Ninty-five percent of the world carries a phone in their pocket. This number is probably closer to one-hundred percent when you consider just the people who are using your applications. Is it possible that you can better connect your users by providing features that connect users via their phones? How about text notifications? Two-factor authentication? Customized call centers? The possibilities are endless. In this presentation, you will be guided through building SMS and voice features into your .NET applications via Twilio. Unlike most presentations, come with your phone in and and use it to interact with some of the great demos lined up!

Here’s the abstract for the session: “For too long we've lived under the tyranny of n-tier architectures. Building systems with complicated abstractions, needless indirection and more mocks in our tests than a comedy special. But there is a better way - thinking in terms of architectures of vertical slices instead horizontal layers. Once we embrace slices over layers, we open ourselves to a new, simpler architecture, changing how we build, organize and deploy systems.”
Web/Mobile sig: hands-on Modern Web App development
We will go through the process of developing a Modern Web App as a group, becoming familiar with the process and gaining experience with some of the possible tool choices along the way.
The emphasis will be on the process and concepts rather than particular tools and libraries. That being said, at times we will be a bit prescriptive to keep things streamlined and do-able in a group setting.
We'll take a look at the basic approach to configuring a data service in AngularJS, then explore several options for getting data. Examples of JSON object in code (for initial dev), NodeJS, ASP.NET MVC, and ASP.NET Web Service.
A user group that brings together .Net developers and technology enthusiasts from around the Triangle of North Carolina.
Membership ranges from brand new developers of .Net, to seasoned practitioners.
Membership is always free and all are welcome.
