Founded in February 2009 as NxtGenUG Hereford, we changed our name in July 2013 to SmartDevs. We used to charge a fee when we were NxtGenUG to cover the cost of room hire, pizza and drinks but now we’ve gone free so come along, meet some friendly geeks, get fed and hopefully learn something for free.

We normally meet on the 2nd Monday of each month in Hereford between 7 and 9pm for a presentation, pizza and fizzy drinks. Some of the group go to the pub afterwards to carry on the talk, all are welcome.

Please register first so we can get the pizza order right (and let us know if you have specific food requirements).

The group welcomes speakers from all over the UK and sometimes even a famous overseas visitor. Although a lot of the talks are based around Microsoft technology we’ll cover anything interesting to a tech audience, from .net, JavaScript through C# to swarming quad-copters controlled from a Raspberry Pi.

If you’d like to speak about a technology that you’ve found interesting but are not sure you have enough content for a whole session we’ll make room for ten minutes at the start.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
