What we're about

The Enterprise Developers Guild is an independently run, volunteer user group that meets monthly to discuss and share information on a variety of Microsoft-centric technology topics. We offer an excellent way to receive a technical education and meet with peers to get more out of the latest Microsoft platforms, products, technologies, and resources.

The Guild meets the fourth Tuesday of every month, except December, at the Microsoft Office in Charlotte, North Carolina. Free guest parking is available in designated spots at the front of the buildings. Meetings are from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. Food and drinks are free courtesy of our meeting host.

January Meeting: Design for Enterprise Developers

Microsoft Charlotte Office

Join Signature Consultants and us on Tuesday, January 22nd, at 6:00 PM in the Redwood Conference Room of the Microsoft Charlotte Office. Any successful product begins with great design, and the field of design and user experience (UX) continue to get more attention. But how does this apply to enterprise development? If you have a designer or team of designers, how can you ensure you are working with them in the best way? What if your organization doesn’t have any designers? In this talk, we will discuss an overview of the design/UX landscape, tips for working design into your current build process, and finally some advice on how to build your design expertise. The meeting presenter is Niel Sutton. Niel Sutton is a User Experience (UX) Architect Manager in Microsoft Services. While in college, he was an intern at a startup where his naïve loyalty to Linux and penguins nearly got in the way of an exciting opportunity to work at Microsoft. Niel began his career answering support calls for MFC and C++. He never imagined that years later he would have a role leading UX Architects around the world and helping customers navigate digital transformation. The meeting sponsor is Signature Consultants. Signature Consultants started in 1997 with a singular focus: Provide our clients and consultants with superior staffing solutions. At Signature Consultants, it’s not just about the bottom line; it’s about the people. We focus on the relationships we have with our clients, consultants, and candidates. Our motto, “Getting IT Right,” is reflected in every aspect of our company – it guides our decisions and actions and ensures that our consultants and clients always come first. As a result of these efforts Signature has been recognized as one of the best staffing companies to work (over the last seven years by Staffing Analyst International). Learn more at www.sigconsult.com. The Guild meets on the fourth Tuesday of every month, except December, at 6:00 PM. RSVP so we know how much food to order.
