Creating Great UX with Expression Blend
Webtrends

WHO: Corrina Black Corrina Black grew up sketching pictures and cartoons, but didn’t turn to design until she discovered the Web and taught herself to design and code simple websites. She focused instinctively on user flow, interaction, and attractive solutions. Corrina is currently a UX Designer on the Microsoft Developer Division team. To broaden her impact, Corrina pursued a software engineering degree to combine with her passion for user experience design. For Corrina, user experience is what matters. A product that doesn’t solve a problem, is difficult to use, and doesn’t draw the user in, regardless of how amazing the technology, will fail.

TOPIC: Creating Great UX with Expression Blend Corrina will do an intro to Blend and walkthrough the process of creating a great user experience; this will involve SketchFlow because detailing and iterating on user flow, layout, and animations and transitions prior to full-scale implementation is key to great UX design and this is done in tools like SketchFlow. She will also likely walkthrough the process of building a simple application in Blend to show the core functionality of Blend (maybe create a phone application).

Warmup - The Reactive Framework (Rx) in Silverlight At the beginning of the meeting (6pm) our own Eric Sterling of Vertigo will be giving a short introduction to Rx. Have you had trouble writing asynchronous code (including unit testing code)? If so, Rx offers a compelling and syntactically attractive way of handling events.

December PADNUG Party and Windows Phone - Monetization with In-App Purchases
Intel Hawthorn Farms 3 (HF3) Campus

As we normally do in December, we will be having a little bit of EXTRA fun for the meeting!

First, we will be having a much broader food choice than our normal pizza! We'll have a selection of pastas and salads to make your mouth water. Don't worry, though - we'll have a few token pizzas for the die-hards among us :).

Second, Kelly White will be presenting "WinPhone 8 In-App Purchases". This is the critical monetization mechanism for developers today on mobile devices. Windows Phone 8 adds comprehensive support that opens a new world of opportunity to developers. He'll discuss this feature in depth during this session, including demos for implementation and testing!

Third - and I'm really excited about this - our swag pile this month includes a BRAND NEW MICROSOFT SURFACE!!! Seriously!

Finally, we’ll wrap up our evening with After Words at the new BJs Restaurant and Brewhouse at the corner of Cornell and Cornelius Pass Road.

Do NOT miss out on this meeting!

June PADNUG - Let's Talk About the Internet of Things
Intel Hawthorn Farms 3 Auditorium (HF3) Campus

In this course Microsoft's Jeremy Foster gives an introduction to the world of IoT - the Internet of Things. We’ll get definitions for various IoT terms and some bold predictions of the future where the internet is not so much a collection of devices as it is a collection of sensors and gadgets attached to people, vehicles, houses, and a lot more. And we’ll also get the basics of how to write software for these devices using the familiar and rather high level JavaScript language on Node.js. This means that instead of writing difficult code in languages such as C or Wiring, modern IoT hackers can write easy code and have access to the vast number of node modules that already exist. As an example project, you’ll meet Tweet Monkey and see what little it takes to put together your own maker project.

Mobile: The Market, The Web, and Windows Phone’s Future
Webtrends

TOPIC: Mobile: The Market, The Web, and Windows Phone’s Future There are few things more frustrating than reading the tech press in the United States try to cover the mobile market. First Microsoft’s mobile efforts are going nowhere. Six months later, it will be bigger than the iPhone by 2015. Say what?

Let’s back up for a moment from the day-to-day horse race coverage of Android versus iPhone and look at what the big picture trends are in the mobile market. What makes mobile unique? What makes a mobile product successful? And finally does Microsoft have a chance to get back into the mobile game?

Jason Grigsby was one of the project leads on the Obama iPhone Application and helped design the user inferface for the Wall Street Journal's Blackberry application. He founded and organizes Mobile Portland, a local mobile group.

Jason is a co-founder of Cloud Four, a small start-up focused on mobile and web development. He blogs at http://CloudFour.com/blog and provides frequent updates about mobile as @grigs on Twitter.

TOPIC:

CQRS and Windows Azure: A scalable architecture for the Cloud

CQRS. A confusing jumble of letters? Well, yes. CQRS stands for "Command Query Responsibility Segregation", and is an architectural pattern which is rapidly gaining popularity. It offers clear guidance on how to build highly scalable systems that embrace asynchronous operations.

In this talk we'll look at what CQRS is, how it lives up to the promises, and what kinds of systems would benefit from this approach. And then we’ll take the pattern and see what it takes to implement on top of Windows Azure.

PADNUG July Meeting
Intel Ronler Acres RA1 Auditorium

WHEN: Tuesday 07/06/2010 6:00 p.m. Pizza (by Ascentium) 6:30 p.m. Presentation ~8:30 p.m. After Words at Cornelius Pass Roadhouse

WHO:
Chris Goldfarb Chris Goldfarb is a dev for the Intel Information Technology group, and has been writing software for 14 years. .NET has been Chris' main focus since the pre-beta bits were released, and has both developed applications and trained others on the framework. Chris has presented software engineering topics at technical conferences such as the Microsoft Professional Developer's Conference, Intel Developers Group and the Portland Area .NET User Group, which he founded.

He has held positions as board member of the Intel e-Business Group .NET Taskforce and the Technical Infrastructure committee of the International .NET Association (INETA). Chris is Microsoft Certified in .NET and has been Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) in Visual C# for 4 years.

