Sarasota .NET Developers Group

The Sarasota .NET Developers group has been in existence since 2004. SarasotaDev focuses on building solutions using Microsoft Azure, Visual Studio, SQL Server, Office, and other related tools and platforms. This is a technically oriented group where our monthly 1.5 - 2 hour presentations concentrate on code development and software engineering techniques. 

Meetings are generally held on a Tuesday in the middle of the month. Note that our usual location has changed to: Station 2 Innovation Center (offering coworking and business incubation services) located at 912 7th Ave East, Bradenton, FL 34208 (just east of 9th St. E on the south side of 7th Ave - this is SR-64 eastbound).

Robert Boedigheimer Presenting.

Cryptography 101

Learn the "black art" of cryptography, including public/private and symmetric encryption, hashing, and digital signatures.  Review the basics of cryptography and what techniques are appropriate for various situations.  Discover practical techniques for securing content received on public web sites. 

HTTP/2:  What You Need to Know

The HTTP protocol is now over 15 years old and it has served us well, but a new version will address some of the fundamental problems with how it was implemented “on the wire”.  The changes are based on experience with Google’s SPDY protocol, but standardized for everyone to use.  Major features of the current version such as methods and status codes will be unaffected.  Existing sites should just work with the latest version, but they can drop many of the old tricks they used to squeeze out performance like CSS Sprites and file bundling.  This session will review the basics of what is being changed, how to best utilize the new protocol, and dispel rumors (such as mandatory encryption).

Robert is a Microsoft MVP, and has been in Florida to present at SarasotaDev several other times over the past several years. Please welcome him and enjoy his latest talk series.
