You thought DeveloperDeveloperDeveloper day was the least easily pronouncable name for a community event? Well, try this on: NxtGenUG is organizing NxtGenUG – Fest07 (actually I have the suspicion that it’s harder to type than to pronounce after all)! It’s a community event, I guess, being organized by a user group, but then it’s not the same type of free event we’ve seen in the past. As a non-member of NxtGenUG it costs money to attend – I’ll be interested to see whether that works out for them.
In any case they are putting the money they get to good use, and one purpose it’s being used for is a great speaker line-up. Rafal Lukawiecki is going to be there, and that alone should be a good reason for many people to come. I’m personally hoping to be speaking as well – we’ll see how that goes. “Into the future” is also a rather innovative idea for such an event, after all we get quite a lot of talks about current technologies from various sources already.
All in all, I’m sure it’s going to be a great event, even if it’s not a freebie. So if you’re free on May 23rd, I’m looking forward to seeing you there!
