June 2008 Area User Group Meetings

June 2008 Area User Group Meetings

  • Comments 0

June is here.  Summer doesn’t officially start until the 21st, but we all know it really started Memorial Day weekend in spirit.  Our local community has been hopping with events and goings on the past month.  Both the Philly.NET code camp and TechBash 2008 in Nanticoke, Pa were great events.  Between those two events, some of the top experts in the northeast were featured as speakers.

The Windows Mobile Development tour made a stop in NYC with Dani Diaz and John Baird showing developers how to write applications that can run on the over 11 million Windows Mobile devices out there in the market today!  The NYC chapter of the International Association of Software Architects (IASA) hosted a two-day "IT Architects Regional Conference" in New York the week of May 22-23. 

This month promises another great line of up community driven events. Most of these are at our area’s user groups!  They’re a great opportunity for you network with your peers, eat free pizza, and… oh yeah…  Learn something!

Here's the line up at our area's user groups for June:

Note: Since many of the groups meet later in the month, they don't always have the agenda lined up by the 1st of the month.  I list these as "TBD" below.  I'll update this post during the month as I get updates.  However, for the most up to date information, click through the site links below to get the details direct from each group!
