• Annual Holiday Party
    It's that time of year, again. Time for the annual CONDG / Microsoft user group holiday party!!! Once again, the Central Ohio .NET Developers Group user group is joining with three other Microsoft technology focused user groups in Central Ohio to host an annual holiday party. The party is a joint effort of the Central Ohio .NET User Group, the Columbus App Dev User Group, the Buckeye SharePoint User Group, and the Central Ohio Azure user group. The event will be on Monday, December 10th from 6pm - 8pm at the Improving Enterprises office. A $5 ticket is required for attendance. The annual holiday party is a great way for you to network with other geeks in the Central Ohio technology community. Plus, there will be plenty of board games, ping pong, and food! We'll also be raffling off a few fantastic prizes (more details on those to be announced soon). As in year's past, we'll also be supporting a few local charities. Your $5 ticket will go to support TechCorps. Additionally, you can bring a toy (or two, or three) to support OSU's Toy Adaption Program. You can also bring food to donate to the Mid-Ohio Food Bank. That's a lot of giving!!! Each item you donate earns you another ticket to the prize raffle. For example, if you have a $5 + one toy + one food item, that will earn you three tickets. The more toys and food you bring, the more tickets you earn! Please purchase a ticket now by going to https://www.eventbrite.com/e/christmas-party-for-columbus-msft-user-groups-2018-tickets-52855530314. There you can purchase your ticket, and also learn more about suggested food donations and toys for the Toy Adaption Program. You must purchase a ticket to be eligible for the raffle, and you must be present to win.

  • October Meetup: Jeff McKenzie - HoloLens Apps With Unity & C#
    As the universe of immersive technologies expands, it's easy to get overwhelmed and sometimes confused not only by device choice and experience, but also by terminology. In this session, as we discuss virtual, augmented, and mixed realities -- what they mean, how they're used, and where they overlap -- you'll discover how to build your own personal reality for HoloLens, the wearable, self-contained, holographic computer. You don't even need a device to get started! Create an experience in the Unity 3D engine, which supports C# for programmatic manipulation of objects. We'll then step through the process for building Unity projects as Universal Windows Platform (UWP) solutions, maintaining them in version control, and deploying them for testing to the HoloLens emulator in Visual Studio. Speaker: Jeff McKenzie Jeff McKenzie has worked in software development for nearly twenty years, in both freelance and full-time capacities, as a developer and team leader. He enjoys helping others solve problems through technology, whether it's the small business getting on the web for the first time, or a Fortune 500 company expanding its enterprise. Although he started his career using BASIC on an Atari 800, he took a big detour, getting Biology and English degrees before rediscovering programming, with a new thing called the World Wide Web. He is currently Principal Consultant at Cardinal Solutions Group in Columbus Ohio.
