    Learn about Reactive Spring w/ Josh Long and Mark Heckler

    Spring 5 is almost here! One of the most exciting introductions in this release is support for reactive programming, building on the Pivotal Reactor project to support message-driven, elastic, resilient and responsive services. Spring 5 integrates an MVC-like component model adapted to support reactive processing and a new type of web endpoint, functional reactive endpoints. In this talk, we'll look at the net-new Netty-based web runtime, how existing Servlet code can run on the new world, and how to integrate it with existing Spring-stack technologies.

    Catapulting Yourself Into Windows IoT Core with Ian Lee

    Have you ever wanted to build an Internet connected catapult or maybe just a door that is unlocked via facial recognition? If so, then you need to know how to build hardware. One of the best things to come from Microsoft in recent years is Windows IoT Core. It’s a Windows operating system that runs on the credit card size Raspberry Pi computer. With it you can build apps that can read sensors and control hardware as well as connect all that information to the Internet. In this session I’ll give you all the knowledge you need to get you started in the exciting world of hardware development using the Raspberry Pi + Windows IoT Core by building an Internet connected catapult. You may want to bring a hard hat!

    During the day, I’m the Chief Architect at Employer Advantage Healthcare Solutions where I build database and analytics applications. By night, I spend most of my time exploring electionics, the IoT, and 3D printing. I’m the founder & President of the Nashville Microcontrollers Makers’ group (NashMicro). I’m also an AllJoyn Ambassador for the Allseen Alliance (a Linux Foundation project) and I lead the AllJoyn Nashville users’ group. I document my projects and research on my blog at http://ianlee.info. I also occasionally blog for MAKEzine.com. Microsoft MVP in Windows Development.

    The Nashville .NET User Group meets every second Thursday of the month at Corizon Health in Maryland Farms (Brentwood, TN).

    Introduction to .NET Core with Steve Brownlee

    The next version of the .NET Framework - .NET Core - pulls in some best practices from the open source software world, and becomes cross-platform in an effort to revitalize interest in the platform from young developers, and startups.
    I’ll be briefly talking about, and then showing examples of, the following major features:

    1. Dependency Injection

    2. Middleware

    3. Working on the Command Line

    4. NuGet Package Manager

    5. Kestrel

    The most interesting feature is that all coding with be done on OSX.


    Steve Brownlee is dedicated to helping teach the next generation of software developers by providing people with a solid understand of the core technologies used today, and then expanding into how to be a valuable contributor.
    Brownlee has been developing software since 1980, when he programmed his TRS-80 to do his math homework for him. Since then, he grew up with the World Wide Web explosion and discovering all the new technologies that got invented to exploit its capabilities. 37 years later, he wants to take all the knowledge and skills he has accumulated and teach a new generation how to be software developers.

    Last meeting we had a good discussion around scaling Agile and it was mentioned many times how critical the Product Owner role is to not only scaling, but Agile in general. This meeting it seems everyone wanted to talk more about that!

    So what does a Product Owner actually do? What are qualities of a good Product Owner? Who makes the best Product Owners?

    Do you have a really good PO in your organization? Are you struggling with that role? Come share your experience!

    Food will be ready at 11:30 and the discussion will start at 12:00. 

    NO CONFERENCE LINE: Due to difficulties in logistics and a diminished experience for attendees, we are no longer going to host our conference line for the meeting.

    Thanks to our host and sponsor Vaco for giving us the meeting space and buying lunch!

    Automated Testing - Rhyme or Reason (or both)?

    Automated tests can provide quality and reliability to your codebases.  They have become so popular that methodologies such as TDD have hit mainstream.  But are they really that magical?  Do they really always provide value with minimal cost?  Should we ALWAYS write tests and write tests first?  In this talk, we will dive into the concepts of automated tests, look at sample usage of testing libraries (JUnit/Mockito), learn the basics of TDD and more importantly, discuss tradeoffs.  To wrap it all up, we'll open the floor for discussion around personal experience with automated tests, facilitated by NJUG leader Tim Pote.


    Bio

    Daniel Aquino has been a Java software developer for over 9 years.  He started as a developer working with state government agencies and now currently works for Digital Reasoning on software to help law enforcement combat child trafficking.  He started writing tests mid-way through his career, has made mistakes with testing and continues to learn from them.
