This programming group meets to work in .NET, on the spot, in real time, on our laptops. Of course we can be social too while collaborating on ideas and work. The intention of this group is to promote an environment where .NET work gets done during the session, where ideas are fostered, where experiences rub off and where we can show off our .NET work.
This document describes what to expect from a session: http://bit.ly/10cr3Fh
Currently we meet once a month in the fourth week. Join us to access the calendar.
General Meeting evening format is:
What to bring
Bring a laptop or device to code on. Bring projects, work and ideas.
Choose to work on your own projects or to help somebody else with theirs if you like a different idea. We will self-assemble, work on .NET endeavours and talk about what we're each doing on a voluntary basis. No pressure.
Who is this for?
This group is for any .NET developer no matter experience level: from the most experienced people to students, even for people wanting to try .NET for the first time in a supportive and like-minded environment. What you work on is totally up to you.
What flavour of .NET development?
Any kind of .NET development is welcome from Microsoft to Mono; micro, mobile, desktop, web services, code libraries, plug-ins, etc. Anything based around .NET is good.
There's no restriction on what .NET language, framework version or platform you can use. You might be into a mainstream .NET syntax like C# or VB.NET, into functional F#, or into something more obscure and powerful like Nemerle, or you might code in pure CIL. It's really up to you.

We are on:
Why the name "Hackers"?
The word "Hackers" purposefully conveys "action" and "doing". Many .NET User Groups already exist. What distinguishes us is a focus on hands-on coding and learning through implementation.
