Just a friendly reminder to those wondering what happened to our blog.
We officially moved over to meetup.com in July, you can now access the group, get updates on upcoming meetings and find speaker material:
Our June meeting is tonight starting at 6 pm and our Guest Speaker, Greg Major, will be giving his talk on Practical Domain Driven Design in C#.
I have a handful of O’Reilly books to give out on DDD and C# Mobile development.
Pizza and drinks as always.
btw, I didn’t want there to be any confusion, joining meetup.com is free, there is no fee to use any of their services, only the creators and hosts of meetup groups have to pay a monthly fee. Nothing else will change, we are just transitioning to their site and model for organizing the group meetings.
thanks, be sure you sign up so you can start getting meeting details and group emails, .net job postings, etc as we will no longer use this blog.
Yes, I am migrating us to meetup.com.
It was bound to happen sooner or later because well, meetup.com is awesome and has a much larger outreach than our blog can ever have.
What I would like everyone who is subscribed to this blog to do is head over to meetup.com, create an account if you haven’t and join our new meetup,
We’ll talk more about meetup.com and why I decided on this change, also you’ll learn that this is not free, I’m paying by the month out of what little funds we have left from our funding every month to host our meetup site. If, and only if meetup helps us attract more .NET devs (how many times every year do they come up to me and say “wow there’s a C# UG? Never knew) then it will be worth it. I also believe at some point we will need sponsorship at least a few meetings a year to cover the costs on my end for the security, food and meetup.com monthly fee.
Thanks, and I look forward to learning and using Meetup.com for organizing our group and meetings. I will post up our next meeting for Wed. the 20th soon, but I would like everyone to register first (it’s free to register and join groups btw).
This will most likely be the last blog post on wordpress and after you joining meetup.com you will get the same email notification for every post and meeting agenda that is added.
We are meeting next Wednesday at 6pm and have a guest speaker, Greg Major who will be giving a talk on Domain Driven Design in .NET, here is the synopsis:
For those interested, there is the annual Code Camp happening in Austin on June 9th.
If you were at the meeting on Wed. night, we’d ask that you rate Chris’ talk, to give him feedback.
You can also view/download his slides.
