Free to attend

 

What people are saying

Developers are already good at writing code. Writing reams of code just digs you deeper into an already deeply specialized skill. What I am proposing is that we spend less time coding and more time developing skills in other areas that complement our coding skills. Become a better writer. Become a better speaker. Improve your personal skills. Participate in the community. Try to spend some time talking to people instead of the compiler. That's how you distinguish yourself from your peers. And that's ultimately how you become a better software developer, too.  Jeff Atwood

 

Agenda

This is how we shall run it:

  1. Who are the first timers?
  2. News
  3. Session

 

 I would like to present

Each month the User Group will be full of highly technical early adopters of technology and our attendees shall always open to seeing presentations on the latest technologies.We welcome companies and guest presenters to present new topics and new
gadgets. We do encourage you to delve beyond the sales and marketing pitch and show us how it was built, not just why it was built. Here's a quick list of some tips for presenters:

  • Presentation needs to be directed at a highly technical audience (No sales pitch)
  • Introduce new technology
  • Samples and giveaway prizes for attendees are great
  • Prior to the meeting do a rehearsal

If you think you're up for the challenge and have something new to show us please contact me on v-stebic@microsoft.com
