Adnan Masood
Base Class Libraries in the .NET Framework 4.0

Just about everyone who uses Microsoft .NET uses the Base Class Libraries (BCL). In this presentation, Adnan Masood will provide a detailed technical overview of the new additions to the BCL in .NET 4 beta 1 including Support for code contracts, Parallel extensions (tasks, concurrent collections, and coordination data structures), support for tuples, File IO improvements, support for memory mapped files, sorted set collection, support for arbitrarily large integers, generic variance annotations on interfaces and delegates, support for accessing 32-bit and 64-bit registry views and creating volatile registry keys, globalization data updates and compression improvements. This is a code intensive talk so those allergic to slides are encouraged to come.

Adnan Masood is a technical lead in a Monrovia-based financial institution where he develops SOA based enterprise applications, distributed systems, and Web-applications using the Microsoft .NET framework. A Microsoft Certified Trainer, Adnan holds various professional memberships (ACM, BCS,and ACS) and several technical certifications, including MCSD .NET, MCPD .NET, and SCJP-II. Adnan is attributed and published in print media and on the Web, holds a master's degree in computer science from Nova Southeastern University, and is currently pursuing his doctoral studies in machine learning. Adnan has taught Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) courses at the University of California at San Diego and regularly presents at local code camps.

Most Valuable Member 2008/2009. Total points of 26,350 - Volkan Uzun

Once again, Volkan has shown his commitment to the development community and returns as the 2008/2009 MVM. Volkan is constantly spreading his knowledge and helping others to learn. Many times he donates his raffle prizes to other members, or people he knows, who don't have the software. Volkan is very approachable and is always willing to lend a hand.

MVM Runner Up. Total points of 17,980 - Matt Penner

Matt took it upon himself to start videotaping the user group meetings, and is an important member of the user group. He is constantly coming up with new ideas on how to distribute presentations. Matt has given several presentations to the group and continues to amaze with his level of expertise.

MVM Second Runner Up. Total points of 8,360 - Dennis Palmer

Dennis' first IEDOTNETUG Meeting was at the First Annual MVM Event. He said the meeting inspired him to start attending the meetings and has become an essential member of the group. Dennis continually spreads the word about the IEDOTNETUG and started the twitter tag, #IEDOTNETUG.

Free Training from InnerWorkings!

InnerWorkings began with one small aim: to radically transform how software developers learn! Many developers discover new techniques by reading books, shadowing senior colleagues, or listening to instructors. But this means constant study! We want developers to go beyond pure theory and move headlong into practice. In short, we want them to learn by doing. To help get the word out about their pheonominal training techniques, InnerWorkings has worked out a deal to allow IEDOTNETUG members free training on .NET 3.5. All it takes is a simple signup process and away you go. Click here to sign up.

A big THANK YOU to InnerWorkings for this great opportunity!

How'd you like free server space for hosting a website?

Verio has teamed up with the Inland Empire .NET User's Group and INETA to provide all members with free web hosting space. The deal includes 100 MB of disk space, 25 MB of SQL Server space, and un-metered bandwidth. Verio wants to start getting developers valuable experience in dealing with web servers and this is how they're gonna do it. All you have to do, is 1) provide your own domain name, and 2) be a registered member of the IEDOTNETUG, and 3) not use your website for any nefarious dealings. The servers have .NET frameworks 1.1, 2.0, and 3.0 and are integrated with all the Microsoft Visual Studio Editions. They do not come with email servers, but for free, you have the full ability to setup a playground with the latest technology and learn, learn, learn.

Are you interested? I know you are. If you want your free website and hosting space, just send a message.

See you soon!
