What we're about


In view of the current situation with the coronavirus, we will be suspending our meetups until September.

We hope to see everyone fit and well in Autumn.


Founded in February 2009 as NxtGenUG, we changed our name in 2013 to SmartDevs and in 2019 we moved to Ludlow.

We meet on the 2nd Monday of each month in Ludlow between 7pm and 9pm for a presentation and pizza. All are welcome.

Please register first so we can get the pizza order right (and let us know if you have specific food requirements).

The group welcomes speakers from all over the UK and sometimes even a famous overseas visitor. Although a lot of the talks are based around Microsoft technology we’ll cover anything interesting to a tech audience, from .net, JavaScript through C# to swarming quad-copters controlled from a Raspberry Pi.

If you’d like to speak about a technology that you’ve found interesting but are not sure you have enough content for a whole session we’ll make room for ten minutes at the start.
