July 24th Lightning Talks

Once again we are very excited to announce that this July 24th we will be hosting an all Lightning Talk meeting and you can be one of the presenters!

What are Lightning Talks?

A Lightning Talk is a short 10 to 15 minute presentation on a single topic or idea. Several talks will be presented in a row to the audience.

Who can give a Lightning Talk?

We allow anyone to give a talk on any technical topic that they are interested in and would like to share with the .Net community. No previous speaking experience is required!

If you have never given a talk before, doing a Lightning Talk is a great way to get started. You can try your hand at public speaking without having to put together a full length presentation.

For seasoned speakers, Lightning Talks are a nice way to test out new material and ideas in front of an audience.

All you need to do is pick a topic you would like to present and put together a few slides and short demos that can be completed in 10-15 minutes.

How do I sign up?

If you are interested in doing a Lightning Talk, please send an email to contact@condg.org with your topic by Monday July 21st.

We have room for 6 speakers and it is first come, first serve. Hurry and submit your talks now!

June 2014 Meeting Announcement - Bridging Node.js and .NET Using Edge.js

Meeting Topic

Bridging Node.js and .NET Using Edge.js


Are you a .NET developer who wishes to jump into Node.js, but can’t abandon the .NET infrastructure in your organization? Are you a Node.js developer who needs access to libraries in the .NET world? Edge.js makes it possible to run Node.js and .NET code in one process, allowing interop between the two. In this talk we’ll explore ways to leverage the best of both worlds.
