What's Coming Up Next?

At this stage we have penciled in two talks for the November meeting on advanced TDD techniques and Aspect Oriented Programing (AOP) using PostSharp.  This will be confirmed a little closer to the date so keep an eye on the site.

Also, with the growth in numbers we may need to think about moving to a new venue in the new year.  We'll see how it goes, but if you know of a larger (and free) venue we might be able to use then please drop me a line.

P.S. Links for resources from tonight's talks and the SVN repository location will be made available on the site shortly.
