• What we'll do
We will meet on Thursday, February 15th, 2018 at Modis' offices at 101 Bullitt Lane. Doors will open at 6:30pm and the presentations will begin sharply at 7:00 pm. Along with a great presentation, we'll have food and raffle prizes. Be sure to RSVP so we know how much food is needed. Afterwards, we go to BJ's Restaurant to continue the conversation.
Which Microsoft Framework Am I Supposed to Use?
For 15 years, the biggest decision was whether it was time to upgrade to the latest .NET framework or not. Now there is the .NET Framework, .NET Core, and .NET Standard. So many options and it not completely obvious which one (or ones) you should be using. During this session, you see a down to earth description of what each of these are and get an idea of when you should be one or more of these and what version of them based upon what you are building or maintaining.
