The best way to know what vnext is all about is to view this video (new blog, needs content): http://bit.ly/vnext-interview or on YouTube here: http://bit.ly/CrescentSolutionsVnextInterview. Although we've had numerous high-profile speakers, including ex-MSFT CTO's, CEO's and some of the best developers in their fields such as Laurent Bugnion of MVVM Light, Brian Lagunas and Craig Shoemaker of Infragistics, and many, many more, we were lucky enough to have Mr. Charles Petzold (Bill Gates named him "One of the Seven Pioneers of Windows Development") fly in from NY to speak to our group in Feb. 2013. You can see all past meetups if you scroll down the home page, but if you scroll past the above video of vNext_OC, you'll see the banner ad my company made for Mr. Petzold's event, here: http://vnextkimschmidt.wordpress.com/about/ .
And then you can read the below description :-)
vNext's Mission is to:
● Improve Developer Technology Development
● Unique Forum To Build Substainable Developer Communities
● Stimulate Dialogue On New & Emerging Technologies
The Vision of vNext is to provide a platform for local community focused design, ux, development, and innovation-inspired technical developer groups that promote the power of making ideas real, that improve the lives of others, while promoting new opportunities and emerging technologies in the communities that are both local and global.
We believe in creating a network that allows everyone to share, learn, and find inspiration with current and new emerging developer-related technologies; as well as provide a location for learning about these technologies.
In doing so, our vision is to create a repository of knowledge from these resources that that engages curiosity with new ideas and builds on current and emerging technologies. We do this with the further goal to network globally with the larger community and foster progress in these areas of interest.
This living community will digitally extends the local user group model and foster the ability for the vNext member to network globally with the larger developer, education, and innovation communities-at-large, in these areas of their particuliar interests and bring these to our local chapters . We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world - and making it an enlightened, inspired and better place for all - promoting a sustainable community model for innovation and thought leadership.
