Upcoming Local Events

7. September 2006 04:40

There are a few upcoming events in the Birmingham area that I wanted to pass along to those that might be interested.

Alabama Code Camp #3
I have received word that the next code camp has been tentatively planned for Saturday, October 28th.  This time the event will be held in Auburn University Campus in Montgomery, AL.  The details are still being discussed, but you should go ahead and mark it down on your calendar.  Stay tuned to the website at http://www.alabamacodecamp.com for additional information.  It hasn't been updated yet, but it should be in the near future.

Birmingham Tech Mixer
Another area tech mixer has been planned for Thursday, September 21.  If you aren't familiar with this or didn't make it to the first one, it is basically a large networking event for all of the various user groups within the area.  It is also an excellent opportunity to mingle with local developers.  It will be held at the McWane Science Center from 6PM to 8PM.  There is no charge for admission.  Free drinks and appetizers will be provided, but a cash bar will be available as well.  You can get more information and register here.

Birmingham .NET User Group September Meeting
The next meeting will be on Tuesday, September 12.  It will be held at the CTS office at 6:30 PM.  Ahmed Moiz, head of the Software Engineering and Quality Assurance departments for Marketron, will be presenting "Software Architecture and Design: A Programmer's Approach".  For more information, check out the user group website at http://www.bugdotnet.com.


I have been rather distracted over the last few weeks between final preparations for the imminent newborn as well as various issues for a client.  There are a couple of pet project ideas that I have been tossing around in my head.  Hopefully, I will be able to flesh those out a bit within the next week or two.  Once I have it more clearly defined, I will probably be blogging about them.  In case you are wondering...it will be tied into SOA and WCF.

About Me

I'm a passionate software developer and advocate of the Microsoft .NET platform.  In my opinion, software development is a craft that necessitates a conscious effort to continually improve your skills rather than falling into the trap of complacency.  I was also awarded as a Microsoft MVP in Connected Systems in 2008, 2009, and 2010.
