On May 13th Joe Mayo will once again present “What’s New in Visual Studio 2015.” In this live session, you will get a great overview of the changes from the previous versions of Visual Studio. You will also learn about some of the updates that were released at Build, including the newest version called Visual Studio Code. Code is a free version of Visual Studio 2015 that is really a very powerful editor that runs on multiple platforms. You’ll also learn of any new updates that may come from Microsoft before the 13th.

On May 27th Mike Benkovich will continue the Visual Studio conversation when he presents “Building Apps for Windows 10 using Visual Studio.” Windows 10 is expected to bring the best of Windows 7 and Windows 8 plus some new advancements. Mike will cover this exciting update, including related information recently released at Build.

Introduction to Swift  | Watch recording
In this webinar recorded earlier this month, Jordan Hudgens covers Swift, the newest programming language from Apple. Swift is designed for Cocoa and Cocoa Touch, and is meant to be easier, faster, and safer than Objective-C.  You can use Swift to replace or work in conjunction with Objective-C. Watch the replay now:

This webinar coincides with the release of two new Swift courses from LearnNowOnline: Swift for iOS: Basics and Swift for iOS: Creating an Application. These two courses will give you an overview of Swift and its basic commands, plus you will learn how to create a simple application.

Avoiding hacker tricks

hacker-image-300x237

So in a perfect world, your computers, servers, and web pages could not be hacked. In a perfect world, users would not be allowed access to data or your servers. In a perfect world, computers would be stand-alone machines. In a perfect world, I would have a flying car and sharks with laser beams in a moat around my castle. We all know there is no such thing as a perfect world…and the flying car has little over a year to appear, at least according to the “Back to the Future” movies.

Because we don’t live in a perfect world, we need to have computer security. Computer security is said to be a reactionary endeavor. The IT security people are always reacting to a new threat. With that being said, there are ways to be proactive. In our most recent live webinar, expert Mike Benkovich covered ways that you can prevent some of the most common attacks.

Mike explored a secure development approach and showed some of the top exploits that you need to know about. He demonstrated how you can use .NET features to stop exploits before they happen, and he showed injection attacks, cross-site scripting, and security misconfiguration. We looked at the hacker’s psyche and showed how they think and work, and learned what we can do to build more secure software. With all the stories of data breaches in the last year or so, it is even more important to be sure you are on top of security from initial development of any project.

In a perfect world, you would have been able to attend this webinar. In perfect world, there would be a recording of this webinar available to you. Well, the world is not perfect, but in this case we do have the replay of the webinar for your viewing pleasure. The world may be perfect once flying cars appear.
