Thanks to those who attended the September meeting, which featured a presentation from Bryan Soltis on "Back to Basics - A Guide to Better Programming" and myself delivering a "Big Data 101" presentation. I hope everyone in attendance walked away in an enlightened state of nirvana and/or stuffed from pizza. Also, kudos to the group for holding back on throwing tomatoes at me.
Due to technical difficulty we were not able to record Bryan's presentation. However, "Big Data 101" can be viewed via the following link: Big Data 101
Bryan and I are coordinating speakers for our next meeting, which will be held in November (details forthcoming). While on the topic of speakers, I would like to stress that every member of the group is welcomed to speak at our meetings. The Gulf Coast .NET Users Group benefits from the knowledge you share. But what you may not realize is that you benefit the most from speaking. How?
Back to Basics / Big Data in Azure
Bryan covered lots of topics and common mistakes, from string manipulation to inline SQL. Mark presented an overview of "Big Data" and HDInsight, Microsoft Windows Azure’s "Big Data" solution.
Designing for Windows 8
Taking inspirational cues from Bauhaus design, International Typographic Style, and cinematography, the Windows 8 UI design style brings an application to life while presenting content clearly and beautifully. This session is intended to help developers and designers understand the design concepts and basic building blocks of the Windows 8 user interface. In this session, you will be introduced to the principles behind this design style and learn how to effectively apply these principles in your applications.
