For December's meeting of the Perth .NET User Group (Thursday, 2nd December), we are running another DevJam community event, where anyone can give a short talk about anything .NET software development related.
You can talk about any development topic but it must be between 5 – 10 minutes long:
How do I enter? You must register by sending an email to mitch.wheat at gmail.com, no later than 20th Nov, with the word 'DevJam’ in the subject, stating your talk title in the body. Let me know whether you will be bringing your own laptop (preferable). Presenter places are limited, so it's first come, first served.
There are prizes for the three highest, audience voted talks (with the organisers’ decision as final in case of a tie break). The first prize is a copy of Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate with MSDN subscription, worth approximately $12,000! There will several other prizes which will be announced shortly.
