August 2010 ALT.NET Seattle & Inaugural Android Meet Up

ALT.NET Seattle Meet

This weekend I attended the ALT.NET meet up.  For more information on future meet ups check out these resources:

We covered some great topics around not using IoC (Justin, where were ya!?), REST and what it really is, and lots of things around WCF.  We all adjourned briefly for some burgers at Blue Moon and went right back at it.  If you’re serious about architecture, frameworks, and coding in general (in general in the .NET stack) you should definitely check out this group.  Anyone can come and jump in, easy to participate and everybody is great about helping each other out.

Inaugural Android Mobile Meet Up

This group was great also.  I forget how many exactly, but in excess of 40 people were there, possibly even 60 or so.  The session were great and the organizer did a top notch job of getting the pizza in, introducing the speakers, and getting some appropriate props for F5 Networks for hosting!  Thanks Benn for a job well done.  For more information or to attend the next meet up check out http://www.meetup.com/Seattle-Android-Developers/
