.NET Oxford Meetup XI: A Piece of Cake

For our February .NET Oxford meetup, we definitely had a bit of a food theme going on! With Gary Ewan Park talking about the Cake build system; our primary sponsors Corriculo Recruitment providing the food variety; and if that wasn't enough, the topic of Chocolatey also came up! Is anyone getting hungry yet?

The Return of Oxford Geek Nights! #OGN45

A few years ago, there was a regular very popular tech event in Oxford called Oxford Geek Nights. Aimed at developers and designers and organised by a company called Torchbox. Obviously a regular event of this size requires a lot of commitment, and unfortunately there hasn't been one for a couple of years now. Up until now that is!!

Visiting .NET South East: Codeathon and Meetup with Richard Campbell!

Last week, I finally managed to get down to visit fellow .NET User Group .NET South East in Brighton. I'd chatted with organiser Steve Gordon quite a bit online, but hadn't yet had the pleasure of meeting him in person. He first got in touch with me last year after seeing my blog posts about .NET Oxford as he was thinking about starting his own .NET user group in his area.

My Developer Productivity Talk at .NET Oxford

In November, we had another lightning talk event at .NET Oxford, where I did a talk on Developer Productivity. I summarised the talk, in my blog post about the night, but promised that I'd do a full blog post about my talk - so here it is!

Year in Review: 2017

It's close to the end of another year already! And whilst in some ways, it feels like it has flown by - in other ways, an awful lot has happened! The main thing this year has definitely been .NET Oxford. Our first meetup was only in January, which is a very short amount of time really. It feels like it's been around for much longer!

Fira Code: My New Favorite Programming Font

Every so often I get the urge to find a new programming font. The pattern tends to be... I look for a bit, can't find anything I really like, then go back to the stock Consolas. About a year later, the same thing happens again. Then back to Consolas. And so on.

Todo lists: The right way

To-do lists are something I use very heavily. Without them, I wouldn't be able to do a fraction of what I currently manage to get done.
