User Group Meeting Today 27 Nov 2012 @ 7PM

November 27, 2012 11:42 by zack

We are having a last minute .NET User Group Meeting tonight at 7PM.

I'll be giving a presentation on creating jQuery and jQueryUI plugins. Plugins are how we can extend jQuery and create re-usable javascript modules. I'll start off by showing how to create simple plugins and show how you can create composite re-usable controls.

We will also cover using jQuery in an ASP.NET MVC website.

Example code will be available in a public BitBucket repository.

About Me: I'm Zack Moore. I graduated from Mercer with a B.S. in Computer Science in 2000. I've been programming almost as long as I've been able to read when my dad brought home an ATARI 400.

Directions:

Meet in room 204 of the Computer Science Building on Mercer's Campus, Building 14 near the intersection of College ST and Elm ST

July 2012 Meeting

July 19, 2012 16:09 by zack

On Tuesday, 24 July 2012 Chad Brooks from Microsoft will be our presenter.

 

I haven’t gotten the fully presentation description yet, but I think he was talking about presenting on something like Windows 8 for .NET developers using Metro Controls and Async.

 

The topic for this month's meeting is: 

 

Learn how to build great applications for Windows 8 and the Metro User Experience using familiar .Net Languages and XAML. During this talk, we will explore the breadth of controls available to the .Net Developer, programming using the async keyword, and how to build components that are consumable from other WinRT languages (like HTML5 and C++). 

 

Chad is an Architecture Evangelist for Microsoft and gets to spend his time doing cool stuff for cool companies using MS tech.

Meeting is at 7pm. Drinks and Snacks will be provided.

Directions: Meet in room 204 of the Computer Science Building on Mercer's Campus, Building 14 near the intetsection of College ST and Elm ST

[Update: 20 July 2012] 

Directions: The CS building is closed that week, so the meeting will be held in Stetson Hall Room 256. Stetson Hall is Building 25 on the map and is on Edgewood Ave which is pedestrian only. There is parking directly behind Stetson if you are coming from Mercer University DR or if you come from Coleman AVE you can walk across campus.

May 2012 Meeting - Development on Windows 8

May 7, 2012 11:17 by davec

We're meeting tomorrow night at 7p in the CS building (room 204) at Mercer. Our guest speaker is Glen Gordon, the Developer Evangelist at Microsoft. Come out to talk to Glen and to eat a snack or two. 

-- 

"Getting started with Windows 8 development and HTML"

The next version of Windows, code-named Windows 8, will provide unprecedented opportunities for developers, designers and startups. The programming model for building compelling, connected, native apps that harness the full power of the PC will allow HTML5 and JavaScript developers to build native applications on par with Microsoft's traditional technologies. And the new marketplace for distributing these applications gives you a potential paying customer base of more than a billion people.

In this talk, you'll get a hands-on introduction to the next version of Windows, and see how the UI was designed to work seamlessly with a diversity of devices and form factors. We'll cover how to build and design Metro-styled applications, and connect you with tons of resources so you can capitalize on this new opportunity that brings your skills to the next level.
