Experiences and Experiments in Programming

 Wednesday, June 10, 2009

Last night, and long overdue, we re-launched the Birmingham .NET User Group.  The meeting went well except for a few technical glitches with the projector at the hosting location.  A note to the tech folks there: the projector cable must be plugged into the input of the projector!  :)

Jeff Barnes showed the group how to "code like a ninja" with various Visual Studio 2008 tips and a demonstration of many features of jetBrains' ReSharper.  The night ended with some great swag.  We gave away 2 copies of ReSharper (thanks jetBrains), 1 copy of Nevron Chart components (thanks Nevron), a few books, a webcam, a geek mug, and more.

Thanks to NxtDimension Solutions for sponsoring the meeting and supplying the pizza and drinks.

Why re-launch?  When this group was started, we didn't want to delay getting the group going.  So we launched the user group without a lot of the pieces of the puzzle in place.  The first thing we wanted to do was to then catch up and put more structure in place.  As with most things, we never did get caught up.  The group has been great, done great things, and hosted many great speakers and events, but it was time for a new life.  I am looking forward to what the future of the group holds!  Hopefully many of you can join us for the journey.

The Birmingham .NET User Group meets the second Tuesday of each month.  The meeting starts at 6:30 PM and usually goes till 8 PM. More information can be found at the website: www.bugdotnet.com.

I had a great time at the meeting last night. This is definitely a meeting that I look forward to each month, especially now that there might be food sponsors!

Keep up the good work!
