leave a comment »

Update: I made contact with the speaker I’d lined up (my fault not his, I’d lost his e-mail during my conversion to Windows 7) and this will be a two for one meeting. We’ll do the BootCamp book selection as quickly as possible then move onto the main presentation. – Robert

The next meeting of the Birmingham Software Developers Association will take place on Thursday, February 12th at 6:30 pm. We will meet at our usual place, the New Horizons Training Center in Homewood.

This meeting will start with a planning session for Boot Camp. At a Boot Camp, we select a book to study. Volunteers than select one or more chapters to study, and at the Boot Camp do a presentation on the chapter they selected. Presentations typically run 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the length and complexity of the material. Our Boot Camps tend to be very loose and informal, they take place over a weekend (two weekends if there is a lot of material) and don’t have a rigid schedule.

At this meeting the club will review book choices, and settle on a final book. We will do a bulk order for books, and distribute at the March meeting. At that time we’ll divide up the chapters and prepare for a Boot Camp in April or May. If you have a book you think would be a good candidate, please bring it with you to the February meeting.

After the boot camp planning (hopefully no more than 20 minutes) we’ll move into the main presentation. Evan Koch will be demonstrating the Microsoft Business Rules Engine and how it can be used to encapsulate logic and the ease with which the rules can be updated as rules change.  Evan is a Senior Consultant with CTS, where he has been for the last seven years, focusing primarily on SQL Server and BizTalk.
