NxtGenUG: Southampton

NxtGenUG are taking over the world, well at least the UK for the moment. They have announced that they have a new region – Southampton.

General information from NxtGenUG guys

“Then there were 5! Two months, two new regions, first Cambridge now Southampton. Yes, the Next Generation User Group (NxtGenUG) is expanding (again) and this time we’re heading South.  The latest and warmest region of NxtGenUG is Southampton.  The region is being organised and run by John McLoughlin and Rick Allen two local guys who have sourced a venue, projector, screen, pizza, swag and speakers all on their ownsome – all that a User Group needs or could ask for!

As ever when a new NxtGenUG region opens we insist on having a ‘Launch’ extravaganza, and this one is no different!  The event will be held on 18th October 2007 at St Andrew’s Hall, Southampton.  The main speaker for the evening is top UK Community speaker Guy Smith-Ferrier speaking on Astoria and there will be a SQL Nugget from Dave ‘Readyboost’ McMahon.  Pizza and Swag will be present also in abundance. All the details of the meeting are at http://www.nxtgenug.net/ViewEvent.aspx?EventID=85, and you can register for the event as always through the NxtGenUG website. Don’t miss out on this event which kicks off at 6.30pm and finishes at 9.00pm, as there is only ONE launch meeting after all.

NxtGenUG are a User Group focused on current and future technologies and provide monthly meetings in Birmingham, Cambridge, Coventry, Oxford and Southampton.  We love technology, chatting, pizza, swag, Halo 3 (well Richie Costall does) and having a laugh. If you’re in one of our areas, get along to one of our meetings and get involved in the UK Community, its well worth it socially and professionally!”

I wonder how long it will be until NxtGenUG Paris?

Don’t forget, there are a number of other great communities in the UK covering all aspects of Microsoft technology.  Visit http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-gb/aa905717.aspx for more information on your local group.
