What we’re about

We're a Bristol based user group, with talks and events aimed at .NET developers. If you're a developer in the South West then it would be great to see you at one of our get-togethers. This group will hopefully provide a forum / hub for Bristol's diverse and thriving developer community to exchange ideas and keep up to date with the latest movements and shifts in software development. 

New members, from all backgrounds and whether you are a junior developer or the CEO of Microsoft, are always very welcome. 

So, if you enjoy technology, software development, and would like to socialise with like-minded souls, come along to one of our events.  Look forward to seeing you!

You can follow us on Twitter @dotnetsouthwest and you can catch up on past virtual talks in our YouTube Channel.

**Special Note for Recruiters**
We have 3 rules you must follow:
1) All recruiters in the .NET South West User Group must register with the leadership team.  This can be done by sending an email to with their Company’s name, who from the company will be attending (if more than one person will come), and a photo of the persons coming (a link to their LinkedIn Account can be used if they have a good headshot as their profile picture).
2) Recruiters may come to our meetups but must stay for the talks as well.  This shows respect for the craft we do.
3) Recruiters must be professional and polite with all of our members.

Failure to follow these rules can result in you and/or your company being banned/blacklisted from our meetups.
