The amazing Cam has been organizing speakers for the South Sound .NET Users Group longer than I have been a participating member. She recently received the bouncing bundle of joy visit from the stork and needs some well deserved time off. She asked if I could take over the reigns and gather up some folks to come talk to us and I readily agreed.

So, if you read my blog, are local to Olympia, WA (I’m looking at you Seattle and Portland…) and are interested in presenting to a .NET Users Group have I got a deal for you! I have one slightly cramped room and a projector with your name on it.

We meet regularly each month on the second Thursday at the Olympia Center in downtown Olympia. Meetings start at 7:00 PM and run for two hours till 9:00 PM. We usually retire to the Fish Tail Brewing Company’s pub the Fish Bowl for a few pints and conversation afterward. Speakers always drink free.

We currently have the following dates available (which are filling up fast!):
