  User Group Night - April 28, 2014 

 Muljadi Budiman
Parallelism in .NET

This session will start with some working introduction to the Task Parallel Library, what it brings to the table for .NET development in comparison to the existing Thread / ThreadPool constructs. We'll also talk about some of the pitfalls and possible weird conditions that can exist with multithreaded development. The session will also talk about the new async and await keywords introduced in .NET 4.5 / Visual Studio 2012. A general look at how we can easily create code that multitasks in the .NET world.

A typical geek / nerd, Muljadi Budiman is generally interested in anything that's new & shiny. He is always trying out new things, recently venturing into Ruby waters, and exposing himself to Java development with Android, Hibernate and Drools experience. His main bread and butter is still .NET, using WPF to create great UI for desktop apps, interfacing with WCF REST Based services, accessing databases using Entity Framework and continue playing with Xcode and Objective-C developing iOS applications.

An Introduction to SAFe: The Scaled Agile Framework

Lean and agile have become the best choices for development teams building software today. The Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), is a framework for implementing lean and agile methods at scale. SAFe is a natural and necessary evolution of Agile upwards into the enterprise to fill a missing void. It provides prescriptive guidance for the individual roles, teams, activities, and artifacts necessary to scale agile from the team to program to enterprise level. Clint Edmonson will present an overview of the framework and lead us in a discussion on how SAFe can positively impact our organizations.

Clint Edmonson has been developing software for over 20 years, working on everything from custom shrink-wrapped software at small start-ups to enterprise architecture and methodology adoption at fortune 500 companies. He is currently an ALM strategist with Polaris Solutions, helping companies deliver amazing software solutions.
