Over the weekend Rich and Dave announced the opening of a brand new NxtGenUG region - this time in Cambridge. So now developers can make their way over the fens and boards of East Anglia can gather together to learn, chat, eat Pizza and get prizes thrown at them in copious quantities.
The region will be run by Chris Hay and Allister Frost who live and work in the area. Chris and Allister have put in a great deal of effort to get the region off of the ground including securing a fantastic venue, courtesy of non-other than Microsoft Research Cambridge.
The 'Launch' meeting will be held at Microsoft Research on Tuesday 18th September 2007 and will feature Mike Ormond speaking on Silverlight Microsoft’s new Rich Web Application Development Platform. They’ll also have a speaker from Microsoft Research covering the fascinating new subject of F#, watch out for details! Finally Rich, Dave and John will be there to do something or other, probably emptying a van full of swag. Anybody is welcome to attend the meeting whether they are a NxtGenUG member or not. Just register for free on the NxtGenUG site and book your place! The evening starts at 06.30pm and ends at 09.00pm.
As with other NxtGenUG regions details of events at Cambridge will be available at http://www.nxtgenug.net/EventList.aspx and we know that Chris and Allister have a bunch of great sessions planned for Cambridge over the coming months.
Don’t forget the current competition to win a ticket to TechEd.
