.NET Liverpool, a new gathering of tech professionals based in and around Merseyside, held its first Meet-up last Thursday.
The session, which was sponsored by The Lead Agency and held at our office on 20 Chapel Street, focused on Internationalisation and Progressive Web App Development. Talks were given by Microsoft MVPs Pete Vickers and Rick Garner in front of a room full of developers and digital professionals from the city’s biggest agencies and brands as well as members of the city’s freelance community.
The .NET meet-up was initiated by TLA developer Josh Duxbury, who was keen to bring the city’s developers together for the opportunity to learn from some of the best in the business.
“It was a great first meet-up, with two fantastic talks from Pete and Rick,” said Josh. “Feedback from those who attended has been brilliant so far and we look forward to welcoming everyone back for the next one in February.”
The next .Net Liverpool session, which takes place on Thursday 28 February, will include a talk from Microsoft Windows and Xbox MVP Simon Jackson on Building apps and games for Xbox One using UWP.
“No matter whether you’re just starting out, a seasoned professional or someone who wants to know more about .Net development, we’d love for you to join us,” Josh added. “As well as great talks from Microsoft MVPs, there is plenty of time included for meeting fellow professionals and enjoying free pizza, kindly provided by our sponsor.”
