    iProduce BNA - Pro iPhone/iPad camera/video Sandbox / Meetup (Nashville)

    This is a new "Meetup" group.

    Our purpose is to advance the skills and practices of anyone creating pro quality Audio/Video/ Photography from iPads and iPhone 6 + 7 platforms.

    The sooner we meet, the sooner you'll be able to share your iProducer "holiday" wish list with relatives, friends and lovers.

    We are open to organizational suggestions, but the starter idea is to plan meeting in places that allow us to dominate the space with sound and images. And perhaps drink beer.

    contact : mclean@mail2sound.com

    Circuit Bending: Exactly What Your Mom Told You Not To Do As A Child

    East Nashville's Gallery Luperca and media artist McLean Fahnestock join forces to bring you Circuit Bending: Exactly What Your Mom Told You Not To Do As A Child. Join us Sunday March 13 at Little Harpeth Brewing to reimagine the possibilities of electronic toys. Circuit bending is the creative, chance-based customization of the circuits within low voltage battery-operated toys and gadgets to create new musical or visual instruments and noise-makers. Bring an old, used toy that still works, open it up, and learn how to make it into your own sound machine. This workshop will get you started. We will cover the basics of circuit exploration, soldering, and switches. The class fee covers an assortment of parts for you to try. Basic tools will be provided but you are welcome to bring your own kit if you would like. Bring a toy or two and make sure you have batteries! The workshop begins at 2:00 PM and will last about 3 hours. Space is limited to 20 participants.

    Azure in your own data center?

    Want to run Azure in your own data center? Want to decide whether to run applications or infrastructure in your own data center or in the cloud dynamically? And change your mind later?

    Microsoft recently announced the first Technical Preview of Azure Stack. Unlike Azure Pack which is an Azure emulator built on top of Windows Server and Systems Center; Azure Stack is real Azure software running in your data center.

    The advantage of this is that there will be application and infrastructure compatibility between public Azure and Azure Stack. That means that you can deploy an application into ether cloud as and when you wish or have applications that span both environments. It represents a whole new paradigm for Hybrid Clouds based on Azure. This is truly Azure Hybrid Cloud V2. :-)

    Come to the next meeting of the Nashville Microsoft Azure Users Group and hear Adnan Hashmi, Enterprise Architect at Deloitte, present an overview of Azure Stack.

    We will be raffling off 7 free one-month all-access passes to Pluralsight on-line training. (Note that Pluralsight also offers any user group member that is currently unemployed a free one month pass as well. Just send an email to unemployed@pluralsight.com listing the group name and your contact information.)

    Mangosteen Крем В Аптеке Лучшие Препараты Для Похудения

    Приобрести можно на веб-сайте http://mang.bestseller-super.ru

    Необыкновенный сироп мангустина – секрет быстрого и вкусного похудения!

    В связи с сегодняшними реалиями жизни, когда из-за интенсивной работы почти не остается времени, чтобы подумать о себе, все острее в социуме стоит проблема излишнего веса. Многие люди, а особенно женщины, планирующие похудеть, пьют целый комплекс «волшебных» порошков и таблеток, которые в теории помогут. Однако, на практике этого, к огорчению, не происходит. Оно совершенно не удивительно – каждая девушка неповторима, обобщенные приемы похудения могут не работать.

    Тем не менее, новый мангустин для похудения разительно отличается от других конкурирующих продуктов на рынке. Давайте разберем почему.

    Пополнеть не страшно, страшно с этим жить!

    Лишний вес – это неприятность, отравляющая жизнь большинства людей. Наши исследования демонстрируют, что более 90% полных людей очень страдают от низкой самооценки и недовольны своим телом, что сказывается на их личной и общественной жизни.

    К огорчению, это не пустые заявления: полнота возникает не просто так, а с физическими и психологическими проблемами:

    • Опасное последствие ожирения - диабет. Заболевание опасно, первым делом, тем, что часто становится предвестником инсульта.
    • За лишним весом следуют множественные гормональные изменения. Они опасны тем, что способны помешать завести ребенка.
    • Девушки с излишним весом больше подвергаются головным болям и перепадам давления, что может пошатнуть нервную систему и усложняет жизнь. Особенно это ощущается в знойное время года.
    • Довольно часто полнота приводит к варикозу и остеохондрозу.
    • Проблемы с сердцем, которые ведут к сердечным катастрофам.
    • И, конечно же, полнота влияет на дыхание.

