Can't Get Enough .NET?

If you are a .NET developer or an information technology professional with a thirst for knowledge and you live in the Springfield, Illinois, area, then the Sangamon Valley .NET User Group (SVNUG) is for you! SVNUG offers local Microsoft technologists the opportunity to connect with other local technology professionals in a fun and engaging environment that emphasizes the power of the group's collective knowledge and experience. SVNUG also provides local .NET professionals with the opportunity to present on technology topics near and dear to them—Windows Azure, Windows Server, Windows 8, Windows Phone, Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), Entity Framework (EF), Silverlight, HTML5 and JavaScript, WinRT, Metro, and many more. Presentations are a great way for members to build their industry knowledge, skill sets, and resumes. Best of all, it's completely FREE!

Join Us! See what a difference working together can make.

Stuff Not Fluff

The Sangamon Valley .NET User Group (SVNUG) is about working together to explore new and fascinating .NET technologies using real-world knowledge and expertise—no more, no less. SVNUG will never be about vendors selling you third-party components or recruiters soliciting you to join their ranks. You will never be sold anything at SVNUG—except the opportunity to explore .NET technology in an open and collaborative environment. SVNUG is about stuff, not fluff.

Give Us an Hour, and We'll Save You Twenty

Let's face it: .NET technology changes fast, and keeping up with it on your own is time-consuming and frustrating. Let the Sangamon Valley .NET User Group (SVNUG) help. From engaging presentations to professional-grade technical videos to the latest news from Microsoft and other industry leaders, SVNUG makes it easy to stay at the top of your game... err... code! Why spend countless hours researching the latest .NET technology on your own instead of utilizing our outstanding presentations, videos, and articles from local, regional, and national .NET experts.

Join Us and discover how giving an hour of your time to SVNUG can save you twenty.

JavaScript for Microsoft and Non-Microsoft Web Development—May 2014

What: "JavaScript for Microsoft and Non-Microsoft Web Development" presented by Dr. Mark A. Lovik
When: Tuesday, May 06, 2014, from 6:00 to 9:00 PM
Where: Conference Room 4, Hilton downtown Springfield (directions)

Join the Sangamon Valley .NET User Group (SVNUG) on Tuesday, May 6th, 2014, from 6:00 to 9:00 PM in Conference Room 4 of the Hilton (downtown Springfield) for our monthly presentation meeting! Dr. Mark A. Lovik will present "JavaScript for Microsoft and Non-Microsoft Web Development."

The web is filled with tutorials and information on how to use JavaScript in web development. The diversity of techniques and approaches using JavaScript can be overwhelming. This talk will focus on how to become productive quickly using JavaScript on your next project (or maybe improve your use of JavaScript).

Mark’s goals for this presentation are the following:

  • Demonstrate how to write organized JavaScript code
  • Share some core tools and libraries to assist JavaScript development
  • List (not duplicate) some good JavaScript resources for getting started quickly
  • Reveal critical habits to avoid JS-specific problems
  • Explain why jQuery is your friend
  • Show how easy it is to implement Ajax for responsive web pages (MVC-specific)

The presentation will start at 7:00 PM. Please join us if you are able! Refreshments will be provided! Also, for members that do not have other parking arrangements downtown, vouchers will be provided for the Hilton parking garage (off of Monroe between 7th and 8th).

Note: The original Entity Framework presentation scheduled for May has been deferred until the June SVNUG meeting because of scheduling conflicts.
