July 2015 – Lightning Talks

Once again we are very excited to announce that this July 23rd we will be hosting an all Lightning Talk meeting and you can be one of the presenters!
What are Lightning Talks?
A Lightning Talk is a short 10 to 15 minute presentation on a single topic or idea. Several talks will be presented in a row to the audience.

Who can give a Lightning Talk?
We allow anyone to give a talk on any technical topic that they are interested in and would like to share with the .Net community. No previous speaking experience is required!

If you have never given a talk before, doing a Lightning Talk is a great way to get started. You can try your hand at public speaking without having to put together a full length presentation.

For seasoned speakers, Lightning Talks are a nice way to test out new material and ideas in front of an audience.

All you need to do is pick a topic you would like to present and put together a few slides and short demos that can be completed in 10-15 minutes.

How do I sign up?

If you are interested in doing a Lightning Talk, please send an email to contact@condg.org with your topic by Monday July 20th.

We have room for 6 speakers and it is first come, first serve. Hurry and submit your talks now!

June 2015 - React Quickly

Meeting Topic

React Quickly


Every day it seems that there is a new JavaScript library that comes onto the scene. It’s hard to determine which libraries to spend time on and which ones to ignore. In this talk, we’re going to look at why the ReactJS library (used on high-scale websites such as Facebook and Instagram) is valuable to learn.

Speaker – Ryan Lanciaux and Scott Sanzenbacher

Ryan Lanciaux is a software developer in Northwest Ohio. Although he programs in several languages, his current area of focus is front-end development. He attempts to contribute to the development community through his (often neglected) blog.

Scott Sanzenbacher is a developer who runs Black Mutt media. He creates lots of web applications in a variety of languages. When he's not programming, he's riding his bike or critiquing movies.

Pizza/Geek Dinner

Pizza will be provided as a snack during the meeting. A Geek Dinner will be held immediately after the meeting at The Pub at 1554 Polaris Parkway,
Columbus, Ohio 43240


Thursday, 6/25/2015, 6:00 – 8:00pm
