"Windows 10 Universal Apps - Part II" by Darren May

Last month we discussed the history of WPF, .NET and what it means for the future. I just scratched the surface of getting into some of the code and details on how to develop Windows 10 Universal apps. I also introduced an Open Source project called Template 10 that provides helpers and templates for building Windows 10 apps. Well, I’m coming back to show more. Even if you don’t plan on developing Windows 10 Universal apps right now. Join us to learn some great C# patterns and who knows you just might leave ready to build the next great app. Please feel free to check out Template 10 on GitHub and bring any comments, questions or suggestions to the meeting.

"Control Your Data Access with Dapper.NET" with Rudy Lacovara

Most of us have some experience with full on ORMs like EF and NHibernate. If you've ever worked with these ORMs and found yourself thinking "This would be so easy if I was just using straight SQL" then you might like Dapper. Dapper was developed by the StackOverflow guys to handle situations where fine grained control over the SQL and performance were an issue. It's an example of a style of data access known as MicroORM and it's kind of awesome.
We'll go over how to use Dapper, talk about the architectural decisions it encourages, and then take a look at how I'm using Dapper is in a real world application.
