.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.

.NET Oxford Meetup VIII: Lightning Does Strike Twice!

After the success of our last lightning talk event in July - we decided that it was about time for another one - proving that lightning most certainly does strike twice! And like the last one, it was fantastic seeing the variation and community-feel that the lightning talk format brings.

.NET Oxford Meetup VII: Serverless in Azure

It feels like lately you can't turn around without hearing the term 'serverless'. It seems to have become the latest architectural buzzword. So we were very pleased to have Christos Matskas from Microsoft speaking at .NET Oxford about what this term actually means, and also about the awesome Serverless choices we have in Microsoft's cloud platform - Azure!