    Полнота зрительно прибавляет человеку от 7 до 10 лет, делает его значительно менее привлекательным в глазах окружающих и самого себя.

    Уникальное средство для уникальной Вас

    Предпосылки полноты бывают совершенно различными: остаточные последствия родов, гормональные сбои, нежная любовь к сладкому, неактивный образ жизни, невозможность правильно питаться по причине тяжелого графика работы, медленный метаболизм. Точно также, как и разными бывают характеристики худеющих людей – начиная от возраста и роста, заканчивая качеством сна. Это далеко не всегда будет зависеть от воли самого человека – так как не он определяет установки собственного организма. Но разбираться с полнотой в любом случае приходится.

    Практически все современные средства для похудения обобщают приведенные выше показатели, стараясь создать продукт, который способен помочь каждому человеку. Мы пошли иной дорогой.

    Мангустин, сироп для быстрого и качественного похудения – это продукт, который создается индивидуально под каждого клиента учитывая все особенности организма. Четыре года мы выполняли исследования и еще два – разрабатывали формулу, чтобы Вы были полностью довольны эффектом.

    Стоит объяснить, по какой причине наше средство называется «Мангустин» – мангуст, как и манго не имеют с ним совершенно ничего общего. Дело в том, что главным ингредиентом сиропа стал мангустин – это тропический фрукт, который растет в Таиланде. Он знаменит своей очень низкой калорийностью, а также витаминами и микроэлементами. Тем не менее, настоящий мангустин купить в супермаркете и худеть употребляя его не удастся. Так как перевезти плод в больших объемах в страны СНГ — значит потерять половину его пользы. Поэтому мы экстрагируем все активные вещества из фрукта и все это превращается в сироп, который дает возможности отделаться от избыточного веса. Кроме всего прочего, в препарате применяются еще приблизительно 30 веществ натурального происхождения из множества тропических стран, так как мы ищем для Вас самые действенные ингредиенты.

    Как Вы заметили, все новейшие технологии, которые собрал в себе ставший популярным Мангустин – порошок остались в прошлом, как и таблетки. Мы постоянно заботимся о комфорте при приеме нашего препарата. В связи с этим был создан сироп, который быстро разводится в воде, а затем принимается внутрь.

    Продуктивность нашего средства давно подтверждена на практике. Если вы будете интересоваться откликами людей на Мангустин, отзыв за отзывом от удовлетворенных покупателей убедят Вас сделать покупку. Как женщинам, так и мужчинам, с совершенно разным списком персональных особенностей и характеристик подойдет Мангустин – реальные отзывы от тех, кто проверил действие сиропа на себе, Вы разыщете на всевозможных веб-сайтах про похудение.

    Где купить такое чудо?

    Обращаем внимание на то, что отыскать Мангустин в аптеке своего города или в каком угодно онлайн-магазине нет возможности. Заказать качественную продукцию на сегодняшний день можно только на нашем сайте, несмотря на все хитрости бессчетных мошенников.

    В случае если Вы хотите худеть эффективно и вкусно, покупайте Мангустин – цена приятно удивляет, а город проживания не будет проблемой. Поскольку мы осуществляем доставку по Российской Федерации, странам СНГ и даже по всей Европе.

    At Lonely Planet we're rebuilding our all our products and services on top of a new hypermedia API platform. I'd like to share a few things we've discovered about API tools and API documentation along the way.

    • The vision: how API tools and consumer-driven contracts can support API product development and continuous delivery
    • The contenders: the major tools like Swagger vs RAML vs Apiary API Blueprint vs I/O Docs vs Cucumber
    • The decision: how we used a framework to evaluate the tools, and the choices we made

    NashDotNet: Getting started with ServiceStack

    ServiceStack is a config-free, code-first web and services framework embraced around Martin Fowler’s remote-service best-practices in idiomatic C#. Its message-based design provides the most advantages for remote services encapsulating them in their most re-usable form allowing the same service to be called in REST, SOAP, MQ services enabling .NET’s most succinct, end-to-end typed API.

    ServiceStack’s Web Services Framework is an alternative to WCF, WCF/REST, .asmx, Web-API, MVC, WebForms, WebPages, CSF, WSE, WCF DataServices, RIA Services, and System.Messaging.

