A few weeks ago I had the pleasure to meet Corey Haines, an amazing man, full of vision and the abilites to fulfill them, when asked how one becomes a better programmer, he said to me, go to every User group you can find, in any language, in any field.
Listen to Corey, don’t miss this opportunity to gather with your fellow programmers and enjoy their company, you might learn a few things and meet new friends. It might going to be what it takes to move you forward.
Now, enough chit chat, this month meeting will be held in two days, and this time we are going to have two exciting sessions:
Windows 8 – Understanding Metro UX
The Metro UI is a new User Interface designed for Windows 8. But there's more than beautiful fonts and sleek graphics to the Metro UX. Aimed for both PCs and tablets, Windows is undergoing the biggest user experience overhaul since Windows 95. It will change the way users interact with it, and it will change the way we developers think about it. In this session we'll explore the Metro UX and its implications, and take a glimpse at the underlying technological concepts.
Visual Studio Debugging Tricks – in BugAid and Beyond
While most Visual Studio .NET developers use various tools to improve their productivity when writing and refactoring code, there is a noticeable lack of useful tools in the realm of debugging. In this session, we'll explore a new tool called "BugAid for Visual Studio" that enhances the debugging experience by letting you visualize, search and compare live objects data when debugging a C# application. We'll also look at some of the more advanced features of the Visual Studio debugger itself.
