East Side Developer Group

One of the down-sides to living on the Illinois side of St. Louis is the lack of good technical interest groups.  If you are serious about software development, or just interested in general technology, you will have to make a trek over to the Missouri side.    The issue about going "Across the River" is not the distance or fear of driving over a bridge.  The issue is having to drive 45 minutes to get home.

After a long day at the office, I want to get home, relax, and maybe read about some code.  Going to a monthly SIG is fine, but it is that last hour which makes things so unattractive.   If only there was something on the East that last hour is not so painful.

I am in the process of securing a very good location, with easy access to the Metro Link, Internet, overhead projection, and decent room accommodations    This work-in-progress will be much easier if I had a good grasp of the number of people who may be interested in a monthly group.

If you are interested in attending, or interested in presenting, shoot me an email.  Microsoft, Java, Open Source...everyone is welcome!

I hope to have some specifics in January, 2013.

Pass the word around.