    We’ll dive head first into ServiceStack and show how quickly we can build a full Web API from scratch using the ServiceStack Framework and ServiceStack’s own ORM, OrmLite.

    Laser-Intense Focus for Programmers with Dave Leeds

    Every developer loves to get absolutely immersed in the code. When you're in the zone, the rest of the world fades to the background. The code becomes more and more vivid, and your solutions become more and more elegant. Before you know it, five hours have passed and it's already time for lunch.

    But for most programmers, the typical day involves getting bombarded with emails, instant messages, shoulder taps, and other distractions. We simply can't write excellent code with fragmented attention. In order to produce our best work, we have to eliminate distractions and start programming with a laser-intense focus.

    In this talk, we'll devise effective strategies for dealing with many different kinds of distractions. Topics will include:

    • Optimal settings for alerts and reminders

    • How to visually configure your applications in a way that maximizes your focus

    • How to organize your applications and IDE in order to make it lightning fast to find the window you need

    • Strategies for working with other developers in a busy or noisy office

    • Open discussion for focus techniques that have worked for you!

    Nashville API Enthusiasts \ Implementing Evolvable API Services with Mike Amundsen

    The "API First" meme is gaining momentum and more developers are charged with creating stable, flexible API backends for smartphone and other client platforms. Most server developers continue to rely on well-known frameworks for generating "scaffolding" code to handle routing and serialization. However, as reliance on API services increases, additional attention needs to be paid to extending service life, handling changes to the interface over time, and providing a highly scalable platform for mobile and lightweight client devices without upsetting the existing third-party ecosystem..

    In this talk, Mike reviews a common implementation model for API services that need to last a long time, support change without breaking existing clients, and can easily scale up (and out) as request volumes increase. Based on material from his O'Reilly video series, "Designing APIs for the Web", this talk covers both the concepts and the source code needed to implement evolvable API services.

    NashDotNet: Josh Bush - CQRS and Event Sourcing

    As kids we learned everything we already need to know about Event Sourcing, just follow the breadcrumbs! Real world applications are rarely simple enough to fit into the mold that cookie cutter tools provide. What happens when the requirements for that “simple” piece of software grow in a direction that is unexpected? Often the end of a project becomes a series of tradeoffs between performance and maintainability.

    How can we write clean code that will solve our basic use case now and have enough flexibility to adapt to future requirements? Event sourcing allows us to see not only what changed with our data, but the reasons why it changed. In this talk you’ll learn how Event Sourcing and CQRS can keep you out of the oven. Along the way, I’ll share some lessons learned from building a real application using these techniques.

    About Josh Bush

    In July's meetup, Joseph Banta will review an approach for assembling a web app using the Google Web Toolkit (GWT). The GWT provides a mechanism for developers to implement the user-interface and back-end logic all in java, with the client-side code compiling down to dynamic javascript-driven HTML. Joseph will go over some of the basics of interacting with the GWT, and will review a couple of complete applications that are driven by the framework.

    The event will be recorded via Google+ Hangout On Air and will be viewable via youtube:

    Nash F# : Quarterly Community Code Sprint

    The F# community needs you!

    The idea of “community code sprint” is to bring together active members of the community to a single place for a fun event where we can hack together on interesting projects, fix some of those long-standing bugs and feature requests, write amazing samples for talks, improve (or create!) documentation, and more.

    We’ll have a room available for an entire day (so bring a charger ;-)), but we do not expect that everyone can spend the whole Sunday coding! So, feel free to come for half of a day (but please mark this in the poll, so that we know how many spots are free for others).

    Who should come and why? Come if you:

    • contributed or created some F# open source project

    • want to start contributing, but don’t know where to start

    • want to do F# talks or write F# blogs, but need some feedback and help

    What will we be working on? How to get ready?

    To make the most from the day, you should come with some idea about what you want to do (or what projects are you interested in) and with a working machine where you can compile & run the project. If you’re not quite sure, then ask on Twitter (#fsharp, @NashFSharp), or at the F# open source mailing list: http://groups.google.com/group/fsharp-opensource, or take a look at http://fsharp.org/community/projects and find a project another project that needs your help!

    The exact topic very much depends on you, but the organizers can help you contribute or write a talk about nearly anything F#-related!

    We look forward to improving the community with you!

