Canary Wharf .NET User Group

The CWDNUG is a monthly meetup for .NET developers, with a focus on what's relevant (and what's about to be relevant) to developers in the wharf, on the first Wednesday of every month. Expect to see topics such as:

  • WPF & Silverlight.
  • F# & other alternative languages.
  • High volume systems & complex event processing.
  • Agile tools, methodologies and experiences.
  • Open source systems that you can use (or that need your help!).
  • Upcoming releases from Microsoft (WP7, VS2010, TPL).
  • This meetup's web page is in the process of being set up, so please bear with us and keep an eye on it for any changes!

No recruiters! This user group is for developers to network with other developers in a relaxed yet highly technical and informative setting.

Events coming up

We don't have any upcoming events for this user group. Do you know this group? If so, why not submit a future event? We also support iCal, EventBrite and Meetup feeds.

  • Roughing it: IoC, AoP and Mocking without frameworks with Ashic Mahtab

    Wed, 2 May 2012, 17:30 - 19:30 in London, United Kingdom

    In this session, Ashic takes us back to basics. He will talk about howyou don't need to depend on frameworks to help you write good,testable SOLID code. There are some magicalframeworks out there which do some wonderful things, but if you cansurvive by yourself in the wilderness of your own code you will be abetter developer for it. A lot of the value that these frameworksprovide can be achieved through classic object oriented practices inand a dash of functional programming.

  • Code Contracts in .NET with Chris Marsh

    Wed, 7 Sep 2011, 17:30 - 19:30 in Poplar, United Kingdom

    Code Contracts in .NETTaking a Design by Contract (DbC) approach can help developers produce more maintainable code, by formalising the interface specification between software components. This is not a new concept, but until recently there has been no first class class support in .NET for developers wishing to take this approach. In this session we will take a look at what DbC is, and how we may have have used it in .NET development in the past.

  • How to decrease risk when designing integrated systems with Sarah Taraporewalla

    Wed, 2 Mar 2011, 18:30 - 20:30 in Poplar, United Kingdom

    How often do you get to work on completely isolated systems? It is seemingly more and more common that your system needs to talk to another system to function, whether that be a legacy system, an external API or even one that has not been developed yet. Every system that you talk to adds risk to your project; technical risk, quality risk and delivery risk. But never fear - help is at hand.
