Working as a .NET Developer in the Southern City of Birmingham, I feel the last 6 weeks has been pretty awesome for the Birmingham Technology community. There were 3 excellent full day tech events – starting with Sloss Tech held by TechBirmingham, dotNetConf held by BHM .NET Meetup and then devdataDay held by Steel City SQL Group and BHM .NET Meetup.




{dev = data} DAY held on 20th August,2016 was a new code camp style training event in Birmingham with a focus on Microsoft technologies. The event was FREE to attend.

The event consisted of 25 total sessions related to .NET Development, SQL Server, PowerShell and Professional Development and was attended by more than 90 enthusiastic technology loving people.

We had quite an awesome group of speakers lined up for the sessions —

Sven Aelterman, Stuart Ainsworth, William Anderson, Tommy Baggett, Samir Behara, John Boulineau, Dave Franklyn, Blake Helms, Kevin Kline, Todd Miranda, Vladimir Oselsky, Bill Pearson, Tim Radney, Mike Robbins, Brandon Russell, Robb Schiefer, Rob Volk and Steven Williams.

A big thanks to Steel City SQL Group and BHM .NET Meetup for planning and organizing this event.

Both these user groups facilitate the networking of .NET and SQL Server developers in and around Birmingham. It provides an excellent opportunity to learn and share latest technologies. Also it is a great platform for developers to promote themselves and gain visibility within the growing technology community.

So if you are a .NET or SQL Server developer in Birmingham, come and be part of these awesome user groups. 

We meet on the third Tuesday of every month at Samford University campus–

Russell Hall – Third Floor
