Meeting in the evenings at the Microsoft Store in Salem on the 3rd Thursday of the month, every month, the group was established in May of 2013. We've grown, with a community of over 15 published developers and over 60 apps... so far.
We are organized only by fans, outside of any direct affiliation with Microsoft. Yes, we have a lot of friends in and around Microsoft, and the Microsoft Store offers us a venue in the form of the theater at the back, but we are an independent community group.
WebAssembly has huge implications for the web— it provides a way to run code written in multiple languages on the web at near-native speed, with client apps running on the web that previously couldn’t have done so. Jim Wilcox, Architect with Insight Digital Innovation (formerly BlueMetal), will discuss how to build rich apps with WebAssembly with an intro to UNO Platform. Uno Platform is new UI framework that compiles and runs C# code. It allows for the creation of rich UI apps that can target mobile and web simultaneously. You will learn, in this talk, how to reuse .NET Standard application and C# code to make your applications run across all browsers and all OS with WASM. In this session, not only you will be able to see the magic happen in front of your very eyes, you will also learn how to create apps using C# and XAML that can work on WASM but also on iOS, Android, Windows.
