  • Online: What can't you do with Visual Studio Code?

    Online event

    Hi Tucson .Netters, We hope that this finds you safe and well! Thanks to all who participated in our May meeting where Alicia covered Machine Learning on Azure and how it could be used to help w/ Covid-19. This month we'll have a very informal meeting to take a look at Visual Studio Code and all kinds of things that it can do. I'll talk about and demo a number of related extensions and capabilities and hoping that each of you may share your favorite extensions and why. There's not much you can't do with VS Code and there are so many cool things that you can do it's well worth talking about and sharing. We'll touch on Remote Development, Dev Containers, Live Share, Unit testing, Markup editing, Debugging, extensions, GIT integration, Docker and Kubernetes support, VS Code source code and getting started writing VS Code extensions, and more.

  • No Meeting in June, we'll resume next month, check out Build 2020 sessions

    Hi Tucson .Netters, We hope that this note finds you safe and well! Thanks to all who attended last month as Alicia gave us an excellent presentation on Azure machine learning to help deal with Covid. I'm tied up with something and won't be able to host the meeting this month. If you're looking to check out what's new with .NET I'd highly recommend taking a look at the content from the Build conference which took place last month. https://channel9.msdn.com/Events/Build/2020 I've been experimenting with Blazor and we will have a talk on that in an upcoming meeting. If you're interested in learning more about the latest webassembly version of Blazor here is an excellent talk on it from Steven Sanderson. Modern Web UI with Blazor WebAssembly https://channel9.msdn.com/events/Build/2020/BOD104?term=sanderson&lang-en=true If you are interested in what's happening with .NET 5.0 check it out https://dotnet.microsoft.com/download/dotnet/5.0 or try a docker container version https://hub.docker.com/_/microsoft-dotnet We had also talked about remote development with Visual Studio Code. Here's another nice session Remote development with Visual Studio Code https://channel9.msdn.com/Events/Build/2020/INT167 You should be able to combine that with the .NET 5 container images to check things out in a way that won't affect your system. We will be having some upcoming talks related to .NET 5 as well since that will be the biggest .NET event of the year. Be safe!!!

  • Online: How Software is helping with Covid-19 - Machine Learning and Azure

    Hi Tucson .Netters, We hope that this finds you safe and well! Things worked out well last month and so let's keep it going! This month Alicia will continue with our theme on how software and Computer Science can and are helping with the fight against Covid-19. Alicia will drill down into the use of Machine Learning and Azure!

I'll share some of the interesting things I've found and we would love to hear from folks if you've found anything interesting along these lines. We'll take a look at the breadth of related issues and topics that software is helping with and we'll dig in a bit to look at some data sets, advanced tools, and possibly some simple ML.NET AI to begin to work with some of the data.

  • No meeting in March, we'll resume in April, microservice theme coming up

    Hi Tucson .Netters, I've discussed things with Alicia and we will cancel this month's meeting to promote social distancing. We'll see how things go as we get closer to next month's meeting. We want everyone to be well and safe and if needed we may try an e-meeting for a limited group of folks next month. For this month, there is a ton of great info available on line and encourage you to find something interesting to learn more about. We don't want to lose our sense of community though and is why we'll consider an e-meeting if needed for awhile going forward. We're all in this fight together and by taking the necessary actions and sticking to our values while looking out for and helping each other we'll get through this and will be able to deal with anything like it in the future. It will take a serious policy to deal with this and if you haven't seen this short 10 min video from Bill Gates 5 years ago it does a good job of saying what we should be doing to prepare for such events. Bill Gates: The next outbreak? We’re not ready https://youtu.be/6Af6b_wyiwI It's got me thinking about ways that computer science can be leveraged to help fight these things going forward. We wish that you and yours remain well. We'll check back next month. ======================================================= This still applies from last month's note: Over the next few months we'll be picking some topics related to microservice development using .NET Core. There are a lot of related sub-topics to talk about. If you'd like to check out more information on microservice development and related topics please see: https://dotnet.microsoft.com/learn/aspnet/microservices-architecture Please let us know if there's something in there you are particularly interested in about microservices (or any .NET topic) and we'll see what we can do to get it covered. Alicia has a talk on gRPC which is a fast alternative to REST API access in microservices. We'll still get to Blazor when looking at UI's deployed as part of a microservice based application. There is a lot going on with design patterns, docker containers, orchestrators, Azure, etc. There are so many hot topics these days and we have a lot to pick from. I'd encourage you to do two things 1) consider giving a presentation to the group 2) vote on the topics you'd like to see covered for upcoming talks at this link; https://www.meetup.com/Tucson-NET-User-Group/polls/1284099/ We'd like to thank Nate and TEKSystems who provide our venue along with food and drink.
