The Future of the Sydney ALT.NET Group

Location visible to members

== This meetup is on 29 Nov from 7pm ==

Hi everyone,

It is us, your friendly Sydney ALT.NET hosts, Richard and James.

We started the group in 2008 and over the last 14 years, a lot has changed.. Especially over the last few years with covid, working from home and taking the meetups online.

Over the last year or so, we've been rather snowed up to the eyeballs with work and travel and other life commitments and haven't had enough time to properly do the group justice.

So we come to a crossroads. We can see a few ways forward and options.

A) Would anyone like to volunteer to become an organiser of the group with us, and help find speakers and run it? We would love to have your fresh ideas and help.

B) Do you want to change up the format? Do you still want presentations? Or maybe discussion of code? Help on architecture design etc? Something else?

C) Should we go back to a physical meetup? And if so, can anyone's company sponsor it with a space, and/or pizza & beer?

D) Or perhaps the time of ALT.NET is over, and we conclude that it's been a fun 14 years but time to move on.

E) Something else??

And further ideas that have come up from messages:

  1. Consider merging with regular .NET group
  2. Start online-only national group with the Melbourne ALT.NET group, potentially with less regular meetups.

Please feel free to reply on meetup, or come to our next meeting on 29 Nov where we plan to discuss the future of the group. And yes, you can come into the studio if you have something to say.. Or you can say it on chat :-)

Yours always,
James & Richard
