Upcoming Events

  • Introduction to Virtual Reality

    If you are interested in VR, then this is the place to come and give it a try.

    If you already have some VR hardware (or anything else we can ooh and ahh over), please bring it along. I should have enough to keep everyone busy, but more is better. I'll be bringing an Oculus DK1, Oculus DK2, my new Samsung Gear VR, and even my super awesome Google Cardboard ;) If there is enough interest, I may also bring my racing/flying sim rig.

    If anyone has a specific request for a game to demo, please let me know ahead of time so I can get it installed prior to the meeting.

  • Fridays @ the Corridor - CODEtalk- Monolithic vs. Microservices Applications

    Traditionally, the monolithic architectural style has dominated application development. This server-side approach method puts all of its functionality into a single process and scales by replicating the monolith on multiple servers. Issues arise, however, with scalability and as more applications are being deployed to the cloud, the monolithic style has given way to a new approach- a microservice architecture style- where services are independently deployed and scalable.

    At the April Fridays @ the Corridor, we examine these two architectural styles and discuss the trend towards the microservices architecture style. Tom Wilson from Jack Russell Software and BoomTown's, Jason Finneyfrock, will share their insights on what one style will dominate the future of app development – or perhaps another approach is on the horizon? Register HERE
