With DevBoston: John Baluka - Understanding real value Open Source w nopCommerce
For our first meeting in our new location at the Microsoft offices in Burlington, MA, we will have a joint meeting with Microsoft DevBoston featuring John Baluka speaking. Title Understanding the real value of Open Source with nopCommerce Description Open Source. Developers hear about it a lot. What should you really look for and why? For example, I choose to study nopCommerce, a .NET eCommerce solution, which has led to some amazing opportunities. nopCommerce has a familiar architecture, a plug-in model, and an active community. This is a fast paced walk-through of the nopCommerce architecture and source code. More importantly, you will discover the many ways to get involved with any other open source software to better your career and life. Bio John Baluka John has been developing software with the Microsoft stack for 20+ years. For most of the last 10 years, John has been a sub-contractor, business owner, and a Dad. John enjoys researching and applying new technologies to real world examples.

As usual, there will be pizza and sodas provided. Please RSVP through this site if you will be attending.
