Malisa Ncube - .NET Delights .NET Development ideas and things

We had a very interesting .NET meeting in which i gave a short presentation on the new features of .NET 4.0 and Visual Studio 2010. The main presentation came from Jake Markhus @jmarkhus who talked about NHibernate (



The membership for the group is growing each time we meet and its very encouraging. Some employers found candidates within our group for hiring, and this has resulted in a mutual benefit between the employers and job-seekers – really cool stuff.



Jake above giving us the soup and nuts of NHibernate.

We were very excited since a number companies decided to support us in many ways. Some members won the licenses for Telerik Suite ( while Intellisense LTD ( agreed to sponsor us on domain registration and hosting of the community site. Jake announced on the possibility of having DevExpress ( sponsor us on 2 licenses of CodeRush which would be won in the next meeting raffle.

I (@malisancube) would like to thank all the companies and individuals who have decided to sponsor us as a community of developers. We appreciate your support very much.

Malisa.. that's great news to see what's going on in Uganda. My brother is in your country for a few years and he only has good things to say.

From a fellow African (South African) - keep it up!
