what it would take to get started with the Real-Time Web and discuss where and when it’s applicable to your application, this session is for you. All skill levels are welcome – no gymnastics required.

Michael Ossou is a second generation software developer who has spent the last 7 years working at DiscountASP.NET, one of the largest web hosting companies in the world that cater specifically to ASP.NET developers. In addition to working on the provisioning systems that make the DiscountASP.NET platform the most feature-rich in the industry, he has spent the last several years working on, a newly announced service that uses the latest cloud-based technologies Microsoft has to offer.

    Great talks guys... about the question somebody asked about how getting in the zone correlates with Agile, I just wanted to add that depending on the flavor of agile you are using, the activities are supposed to be broken down to 4-8 hrs of work, perfect fit for 1-4 "in-the-zone" sessions. All the interruptions and ceremony around the activities should be left out. Also if you are using XP or Mob programming, then you better work on those team zoning sessions :)

      Thank you. I appreciate the information. I will send you an email to try to connect with you so I can learn more about how you see it. I have not discovered any official research in this area and anything you have experienced or seen, is appreciated.
