April/2014 Meeting

Past, Present and Future of .NET – Cory Smith


** RSVP Here ** 

With over 12 years behind us, now's a great time to review how we got here. What exactly is this animal we refer to as .NET? What does it mean to be a .NET developer? How and why is .NET still relevant? More importantly, what's next? Join us for an brief history, an extremely candid conversation about where we are today and, more importantly, where we might be tomorrow.
