This month is kind of a big deal (to me) here in the Twin Cities. We're launching not one, but TWO developer related groups.
The first one is my own project, the Twin Cities Developers Guild
) Our kickoff meeting is on Tuesday, July 8
at 6pm (with our Kickoff Cookout starting at 5pm) at New Horizons of Minnesota (in Edina) and features Jason Bock
(Magenic) speaking on "Writing Better Code."
Later in the week, on Thursday, July 10
at 5:30pm, the Twin Cities Languages User Group
) is having their first meeting too. This one is at Magenic (in Golden Valley) The featured speaker for this event is Charles Nutter
(Sun Microsystems) who will be speaking on JRuby.
If you're in the Twin Cities (or relatively close) you don't want to miss these events. If you are planning on attending either or both events, please take a moment and RSVP via the appropriate website. Thank you.
Also, later this month, there won't be a Twin Cities XNA User Group
) meeting because we're having a joint cookout with the local IGDA chapter. Details to follow.
Happy 4th of July to everyone
. Whether you celebrate Independence Day or not, there's still a 4th of July on most of your calendars, so I hope it's a good one. I plan to celebrate my freedom by having a few beers and making stuff explode. Good times.
