We're starting a .NET user group in south-central Minnesota
We are starting a .NET user group in Mankato, which is in south-central Minnesota. Hopefully we can attract developers in the area that (like me) sometimes find it hard to make the 1-1/2 hour drive to the nearest .NET user group in Minneapolis. They're doing a great job up there in the Twin Cities, and I'll still try to make it to some of their meetings, but I just have a feeling there is a community of developers here that don't get much of a chance to hang out with geeks and talk shop.
So we have set up a web site, and set the date and time for our kickoff meeting.
Mankato .NET User Group Kickoff Meeting
When: Tuesday, June 10, 7:00 - 9:00
Where: Bethany College, 700 Luther Dr, Mankato, Minnesota We'll be meeting in Meyer Hall room 130. If you park in the Meyer Hall lot, room 130 is the first door on the right when entering from the lower level entrance. Map can be found here, http://www.blc.edu/facilities/map/.
- Discuss regular meeting times & format
- Discuss how to spread the word
- Brainstorm topics and presenters
- Presentation on new features in Visual Studio 2008 that make it a compelling upgrade
