What we’re about
The Wisconsin .NET User Group was founded on February 12, 2002 at the launch of Visual Studio.NET. Our mission from inception has been to develop a peer group of developers, architects, and managers who are interested in learning, sharing and growing their Microsoft .NET knowledge and capabilities. The group's vision is to provide members with a forum to hear top industry experts speak, learn and teach others who are interested in the same technologies as you and are facing the same challenges.
The Wisconsin .NET User Group covers the entire spectrum of .NET technologies, including the Windows Server System, XML web services, application development with Visual Studio.NET and the .NET Framework (including web, mobile, and desktop applications.) We are proud to now have over 3,000 members and we have continued to grow stronger each month due to the well-known .NET expert speakers we bring each month, the support of our growing list of sponsors, and the input and interest of each of our members.
The Wisconsin .NET User Group's sole purpose is to bring technology and business people together who are interested in .NET technologies. In the pursuit of this purpose, we strive to bring interesting speakers to talk on interesting topics in a monthly meeting format. We also highly encourage interaction between members, so we can all share our experiences and learn from each other. It is this community orientation that brings us together to develop and deliver the best applications to our respective employers, customers, and ourselves.
Come join the .NET community - It's FREE - It's FUN - It's a great way to learn more about .NET!

- The .NET ABC of things you pretend to know about1134 N 9th St suite 100, Milwaukee, WI
The .NET ABC of things you pretend to know about
Ever pretended to know what a specific technical term means? And after a while it just became awkward to ask?
We've all been there. The software development industry is one of knowledge workers, combine that with an alarming amount of developers suffering of imposter syndrome and we get the "yes I know what that means", instead of asking for an explanation.
In this session we will go through terminologies like tree-shaking, linking, just-in-time, garbage collection and many others that I have discovered people are pretending to know about. Even if you can place the words, I will try to give you a better understanding of what it actually does.
- Modern .NET web development with batteries included Showcasing Orchard Core CMSConcurrency, Inc., Brookfield, WI
Are you developing .NET web apps and are tired of reinventing the wheel with every project? Use a modern foundation to build on instead! In this session, we'll do a quick dive into working with the modern ASP.NET Core framework and web content management system (CMS) Orchard Core (https://www.orchardcore.net/). We'll see what Orchard can provide you, how it goes beyond simple content management, and why you'd want to join such a cutting-edge open-source community.
