    Nadim S. on Jun 26, 2012.

  • VanDev: Vancouver's Software Developers Network

     A presentation on programming language metaphors (and perhaps the patterns they support - though some of the functional people dislike patterns) would be nice. There is an apparent conflict between the UML-style tight type checking and the agile-style ducktype approaches which would have been interesting to air.

    Sreedhar V. on Jul 22, 2009.

  • VanDev: Vancouver's Software Developers Network

     Developers are typically busy, socially shy, and tired. This meetup group goes beyond a technical presentation to helping developers find what they want. Desired information last night included: job finding in Vancouver, a good lawyer, a good accounted, Java ORB tutoring, creating a causal game, skiing, backup approaches, Freebase. There is a mix of contractors/freelance (incorporated and not), and salaried employees. CTOs of startups (current and ex). 

    Jason H. on Jul 17, 2009.

  • VanDev: Vancouver's Software Developers Network

     Give us more networks and information exchange in this fast growing industry. The guests/group also willing to share their knowledge and information are the awesome part. 

    Bonnie W. on May 8, 2009.

  • VanDev: Vancouver's Software Developers Network

     There are a lot of industry professionals here from all over the software field. Some are willing to volunteer for work in areas they are interested in, others are open for contract or job offers, and there are one or two looking for the right professional to meet their company needs. The meeting topics vary widely in subject so there may be one that you are interested in learning about or sharing about. 

    Phil on May 7, 2009.

  • VanDev: Vancouver's Software Developers Network

     You never know who you will meet, and generally spoken very friendly people here that are willing to help you or discuss anything.

  • VanDev: Vancouver's Software Developers Network

     Diverse interests, friendly, keen people. I've only been to one meeting, but if this presentation is indicative of the others, it's informative in a general sense (i.e. not a tutorial).

    Jason L. on Aug 13, 2007.

  • VanDev: Vancouver's Software Developers Network

     ...still tough to authoritatively rate a 'typical session'...again, not sure that this is a 'typical session'...more biased towards technical people, which is a nice balance against other groups I network with. This was my first 'real' session - great to see the turnout! good interaction, and broad range of participants tonight... 

    Jim B. on Mar 6, 2007.

  • VanDev: Vancouver's Software Developers Network

  • VanDev: Vancouver's Software Developers Network

     The presenter for the topic of the meeting was a good speaker. He could have explained it a bit more from a broader perspective and slowly narrowing it down which he did to a degree. 

    Brian on Dec 6, 2006.

  • VanDev: Vancouver's Software Developers Network

     A good number of people and a variety of interests are represented.

    Allison G. on Mar 7, 2006.
