Austin .Net User Group hosts JP Boodhoo for August 13th, 2007 meeting

This is to announce the August meeting of the Austin .Net User Group on August 13th, 2007.  JP Boodhoo is giving one of his Nothin’ But .Net courses in College Station (where I went to college), and I snagged him for a user group presentation.  Here are the full details:

Generics: They’re not just about collections (Level 300, .Net Track)
In this session participants will be introduced to advanced usages of generics outside of the realm of just strongly typed collections. They will learn about how the focus of generics in the realm of collections has clouded the fact that generics can be used to introduce powerful capabilities into your application frameworks and solutions. Practical demonstrations will be utilized to showcase how developers can immediately start harnessing the power of generics in their applications today. People will walk away with new ideas as to how they can leverage generics in their own application development.
