Tis the season for fantastic technical presentations! Our favorite C# MVP, Jonas Stawski, is back and he'll show us how Single Page Applications really work and this time he's not kidding around. Jonas will show us a real SPA application using Durandal, Knockout, RequireJS and a few other libraries. Then, Richie Rump will share from his experiences and give us seven tips for a successful IT career without getting fired.
Because it's the holidays we'll be having a gift swap but this swap will have a bit of a twist. Bring a gift and you'll get a gift. If you don't like that gift you can take someone else's. So bring a gift worth no more than $15 and let's have a great holiday.
Because we don't want the fun to stop when the meeting is over we'll be at Miller's Ale House on Miracle Mile (101 Miracle Mile, Coral Gables) for food and networking. All are welcome.
