What we're about

Hi community,

.Net London, almost always fuelled by pizzas, is geared towards providing the local London community with insightful, fun and interesting talks, pub meets, lightening talks etc on topics related to Microsoft technologies. We are exclusively organised by iO Associates.

http://ioassociates.co.uk (http://ioassociates.co.uk/)

Our group is free to join and attend, from .Net Developers to aspiring Computer Science students to Software and Product Managers to Agile Coaches. Plus anyone in between!

The main aim is to promote the adoption and understanding of .Net and other Microsoft technologies.

We are going to meet once a month, at various local companies/venues (predominantly in London). This gives the local community a chance to find out about different companies but more importantly to network with other techies in the area.

We are lucky enough to be in a very fortunate position where local companies sponsor us with a spread of drinks, pizzas but most importantly with the talks.

We look forward to seeing you at our meetups!

Deepak and Stella

Port That .Net Framework Application To .Net5 - Bill Penberthy

We are delighted to announce our first .Net virtual meetup of 2021 will be taking place on Wednesday 17th February at 7pm! We will be joined by Bill Penberthy, Developer Advocate at Amazon Web Services, who will be speaking on ‘Port That .Net Framework Application to .Net5’. .NET 5 represents a new era within the .NET ecosystem. New development on the .NET Framework has ended, and while it is still a viable application framework, the writing is definitely on the wall as there is no reason that any new development projects would use the v4.x .NET Framework. Instead, they would most likely be on .NET 5 or .NET Core 3.1. This could end up with projects within a company being scattered across various development frameworks as your team manages both current applications and new systems. In this session we will look at how to port your .NET Framework application. We will use the Porting Assistant for .NET (an open source AWS-created application) to evaluate the level of effort needed to convert the applications as well as work through several of the most common porting issues and concerns. About the speaker With over 25 years in software development, Bill brings a pragmatic (curmudgeonly?) approach to software development. With much of that time spent in consulting, William has worked on many different projects and used many different architectural approaches. He recently switched to the dark side and uses his development and architecture experience in a product management role where he acts as a .NET developer advocate to AWS, helping them to build a better and richer .NET developer experience. Bill lives in Seattle, Washington and has spoken internationally, including at NDC this year.
