The Next Generation User Group


John Price, Dave McMahon and Richard Costall would like to announce the formation of a new User Group called The Next Generation User Group (known as NxtGenUG). The purpose of the User Group is to help its members discover and get excited about all the latest and new technologies coming out of Microsoft such as .NET 2.0, SQL Server 2005, WPF, WCF, WF, LINQ, Office 12 and .NET 3.0.

It doesn’t matter what development language is your language of choice, and we will also be covering techniques and technologies currently out there which people are using now. Our first meeting is on 8th May at the Coventry Flying Club. It’s going to be informative and fun, with great speakers from the community and Microsoft and competitions and prizes every month!

So make a note of the URL: Register with the site and come and join the fun. Membership rates are extremely competitive, and anyone who attended the VBUG launch extravaganza last November will know what to expect.

Check out some of the early content – including a rare interview with Soma Somasegar – Vice President of the developer division at Microsoft in Redmond and an excellent interview with Marcus Perryman – Mr Mobile Devices.

We are really excited about this and i hope you are to… its only version 1.0 of the site and we have SO MUCH MORE TO COME!

Fasten your seatbelts – NxtGenUG is clear for take-off!
