- What's New in .NET Core 3
Now that .NET Core 3 has been released, are you wondering if you should upgrade? Are there any cool new features in .NET Core 3, ASP.NET Core 3, or Entity Framework Core 3 that you could take advantage of? On Tuesday Oct 15th, Joe Walling will cover these topics so you will know if, or when you should upgrade. We have a new sponsor this week.

- Progressive Web Apps and React Native
React Native and Progressive Web Apps are 2 ways to build applications that behave like native apps on a mobile device. This month we will have a double-header. Bill Zelenko will start the night with a discussion on his experience creating a React native application he recently built. Following Bill, Joe Walling will cover Progressive Web Applications (PWAs). After covering the advantages of PWAs, Joe will demonstrate how to convert an ASP.NET MVC Core app to a progressive web app. Then he'll show how you can handle data so that when you are disconnected from the Internet the app will still work. This meeting is sponsored by SystemTec (https://systemtec.net).
