Geekette's Blogette Trying to keep up with technology

Doug Turnure has recently provided a lot more content to .NET University.  .NET University is a site where user groups (or individuals) can download presentations, complete with spiffy slide decks and demos/labs. There are now over 40 downloads (both C# and VB.NET - Yay!)

RV.NUG used .NET U back when .NET 3.0 was first released.  We found the slides and demos were both excellent.  (You can even see us on the alumnus page on .NET U!)

This resource provides many opportunities to user groups.  Here's my quick list

  1. Provides content for a meeting presentation - seasoned speaker can prep and deliver quickly
  2. Provides content for a meeting presentation - NEW SPEAKER - great time to help mentor/coach an rising star in your UG
  3. Hands on workshops - Work with a local community college and prep a lab so attendees can all do the labs (This is what RV.NUG did - Big Thanks to Virginia Western Community College for the labs and lab setup)
  4. Lunch and learn  event - Change the time of day you are presenting content to expose others to the UG

BIG THANKS to Doug (and his team)!  This is a valuable resource.
