Matt Lacey on Tour

Back in October of 2011, I dropped an email to Matt Lacey, of the Windows Phone User Group, asking whether he would be interested in doing a talk up in Scotland at the Aberdeen Developers .Net User Group.  This was a bit of a long shot, but I was always brought up with the saying, “If you don’t ask, you don’t get”, so I thought the worst that he could say would be “No”.

I am thrilled to say that Matt agreed that coming up to Aberdeen would certainly be a possibility, and in fact, he would be interested in doing a tour of the user groups up in Scotland.  Once again, with the help of the Scottish Meetup Network, I am delighted to say that we have been able to secure Matt to do 3 User Group Sessions.

The schedule for the tour breaks down as follows:

This is a very busy schedule, and hopefully you will be able to catch Matt at one of the above events.  I will update the above with links to full details of all the above events as and when they become available.

If you require any additional information about the above tour, please feel free to get in touch.

Sebastien Lambla on Tour

A couple of months back, Sebastien Lambla (@serialseb), the creator of OpenWrap and OpenRasta, emailed the Developer Pro Leader email distribution list asking whether anyone would be interested in hosting his HTTP Caching 101 presentation.  I haven’t had the privilege to see one of Sebastien’s talks, but I have heard that they are very good, and I immediately contacted him to see whether he would be interested in bringing his talk to Scotland.  I am happy to say that he said that he was very interested, however, in order to make the trip worthwhile, it would be good to do a collection of User Groups.  With the help of the Scottish Meetup Network and NxtGenUG I am delighted to say that we have been able to secure Sebastien to do 5 talks, as well as a Geek Dinner.

The schedule for the tour breaks down as follows:

A very busy schedule indeed!  Hopefully you will be able to catch one of the above talks.  I will update the information for the other talks as and when I get the information.
