Steve Clements .Net and then some....

If you are based in the southwest of England you are probably aware that there isnt a dot net user group and if you want to see any presentations you have to either be lucky enough and well planned to get in when MS come to Bristol but most likely theres the drive up the M4 to Reading.  (I guess you could brave public transport and risk being late, getting lost or perhaps just not getting anywhere - bollox to that!!)

I did post sometime ago enquiring how one would go about starting a user group - not really having or wanting to dedicate all my spare time to it nothing ever came about!  Luckily for us all some people have!!

Check it out here - http://www.dotnetdevnet.com

There are three meetings planned and they are held in the Filton part of Bristol in the BAWA building - directions can be found here

First meeting which is actually in couple of days! It's Mike Taulty (the blog maniac DE in the UK) talking about LINQ - here

May 21st: Enterprise Library And The Policy Injection Application Block with Alex Homer

June 18th: Windows Communication Foundation and Windows CardSpace with Martin Parry

I wont actually be at the first one as I am going to the MSDN roadshow in Reading(!) next Wednesday which includes loads of info on LINQ and more.  Anyone else going??

However I will be at the second one in May and really looking forward to it, I have recently started working with the Enterprise Library so the timing is perfect especially with the a new release of the Library being recently released.

Look forward to seeing you there! :)

Steve,

Many thanks for the mention. The meeting last night went really well. Good attendance (36) and people seemed interested in the subject and the group itself so after one meeting things are looking ok. See you at meeting #2.

Guy
