• What's New in Visual Studio 2019

    NuSkin Innovations Center

    Microsoft has released the latest version of Visual Studio. It has many features that are designed to make you more productive as you code. We will look at some of the features that you may want to take advantage of.

  • Block chain

    NuSkin Innovations Center

    By now you have probably heard about block chain. In this session we will task about the reasons you might want to implement block chain and then look at how you can get started with block chain and Azure.

  • Getting Value out of PowerShell, for Developers

    NuSkin Innovations Center

    Windows PowerShell is a popular tool for Windows system administration due to its integration with .NET, WMI and LDAP. Programmers can leverage PowerShell to automate tasks and evaluate .NET code at an interactive prompt. Keith Rimington has been using PowerShell since its introduction over 12 years ago. Come participate in a live-coding discussion, where we explore practical applications of PowerShell to the daily developer’s life. We’ll discuss development tools, language syntax, how to leverage the pipeline effectively, XML and JSON processing, debugging, and code reuse through modules.

  • Making debugging easier - VisualStudio and RevDebug

    NuSkin Innovations Center

    Most developers know that they will spend more time debugging a complex piece of code than they did writing it in the first place. This is because debugging can be a painstaking process where it might be difficult to find the cause of the error and then it can take time to examine every variable to determine what went wrong. In this meeting we will look at the built in debugging features in Visual Studio and then we will look at RevDeBug, an extension that can make debugging easier. We will also raffle off licenses of RevDeBug. Come ready with your debugging experiences and questions.

  • Blazor - Running .NET in the Browser

    NuSkin Innovations Center

    Back by popular demand... Blazor is a new Web frontend technology from the ASP.NET team, which enables you to write web app frontends in C# and Razor syntax, with no JavaScript needed. Mason Wheeler will present this topic. When Mason Wheeler was in 3rd grade, his family got an Apple IIe. He discovered BASIC on it, and immediately knew he wanted to be a programmer, a dream he's been pursuing ever since. He currently works as a professional developer for the Sling team at Dish Network.

  • Buffer overrun exploits and how to find them

    NuSkin Innovations Center

    Programmers are told everyday to write secure code so hackers will not exploit it. "Nobody will use my code in a cyber security breach!" This demonstration shows step-by-step how to find and exploit a buffer overrun vulnerability found in a legacy program running on XP. (The original presentation was created by Klaus Gebeshuber and titled "Writing your first Windows exploit in less than one hour" and the authors slides are found at https://bsidesvienna.at/slides/2015/exploit_workshop.pdf ) Bio Jim Richardson grew up in a small town outside of Boston and now lives in Utah. He has been writing and designing computer programs for over 30 years. He graduated from Ricks College & BYU in Computer Science and is currently half-way through the Cyber Security Master program at UVU.
