Fellow .Net Users,
I hope you all have had a chance to enjoy your summer. I’ve spent mine doing some camping trips with my family and learning more about the massive improvements Microsoft is making to Azure. If you haven’t had a chance to play around with it, make sure you take some time. There are some very cool things happening in this space. If you have an MSDN subscript then you already have free access and if you’re looking for an introduction, Microsoft offers free access for a limited time. It’s definitely worth your time.
As always we’re ready for our next .Net UG meeting which will take place one week from today on Thursday August 28th starting at 6:00 PM. Food and drinks will be served about 15-20 minutes before the meeting starts.

Ever wish you could setup your development environment with the push of a button? Tired of services and applications bogging down precious development machine resources? Ever been eager to try out something new but put off by all the dependencies you have to install into your environment? What if you could develop in a reproducible environment that was a clone of production, or pretty close to it? What if you could version the scripts to create this environment so that others could checkout the project and spin up the exact same environment?
