NetPonto reunião 80 Lisbon

Posted: May 22, 2019 in .NET

Next saturday NETPonto community will meet in lisbon for his 80 technical meeting, this time the meeting point will be Instituto Superior de Engenhária de Lisboa (ISEL) on off the oldest engeniering schools of portugal know as one of the technical meca of the computer engeniering learning.

I am a suspect to talk about this becouse ISEL was the place where i had one day dream to study and later where i had dream to be a eng.

NETPonto as you all know is one of the most insightfull and repected technical community in Portugal.


The agenda is also very interesting with  core concepts, not common in public presentations, like per example the second session of my good old friend Pedro Rosa about Garbage Collection.

So with all this what do you need more to come to visit us?!

Hope to see you there 😉


Join us !

A typicall question i recieve from young and very old .net developers is whats the big difference between the various versions off .net, and what should be teir bet.

A fellow Microsoft MVP David Pine had wrote an excellent article about the differences and i would like to share that with our audience:

About .net standard i had start recently to use it at some projects and had been a challenge but the cross platform promise woth the effort.



As technical speaker one of the places where i love to go back from time to time, is to NePonto community stage.

This was the first community where i start to collaborate initial not as speaker but as audience and chating with our pals.

From time to time i have the pleasure to go back to this stage to share some ideias and bring to the community  some off the presentation i have prepared for training and bootcamps where i have the role off technical trainer and speaker.

This session will be dedicated to Angular and what i had learn from the projects i had done with Angular and Microsoft technologies, but also what comes from the R&D pilots i had done for the last 2 years.

Another interesting thing will be to share the stage with my good friend and hoster of  NetPonto community Nuno Cancelo. Nuno is someone who have a lot to teach and has a funny way to present things.

As we had written in the past in the blog and i had the opportunity to say to some off you on the Microsoft talks where i had been the pleasure to be a speaker, after the Microsoft Connect event a lot of things happen in the .NET ecosystem.

For many developer’s this can be a little scary- A lot of us speaker’s trainers and mentors had been very excited with what is happening on the Microsoft platform World along with what the Technical universe had give us in the last months.




Michael Crump and Sam Basu with the sponsor of Telerik had create a good quick help book who helps you to had a quick look on to the major changes on the .NET ecosystem can bring initial uncertainty and hesitancy.

I think they had done a good work, for developer’s and technical enthusiasts who don’t have the time to make a follow-up of what is happening this can be an excellent kick starter.
