February is the month of love and we just know you’re going to love our February speaker. Julie Lerman is a Microsoft MVP and one of the foremost experts on Entity Framework and she’ll be presenting live at dotNet Miami! She’ll be giving us seven reasons why we should move to the new Entity Framework 7 (now EF Core) and six reasons why we should stay with Entity Framework 6. This is going to be one amazing night that you don’t want to miss!


We’ll be meeting at the Microsoft Innovation Center at Venture Hive. The Microsoft Innovation Center in Miami (MIC Miami) is a state-of-the-art technology facility open to students, software developers, academic faculty, entrepreneurs, and startups for collaboration and skills development. Microsoft Innovation Center at Venture Hive is located at 1010 NE 2nd Ave Miami, FL 33132. There’s limited parking in front of Venture Hive. If that lot is full there’s an empty lot directly behind the Venture Hive building.

And as always we’ll have prizes at the end of the meeting. In addition the O’Reilly e-books and Pluralsight memberships we’ll be giving away a free copy of Resharper from JetBrains!