    NashDotNet - Clean Code: Writing Code for Humans

    Inspired by Steve McConnel’s “Code Complete”, Uncle Bob’s “Clean Code” and Andrew Hunt’s “The Pragmatic Programmer”, this session reviews best practices for writing code in a style that’s easy to create, maintain and understand. We have a lofty goal: programming style as documentation. We’ll discuss concrete methods to get you there and give you a vocabulary for pragmatically evaluating code quality.

    Various refactoring techniques, code smells, anti-patterns, and rules of thumb are discussed including fail fast, return early, separation of concerns, arrow code, magic numbers, the boy scout rule, being “stringly typed”, DRY, the stepdown rule, table-driven methods, the importance of staying native, techniques for finding subtle redundancy, reinventing the square wheel, when to create a method, doing comments right, horizontal and vertical density, and simple design patterns. Part of this session involves refactoring a confusing and ugly chunk of code into something beautiful, easy to read and maintain. While examples are in C#, coders in any language should be able to follow along and apply the principles discussed.

    About Cory House

    I’m fortunate enough to love what I do. I’ve been in Kansas City designing and implementing solutions in website development and software engineering for nearly 15 years. I author online software training courses for Pluralsight and enjoy working in a wide variety of environments and languages for small businesses, large corporations, government, and out on my own doing freelance work.

    I’m a C# MVP and passionate about building rich custom web apps using the latest technologies and specialize in C# .Net Web Forms and MVC, jQuery, jQueryUI, Knockout with Durandal, LINQ-2-SQL, Entity Framework, and KendoUI. While I focus on web development, I recognize there’s no silver bullet technology. I’m a believer in using the right tool for the job and I find creating apps that make life easier for others is its own reward.

    NashDotNet Lab : Build a Customized MVC eCommerce Site in 1 Hour

    For those of us who have spent most of our careers building business applications, the prospect of creating an e-commerce storefront can be quite daunting. Not only do you have to deal with calculating tax, estimating shipping and accepting payments, but employees need a way to manage products, discounts and marketing content. Thankfully, there’s an open source e-commerce solution written in Microsoft ASP.NET MVC5 named nopCommerce that provides all this functionality and much more.

    This workshop was designed to ramp everyone up on the Model-View-Controller (MVC) architecture, introduce advanced concepts used throughout the site such as Dependency Injection, and walk through the process of working with nopCommerce. By the end of the evening everyone should have first-hand experience building plugins that can be packaged and sold online.

    Responsive Design, by Colin Lord

    The first time I tried to code out a fully responsive site felt a lot like the first time I tried to run a 10k: it just made me tired and angry. But now? I love running and I can’t imagine building a large site that isn’t responsive.

    I’ll be discussing responsive development: what it is, why it’s better than a separate mobile site, why it should be approached differently than a native app, and best practices that I’ve found. We’ll be looking at a couple live sites I’ve built so if you want to follow along, bring your smartphone and/or tablet.

    NashDotNet: Using C#'s Async Effectively

    Topic: Using C#’s Async Effectively: Visual Studio 2012 brought many new features, but few as exciting as the new language support for asynchrony in C# and VB.Net. While the new async and await keywords provide huge benefits when writing asynchronous code, they also bring potential danger. Async introduces new opportunities for confusion, incredibly messy abstractions, and the types of subtle bugs that cause nightmares to developers everywhere.

    This talk will focus on how to think about asynchrony in general, when to use async, specific pitfalls arising from async and await, and some general guidelines to follow when creating asynchronous libraries and composing asynchrony in your own code.

    Speaker: Reed Copsey, Jr. creates scientific software. He is the CTO of C Tech Development Corporation, a company developing 3D software for the Earth Sciences. He is an avid contributor on Stack Overflow and the MSDN Forums, the founder of the Bellingham Software Developers Network, and a Microsoft MVP in Visual C#.

    NashDotNet Lab - Xamarin

    Lab: Xamarin

    If you’re a C# (or F#!) lover and want to develop mobile applications across iOS, Android, and Windows Phone, then Xamarin deserves your attention. Never heard of Xamarin? Not to worry. They’re the clever folks who developed Mono for Linux more than ten years ago, and formed Xamarin roughly two years ago with a laser focus on the cross-platform mobile development with C# and .NET.

    In this lab our primary mission is to get everyone writing, compiling, and running Android and/or iOS applications with Xamarin and C#. We’ll start with a Hello World type sample and then extend a sample application with more meat on its bones.

