.NET Developers Association - Westside Message Board › Leadership Change / Searching for Venue

Leadership Change / Searching for Venue

Chris K.
Group Organizer
Seattle, WA

My name is Chris Kinsman. I was recently invited to take over this group as an organizer.  I was a co-organizer in the past with Marcelo Calbucci.  I have been organizing the eastside .NET Developer Association group for ~4 years now and am the organizer of the Seattle CodeCamp.

Restarting Group

I debated taking over as organizer of this group.  The only reason I decided to do it is I have seen requests from folks over the year to do something like the .NET Developers Association on the west side of the lake.  I work over in Fremont but live in Redmond so I can certainly understand the request/need.

I am already doing quite a bit of work to recruit speakers, sponsors, etc on the east side and feel I could leverage this to the west side.  My thought was to ask speakers to do the west side group on a different night of the week, week of the month or month.  Some may decline but I suspect that many would be open to doing the same content in a different location.

The biggest blocker to making this happen is finding a venue that is:

  • Free
  • Available on the same day of the month every month for a year
  • Easily accessible.  Ideally not behind a secured door, require escorts, etc.  If it is behind a secured door I will need a sponsor to escort attendees or provide someone to do so.

I put together a little survey to collect venue suggestions and what night of the week would be best for folks.  Please take a moment to give me some feedback by filling it out.

Seattle CodeCamp

I also want to tell you about a free opportunity coming up next month.  Seattle CodeCamp is September 10th at Seattle University.  It is an all day event with over 50 sessions on a variety of technologies.  Please head to­ to register and pass the word along to your friends.  We had over 450 folks attend last year and are looking for it to be even bigger and better this year!
