Hans Zaunere from the NY PHP users group called me last week and let me know about the NY Technical Community Holiday party taking place on December 13th. The NY Technical Community is a new loosely affiliated technology-agnostic community that is coming together from various user groups in the NY metro area. The goal is to be a community for professional social networking that crosses technology boundaries. In the long term, they are looking at building a portal that can list all area user groups, and maybe have a calendar.
So come on out to the NY Technical Community Holiday Party being held on Thursday, December 13th in Manhattan. It's is a free party with food, drink and chance to network with architects and developers that are members of other user groups and all sorts of technology folks from the New York area. The party is being sponsored by multiple user groups in the NY area, as well as several companies, including Microsoft, Sun, Wiley, O'Reilly, NYI, and others.
I really would like to make it to this, but I'll be attending the Visual Studio 2008 Installfest at the Central Jersey .NET user group that evening. Bill Zack from Microsoft and the NYC .NET user group will be there, so be sure to come on out for what sounds like a great evening!
Here are the details:
Business casual attire is required.
