Fellow .Net Users, Thanksgiving is upon us and the .Net User’s Group is very thankful this season.  We recently had our 2015 sponsorship drive and we sold out all 11 slots for the entire year in less than 24 hours.  Simply amazing.  What this says to me is that our community is vibrant and a lot of organizations are willing to stand with us in supporting it.  We’re now positioned to start recruiting for our speakers for the year so if you’re interested, please make sure to reach out and let Brian and myself know.  There’s a lot happening in the .Net world, and we’re excited to share with you in your experiences. But I’m getting ahead of myself, we’re still in 2014 and we still have 1 remaining meeting for the year.  It’s been a while since our next speaker has spoken at the group, but I’m sure that those of you who have heard him before will be excited.  Our next .Net User’s Group meeting will take place on Thursday December 4th, starting at 6:00 PM.  Food and beverage will be served 15-20 minutes before the meeting starts. Location:

Brian Olson**

Brian Olson has 14 years of experience building web software using the Microsoft platform. Brian has developed solutions using ASP.NET, SQL Server, and ESRI GIS Server software. While he enjoys working with some non-Microsoft tools such as Node.JS, the .Net platform is his primary tool of choice. **Topic:

ASP.Net vNext**

It’s a whole new world out there.  ASP.NET is going through a few changes to adapt to this new world.  We will take a look at the some of the new tools in ASP.NET vNext that will help keep it at the forefront of web development.  What are these changes to the project file?  What are Grunt and Bower and how are they used by ASP.NET?  How do we run ASP.NET on Mac or Linux?  We will take a look at these questions and more during this conversation. **Sponsor:
