Today we’d like to introduce you to DareDevs User Group. It will, over the coming months, take over from NxtGenUG Manchester. We are very excited about the change and the future.
What Will the New Group Be Like?
We will continue to meet every month on the 3rd Wednesday and each session will have a fantastic speaker, pizza, a chance to chat with other like minded people and all meetings and sessions will be free to attend. We will still have an “open mic” slot at the start of each group for a member to present on what something they’ve learned about or are passionate about.
All events will have registration pages on EventBrite and will be announced here, we would really appreciate it if you could register so we have enough pizza!
In terms of topics we already cover a large number of topics including .NET, open source technologies, methodologies and much more. We intend to keep this going and get this started we have the following sessions coming up soon:
May: Cross Platform Game and App Development
June: TDD, where did it all gone wrong?
August: TypeScript: The Good Parts
If you’re a speaker or know of a speaker that would like to talk for us, let us know via Twitter (@DareDevsUK)
Why the Change?
NxtGen has been fantastically supportive and gave us massive amounts of help at the start, without them we would not be the group we are today. However, times change and as a group we have diversified on topics (and continue to do so) and would like to move away from the subscription model we have used for several years.
We wish them luck and hope to keep close ties as we move forward.
Why No Logo?
Simply put, we don’t have one. If you’d like to design us want, then shout out :)
We hope to see you there!
