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!

London .Net #2 @Codurance


Hi all, We are delighted to announce that our second .Net London meetup will be hosted by Codurance at their offices in 3 Sutton Ln, London EC1M 5PU and we have James Birnie who will be talking on "Shor's Algorithm, C# and Q# Will Break the World's Encryption" More about James - James has worked in software since the 1990s when TDD was something you studied but never did, pipelines were for carrying oil and “Agile” and “Lean” were words used for describing athletes. James worked for 9 years in a startup where he learned the hard way about CI, CD and splitting the monolith. In 2015 he started a new life as a consultant, spending 4 extremely interesting years at ThoughtWorks. In July 2019, he started a new adventure at Codurance where he is a champion of software excellence through solving organisational problems. Details on the topic - Shor's Algorithm, C# and Q# Will Break the World's Encryption Quantum computers are coming. When they arrive, which is probably sooner than you think, all of our classical encryption algorithms are dead. Shor’s algorithm was formulated by Peter Shor in 1994. By using some fairly simple number theory, a bit of computationally complex (for a classical computer) modular exponentiation and some quantum magic, Shor’s algorithm can efficiently factorise numbers. The quantum magic is weird, very weird. By using the Quantum Fourier Transform a quantum computer can exploit the interference pattern generated in parallel universes to discover the periodicity of modular exponentiation without actually calculating successive powers. So what can we do when RSA dies and what should we do now? BB84 is provably secure and also relies on quantum mechanics, specifically the polarisation of light photons. I will demonstrate BB84 as well as some classical algorithms that we can be using now that are quantum safe. The talk includes an explanation of how Shor works, a demonstration of an implementation of Shor using Q#, an explanation of BB84 and classical quantum safe algorithms and a lot of fun in the process. We will confirm the details of second speaker shortly, please save this date in your diary for now and we look forward to seeing you there. Cheers, Deepak & Stella
