The discussion will primarily focus on tuples and how C# developers can use this very hand option in their applications. Bio:

Many thanks to all attendees for being at  Jennifer Cohen-Louth, Hersel Guerra, and Christine Dickson's presentation on Windstream's SD-WAN and UCaaS Office Suite!

I would also like to welcome a new member to our group, Daniel Sucre.
Welcome Daniel!

We saw how all network traffic can easily be monitored, allocated, tracked, and managed across an organization from a user-friendly (seemed like it to me) web interface. 
  • Carrier Agnostic
  • Dynamic Failover 
  • Bandwidth/Application Performance Monitoring
  • Link Steering
  • Packet Steering
  • FWD Error Correction
  • TCP/IP Restransmit
We saw a real-time presentation Windstream's SD-WAN Dynamic Failover work without a hitch during a cell phone call. 
Most any type of call setup you want can be managed and made right from an app.
You can even add you own custom(er) recorded jingle ringtone of you singing while in the shower. It's your choice.

Contact Jennifer anytime to get more info.

Thanks everyone!

Blockchain 101-The Future of Contracts - Joe Homnick,Microsoft Regional Director

Event info from FlaDotNet:
More information at:

Coders Café - 2017-12-13 - Cendyn, Boca - Blockchain 101 - The Future of Digital Contracts, Joe Homnick

Joe takes you on an easy to understand journey of Blockchain technology. Blockchain is the basis of Cryptocurrencies such as Ethereum, Bitcoin etc., however, extends way beyond these as a framework for Smart Contracts. Blockchain is an emerging way for businesses, industries, and public organizations to almost instantaneously make and verify transactions—streamlining business processes, saving money, and reducing the potential for fraud. At its core, a blockchain is a data structure that’s used to create a digital transaction ledger that, instead of resting with a single provider, is shared among a distributed network of computers. The result is a more open, transparent, and publicly verifiable system that will fundamentally change the way we think about exchanging value and assets, enforcing contracts, and sharing data across industries. The applications using blockchain are almost limitless, ranging from loans, bonds, and payments to more efficient supply chains to even identity management and verification. Joe will also look at the new CoCo Framework and Blockchain as a Service (BaaS) as a means of implementing your own smart contract system.
