Our Mission

  • To form a dynamic community of .NET Developers in the Las Vegas area.
  • To advance the understanding of the Microsoft's .NET platform with business and technology leaders in the region.

Why .NET and not some other technology?

  • We believe that .NET is the best choice of tools for building Desktop, Smart Device, Web enabled applications.

Which .NET subjects are focused on?

  • Visual Basic .Net
  • C # .Net
  • SQL (as programmed from the Visual Studio's IDE)
  • 3rd Party tools as they apply
  • Discussion on language conversions are always welcome

Why a Community?

  • To benefit from the synergy generated by like-minded individuals working together on something they want and believe in.

What's the Plan?

  • Monthly Presentations
  • Collaborative Projects
  • Web site as Virtual Community

How can I get Involved?

  • Attend the general meetings
  • Get to know the other members of the group
  • Ask questions and exchange ideas
  • Visit the web site, get involved in making it a vibrant virtual community
  • Suggest and/or participate in a collaborative project

This Mission Statement is a work in progress. If you have any comments and/or suggestions on how we can improve on it then we'd like to hear them.

Next Meeting

Our next meeting is Thursday, September 27th. For this month, we will be having Joe Mayo talking about the basics of deep learning.

In this talk, you'll see how deep learning works. We'll cover the basics, discussing concepts and techniques that are common to many types of deep learning. Although math is inherent in how deep learning works, Joe will explain enough to where you don't have to be an expert in calculus, linear algebra, or statistics. You'll see that this technology doesn't require a Ph.D. for any developer who wants to learn and take advantage of AI. By the end of the presentation, you will have seen a full example of how deep learning works, design and considerations, and practical applications.

Joe Mayo is an author and independent software consultant, specializing in Microsoft technologies. He has written several books, including Programming the Microsoft Bot Framework by Microsoft Press. Joe is a Microsoft AI MVP with several years of awards, he lives in Las Vegas, NV and tweets (as @JoeMayo) about #ai, #botframework, and #chatbots on Twitter.
