Fellow .NET Users,

It's once again time to get together and hear about .NET technologies and converse about what you've been doing and learning about. We will be meeting in person for this month's meeting.

Kiewit will be giving away a DJI Mini 2 drone along with a $50 Amazon gift card. If all of that wasn't enough to entice you, the presenter, Jim Kudirka, will be talking about a topic that I believe will be beneficial to anyone interested in building long-lasting software. I hope to see you there!

Our next meeting will take place on Thursday, March 31st, starting at 6:00 PM. Food will be served by our sponsor, Kiewit, starting 15-20 minutes before the meeting begins. I hope you'll be able to join us for what I'm sure will be an awesome meeting.

Kiewit Business Center

Kiewit's Business Center is located at:
12720 I St
Omaha, NE 68137

You can park anywhere near the building except, of course, the handicapped stalls. Enter the building at the east side entrance.

Righting code with SOLID design by Jim Kudirka

Have you ever worked on a software project that felt like a death march?  Where you had no hope of success and even if you did release it, you knew it wouldn’t last long.  Have you ever been afraid to make code changes because you weren’t sure if you were going to make the problem worse?  Are you unsure how you should structure your code and software components?  If any of these questions bring back bad memories or remind you of your current projects, then this presentation is perfect for you.

We will walk through a few examples demonstrating how simple design techniques can drastically improve development efficiency and the supportability of our code.  We will begin with a complex bloated service and walk through how we can apply SOLID principles to improve the design and our productivity.

As a result, you will be armed with code design techniques that will set you up for greatness!
