LIDNUG & Wintellect Presents – .NET Performance Tuning with John Robbins
One of our most highly anticipated events and presenters is coming up in just a few days (11th of October, 2012) – namely the return of John Robbins. Last time we caught up with John we had a full house, and with currently 700+ registered to attend it’s bound to be a blast.
.NET is an amazing environment. It runs on everything from a small phone in your hand, to the latest touch tablet, to your company’s server, to a cloud environment handling tens of thousands of transactions per second. But with that flexibility comes problems. When your applications performance slows down the issues go from “working OK” to “we are going to get fired any minute” literally overnight. You’ve got a performance problem with your .NET code so what the heck do you do? In this session John Robbins will talk about the wonderful tools you have to find and fix those performance issues once and for all. There’s a lot of deep thinking over performance that most developers haven’t done because they don’t need to do it every day. Fortunately, John’s done that thinking for you so join him for this session and learn to tackle .NET performance problems. No matter if your performance problem is algorithmic or memory-based you’ll see how to deal with those issues once and for all.
Register to attend the webinar and you’ll be entered to win a Wintellect virtual training course (a $499 value). The winner will be announced during the webinar. You must be present to win.
The LIDNUG and Wintellect series of events are sponsored by Syncfusion.

In less than 24hrs we’ll have our first session focused on Windows 8 and we probably couldn’t be in better hands than with Jeremy Likness.
Jeremy has presented for LIDNUG before and it was one of those sessions where you seriously didn’t want to leave your desk for any reason, just so you didn’t miss anything. Tomorrow’s event promises to be even better!
What i think is cool is that Jeremy will being doing all the demos from a slate, running Windows 8 of course. We did a dry-run today and it worked a treat. Pretty gutsy of Jeremy tho…

Very much looking forward to this event as I attended a full day of geeky goodness, here in Australia, this weekend, on exactly this topic – well, Windows 8 development anyways.
We had a great session last night (couldn’t attend due to the storm that hit us..Cat 3 apparently – we all blame my fellow colleague MA for bringing the british weather to Perth).
Anyways, enough of blaming poor MA, what we have here is a brilliant session that’s probably going to surprise some people.
All of our events are recorded and uploaded to our YouTube channel
Check out the upcoming list of events from LIDNUG – bound to be something to interest you.
Just a quick heads up to all of you that the next event at LIDNUG is happening on the 31st of January (10AM PT).
This time around it’s presented by no other than Omar Al Zabir and he’s going to take us through how he sorted out scaling a web site from thousands of hits to millions of hits.
Learn how I have scaled an ASP.NET AJAX Web 2.0 startup and an high volume enterprise webapp to millions of users. You will learn some advance tips like optimizing asp.net cookies, fine tuning asp.net membership stored procedures, implementing CDN, distributing content for faster parallel load, tuning asp.net pipeline for maximum performance out of commodity hardware.
About the Presenter:
Omar is the Chief Architect of Software-As-A-Service (SaaS) Platform in BT, living in London, UK. As the name suggests, I get to do the cool stuffs at BT.
He was born in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Did his B.Sc. in Computer Science. When he was 9, Omar won the Best Competitor Award in the first Nationwide Computer Programming Contest. Media made his life complicated for a year. Omar’s first startup, when he was 15, was quite successful, where he built 4 multimedia titles and sold in a CD. There was a fun app for pre-school kids to learn alphabets, rhymes, puzzles; one app for teenagers to learn Chemistry with animations, 3D illustrations and a sci-fi style user interface and one app for learning Astronomy with hundreds of videos and clips from Nasa, and one for Tourism in Bangladesh with interactive maps, nearly 400 popular attractions’ photo and description. Omar had built an HTML rendering engine that could render styled text, inline image and video, using Visual Basic 5. If you know VB 5, you would recognize that as a noble-prize candidate effort.
Omar has been awarded the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional award 6 times in a row.

LIDNUG is now an open group – What does this mean? well, for all sense and purposes LIDNUG will continue to be the #1 spot for .Net.
This was a feature that was introduced a little while back by LinkedIn – It used to be so that all group discussions were closed and only accessible by members. This meant that if you had a great discussion going, or saw somebody else who had a good one going, that you really couldn’t link to it via twitter and/or blogs/forums etc. The problem always was that LI would annoyingly ask you to log in first – and then once you’d logged in you didn’t get redirected on to the discussion you wanted to read in the first place. That’s all been fixed now tho – can link directly to discussions in the group and people will be able to access them.
The differences are:
a) old discussions are now archived and only available to previous members. (this was done so that privacy policies were still kept a priority)
b) new discussions can be read and linked to by the general public – even non-LinkedIn members.
c) in order to post a discussion or comment you still have to be a group member.
So as you can see, nothing major has changed – we thought that with the absolutely fantastic discussions we have from you, the members, it’d be a shame to withhold this from other people.
So, welcome to a new chapter of LIDNUG – this is 2011!
