Hull Digital Developer Group - First MeetUp!

Hull Digital / Hull Open Coffee
Wed, 9 Dec 2009, 18:30 - 20:30 (Add to calendar) GMT
Hull University , Hull, GB

Welcome to the first Hull Digital Developer Group! :-)

The group is open to anyone wanting to learn and discuss development technologies and techniques. Whether you are a back-end or front-end developer, run a development shop, are a student, or simply a development enthusiast, this group will be for you.

Developers involved in the group should be open minded and not be closed to non-mainstream ideas. The group will not be dedicated to one language, but open to all, as every language can learn ideas and principles from others.

The legendary ;-) John Polling (@pollingj) is running / hosting this group so, any questions, post them here and we'll get back to you asap! It's being held at Hull University and we will confirm the address and location in the coming days.
