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 regular group meeting will be on Thursday, August 25th.

The meeting will begin at 6:00 PM.

For this meeting, Barry Stahl is giving a presentation entitled "A Developer's Guide to Finding Optimal Solutions".

A Developer's Guide to Finding Optimal Solutions
Solving problems that have more than one possible solution is something every developer will be asked to do over the course of his or her career. Figuring out the best way to utilize the capacity of a device or machine, finding the shortest path between two points, or determining the best way to schedule people or events are all problems where mathematical optimization techniques can be used to quickly and efficiently find solutions. In this introduction to mathematical optimization designed specifically for software developers, we will explore some of the foundational techniques for solving these types of problems, and add several of these methods to your toolbox so that you can put them to work for your customers. Since this is a session for developers, we'll keep it in terms that work best for us. That is, we'll go heavy on the code and lighter on the math.

Barry Stahl is a .NET Software Engineer who has been creating business solutions for enterprise customers for nearly 30 years. Barry is also an Election Integrity Activist, baseball and hockey fan, husband of one genius and father of another, and a 30+ year resident of Phoenix Arizona. When Barry is not traveling around the world to speak at Conferences, Code Camps and User Groups or to participate in GiveCamp events, he spends his days as Principal Application Architect for Crew Systems at American Airlines and his nights thinking about the next AZGiveCamp, an annual event where software developers come together to build websites and apps for some great non-profit organizations.
