A new .NET User Group is starting up in Canary Wharf - CWDNUG. It plans to focus on technology for financial services such as: WPF & Silverlight. F# & other alternative languages. High volume systems & complex event processing. Agile tools, methodologies and experiences. Open source systems that you can use (or that need your help!). Upcoming releases from Microsoft (WP7, VS2010, TPL).
The first meeting is on June 2nd and Marlon (WPF MVP) will be speaking about MEF. Register today as there are only 15 spots left :-) (as of Thursday 20th May)
