Postponement: Andreas Håkansson and Steven Robbins on Nancy on 22 November 2011

Due to the busy schedules of both presenters and the nasty cold that got a hold of Steve, I regret to inform that the previously announced talk on Nancy is postponed until a later date. Our sincere apologies for the short notice. We’ll be announcing a new date very soon.

Andreas Håkansson and Steven Robbins on Nancy on 22 November 2011

We’re very happy to announce that Andreas Håkansson (aka The Code Junkie) and Steven Robbins (aka GrumpyDev)agreed to do a talk on Nancy, a lightweight, low-ceremony, framework for building HTTP based services on .Net and Mono. The goal of the framework is to stay out of the way as much as possible and provide a super-duper-happy-path to all interactions. With Nancy you can go from zero to website in a matter of minutes.

Andreas is a software developer working from Sweden. He’s a strong believer of open-source software, software craftsmanship and contributing to the overall quality and knowledge of the community. Besides working on the Nancy web framework as the main contributor, he also runs the MEF Contrib, a set of community contributed extensions, tools and samples for the Managed Extensibility Framework.

Steven is a Technical Architect at Lightbox Education in the UK, mainly working on educational software and line of business applications for education related government departments and commercial companies. He’s also the coordinator of the Manchester NxtGenUG .Net User Group and a well know open-source developer on projects like Nancy, TinyIoC, Simple.Data, etc. … .
