This meeting is a meeting with a difference: it's all about our community. The majority of meetings we have are tech dumps of information from a knowledgeable expert to us and very valuable they are too. But every now and again it is useful and fun to have a meeting that is just about us and getting to know more about people in our part of the world and discussing development in general. This is what this meeting is all about. It is a smorgasbord of different activities including grok talks, micro-presentations, discussions and networking activities. The grok talks and micro-presentations will be provided by members of the group (that's you), the discussions will be led by and contributed to by members of the group (that's still you) and the networking activities are naturally all by members of the group. Certainly this is a different kind of meeting but it could well end up being one of the most valuable meetings you attend this year.
If you would like to give a grok talk (10 minute presentation on something directly or vaguely connected with .NET), a micro-presentation (20 slides of 20 seconds each) or suggest a topic for discussion in a breakout group then please send us an email.
