January BUG Meeting

11. January 2006 17:09

Last night, the Birmingham .NET User Group had their January meeting at EBSCO.  Despite the location being somewhat out of the way for some people, we still had a good showing of approximately 40 people.  Considering that the user group is still very new, I think the attendance is progressing well.   I would like to throw out a special thanks to ComFrame for providing pizza and drinks as well as EBSCO for providing a location for the meeting.

The speaker for the evening was my co-worker, Todd Miranda.  He delivered a well-rounded presentation regarding AJAX by covering the essentials of the technology with an emphasis on degradation.  I believe the code examples will be available on his blog within the next day or two.  You can locate it at: http://blog.nxtdimension.com

It is encouraging to see the involvement of the local .NET community beginning to grow.  I look forward to seeing where things go with the user group.  Be sure to tell your co-workers and other geek buddies about it.  And, be sure to register on the user group website to receive emails about upcoming events: http://www.bugdotnet.com.
