Palm Beach IT Users Group, 13 May 14

From our Group Organizer, John Vighetto:
It was great seeing everyone last night. We had a good turnout, and the presentation conducted by Matt Somach of Comcast very impressive and informative.

As Matt stated, it’s very important for him to qualify a candidate for VoiceEdge because it is not the right fit for everyone.

When you have a customer that is in need of repair or replacement of a traditional key system, please remember our member Lynne Keane.

Congratulations to everyone that won a prize last night.

I want to thank Matt Somach and Comcast for not only sponsoring our meeting last night, but for the presentation, the food and the beverages.

Deerfield Beach Coders' Cafe, 6 May 14.

From the Invitation:
The Web technology and Web Development advance pretty quickly. By the time you finish reading this paragraph, two new JavaScript libraries will be created and another framework will get pushed to GitHub. Trust me. Go Check! In the .NET community, we've seen our fair share of web frameworks recently. Coincidentally, the authors of these frameworks found themselves essentially building the same components over for running web applications on different server hosts, i.e. IIS, XSP, and self-host. There was an obvious need for some common ground. Enter OWIN, a specification that defines a baseline interface for communication between web applications and web servers. In this talk we’ll explore the OWIN Specification, and what it means for the future of web development in .NET. We’ll also dive into some code and see how OWIN can be leveraged in your web projects today.
