.NET Oxford Meetup XVII: CosmosDB

Our .NET Oxford meetup this month was all about Microsoft's globally-distributed database, Cosmos DB - and we were very pleased to welcome James Broome and Mike Larah from Endjin to tell us all about it! It also turned out that Endjin (being a remote working team), decided to spend the day in sunny Oxford for their team catch-up. Which was perfect, as it meant that we also had the entire team joining us for the meetup!

.NET Oxford Meetup XV: Lightning Talks

Earlier this week we had our 15th .NET Oxford meetup. This time it was another lightning talk event, making it our 3rd one to date. For normal events, we have one or two long talks - but the idea behind the lightning events is that we have shorter talks, where more people can get up. I really enjoy these types of meetup, as they add much more variation and also have a great social feel!

.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?

My Developer Productivity Talk at .NET Oxford

UPDATE: Since doing this lightning talk, I have also done an extended hour-long version at a couple of the DDD conferences. The full blog post about the hour-long version of the talk can be found here. That includes everything that is in this post, plus a lot more. So probably worth reading that one instead of this!
