What we're about

philly.NET is a 501(c)3 non-profit user group focusing on modern development technologies. We hold monthly Meetups, monthly Hands on Labs, and semi-annual full day Code Camps. 
Most events are held at the Microsoft Malvern MTC and focus on Microsoft tools and services. Many topics are of interest to general software development and not Microsoft specific. 
Everyone is welcome to attend in person! Most events include refreshments courtesy of corporate sponsors.
We also live stream most events and archive the recordings on YouTube. Check here:

C# Nuget Packages and Kubernetes Zarf

Needs a location

Step up your C# game with five popular NuGets
Louis Berman

In today’s day and age it pays to program smart by leveraging some of the best in open-source NuGets:

  • GuardClauses; an expressive library for argument validation
  • Vogen; the best cure for your “Primitive Obsession”
  • Stateless; state management made dead-simple
  • Bogus; the premier “fakes” generator for C#
  • SquidEyes.Testing; the speaker’s own set of testing helpers

Join Louis Berman for a hands-on walkthrough of the above plus (as a bonus) a demo of Seq; his favorite structured logging solution.

The executive producer of .NET Conf, Jeff Fritz is back in Philly and going to share about .NET, Visual Studio 2022, and all the fun shenanigans from .NET Conf.

Exploring Homomorphic Encryption with Microsoft SEAL
John Iwasz - Avara

Homomorphic encryption allows computations to be applied to encrypted data. It's a simple statement that carries broad implications. This enables one party to send data to a second party which performs computations and returns the results without the need to decrypt. Homomorphic encryption has been available since 2009, but the computational power needed for practical use cases has not been available until recently. This presentation explores use cases and dives into the Microsoft SEAL library.

Check-in Required
