Join us for our August meetup. LDNUG regular and general .NET wizard Mark Rendle will be telling us about high-performance networking in .NET Core using Visual Recode, and Mark's daughter Willow will be talking about her continuing adventures using Unity 3D and C# to simulate being a shark.

Please sign up with our hosts at Skills Matter if you're coming - when you register you'll get a check-in code in your email, which you'll need to get into the venue on the night.

Mark Rendle: High-Performance Networking with .NET Core 3.0

WCF may be no more, but there are still countless legacy systems that only speak SOAP, and new code still needs to talk to them. As part of the Visual Recode project, we're providing a brand new SOAP client generator for .NET Core 3.0; one that uses the full range of new, high-performance features of the modern framework. We've got Pipelines, Channels, Buffers, Pools, Spans, the works. In this talk, I'll show you how it all works together to create a client that uses less than 1% of the memory used by the old WCF client, and how you can use these new components to improve your own projects at all levels.

Willow Rendle: Continuing Adventures in Unity

Willow is learning to code by making games in Unity. In this talk, she'll share her experiences making Shark Attack, including what she has learned about C# and .NET; graphics, animation, and sound design; and the process of making software, including lessons that apply across all kinds of development. The aim is to get Shark Attack on the web, and maybe even on the App Store, by the time she starts Year 9 in September. See how she's getting on, and how you could use Unity to get your kids interested in coding, too.
