I just wanted to catch you all up on what the NextGen guys are up to.
Perhaps most importantly they are organizing NextGenUgFest07 this May. A one day conference held at Microsoft in Reading the NextGenUG boys are focusing ‘Into the Future’ with this event and have secured Rafal Lukawiecki, the consistently top-rated speaker for Tech Ed, from http://www.projectbotticelli.co.uk/. Having seen Rafal speak at previous Tech Ed events I can gurantee that he is very worth listening to.
Diniz Cruz, who is also a regular speaker at London .NET user group has done a podcast with the NextGenUG guys too which you can catch here or read here.
Finally I am going to be visiting the NextGenUG guys to talk about Top 5 best practices for OO in May.