Prior to joining Intel in January 2001, he engineered mission-critical applications for the United States Air Force, United States Strategic Command. Primarily using Java, C++, and Ada, these applications included early-warning, ballistic missile flight path, and nuclear readiness assessment systems.

TOPIC:
MEF?!? Another 3-char acronym out of Microsoft? What is it and why should you care? How does it help deliver extensible applications? How is it different than traditional IoC containers, and what are some scenarios where you would use one over the other, or even both at once? How do you use MEF, and what are some potentials gotchas and considerations for implementation?

In this session learn all this and more. In fact, since nothing beats writing code to learn, bring a laptop with VS2010 RTM installed and help me build a composite application in real-time!

PADNUG June Meeting
Microsoft Portland

Andrew Hay: Making a Mockery of .NET

Andrew Hay is a developer, speaker, author, dad, husband and Chief Belly Scratcher of the family dog. He started over 15 years ago by supporting mainframe assembly language programs which exceeded his own age. A few years after this initial shock treatment, he hooked his wagon to something called Active Server Pages and has been riding the gravy train on the Microsoft platform ever since. Andrew has been an active member of PADNUG since moving from Chicago to Portland in 2002 and he currently works as a developer at Vertigo Software, Inc.

TOPIC:
Making a Mockery of .NET In a return to showing some good ol' code in Visual Studio, Andrew will present a blend of unit testing topics. First, a quick level-set with a sampling of seasoned and fresh unit test frameworks. Next, the discussion will advance to mock object frameworks, and then round out the evening with parameterized unit test frameworks. You'll examine tools like NUnit, Rhino Mocks, MOQ, Typemock Isolator, as well as some Visual Studio 2010 tools including Pex and Moles, two clever incubation projects from Microsoft Research.

PADNUG Not-West: Python for C# developers
Microsoft Portland Office (Pearl District)

Welcome to the PADNUG Not-West meeting! We've had people clamoring for some content on the other side of the hills and there are now people who can help make that happen! This is an experiment, for sure, but one we hope can be a regular feature.

If you love C# and .NET, you may be surprised to see how many of the features you love also exist in Python (often first). Python is a wonderful language. It is a clean high-level language which values readability over many trade-offs. You can build web applications serving billions of monthly page views. You can build cross-platform GUI applications such as DropBox. You can access amazingly powerful database servers such as MongoDB and SQL Server. But did you know many of the things you absolutely love about C# also exist in Python? Lambda expressions - check. foreach loops - check. Rich class library - check. Iterators - check. And there is more. Come learn about all the things you love from C# and see how they are accomplished in Python.

  • WHERE: Microsoft Portland Office (Pearl District) 1414 NW Northrup St Portland, OR 97209-2798

WHO: Scott Hanselman Scott Hanselman works out of his home office for Microsoft as a Principal Program Manager, aiming to spread good information about developing software, usually on the Microsoft stack. Before this he was the Chief Architect at Corillian Corporation, now a part of Checkfree, for 6 years. He was also involved in a few Microsoft things for many years like the MVP and RD programs and will speak about computers (and other passions) whenever someone will listen.

TOPIC: Information Overload and Managing the Flow: Effectiveness and Efficiency As developers, we are asked to absorb even more information than ever before. More APIs, more documentation, more patterns, more layers of abstraction. Now Twitter and Facebook compete with Email and Texts for our attention, keeping us up-to-date on our friends dietary details and movie attendance second-by-second. Does all this information take a toll on your psyche or sharpen the saw? Is it a matter of finding the right tools to capture what you need, or do you need to unplug?

PADNUG: Asynchronous Programming Futures for .NET (C# 5 / VB 11)
Intel Ronler Acres RA1 Auditorium

This session will take a peek into the future and examine some of the features proposed for C# 5.0. This includes studying async methods which are part of C# 5.0 and build on the PFx Task library. We will also briefly look at the PFx Task libraries to gain the necessary background for working with the new language features. Note that Visual Basic 11 will also have these identical features so in essence we'll be covering VB 11 as well.

Presented by Michael Kennedy.

Come join us to watch the keynote address of the Microsoft Build 2015 Conference Day 1, streamed live from San Francisco!

Microsoft has been getting a lot of press lately for revitalizing their business and taking a leadership role in innovation in many key areas [0]. There have been several announcements in the run up to the Build 2015 Developer Conference, from Docker support and Nano Servers [1], to Surface 3 and Azure Service Fabric. Whether your interest is in Windows 10, cloud computing, developer tools, open source, or DevOps -- it is safe to say that Microsoft has more than likely saved up some exciting announcements for the Day 1 keynote at Build [2]. Come join your peers and watch the live stream at the Microsoft Portland office. Stay after the keynote for a free box lunch, discussion, and conversation.

And, of course, there is free wi-fi so you can stay connected with your day job back in the office.

Coffee and morning treats sponsored by Neudesic. Box lunch sponsored by the Microsoft Regional Directors program.

This event is free and open to the public. Seating is limited so please RSVP today.

Agenda 8:00 AM - 8:30 AM : Registration, coffee, morning snack 8:30 AM - 11:30 AM : Build 2015 Keynote streamed live 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM : Lunch and discussion
