I’ve been chatting to the guys that run the NxtGenUG .Net user group for a few months about the possibility of giving some “NxtGen love” to “us northerners”, and as of this morning Manchester is now officially the 7th region!
In the words of El Presidente Richard Costall:
“NxtGenUG is about bridging the gap between Microsoft and the developer. The waves of technology emerging from Microsoft is relentless, developers are under more pressure to deliver software and also understand these new technologies.”
We’ll be kicking off in May with a main speaker still to be confirmed, so if you’re in the area then please feel free to sign up, or spread the word to anyone you think might be interested. There will be an event running on the 3rd Wednesday of each month, diaries permitting, keep an eye on the main NxtGenUG page for more news.
Big thanks to Dave McMahon, Richard Costall and John Price for their invaluable help in getting this off the ground, and no, despite the date, this isn’t an April Fool! 🙂
