This is a dual meetup with Boston .NET Architecture Group - please only RSVP on one of the groups :)


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.


Understanding the real value of Open Source with nopCommerce


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.
