This weekend I attended the ALT.NET meet up. For more information on future meet ups check out these resources:
We covered some great topics around not using IoC (Justin, where were ya!?), REST and what it really is, and lots of things around WCF. We all adjourned briefly for some burgers at Blue Moon and went right back at it. If you’re serious about architecture, frameworks, and coding in general (in general in the .NET stack) you should definitely check out this group. Anyone can come and jump in, easy to participate and everybody is great about helping each other out.
This group was great also. I forget how many exactly, but in excess of 40 people were there, possibly even 60 or so. The session were great and the organizer did a top notch job of getting the pizza in, introducing the speakers, and getting some appropriate props for F5 Networks for hosting! Thanks Benn for a job well done. For more information or to attend the next meet up check out http://www.meetup.com/Seattle-Android-Developers/
This week there are also a number of meet ups that I hope to attend;
- SAWSUG – Seattle Area AWS Users Group. This group covers all sorts of cloud topics, primarily around AWS Technologies.
- Agile Beer @ http://www.elysianbrewing.com/ @ 1221 E Pike St, Seattle, WA 98122.
- Hadoop User Group – The Hadoopers get some topics, toss em’ around, and come up with some wicked cool solutions, sometimes.
