Start Me Up: Configuration and DI in ASP.NET Core

Adoption of ASP.NET Core continues to grow in development shops around the world. The .NET community offers a nice selection of templates for getting a new project moving quickly. On the other hand, more complex applications may require you to go deeper than what comes out of the box. The configuration and dependency injection systems in ASP.NET Core are flexible and powerful, and it is worth understanding the details of how a modern web application on the framework spins up on start.

This session provides a walkthrough of the Startup and Program classes, the host and app builders, configuration, DI, and middleware. Learn how to build your own middleware providers and pipeline. Create custom extension methods to register services with your application quickly and easily. Leverage the power of ASP.NET Core to work best for you and your organization.

Monday, February 24, 2020 at 6:00:00 PM Rockhurst University Community Center 5401 Troost Ave, Kansas City, MO

Our February speaker will be Eric Hendricks, with Red Hat, speaking about Open Source Security Myths! Food will be sponsored by OWASP. We will be back at the Rockhurst Community Center this month - it will likely become our new location.

Busting Security Myths of Open Source

Developers are constantly being asked to make more and more powerful
applications. The more feature-rich the application, though, the more
prone to risk it becomes. Many have thought the solution is to keep the
code base locked up tight, that open source is undesirable. The truth,
however, is quite the opposite! More eyes on code has proven to
increase the quality and security of the modern application.

Solutions Architect for Red Hat. Open Source Advocate. Fighting against
the forces of burnout and poor work life balance, The IT Guy stands for
DevOps, Open Source, and an endless supply of gibberish!

When we think about data privacy, it is easy to focus on social media platforms as the primary protagonists (or villains) in the relationship between people and behaviors. In truth, nearly every industry has been actively transforming itself to maximize the economic value hiding in our digital identities. This session explores the reach and value of that hidden data and presents several long-term scenarios for the relationship among technology, regulatory policy, digital property rights and ethics frameworks for data science practices.

This month's presentation will be from Garrett Rathbone. Garrett is an Acquia Certified Grand Master (see https://certification.acquia.com/user/5156), and he will be bringing a special presentation where he will answer your questions. The agenda is up to you. Bring your Drupal/development questions, and he and the group will do our best to answer them.

Questions will be taken completely anonymously! We'll be using https://www.sli.do for taking questions. Even if you think your question is "silly" (no questions are silly, really), the sli.do website allows for anonymous questions to be taken so you can ask freely and openly.

We look forward to seeing you there. Please RSVP by Sun., Feb. 23.
