Another Excellent User Group Meeting
We had another full Perth .NET user group presentation with speaker Nick Randolph last Thursday (Oct 4th) . Turnout was excellent, with 46 people (including a few latecomers), turning up to listen to Nick talk about the upcoming release of Visual Studio 2008. Here are a couple of photos:
Many thanks to Nick Randolph for delivering a great, demo packed session. Our next meeting is on Thursday, November 1st at the usual time of 5:30pm, with a session on WCF with Brian Madsen. I'll have a few t-shirts and assorted goodies from RedGate to give out.
Thanks again to Excom for providing our monthly meeting venue.
