NxtGenUG Cambridge

NxtGenUG have just announced they’re adding a new region to their already extensive collection (Birmingham, Oxford and Coventry) – Cambridge this time. The new regional group will be run by Chris Hay and Allister Frost and they’ve managed to secure a fantastic venue for it at Microsoft Research.

The ‘Launch’ meeting will be held on Tuesday 18th September 2007 and will feature … Me! (yes, that’s me as in me) … talking Silverlight (Microsoft’s new Rich Web Application Development Platform).  There’ll also be a speaker from Microsoft Research covering the fascinating subject of F#, watch out for more details!

Rich, Dave and John will be there to do something or other, probably involving ‘swag’.  All are welcome to attend the meeting whether they are a NxtGenUG member or not.  Just go to the NxtGenUG site at http://www.nxtgenug.net, register for FREE and book your place! The evening starts at 6.30pm and ends at 9.00pm.

  1. Well, if you are at MSR in Cambridge and F# is involved then the mystery man is going to be Don Syme.

    Do I win a prize?

    Such as shame because I was just about to offer an all expenses paid trip to Southend-on-Seabut you got in there a moment too early. And of course, it being a secret, I don’t know if that’s the right answer… 🙂

  3. A big thank you to everyone at the NxtGenUG meeting last night for making it such an enjoyable experience
