.NET Meetup | Wednesday 27th March | 6-7:30 pm | iHub

Every month, the iHub is going to host the Kenya .NET User Group where developers meet to exchange ideas and listen to presentations by local and international industry experts.

Why - 3 Great reasons to Attend the .NET User Group 1. Learn
2. Build contacts
3. Socialize

Cost Free to attend

What people are saying "Developers are already good at writing code. Writing reams of code just digs you deeper into an already deeply specialized skill. What I am proposing is that we spend less time coding and more time developing skills in other areas that complement our coding skills. Become a better writer. Become a better speaker. Improve your personal skills. Participate in the community. Try to spend some time talking to people instead of the compiler. That's how you distinguish yourself from your peers. And that's ultimately how you become a better software developer, too."

- Jeff Atwood

Each month the User Group will be full of highly technical early adopters of technology and our attendees shall always open to seeing presentations on the latest technologies.We welcome companies and guest presenters to present new topics and new
gadgets. We do encourage you to delve beyond the sales and marketing pitch and show us how it was built, not just why it was built.

Here's a quick list of some tips for presenters:
Presentation needs to be directed at a highly technical audience (No sales pitch)
Introduce new technology
Samples and giveaway prizes for attendees are great
Prior to the meeting do a rehearsal
If you think you're up for the challenge and have something new to show us please contact me on v-stebic@microsoft.com
