What we're about

.NET Oxford is a developer user-group / meetup based in Oxfordshire. Whilst aimed at .NET developers, the topics we cover are "anything of interest" to a .NET developer - so we also cover plenty of other related technologies. For an idea of the topics we've covered so far, see the tag-cloud on our website: https://www.dotnetoxford.com.

Now more than ever, it's such an amazing time to be a .NET developer with all that's going on at Microsoft with both .NET Core, Azure, and the open-source community.

Please help us spread the word and let as many people know as possible!

We're on Twitter (@dotnetoxford) - but the main place for our community outside of the actually events is on Discord - you can join from here: discord.gg/cNXxUXDegH

Hacking on Contextive - the Living Domain Language Documentation Tool

"A change in the language is a change in the model"

As you maintain domain model integrity you may end up with "duplicate concepts" or "false cognates".

Is everyone coding or are they coding? (Are you a doctor or a software developer)?
Does a spoiler make you happy or sad (Are you a car enthusiast or a film lover?)

And how do new team members who weren't part of initial modelling exercises get up to speed on your domain language?

Contextive is a new tool for documenting a ubiquitous domain language which embeds the definitions in all the places the language is used - in code, documentation, online conversations and modelling tools.

In this talk we'll review the tool, its inspiration and usage, then get stuck into collaboratively hacking on it to fix a bug or add a feature (decided on the night!).

As we hack, depending on what we work on, we might be looking at:
