  • BASIC SIG (February 7th, 2017) - VB's ByRef/ByVal (VB's "it just works" approach to CLR ref) and "All About Nullables"

    Rough agenda: * Progress update: Website, Slack.NET... * Discuss ways that you can get involved, regardless of skill level. * ByVal and ByRef, what does this mean along with deeper dive of CLR ref and how VB takes this a step further. * "All About Nullables"  Dim a As Integer?...

Wait, what? OK, so it requires a little explanation… After speaking with several long time MVP’s who were (and, in many ...

  • San Diego ASP.NET SIG - May 19th, 6pm
