What we're about

The Kansas City .NET User Group (KCDNUG) is for developers working in and around the Microsoft .NET framework that are interested in learning more about .NET and related technologies from other talented like minded developers.

Our regular monthly meetings feature speakers from Kansas City and the surrounding region who provide their insights on .NET and other relevant software developer topics. The meetings are typically on the 4th Tuesday of each month at 6 PM. Our current meeting space is generously provided by VinSolutions and we have great sponsors each month that provide food and drinks.

Speak up and be heard!

Want to look awesome and support our community? We are always looking for sponsors to provide the food and drinks at our monthly meetings.
