imageOn the heels of the launch of the New England Mobile .NET group, there’s another Boston-area developer group – Beantown ALT.NET!  The group is organized by John Zablocki and starts in September.

First of all, what’s “ALT.NET”?  The concept has been around quite a while, and there are groups in many other cities.  In fact, click through to NY ALT.NET or DC ALT.NET for a good description.  John also has a post describing “Why Beantown ALT.NET?

First meeting’s details:

    Beantown ALT.NET
    September 28th, 6:30 PM
    Microsoft NERD
    1 Memorial Dr., Cambridge, MA
    Topic: “HTML5 Practices and Adoption”
    Speaker:  Well, me…

John kindly invited me to speak for this meeting.  We’ll go beyond the “What is HTML5?” introduction to focus on practical strategies, tools, libraries, etc. for adopting HTML5 technologies today, while accommodating browsers that don’t natively support those features.

On October 26th, John will be covering “.NET and NoSQL: Relaxing with CouchDB”. 

I hope to see you there!
