Newport Beach, CA
Topic: Learn to Love Lambdas
I've been talking about lambda expressions for a long time. And they are really cool. A lot of folks have trouble getting over the syntax hurdle. We'll take things step-by-step and see that they are really easy to use once we get over that initial hurdle. And we'll see how lambda expressions can help us introduce functional programming concepts into our C# code. Lots of cool stuff.

Central California .NET User Group
Topic: Dependency Injection: A Practical Introduction
Dependency Injection is another of my favorite topics. The problem is that most developers are introduced to DI with a DI container. DI containers are extremely useful, but they hide a lot of the functionality. We'll take a look at DI concepts without a container so that we can really see the benefits of loose coupling in our code. Once we've got that down, we'll use a DI container and get all of the additional benefits -- but the containers will no longer seem like magic.
I'm excited to be going to the Central California .NET User Group since I've never been there before. I love going to new groups, meeting new people, and seeing what developers are doing in different places. If you'd like me to come out to your group, just drop me a line or request me through INETA.
