After a very long pause on physical meetups due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Mauritius Software Craftsmanship Community is back with its monthly physical meetups. This year's first meetup was themed around the .NET stack and was hosted by SD Worx in Ébène.
The meetup was scheduled at 10 a.m. I dropped Shelly and Vidush at the NEX Tower in Ébène and I headed to R. Hill for an appointment. I came back and joined the meetup as from 11 a.m. The meetup was held in the SD Worx office on the 11th floor of the NEX Tower.
The meetup theme was .NET and there were three speakers lined up:
After a very long time, I met Kishan Bhugul, who is currently back to Mauritius. I know Kishan since he university days and he was an active community member attending meetups and helping during events — especially during the Linux festivals we used to organise back then. We had a nice catch-up about work and the Ignite 2022 conference by Palo Alto Networks that he attended recently.
For the most part, I sat at the back and did some dev work while commenting about .NET with Renghen, Neil and Nythiennzo.
We had pizza for lunch, courtesy of SD Worx – very much appreciated, especially for the vegetarian option. 😊
Meetup ended at around 3 p.m with a lengthy discussion about .NET minimal API, the performance of .NET, scalability of applications, etc.
