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, May 30th. We have Jay Harris who will be talking about managing your website's production code in a talk entitled "From localhost to production: Managing your code with Azure DevOps".

From localhost to production: Managing your code with Azure DevOps

Your code compiles. Your unit tests pass. Your website works on localhost. But “It works on my machine” does not get your site deployed to your production environment. Azure DevOps can handle much of the process of between localhost and production. Continuous Integration can build and test your application; release workflows can automate your deployments to test and production environments; and everything can be customized to employ manual interaction and gatekeeping for quality control and human oversight. Getting your application to production does not need to be an invasive, manual process. Learn to use the strength of Azure DevOps to manage your path to Production.

Topics Covered
  • An introduction to Continuous Integration and Azure DevOps.
  • Building a basic continuous integration pipeline.
  • Extending continuous integration for unit testing.
  • Considering source control branches, pull requests, and build quality.
  • Artifacts: Handling compiler output.
  • Building a basic continuous deployment pipeline.
  • Extending the deployment pipeline through additional environments.

As usual, the meeting will held at Rob Roy's Innevation Center and the meeting will begin at 6:00 PM.

The dotNet will meeting this month at the inNEVation Center, located at 6795 Edmond Street, Las Vegas, NV 89118, 3rd floor.

Exit southbound onto Decatur from the 215, turn right on Badura Avenue and then another right on Edmond Street. The inNEVation Center is located in the west building.
