These are the currently scheduled Belgian user group events:

VISUG - Security Development Lifecycle
Wednesday 25 October 2006
The software industry has been struggling with how to create and release software that is more security-enhanced and reliable. The Security Development Lifecycle (SDL) provides a methodology that works; it is a critical way to help reduce the number of security defects in code at every stage of the development process, from design to release. When compared to software that has not been subject to the SDL, software that has undergone the SDL has experienced a significantly reduced rate of external discovery of security vulnerabilities.

During this presentation Wim Verhaeghen, content master for MSDN Belux, will introduce you in the process of developing software that needs to withstand malicious attack.

ACCB.NET User Group Brugge - Strict On Programming
Wednesday 18 October 2006

SQL Server User Group Belgium - SQL Server Integration Services
Thursday 23 November 2006
Nico Verheire, BI-consultant at Dolmen, will talk about Integration Services for about 1 to 1,5 hours. After the break, you are free to share and show your experiences / troubles on some desktops available in the room. Of course, you can also bring a portable with your "case". It is not a consulting evening, so no guarantee about the outcome, but the ideal place to share ideas and experiences with others.

All events can be attended free of charge. The .NET User Group Brugge requires membership of the user group.
