For those who missed it, our DC ALT.NET group will meet on January 15th at 7PM.  I'm hoping for a great turnout of passionate developers in the DC Metro area.  Hope you can make it.  Also, don't forget to join the list as we discuss more issues and our next meeting stuff.

The meeting this month will bring ALT.NET to CMAP.  Are you a developer who always keeps an eye out for a better way? Do you look outside the mainstream to adopt the best practices of any development community, including Open Source, Agile, Java, and Ruby communities? Are you always looking for more elegant, more simple, more maintainable solutions? If so, then you might be an ALT.NET practitioner!
This group follows the Open Space Technology model.  In Open Space, a facilitator explains the process and then participants are invited to co-create the agenda and host their own discussion groups.
This model follows the four basic principles:
  • Whoever comes are the right people
  • Whatever happens is the only thing that could have
  • Whenever it starts is the right time
  • When it's over, it's over
Topics for discussion can include the following as well as others:
  • Model View Controller Pattern (ASP.NET MVC/MonoRail)
  • Inversion of Control (IoC) containers and Dependency Injection (Spring.NET/Castle Windsor/StructureMap)
  • O/RM Tools (NHibernate/ActiveRecord/Entity Framework/LINQ)
  • Test Driven Development
  • Domain Driven Design
  • Behavior Driven Development
  • Design by Contract and Spec# (my topic I'll be bringing)
  • Enterprise Design Patterns in .NET
Time and Location:
Tuesday, January 15, 2008 7:00 PM

SM Consulting
1306 Concourse Drive
Suite 200
Linthicum, MD 21090

Come, participate, and make your voice heard!  Come meet passionate developers like yourself in the active discussion!  We are looking to host the next one in Virginia and have a roving location per month so that more people in the metro DC area can participate.  Posted on Sunday, January 13, 2008 11:26 PM User Groups , ALT.NET , Spec# | Back to top
