Some time ago I wrote that there is a wave of HCL events sweeping through Poland. Today I'm happy to announce that we opened registration for the Code Camp in Kraków. This is the first such conference organized by the members of KGD UG for the .NET developer community. We will meet on June 7th for the chance to listen to sessions from five great speakers: The world has changed… What are the dilemmas of designing software solutions in the year 2008? - Tadeusz Golonka Reach End-Users With Next Generation ......

Last Wednesday I had the privilege of representing the KGD.NET user group at the Heroes Happen Here launch event in Kraków. It's hard for me to say anything about the presentations because I actually didn't see even a single one (but others already blogged about it here and here). Instead I spent the whole day backstage chatting with my good friends: Asia Grzywna, Mateusz Kierepka, Pawel Potasinski, Bartosz Pampuch, Tadeusz Golonka, Grzegorz Kolarz, Pawel Lukasik, and Michal Brzozowski just to name ......

Yesterday I was pleasantly surprised by receiving email from David Silverlight that I had won 4th prize in Community Credit October 2008 Contest. The prize I won is the awesome Electronic Drum-Kit T-Shirt that you can hit with your finder to play drum sounds. I think it would totally rock combined with the Equalizer T-Shirt I got from my lovely wife some time ago. The Community Credit awards are presented for community related activities that you submit during a month. For each activity you receive ......

There are so many good things happening right now in the Polish .NET Community that I thogh it would be best to put it together in one post.

On April 5th 2008 eleven speakers will have opportunity to show the most wanted topics, and answer the most desired questions. The list of speakers looks very impressive and includes celebrities like Dino Esposito and Matin ......

Early this month I've read Scott Hanselman's invitation to Visual Studio 2008 InstallFest in Portland. If found the idea to get lots of people to install Visual Studio together quite interesting. I started looking around and quickly learned that this is a huge event for all .NET user groups in United States. However it turned out these meetings are not being held anywhere in Europe. What a bummer! But I liked the idea so much that I though we should organize this in our user group ourselves. We asked ......
