Lightning Talks & Coding Dojo

Hi guys, this week we have one lightening talk planned (see abstract below) but room for many more! Lightning talks can be anywhere between 5 and 15 minutes. New to alt .net? A great way to get involved is through a lightning talks. Think about what you are working on right now... Could you talk about that for 5 or 10 minutes?

If you think even maybe you could do a lightning talk please contact me [masked]

For the Coding Dojo I will prepare a few kata's. I'm thinking this time we might go Corey Haines style and do the game of life with various limitations on which language features you are allowed to use. So bring your laptops if you have em, but don't worry if you don't we'll hook you up with a pair.
