What we're about

The Cambridge .NET User Group is a community of professional .NET developers with a strong passion for building high-quality software using Microsoft platforms and technologies.

Join our general discussions on our mailing list dotnetcambridge-list@meetup.com
See our past discussions on Mailing List Archive (http://www.meetup.com/Cambridge-NET-User-Group/messages/archive/) and on the Message Board (http://www.meetup.com/Cambridge-NET-User-Group/messages/boards/).


- Members Engagement over number of members
- Members Contribution over external experts contribution
- Constant Knowledge Sharing over sporadic events
- Collaborative learning over self-promotion
- .NET Technologies over other technologies
- Free Events over paid events
- Respect and humility over technical competence

We believe in the power of collaborative learning and we love sharing our knowledge and experiences with other members of our community. We love to discuss, share opinions, learn from mistakes and professionally grow together. We are also open-minded developers curious to explore trending technologies and languages outside the Microsoft world, learn and compare them with the familiar tools we use every day on the job.

Who should join us?
Professional .NET developers (even if you don't live in Cambridge).

Why a new community?
There a lot of very good developer communities in Cambridge but there is no community targeting specifically .NET developers. Ideally, the community should be made of people that are working on .NET every day and that are eager to learn and develop themselves through collaborative learning and presenting. There is no limit in terms of topics to discuss but we will look at them through the eyes of people who work with Microsoft technologies for the majority of their working time.

What about recruiters?

Recruiters are treated like any other members and are welcome to join the group and attend our events to learn and build their network but they need to agree on a code of conduct.

If you are a recruiter:

- You must not post job ads in the discussion forum or in the mailing list
- You must not spam the group sending job ads to our members via private messages
- You can talk about job opportunities with interested people during networking breaks at our events

If you are not a recruiter:

- Report to the organizers if you receive any unwelcome private message
- Report to the organizers any unwelcome behaviour during our events
- Report to the organizers any general concern you have about the future of the community

After repeated violations of these rules we will send a notice and if the offending behaviour continues we will ask you to leave our community.

(Online Event) - IAC using Terraform & Azure Pipelines

Online event

We treat our code with the niceties of CI / CD to ensure a smooth development lifecycle and get faster to production. In the middle, we rely on various cloud services to support our code. Why not treat those services as code as well? Why not deploy infrastructure changes as they happen with code? In this session we will explore how Terraform can be used to represent our infrastructure as code and on top of it we will use Azure Pipelines for its automatic deployment. The link to the Zoom webinar will be provided the day of the event via email and 1 hour before the meeting start. Make sure you have enabled email notifications on Meetup. https://help.meetup.com/hc/en-us/articles/360002879591-Editing-my-email-settings Agenda: • 18:30 - Networking & Quick Intro (Andrea Angella) • 19:00 - IAC using Terraform & Azure Pipelines (Dimitris Batsougiannis) • 20:00 - Speaker • 21:00 - Final networking & closing
