Meetup.com waiting list confusion: What happened?

Anyone who is subscribed to the .NET Oxford Meetup.com mailing list, would have received a group email from me last week about what looked like a bug in Meetup.com. At the time of writing that email, it appeared that Meetup was taking members from the wrong end of the waiting list when places became available!

.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?
