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 most active on Twitter (@dotnetoxford (https://twitter.com/dotnetoxford)), but also have a Facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/dotnetoxford/). And we're on the Digital Oxford Slack (https://digitaloxford.herokuapp.com/) in the #dotnetoxford channel.

As of 2019, we now also have a sister user-group which focuses just on Azure - Azure Oxford (https://www.meetup.com/Azure-Oxford/).

Using Source Generators for Fun (and maybe profit)

Online event

➖ Talk Description

One of the features added in C# 9 is called "source generators", enabling a developer to create new code at compile time. This can be used for a myriad of cases, such as optimization, automating repetitive code, and dynamic API creation. In this session, Jason will cover how source generators work and demonstrate a number of implementations.
