NxtGenUG are holding their annual “Fest” in sunny Bournemouth this year. On July 16th as it happens. From 9-6.
[I once had a hotel room in Bournemouth with its own sauna but that’s not important right now. It wasn’t a flashy room. I was in the civil service at the time. We didn’t do flashy (unlike nowadays I suspect). It just had a sauna in it for some reason.]
Here’s the current agenda to give you a flavor of the day – I notice even ex-evangelist Marcus Perryman has resurfaced for the event. I wonder how they even managed to make contact with him?
09:30 - 09:45 Richard Costall, John Price, John McLoughlin, Richie Allen Welcome and Keynote
09:45 - 10:45 Glenn Block MEF
10:55 - 11:55 Marcus Perryman Developing for Windows Phone 7
12:00 - 13:00 Jon Skeet Abusing C# for fun (but probably not profit)
13:40 - 14:40 Chris Hay The Cloud, featuring Windows Azure
14:50 - 15:50 Ryan Simpson F#, in the tone of C#
16:00 - 17:00 Mike Taulty OData - What, When, Why and How?
17:00 - 18:00 Glenn Block REST, It's more than data...
