What we're about

GCNUG is a non-profit organization of .NET programmers, IT professionals, and managers in the Northwest Florida, Southern Alabama, and Southern Mississippi area. Since Microsoft released the .NET suite of development technologies in early 2001, there have been a growing number of developers and other IT workers who are interested in learning more about .NET and discovering opportunities for deploying it. In our area, there is a healthy community of programmers who are interested in .NET. The GCNUG is intended to meet the needs of that community.

Balena and Raspberry Pi for Internet of Things (Formerly resin.io)

Speaker: Matthew J. Parry-Hill, Principal Senior Software Engineer Meeting Topic: Balena and Raspberry Pi for Internet of Things (Formerly resin.io) The explosive growth of Internet of Things (IoT) in recent years has resulted in several criticisms and controversies. Primarily, these include issues such as platform fragmentation, security, and the increased level of effort required to push out updates. Managing fleets of IoT devices requires significant overhead, and that is what Balena hopes to solve. Balena provides the infrastructure necessary to develop, deploy, and manage fleets of connected devices at scale. It is container-based and even includes a free, open-source option featuring several open-source tools. Like Balena, Raspberry Pi has revolutionized the IoT development community by providing small and affordable computers that developers can use to learn how to develop for IoT. This month, we are going to discuss working with Balena and Raspberry Pi and how to setup your own device deployment and management server. We provide free pizza and beer, and an RSVP is not required. Feel free to contact us with any questions at [masked]. You can learn more about Balena here --> https://www.balena.io/ You can learn more about Raspberry Pi here --> https://www.raspberrypi.org/ Code examples are online here --> https://github.com/GCDNUG/201904-Balena_RaspberryPi You can also join us online via the live stream --> https://bitwizards.zoom.us/j/457275025

Web Content Management Powered by Modern .NET MVC Technology (Kentico 12)

Speaker: Patrick Taylor, Software Engineer Meeting Topic: Web Content Management Powered by Modern .NET MVC Technology (Kentico 12) Modern web development almost always requires integrating with a Content Management System (CMS) to enable content editors to maintain their own web sites or web applications. These CMS integrations often limit the developer or require them to use obsolete languages and development frameworks. Kentico 12 was developed to fix that developer-marketer disconnect by allowing developers to use modern .NET Model-View-Controller (MVC) technology. MVC is a well-documented development technique that empowers both developers and marketers by separating development concerns and simplifying the architecture when developing applications at scale. We provide free pizza and beer, and an RSVP is not required. Feel free to contact us with any questions at [masked]. You can learn more about Kentico 12 here --> https://www.kentico.com/product/kentico12 Code examples are online here --> https://github.com/GCDNUG/201905-Kentico12 You can also join us online via the live stream here --> https://bitwizards.zoom.us/j/242709838
