Speaking on the 15th Feb at the NE Bytes user group on “TFS for Everyone”

I will be speaking at the NE Bytes user group next Wednesday (the 15th of Feb) on ‘TFS for Everyone’.

This a session based on the guest blog post on the UK Visual Studio blog  I did on how TFS is not just for .NET developers. It can be used from a whole range of development platforms and operating systems. I will be including demos using Eclipse and Ubuntu.

Hope to see you there.

I am speaking at NEBytes in November on Mocking with Typemock Isolator

On the 17th of November I will be speaking in Newcastle at the NEBytes user group on the subject ‘Using Typemock Isolator to enable testing of both well designed code and nasty legacy systems’.

NEBytes meetings have an interesting format of a developer and an IT Pro talk at each meeting. The IT Pro session in November is to be given by another member of Black Marble staff, Rik Hepworth, and is on Sharepoint I think.

Hope to see you there.

A new user group – North East Bytes

There is a new user group starting up in the North East. It is taking an interestingly route of having meetings with two one hour sessions, one targeted at developers and the other for IT pros. The user group is free and there will be food and giveaways,

I like this idea, the danger with too many user groups is that they focus too much on their own little area; getting in some cross fertilisation between people with different views on problems is a great way to learn more.

NE Byres launch event is on the 20th of January in Room G11 of the Percy Building at Newcastle University. It will have sessions on Silverlight and SharePoint 2010.
