Omaha .Net User Group July Meeting
Start Time: July 30 2015, 6:00 PM

Posted by mruwe at July 22 2015, 10:12 AM

Fellow .Net Users,

I have to say that last month's talk was one of the best I've heard. If you weren't able to attend, you can find the video from the presentation on our homepage. So what's the best way to follow-up and awesome talk? Have another one of course! This month's meeting has an equally compelling topic and presenter so you don't want to miss out. Our next .Net User's Group meeting will take place on Thursday July 30th, starting at 6:00 PM. Food and drink will be served free of charge by our host and sponsor starting 15-20 minutes before the meeting.

Location:

Parking is available on either side of 27th Ave South of Harney, along the North or South side of Harney or in the Parking lot at the rear of the building. The parking lot East of the building has a large sign that says you'll be towed unless you have a permit, but this doesn't apply for our meeting attendees.

Enter on the West side of the building at the main entrance on 27th Ave and go to the 2nd floor, the door will be propped open for easy access to the assembly room.

Topic:
Building with Visual Studio Online
With Team Foundation Server 2015 and Visual Studio Online, Microsoft has made available a brand new cross-platform build technology. This new build technology promises to be simpler to implement and maintain than Microsoft's previous attempts at automating builds. Rather than dealing with complex XML and/or XAML you simply "compose" build definitions by dragging-and-dropping the build activities you need for your specific implementation. The build agents are also must easier to scale and keep up to date than previous build agents. You can even build your Android and iOS apps with it! If you are ready to move away from the complexity of XAML-based build definitions (who isn't?!) then you will definitely want to attend this talk.