    This will be an inclusive experience; no person will be left behind and all questions/discussions are welcome. It will be a fun time for all!

    • Bring a laptop to the event. Macs are required to write iOS applications. Android apps can be authored on Mac and Windows.

    • Download Xamarin Studio for either Mac or Windows (http://xamarin.com/download) and Xamarin’s SDKs (Android and/or Mac). I will bring copies of Xamarin software on thumb drives if it’s feasible. Ideally, you’ll take care of this step before the lab.

    • Bring your mobile devices, too. iOS has a nice simulator which is perfect for development. Android’s emulator is not so amazing. We’ll make do for the event, but bring your Android devices if you have them.

    About Ben Henderson

    Ben is a partner and senior software engineer at Firefly Logic with special emphasis on mobile technology and startups. Ben is veteran native mobile app developer who switched to Xamarin after discovering the company at Microsoft’s BUILD conference last November.

    Cross-cutting concerns are everywhere: caching, logging, transactions, and more. These can make your code a tangled, scattered mess.

    In this presentation, I will define cross-cutting concerns, and show you techniques to refactor cross-cutting concerns, including dependency injection; the decorator pattern; and Aspect-Oriented Programming (AOP) tools like Castle DynamicProxy and PostSharp. I’ll explain the benefits and trade-offs of each design decision so that you will be confidently prepared to master cross-cutting concerns.

    NJUG Meeting - Folding Data with Scala

    Join us to learn the basics of folding data with Scala. People often duck when they run into blog entries written about folding, because other terms tend to clutter these writings like: endofunctors, applicatives, category theory, monads & monoids, and other functional lingo that is confusing as all get out.

    Forget about it! We will explore the basics of folding without ANY of that other goo! We will look at some real simple financial data you can process on your calculator, and see how folding makes it easy to digest 'em using Scala.

    MongoDB with Derick Rethans of 10gen

    NOTE: SPECIAL DATE - The day for this meeting will not be the second Tuesday of September due to the speaker coming from out of town. This is a special case and will only affect this one event. After this, we will return to our second Tuesday of the month meeting date.

    MongoDB is an open source, document-oriented (no-SQL) database designed with both scalability and developer agility in mind.

    Derick Rethans, an internationally recognized expert on MongoDB, will be visiting us in Nashville as part of a series of presentations around the Southeast in September.

    Derick will be giving an introductory presentation covering the do's and don'ts, best practices and design schemas for MongoDB.

    The venue for this event will be determined based on registration, which may be closed as the event approaches, so please register early.

    Nashville .NET User Group - .NET + CQRS + Erlang

    Join us this Thursday as we explore .NET, CQRS, and Erlang with the one-and-only Bryan Hunter. Food and socializing starts at 6:00 PM, presentation starts at 6:30 PM, followed by great give-aways. For more information, go to http://nashdotnet.org/

    .NET + CQRS + Erlang : Architectural S'mores

    The squares run away from CQRS, the hipsters run away from C# (aka “leaving .NET”), and who the heck has even heard of Erlang? In this session we will demonstrate how these three anti-heroes can join together to form an effective, non-traditional, badass way of building beautiful, scalable, maintainable systems. What is CQRS? CQRS is an architectural pattern with two goals 1) commit technological heresy 2) separate reads from writes at the system level. What’s Erlang? An industry-proven functional programming language that simplifies writing reliable, concurrent, distributed systems. What’s .NET? OK, stop with the silly questions. Well why these three? Many of the ideas of CQRS dovetail perfectly with the sweet-spots of Erlang… er, um… until you get to the UI part. Erlang doesn’t have much to say about the CQRS tenet of task-based UIs, but Microsoft does— search “Microsoft Inductive User Interface” and you’ll see what I mean. Erlang + CQRS + .NET “Go Team!”

    Speaker: Bryan Hunter

    Bryan Hunter is a geek, a founding partner of Firefly Logic and a Microsoft MVP in C#. Bryan is obsessed with Lean, functional programming (Erlang, C# and F#), CQRS and Caliburn.Micro. He has been speaking on each of these subjects tirelessly for years at meetups, bars, user groups, bars, regional conferences and bars. You can say hi to Bryan on Twitter (@bryan_hunter), read his blog at Fresh Brewed Code, and see what Firefly Logic is all about here: fireflylogic.com
