I am pleased to say that Black Marble will be doing a session at the Leeds Sharp User group on the evening of the 30th of August on the Samsung SUR40 with Microsoft PixelSense (what used to be call a Surface2).
Should be an interesting session as we will be bringing one of our rental units along for everyone to have a go on.
The next Leeds Sharp user group meeting on the 28th of June is a Kata session using Conway’s game of life. For more details see their site.
Not sure if I can make it yet have to keep an eye on my ever filling diary
Session submission has opened for the next DDDNorth on the 13th October at Bradford University.
Why not submit a session?
This years DDD North is to be held at Bradford University on 13th October, keep an eye open for the call for speakers
Last night I attended the first meeting of the new .NET user group Leeds Sharp. This is a flavour of user group we don’t have in Leeds; we have SQL, Ruby, Agile user groups, the list goes on, but not a dedicated .NET one. So hopefully this .NET usergroup will take off. Especially as Microsoft conveniently decided to launch Windows 8 Release Preview and Visual Studio 11 RC during our opening session, so there are loads of new subjects to talk about.
A nice idea is the use of Uservoice to pick sessions, I would encourage anyone who thinks they might attend to get onto uservoice, see the sessions proposed, add your own suggestions and then vote.
Also if you are looking for an opportunity to speak at usergroups then why not suggest a session?
Well done to everyone trying to get this this group going. I hope to be able to attend, work allowing. Keep and eye on the user group web site, Twitter @LeedsSharp and discussion group
Thanks to everyone who attended my session at DDDSW today. The session was completely demo driven so no slides to share, but the contents of the session is covered in the blog posts
Please to say there is a new .NET usergroup leeds-sharp.org in Leeds, their inaugural meeting is on the 31st of May. I hope to be able to make it if I am in Yorkshire that day.
Got back from holiday today to find my DDDSW (26th May) session on unit testing in Visual Studio 11 has been accepted.
I see the event is already full, but hope to see some of you there
