Fellow .NET Users,

It's time for our next meeting already! Before I tell you about it, I wanted to remind everyone about our new Slack channel. I know many of you have already been enjoying the more interactive conversations happening there. I for one have been having fun with it. We've been sharing a few war stories, talking about how to use React, and much more. If you're still not a member or haven't been active, I encourage you to join and drop into the Techinical-Discussion channel to tell us what you've been working on. You can join via the invitation link:

The next installment of the Omaha .NET User's Group will take place on Thursday, March 1st, starting at 6:00 PM. Food and drink will be served by our sponsor starting 15-20 minutes before the meeting takes place. This is just a few days from the posting of this notice so I apologize for my tardiness. Drat February and it's measly 28 days!

After the meeting, we will again be meeting at Local Beer, Patio, and Kitchen in Millard (4909 S 135th St #113) for drinks and appetizers provider by our friends at Harbinger Partners!

Demystifying the ASP .NET Core Middleware Pipeline
We are going to take an in depth look at the composition approach used for the middleware pipeline in ASP .NET Core. We will dig in to the dirty details of how the pipeline is constructed, configured and executed, looking at some of the built-in middleware components as well as creating some of our own.

We will explore how middleware can be used to augment or short circuit the request pipeline, how the pipeline can be branched to conditionally execute different middleware and some common gotchas when registering and configuring the middleware components.

Finally, we will look at a common scenario of building out a somewhat database agnostic Entity Framework Core project and using the associated middleware configuration to provide different storage models.
